When a President-elect invites a minister to pray at an inauguration, does that represent an endorsement of a particular religious view – or an expression that some views are legitimate and others are not? Who has not been represented at the inauguration? In this lesson, students will analyze demographic information about the clergymen who prayed at inaugurations since 1937, look for trends in those choices, and formulate possible reasons for those trends.
