Do you have the TiVo set to record the historic presidential inauguration? If not, you may miss the world’s worst attempt at being P.C.

obama-messiahOriginally, the BarackStar chose a controversial source for enlightenment – Rick Warren – to kick off his administration in prayer.

Not such a problem, right? He figures that dude isn’t that well known for preaching in the name of Jesus, so his GLBT faction won’t get so terribly upset. Yeah, not so much.

So, he gets frantic. What can he do to appease the atheists, calm down the liberals and get his homosexual voters down from the edge. Ah, according to WOW News’ The Seeker, have an openly gay Bishop pray for him too. Yeah, that’ll fix ’em.

On Sunday, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop will offer a prayer at the Lincoln Memorial at an inaugural event for President-elect Barack Obama. The selection of New Hampshire Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson for Sunday’s event follows weeks of criticism from gay-rights groups over Obama’s decision to have Warren pray at his Jan. 20 inauguration.

And just for kicks, “Bishop” Robinson doesn’t even plan to pray with the Bible citing issues the KJV doesn’t match his shoes:

“While that is a holy and sacred text to me, it is not for many Americans,” Robinson said. “I will be careful not to be especially Christian in my prayer. This is a prayer for the whole nation.”

Uh, yeah. About that? Either you are an ordained Bishop in the very Church that supposedly calls Jesus Christ, LORD, or you just dig wearing black because it makes you look like an ar-teest. And if so, please sit down and shut up!

Well, that’s what I say. Rick Warren has said something too, but eh, it’s all kosher to him:

President-elect Obama has again demonstrated his genuine commitment to bringing all Americans of good will together in search of common groud,” he said in a statement to Christianity Today reported on the magazine’s Politics Blog. I applaud his desire to be the president of every citizen.’

Aw shucks. You know, I thought when he won the election, his desire to “be president of every citizen” was kind of a moot point. He is president of every citizen, but even politicians have to stand on something. That is, unless there’s room on that fence you are currently practicing your balancing act upon. Hrm?

So, in case you have been buried under a rock somewhere in the middle of the Sahara Desert, under some sand and without a GPS unit, you would have heard Ted Haggard has been in the news.

nancy-pelosiOne day, he is one of the most influential men in Christendom. The next, he is lathered up with baby oil calling some dude name Mike, “Me-chelle, My Belle.”

And while he is out pimping his horrific story to any publisher and TV network with a pulse, he found a new BFF in the world’s least likely place for a Christian – Capitol Hill and its Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, according to WOW News’ and CBN’s David Brody.

Talk about reaching across the aisle! Now here’s an odd pair. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reached out to fallen pastor Ted Haggard through her daughter. Confused?

Very nice. Keep rocking with that big brain, Dave. Next?

In an interview with me this afternoon, Haggard—a onetime friend and former occasional guest at George W. Bush’s White House—says the support from the Pelosi family is one reason he’s much more favorable about Democrats and their agenda today than before his fall. His change of economic circumstances also played a big role in the process.

[Insert your favorite Scooby Doo “ri-ron’t-ro-Raggy” sound here]. This girl probably has a smoking card fresh with ACLU invisible ink in her purse, but she made time to make an appointment for this guy?! Well, not if you ask her personally… namely if your name is David Brody.

Ah well, at least he can add one person to his Christmas list. Whether the card gets to her door is another story all together, but never mind that right now.

In the 36 years since Roe V. Wade (January 22, 1973), abortion is probably still the most highly contested not only in the nation, but also in the Church.

No, really. Being “religious” or “spiritual” is of no consequence. To this day, only 40 percent want to make abortion illegal in “all or most cases”. As in, you know, way more than that.

Recently, the Pew Forum found that most religious traditions is either one side of the proverbial fence… or the other. Huh? Let’s see, biblical dogma says life STARTS at the moment of conception, not delivery. So, one would think the dark gray “illegal in most cases” would be blinding.

Nah, not in this uber-PC world in which we live! Folk think zygotes don’t have a pulse, and that stupid technology called sonograms is actually just one of those ViewMasters and it’s all fake. So, where would the majority of your “faith” fall – not just denominations, but those affiliations as well?

BTW, I need to renew my subscription to the “Watchtower”, because some of those folk know where they stand. See for yourself:
