This poll ran for just nine days, so it had a significantly smaller sample from which to draw results than my last poll regarding winter celebrations of choice. I would run this poll longer, however, I feel that after today, the issue would not be nearly as timely. I would like to open the comment section of this post up for any debate on the the issue.
Here are the results from the poll:
- It is a state ceremony and should be free of religious references. – 24 votes
- It is the personal decision of the President-Elect, whose wishes should be respected. – 9 votes
- I could care less. – 4 votes
- This is the first I’m hearing about this. – 0 votes
I’m certainly glad there were no votes for the final option, as it had even come to the attention of national mainstream media outlets.
I thank you for taking the time to vote, and I hope that you will expand upon your votes through discussion in the comments.
P.S. If you didn’t get a chance to read the Christopher Hitchens piece on Rick Warren that appeared on Slate.com, I highly recommend it.
