Obama's people told HBO to cut Robinson's prayer out of the HBO telecast.

When asked for an explanation, HBO said via email, "The producer of the concert has said that the Presidential Inaugural Committee made the decision to keep the invocation as part of the pre-show."

Given that most Americans would watch the Lincoln Memorial celebration on TV, the decision NOT to broadcast the prayer by Robinson is something we and many others see as another slight.

AND, according to reports from people who were out at the Lincoln Memorial event, a lot of the people at the concert did NOT hear Robinson either. Apparently, there were sound "difficulties" and most of the estimated 500,000 in the audience could not hear his invocation. Only those very close to the stage could hear.

May I ask for proof that the Obama committee asked them to do this?

Youtube links don't qualify as proof for much of anything.

What was in the prayer that is so conspiratorial that Obama "didn't want us to see it on TV"?

No article. It's just a video on youtube.

Articles are not hard to find and to post on this particular Forum it is required. This is the Alternative Breaking News Forum.

It is true however and click on this text to go to the article quoted below.

The Presidential Inauguration Committee today apologized for not broadcasting yesterday's invocation by the Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson.

“We had always intended and planned for Rt. Rev. Robinson’s invocation to be included in the televised portion of yesterday’s program. We regret the error in executing this plan


Another article about the prayer and the person giving it.

Sarah Pulliam

WASHINGTON -- Gene Robinson, the divisive figure who was the first openly Episcopal gay bishop, led the invocation at today's inaugural kickoff.

Robinson prayed for God to "bless this nation with anger – anger at discrimination, at home and abroad, against refugees and immigrants, women, people of color, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people." He also prayed that God would bless us with "the understanding that our new president is a human being, not a messiah."

Here is more info and it seems it will be aired after all.

DeSnubbed: Robinson Prayer Will Air Tomorrow

It's our bad.

Barack Obama's inaugural committee is taking for the blame for a scheduling miscue that left gay Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson's prayer out of HBO's live broadcast of yesterday's inaugural megaconcert.

Robinson, the first openly gay Anglican church bishop, called Obama's selection of conservative Rick Warren to give the inaugural invocation a "slap in the face."

So observers noticed immediately when Robinson's prayer wasn't broadcast by HBO.

Openly gay bishop?

20 JAN 09=The first day of the destruction of the United States of America.

And what kind of prayer starts out with "God bless this nation with anger?"

For all those who supported and voted for Obama: You're going to sorry.
