I still support him and I do not regret voting for Obama. I really believe he is the right person to be there right now, but what the feck was he thinking when he asked Pastor Warren to give the inaugural invocation? The man has equated a woman's right to choose to the Holocaust, LBGT with pedophilia and incest, and opposes stem cell research. Many, many of Obama's supporters SUPPORT those three very important issues. I know he's not perfect and he said he'd reach across the aisle, but he has basically invited this person into our homes. Coming on the heels of Prop8, esp. this is like a slap in the face to all who support LBGT rights, nevermind women's rights and health research that could save millions of people. I suppose if he had to mis-step, this will be seen as minor, but I do not like it and am disappointed.

Well, he's got the left and the middle, now he wants the religious right. Surprised? He's a politician. And a smart one, too. The number one issue in the US right now is the economy, and plenty of people with right-of-center social views are open to progressive ideas regarding economics, etc. And you may want to think twice before you demonize people who don't agree with you on some very contentious issues.

What Obama was thinking, I believe, was exactly what he's been talking about all during his campaign: reaching beyond our political divisiveness and inviting dialogue with those with whom we have strong disagreements.   Rick Warren is not the only religious leader invited to participate in the Inauguration ceremonies, and he won't be speaking on partisan political issues. He'll deliver the invocation, which will no doubt be worded in a pretty ecumenical fashion.

Obama has said he welcomes support from Evangelical Christians, and quite a few of them, especially the younger ones, are far less authoritarian and more progressive (or at least moderate) politically than even Rick Warren.   Obama does not want to cede the whole of "born-again" Christianity to the Right wing of the Republican Party.   

While he is quite reactionary on some issues, Rick Warren has diverged strikingly from other conservative Christian Republicans such as Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and James Dobson.
He gives away 90% of his income and does not preach or buy into the meme that "God wants you to be successful, so being rich is a sign of God's favor."   His ministry emphasizes responsibility for helping those in need, both in our country and in other parts of the world. And he is trying to get the church to be proactive in fighting global warming.

More to the point (re his being part of Obama's inauguration), Rick Warren is probably seen by most Christian conservatives as the #1 religious leader in our country. His presence at Obama's inauguration -- which, BTW, is opposed by most of the far-right Christian leaders -- probably makes conservative Christians more open to wartching the inauguration and just maybe giving Obama a chance.      I'll bet a lot of them may hear Obama's inaugural address who would not have, had Obama had the invocation given by someone they perceive as "liberal."

Obama will not be able to bring about much of anything in the way of progressive change if he has 30 to 40% of the country fearing or hating him and what they expect his "agenda" to be.   I think the inclusion of Warren (a far better choice that that of Franklin Graham by Dubya) sends a strong message of unification.

But Thom Hartmann explains this view better than I can:
Thom Hartmann on Rick Warren as Obama inaugural invocation deliverer

I'd been thinking pretty much along these lines, in spite of hearing mostly bashing from liberals, the GLBT community, and many Democrats.   Then when I tuned in to Thom's radio show this morning, he put my perception of it into better words than I had come up with.   Give a listen, then tell me if you see this choice as a "WTF!!??.

I think it's very worrying - some (and I'm sceptical) reactionary alleged Christians may themselves be good people, but it seems to me that their leaders are pretty close to wholly evil. This one may be one of the less evil ones, but who sups with the devil should use a long spoon.

Letting the man give a speech is entirely consistent with Obama's commitment to wide-spectrum poltiics. And let me point out thatbeing a better politican is why we hired him. You guys are projecting your own internal catastrophes on the world and not reasoning the thing out. He's not appointing Warren to something; he's merely demonstrating that, unlike Bush's discordant and half-crazed gang, he is not excluding other points of view than his own. This shows him to be a bigger person than the half-assed reaction-driven partisan crowds who are so anxious tot hrow stones that they will throw them at imaginary people.

It is likely that as he breaks trail through the jungle of deceit and irresponsibility left behind in the national garden by Bush and company, he will disappoint some people some of the time. I don't see how it can be avoided.

But keep some perspective, here, and I think you will find he will do as good a job as any man alive could do in the position he is in.
GfS and Ake notwithstanding--neither of them have suggested any policies or programs that would make a difference, but have limited themselves to caterwauling their melancholy songs of disgruntled bad-mouthery ad nauseam, like a pair of wet and homeless alleycats in estrus in some dark trash-strewn alley of life.

For those who consider a religious component important, they may be pleased. I would prefer the religion to be excluded from the matters of state, so I won't listen to Warren. The process of making government is like that old sausage analogy--something you may not want to watch.

I am not demonising anyone. Some of you may be right, I suppose. I have been pleased with the pragmatic approach Obama has taken, but this one, again, in light of the recent passage of Prop8, really doesn't go down well, at all. He can reach across the aisle, surely, without excluding a strong base of his own supporters.

When someone has as much influence as Warren, it can be dangerous for those he opposes, imo. That influence is evident in this article.

Genie, I tried listening to that, but mostly heard commercials and a bunch of stuff about Bush. How many minutes in is it where he talks about this?

Warren's largest black-mark in the eyes of the left is that he was "one of the generals" in the mobilization to overturn the State of California's Constitutional right for people of the same sex to marry each other. In doing so, he pl,aced himself squarely in the anti-gay camp in the eyes of millions who interpret his position as rank discrimination and denial of core civil status.

From this point of view, choosing Warren was a poltiical error. On the other hand, there are probably more right-wing churchies in the United States than there are LGBT, so perhaps it was a political tradeoff, and a bit of the old sausage-manufacturing. Giving someone space to give a speech is not an endorsement ofhis other views.

"but have limited themselves to caterwauling their melancholy songs of disgruntled bad-mouthery ad nauseam, like a pair of wet and homeless alleycats in estrus in some dark trash-strewn alley of life."

Whoaah!!! What spectacular and devastating verbiage. Even Woody Allen would be reduced to a brief stunned silence by that, followed by some sarcastic but hopelessly inadequate attempt on his part at a clever comeback. Amos, you have done it again. You really should write for the New Yorker or some such prestigious periodical.

I, for one, am rather miffed that Obama has yet failed to appoint a single chimpanzee, gorilla, orangutan, baboon or monkey to participate in either his cabinet or his inauguration. He has shut out the primates of America (I use the expression "primate" in the colloquial sense...not the literal one...since human beings are themselves primates by literal definition...anyway, you know what I mean.) Oh sure, it would offend some people if he did that. Well, tough! You can't be president without offending someone unless you do absolutely nothing at all....and then even THAT will offend some people.

The real mystery here is whether Obama can EVER manage to do anything that will make the few people here who are dead set against him happy or some of those who adore him unhappy. Either way it's highly unlikely. It would require them altering a fixed mental habit and abandoning their faith. But.....anything is possible, right?

I'd like to weigh in, but Genie has already said just about everything I've got. Almmost...

During the months and years after Katrina, I met hundreds of incredibly selfless and highly-energized volunteers who traveled at their own expense to perform hard labor rebuilding the homes of devastated families. Almost every single such person was affiliated with some kind of church, and while a few were mainstream-Protestant or Catholic, the vast majority were more-or-less fundamentalist/evangelical types.

I have a different set of ideas about a number of social-justice issues than most such folks ~ and really different ideas about warfare ~ but I recognize that they are commited to following their consciences at last as seriously as I am, whatever our differences.

It should NOT be assumed that the churches of the United States will always be persuaded to make common cause with right-wing politicians promoting economic and social inequality. Such alignments can change, and in fact MUST change, and soon. For such a seismic social shift to occur, of course, will demand a virtual bombardment of psychological shock and awe. I think Obama is moving in a very interesting and potentially very positive direction.
