Perhaps I'm just the nieve girl. I haven't lived long enough, I haven't yet learned how to see the bad in everyone. Instead I find myself always searching for a reason to believe.
I don't like what I hear about Rick Warren, but I do not think that this is a reason to be upset.
Reverse it. Make the setting Bush's inauguration, say that Mel White was speaking. Bush supporters would have still wanted him and the GLBT community and liberals would have probably considered giving him a chance.
Rick Warren represents part of America that Obama could not reach otherwise.
We all scream and shout that we want a President that will bring everyone together, but then continue to complain when we see it actually happening.
Again, I'm nieve. I believe that Obama knows that he is doing and I really hope I don't end up disappointed.
Please do explain this to me because I do not understand. You cannot have it both ways. Do you want a united nation or do we want to continue on a path of politics based on arguing about who's right and who's wrong?
"United we stand, divided we fall."
Think about it.
