Those who complain because their religious views were not properly represented during President Bush's inauguration need to ask themselves if the ceremony's religious aspects should be removed altogether to ensure the equality they seek.
Government ceremonies based on atheism should be the standard. That is the purest form of separation of church and state.
And that's the only way to achieve true equality.

As a Christian involved in inter-faith dialogue, I was deeply disturbed by the two Christian clergy invoking the name of Jesus Christ in their prayers at the presidential inauguration. This was not a church gathering, but a public forum for all Americans.
Ending prayers in Jesus' name is central to Christian worship. We are, however, a pluralistic nation of many faiths and we need to honor other religious traditions.

As a Christian, I say "amen" to the objections to the Christian dogmas expressed during the presidential inauguration.
I am a Boy Scouts volunteer. Scouting is open to youth of all faiths. Scout law says a scout is faithful in his religious duties and respects the beliefs of others.
That's good advice to everyone who appreciates freedom of religion in this diverse democracy.
