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.
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?
