HBO chose not to include Bishop Gene Robinson’s invocation in its broadcast of Sunday’s inaugural festivities, but Sarah Pulliam of Christianity Today taped the prayer for those who might like to see it.

Episcopal Café has compiled several religion writers’ thoughts on why Robinson’s prayer was not televised.
