I’m angry. And I’m joined by some great people, like Frank Rich, New York Times columnist.
Darn you Obama! How could you ask the Reverend Rick Warren to give the invocation at your inauguration?
Warren is publicly and viciously anti gays and lesbians. He compares committed gay relationships to incest, polygamy and pedophilia.
Nothing justifies this choice, not even being open and welcoming to divergent opinions. Divergent opinions are one thing — hate language is quite another.
Tell me: how is Warren any different than the racist hatemongers? Shall we liken racism to being open and welcoming of divergent opinions? Did you invite a member of the Ku Klux Klan to participate in the inauguration? I think not.
Read Mr. Rich’s December 28, 2008 NYT op-ed column, “You’re Likable Enough, Gay People.” And, of course, the many other hues and outcries against this very bad decision by Obama. But I like Mr. Rich’s the best so far.
