So Rick Warren loves the gays, even giving them water and donuts (thanks for the diabetes), but won’t even allow the “unrepentant” ones (read “confused, sick and willing to go through electroshock like in the 1950’s) in his church. Nice.
Obama’s got to stop playing fool to these guys who have little if any desire for unification in the country. They don’t. The right wing media will be just as nasty as before and Rick Warren is simply out for power. He knows there’s a void in the leadership of the religious right and his acceptance of giving the invocation at the inauguration is simply a move towards it. It’ll probably make him the most prominent figurehead of the movement. The positive (what positive) thing about this is that it simply puts the religious right exactly where it was before–crazy and not mainstream.
