Washington National Cathedral under fire for participating in Trump’s inauguration

From Think Progress-

The Episcopal Church’s Washington National Cathedral is under fire for agreeing to lend its space—and its choir—to the inaugural festivities of President-elect Donald Trump, with members of the liberal denomination chiding leaders over the decision.

Earlier this month, the Washington National Cathedral announced that in addition to hosting its traditional interfaith prayer service the day after the inauguration, it will also allow the church’s Choir of Men, Boys and Girls to participate in Trump’s official ceremonies.

ThinkProgress has learned that, at the request of the president-elect, Saturday’s prayer service will not include a central preacher or a customary sermon—unlike similar services held for President Barack Obama.
