Before President-elect Obama ever had his picture taken with Rick Warren, I did. If I can find it, I'll post it.
Obama's getting flack for inviting Warren to give the invocation at the inauguration because of Warren's conservative views, esp. in the issues of homosexuality and abortion.
Warren's sure to get flack from the extreme religious right for being "chummy" with a liberal like Obama. But, as a pastor, how do you say "No" to an invitation to give a prayer, esp. when the Bible tells us to pray for those in governmental authority?
Kudos to Obama for demonstrating some diversity. And for my bud RW, can you get me tickets?
If he had invited me to pray, I would. Just so you know.
