I understand why Barack Obama choose Rick Warren to give the invocation at the presidential inauguration. Back during the early days of the election, Warren and Obama hooked when Obama was given an opportunity to speak directly to a large wealthy evangelical audience. Obama's paying his political tab.
But Warren is simply a housebroken version of Dobson. Bligbi says it best.
He’s Dobson with a softer voice. He’s anti-woman, he’s anti-gay and yes, he’s anti-atheist. The man’s probably never met a minority group he doesn’t think deserves to be dominated by white straight protestant men like himself.
Lease we forget. Rick Warren openly endorsed California’s Proposition 8. If you judge a man by what he does, Rick Warren has lost his credibility as a moderate voice in evangelical politics. Once you lose it… it does not come back.
It’s time to sober up. Obama is not likely to champion gay marriage. His words and actions show this clearly. I’m not sure that was ever in his plan.
