Frank Rich Castigates Obama Over Warren

Frank Rich in today's New York Times laments Obama's choice of homobigot pastor Rick Warren. Obama is starting out his presidency "on the wrong side of history," writes Rich. So true, and not good.

Warren’s defamation of gay people illustrates why, as does ourpresident-elect’s rationalization of it. When Obama defends Warren’s words by calling them an example of the “wide range of viewpoints” in a “diverse and noisy and opinionated” America, he is being too cute by half. He knows full well that a “viewpoint” defaming any minority group by linking it to sexual crimes like pedophilia is unacceptable.
