Just a random comment....

At the risk of being verbally abused I have a thought that has been bothering me. I am aware that those advocates who are out there to watch out for my rights as a gay man and father have to pay attention to everything that happens. With that said, I feel that the "hype" around the president - elect's choice for a minister for his invocation is making us seem as non-inclusive as we accuse the "other side" of being. I do understand our need to monitor what is going on and to pay attention but can we just exclude this guy because his views don't mirror our own? I don't know..but I do have this feeling that is what we are doing.

Good point! I don't actually have a problem with Rick Warren participating, even though I certainly don't agree with his position on Prop H8. I, too, share the sentiment about including a variety of positions in the activities of the next administration. What will matter most to me is not who disagrees with me, but that when it comes down to it, our rights are promoted as well.

I totally agree with you! Thank you for saying that! I thought about it for a while when he was getting all that flack...but if he is truly accepting and non-partisan...then as long as the guy didn't break the law, he should be welcome as well. On the other hand, as I was writing this I just thought to myself...would he have been invited if he had been spreading anti-black rhetoric?
