Bishop Robinson On Rick Warren Pick

Episcopal Bishop (and openly gay) Gene Robinson on Obama's selection of homobigot Rick Warren for his inauguration:

“I’m all for Rick Warren being at the table,” Bishop Robinson said, “but we’re not talking about a discussion, we’re talking about putting someone up front and center at what will be the most watched inauguration in history, and asking his blessing on the nation. And the God that he’s praying to is not the God that I know.”

Obama doesn't care, Bishop Robinson. Obama is a politician and this is a calculated political move. The gay community needs to understand this in terms of politics and respond to it in a political fashion. The best way to do that is to light such a fire under Obama that this sort of political calculation (the gays will just have to swallow this) is too costly for him to make in the future.
