WARREN AT THE INAUGURAL: ONE MORE REASON TO BE UPSET
Yes, I'm disgusted that Rick Warren will give the invocation at Barack Obama's inaugural.
I don't have much to add to the reasons you already know about. The support for Proposition 8 and the comparison of gay marriage to child rape, incest, and polygamy. The cheerleading for a strike on Iran in God's name. The declaration that atheists shouldn't hold office. The decision to let his pal Bush slide on torture even as he harangued Obama on abortion.
I'll add one more -- a statement he made about God in an interview with Beliefnet's Steven Waldman that Waldman correctly calls "a possibly veiled slap at Islam":
"He could have made us all puppets. ... He could have put us on strings and we'd pray five times a day and we'd have no choice." Watch.
Ugh. Give him the hook, Barack.
