Catching up my thoughts on Rick Warren at Inauguration…

So, I’m one of those people who is livid with the Rick Warren pick for the Invocation at Obama’s Inauguration.  Frankly, the fact that there are interludes of prayer at a civil ceremony irritates me enough as it is (I’ll blog about that within the next two weeks), but to then invite a homophobic, non-inclusive […]
