Obama [Hearts] Rick Warren?

For reasons that escape me, sack-of-crap right-wing Christianist pastor Rick Warren will be delivering a prayer at Barack Obama's inauguration. Think Progress reports:

While he is a recognizable celebrity and best-selling author, Warren also advocates a number of deeply anti-progressive views. He supported California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8 and has likened gay marriage to polygamy and incest. He is strongly anti-choice, and has equated abortion to the Holocaust.
Why? In hopes that he'll wheeze something about climate change while he prays? I expect he won't.

This is not a matter of tolerance or intolerance; of all the religious leaders in the country -- many of them more or less reasonable and genuinely compassionate human beings -- Obama is inviting this particular sack of crap to join him on the same stage from which he'll accept the keys to the White House.

Why?

Dale, not to mention he supports the assassination of foreign leaders. So much for 'Thou shalt not kill."
