Bishop Robinson's mike cut at inaug concert

Posted on 18 Jan 2009 at 10:26pm

The Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire, Gene Robinson, was slated to open the concert with prayer – but then things went awry.

Here’s a podaster’s recording of the SNAFU.

Crowd showing “WE CAN’T HEAR!!”

Reportedly, the loudspeakers were cut at the Lincoln Memorial during Robinson’s prayer, so no one there could hear the gay bishop pray. The loudspeakers were not turned back on until Robinson said, “Amen.”
