Agent of change or purveyor of bigotry: Obama inauguration to feature Rick Warren


Yes, we can!

That was the rallying cry throughout Obama’s “agent of change” campaign for the White House. Despite his promises to the contrary, Obama will bring no change to the nation on Jan. 20, when he allows the conservative, anti-gay Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration.

The question now is “Yes, we can do what?” If the answer is “peddle more religion-based prejudice, fear and discrimination,” then maybe Obama really isn’t that “agent of change” he always said he was.

According to Right Wing Watch:

As we’ve pointed out several times before, in 2004 Warren declared that marriage, reproductive choice, and stem cell research were “non-negotiable” issues for Christian voters and has admitted that the main difference between himself and James Dobson is a matter of tone.  He criticized Obama’s answers at the Faith Forum he hosted before the election and vowed to continue to pressure him to change his views on the issue of reproductive choice.  He came out strongly in support of Prop 8, saying “there is no need to change the universal, historical defintion of marriage to appease 2 percent of our population … This is not a political issue — it is a moral issue that God has spoken clearly about.” He’s declared that those who do not believe in God should not be allowed to hold public office

RWW asks, “So why has this man been tapped to deliver the invocation at Obama’s inaguration?
