The gay community is up in arms today, this time complaining because who they thought would be the champion for their immoral agenda –Obama– invited a well-known conservative, Rick Warren, to do the ceremonial prayer at his inauguration.
President-elect Barack Obama’s choice of Rick Warren to deliver the inaugural invocation drew one kind of protest. Whether the evangelical pastor offers the prayer in the name of Jesus may draw another. At George W. Bush’s 2001 swearing-in, the Revs. Franklin Graham and Kirbyjon Caldwell were criticized for invoking Christ. The distinctly Christian reference at a national civic event offended some, and even prompted a lawsuit.
Warren did not answer directly when asked whether he would dedicate his prayer to Jesus. In a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press, Warren would say only that, “I’m a Christian pastor so I will pray the only kind of prayer I know how to pray.”
“Prayers are not to be sermons, speeches, position statements nor political posturing. They are humble, personal appeals to God,” Warren wrote. His spokesman would not elaborate.
Now this admittedly comes as a surprise, since Obama has proven to have morals more aligned with those of secularism and socialism, granted his non-stop advocating of murdering babies, redistributing wealth to those who are sloths and don’t work and of course, promoting the gay agenda by supporting gay marriage.
It’s important to realize those who support the gay lifestyle tend to be anarchists and want politics to change at their whim, much as they try to bend natural order to their liking. Obama’s calling Rick Warren to do the prayer should not be seen as him seeing the light. It’s simply some sort of devious political maneuver.
The important thing here is that on inauguration day, Rick Warren lets gays know that we are a nation founded on the principles of Christianity. God and country. That is what made America great and will lead is to prominence once more.
