According to FOX News, a weekend of religious-themed 9/11 memorial observances at Washington National Cathedral will include a Buddhist nun, a rabbi, a Hindu priest, an incarnate lama, and an Imam. No evangelical Christian minister has been invited, causing Frank Page of the Southern Baptist Convention to ask President Obama to reconsider attending the event. “It’s not surprising,” said Page. "There is a tragic intolerance toward Protestants and particularly toward evangelicals and I wish the president would refuse to speak unless it was more representative.” Richard Weinberg, the Cathedral’s director of communications, confirmed that neither Southern Baptists nor other evangelical denominations were extended an invitation to participate. “The goal was to have interfaith representation. The Cathedral itself is an Episcopal church and it stands to reason that our own clergy serve as Christian representatives.”
