The Warren Problem: Jane on CNN
Jane addresses the problems with having Pastor Rick Warren give the invocation at Barack Obama’s inaugural on CNN at this hour.
Update: Jane spoke with Rick Sanchez who repeatedly asked why “the left” would have a problem with inviting Warren to speak at the presidential inaugural. Jane told Rick what has been noted repeatedly on these pages, that Warren is a bigot that equates homosexuality with incest and bestiality. Jane went on to add that if the president elect had wanted to be inclusive, he could have invited a Muslim or Jewish cleric, or a Christian minister that was less divisive.
I will add that if Barack Obama wants to invite different voices to a discussion, fine, but that is very different from having a known homophobe give a speech at what is likely to be one of the highest profile events in recent US history. That’s not a dialogue—that’s a signal.
A bad one.
