Obama, Maybe He’s Not the Best Choice

Barack Obama has pissed of the gays and we are not going to accept it quietly. In choosing Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration, he has chosen an advocate of hate against our huge segment of the population, a segment that played a significant role in his election. If it’s true that we are who we surround ourselves with, then this isn’t a good sign of judgement at all and it concerns me.

Here’s an excerpt of the story below:

Rick Warren, the senior pastor of Saddleback Church in southern California, opposes abortion rights but has taken more liberal stances on the government role in fighting poverty, and backed away from other evangelicals’ staunch support for economic conservatism. But it’s his support for the California constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage that drew the most heated criticism from Democrats Wednesday. 

“Your invitation to Reverend Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at your inauguration is a genuine blow to LGBT Americans,” the president of Human Rights Campaign, Joe Solomonese, wrote Obama Wednesday. “[W]e feel a deep level of disrespect when one of architects and promoters of an anti-gay agenda is given the prominence and the pulpit of your historic nomination.”
