Back around the time of the inauguration of President Barry Obama, I posted a couple of videos, one showing the prayer offered at the first inaugural celebration event, by the unrepentant and actively homosexual Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, and then one showing the opening prayer that was offered by Rick Warren at the actual swearing in. It was and is my opinion that the Robinson invocation, in all its weirdness, was a peace offering to the GLBTQ lobby, who were so outraged over the early-on selection of Warren to have the larger stage event, given his support of California’s Proposition 8 that defined marriage as between one man and one woman.
Well, it seems the posturing around prayer has much deeper roots than one might have speculated simply based on the selection of the inauguration week pray-ers. Now it seems that any and all prayers offered at events “starring” Barry must be vetted by the White House before their delivery. Read about it at U.S. News and World Report and at Al Mohler’s commentary.
This matter is significant when you have the president of a Christian seminary finding a basis for agreement with a notorious atheist who seeks generally to rid our nation of any references to religion, and especially Christianity.
With each day that goes by, I am actually more optimistic about the 2010 and 2012 elections. I am given to believe that Barry might actually be a one term president!
