About That Rick Warren Guy

President-Elect Obama's choice of Rick Warren to give the invocation at the inauguration in less than a month has give the gay & lesbian communities and many liberals quite a lot of distress lately.

I think there's some good ideas about staying focused on what you believe in and still wanting to end this ugly divisiveness which has plagued the U.S. for too long and polarized us into bitter camps which see the end of civilization whenever the other side wins an election.

Just sayin'
