What’s up y’all?!
I just had to comment on the new dirt. Why are gay leaders pissed off with Obama because he picked author and Evangelical Pastor Rick Warren of the best selling “Purpose Driven Life” to deliver the invocation at his inauguration?! The LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community feels as though it is a slap in their faces because of Pastor Warren’s stance on gay marriage and homosexuality in general. Now don’t get it twisted, Pastor Warren, although an Evangelical Christian, is not as conservative as most. He tries to blend personal tolerance with the biblical disapproval of homosexuality.
Personally, I don’t think that Barack made a bad choice. There are not many pastors that are pro-homosexuality except for the ones that are actually living on the DL. Anyway, as liberal as I am, I don’t see anything wrong with Obama’s choice. This is HIS inauguration not the LGBT’s, and he could have Reverend Run deliver the prayer if he wanted to! Back up off the brotha. One thing that folks have to remember is that Obama, although a democrat, is not going to be able to please every single democrat. He is not the President for black folks and he is not the President for gays, but rather the President of the United States. He has to represent errrbody…and that includes Evangelical Christians!
Side Bar-While they are trippin’, they best be glad that he ain’t get Louis Farrakhan to deliver the invocation. Nuff said…
