Gay Activists Saddlebacked– Rick Warren Will Give Obama's Invocation
Bummer. Barack Obama threw the gay activists under the bus today and chose Evangelical Pro-Life Minister Rick Warren to give the Invocation at The Inauguration.
Andrew Sullivan reacts to Obama’s Christianist choice:
Warren is a man who believes my marriage removes his freedom of speech and cannot say that authorizing torture is a moral failing. Shrewd politics, but if anyone is under any illusion that Obama is interested in advancing gay equality, they should probably sober up now. He won’t be as bad as the Clintons (who, among leading Democrats, could?), but pandering to Christianists at his inauguration is a depressing omen.
A top liberal group hammered Obama for inviting this Christian pastor to give the invocation.
