I completely understand why a lot of people are pissed. Don't get me wrong. I don't think that it deflates any promises, either. In fact, the choice of Warren has put Obama out there saying that he "Strongly supports" gay rights, which is more of an affirmation than we've gotten from any president. I still see this as Obama recognizing that we are ALL Americans here, even if we have some pretty fucking fundamental differences of opinion on some issues. Maybe I'm just still mad at Bush for completely leaving the other side out of the conversation that i see this as a breath of fresh air and a hope that we actually elected the "uniter, not a divider" this time around. That being said, Rick Warren can fuck himself in his self-righteous ass.

i dunno casey. Warren's a pretty big deal among the evangelical set, like it or not. You're going to find this sort of anti-gay stuff from MOST conservatives. It's just the reality of the country we live in. I'm not HAPPY that Warren is going to give a parayer at this thing and i think he's a dick of colossal proportions when it comes to his views on gays. I think it's a pretty shrewd move on Obama's part, though. Doing stuff like that brings him onto BARRY'S side, not the other way around. That's the way you bring about change. And that's what's going to push gay rights over the finish line sooner than later.
