In and effort to appease the Right and do some bridge building to the conservative evangelicals, Obama asked Rick Warren to pray at the inauguration. He infuriated the Left with the choice. Read about it here.
What always amazes me is the number of people speaking out of both sides of their mouths about controversial issues. For example, in the above mentioned article “president of People for the American Way, Kathryn Kolbert,…described Warren as ‘someone who has in recent weeks actively promoted legalized discrimination and denigrated the lives and relationships of millions of Americans.'”
I’d like to know what she would have to say about all the kids who go to school and get in trouble for reading their Bible during study hall or lunch. Yet when a Muslim student needs a room specially set aside for them to pray 3 times during the school day, that student gets what they need right away. Can’t have discrimination there. But it is okay to discriminate against the Christian student?
