Inauguration of Hate

Oy. Rick Warren, of Saddleback Church fame, will give the invocation at Obama's inauguration. What an awful gesture on Obama's part, a shameful gesture. Ugh. Blech. I assume it's an attempt to "unify" the nation, to reach out and demonstrate that he intends to be the leader of the entire nation, not just of Democrats. And, significantly, a calculating political move designed to bring more conservatives into the Democratic fold.

Isn't Obama more clever than this? This is the only way he could imagine to accomplish those goals for his party? There will now be a fundamentalist Christian who wants to use the literal word of the Bible as a blueprint for public policy inaugurating my President? I'm getting Jewish-y shivers.

Shame on Barack Obama. Oy.

    Thanks for your comments. That's immensely helpful and considerate.

  3. The SaddleBack church has a detailed list of its beliefs on line. They are biblical literalists when it comes to gays, but they don't mention mixing fibers or a host of other mitzvot. They are even evolution deniers. If this group is representative of the intellectual depth of our country, God help us indeed.
