what? rick warren?

I have to say, I am dissapointed in Obama's choice for the invocation giver at the inauguration is Rick Warren, Saddleback Church in California. He is rabidly anti-gay. I think if the administration wanted to reach across the aisle, which I am totally for, I think a less radical evangelical would have been nice.
I think what would have been wonderful for the Change agenda would have been to include a rabbi, priest, imam, and pastor...and some of them WOMEN.

hmm. my word verication is "phinc" which sounds like "fink"

I'll look him up as I've never heard of him. You're right - it's better to have a multi-faith and inclusivs kind of invocation. Last night we had a lovely conversation with an Iranian couple at a barbeque. That's the way the world should be.

My thoughts exactly. When I heard that I thought, WHAT? Really a bad way to start off with the gay community. (and pro choice women, btw.)
