Melissa Etheridge Is Dead Wrong On Rick Warren

Out lesbian rocker Melissa Etheridge has defended Obama's selection of Rick Warren for his inaugural. But over at Huffington blogger Cathy Brooks tells why Etheridge is wrong:

It's not that Warren doesn't seem charming. It's not that he's necessarily even a bad person. It's that in accepting him the way she did, she is giving an implicit buy-in to his not-always-well-camouflaged bigotry. And by putting him at the lectern for the inauguration Obama does the same.
