Along with Warren, why not invite the Ku Klux Klan?

Now that President-elect Barack Obama invited Rick Warren to give the inaugural invocation, will he now appoint someone from Ku Klux Klan to speak. After all, Warren is a hate monger who backed Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in his home state of California. According to The Wichita Eagle, Dec. 23, 2008:

Rick Warren's critics: other evangelicals

BY RACHEL ZOLL

Rick Warren is in a place he never expected to be: at the center of a culture war.

The pastor chosen by President-elect Barack Obama to give the inaugural invocation backed Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in his home state of California. But he did so belatedly, with none of the enthusiasm he brings to fighting AIDS and illiteracy.”

The article goes on to say that a lot of evangelicals are unhappy that he’s not more hateful and for the spreading of aids. But for a lot of us, he is hateful enough. There is no need to include anti-gay bigots in our political landscape. There is no reason we should listen to the likes of Rick Warren.
