Rick Warren. Really?!?!
I, like many other Obama supporters, am livid about the whole Rick Warren dustup. I've read some pretty articulate arguments about why I shouldn't be so angry (like Andrew Sullivan's over at the Daily Dish), but I'm not buying it.
Not only does this guy guy hold hostile views towards gays and lesbians, compare abortion to The Holocaust, support abstience-only projects in Africa, ect., but he doesn't believe in evolution. Aren't we tired yet of giving these mutants a platform for their destructive ideology? Here's a great take on why this decision sucks. (via Glenn Greenwald at Salon).
Side Note: Doesn't Obama ever hold a grudge?! This dude ambushed him at that Saddleback forum in August. Cone of Silence my ass.
