Rick Warren picked for inauguration

Barack Obama chose Rick Warren to give the invocation at his inauguration. The AP is reporting that not everyone is happy about this. Some liberal groups who are advocates of gay rights are very upset. I'm sure that some conservative Christians are not happy with Warren for being agreeable with Obama.

I am glad that they both represent a willingness to dialogue with others who think differently. This is better then those who shoot arrows from a far, but never get in close enough to get to know people who are different then them. This will upset the extreme left or the extreme right who don't see a point in trying to understand each other.

How do you feel that Obama chose Pastor Warren to be a part of the inauguration?

I think it's much ado about nothing, personally. it's not like he's asking him to sit on his cabinet or make policy decisions. He's saying a prayer at the beginning of the inauguration.

it's so hypocritical how intolerant the far left is when that's their main beef against the far right...
