Obama's First Big Eff-UpSorry, but asking a leading member of the American Taliban to deliver the invocation at the inauguration is a bad move. (Why do we need an invocation at a public event anyway? But that's another can of worms.)
Rick Warren doesn't believe in evolution, equates gay marriage with child rape, and is adamantly against stem cell research He said that Christians who support environmental causes are Marxists. He has declared that those who do not believe in God should not be allowed to hold public office.
In other words, Rick Warren is a fucking idiot and a liar.
And evangelicals will never, ever vote for Democrats because of the abortion thing. So its not a smart political move, no matter what the MSM may say.
Obama had a chance to set a non-sectarian, progressive tone at the inauguration. I'm extremely disappointed that he has chosen to kowtow to the fundamentalists.
Dumb move. I'm pissed.
