It's Un-Warren-ted

I'm beginning to wonder if I wasted a vacation day when I decided to go to New Hampshire on election day to work for Obama. I don't know what he was thinking, or if he was thinking, when he invited Rev. Rick Warren to give the invocation at the inauguration. Obama says we have to listen to all viewpoints, but when they are based on hatred and fear-mongering, I don't agree. Warren is certainly entitled to his views and his theology, but some of his homophobic rhetoric has been nothing short of scary. Inviting him to participate in this very public platform has the effect of giving some legitimacy to his philosophy.

Bad move, Obama...bad move.
