Barack Obama & Rick Warren

artobamawarrengiFor those of you who have not yet heard, Barack Obama has chosen Evangelical(!) pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at the Presidential inauguration in January. I must admit that I respect this move by Obama. Whatever his motivations may be, he is taking a lot of heat from liberals and this is an intentional move (the way I see it) to work with people that on issues such as abortion and homosexuality often disagree with him. Let us hope this spirit of collegiality persists. See this article on the CNN site.

One Response to Barack Obama & Rick Warren

  1. Daniel says:

    This is also taking a lot of heat from Christians. But I don’t think that’s warranted. I would much rather have an orthodox Christian like Warren say an orthodox prayer in front of millions rather than say, Depak Chopra.
