I am always amazed at the brazen stupidity shown by those on the Left. Of all the people to demonize, they’ve now picked evangelical pastor Rick Warren. The controversy concerns the fact that President-elect Obama has picked him to give the invocation at the inaugeration in January. This, of course, has enraged the homosexual lobby and they’re not too happy with their “messiah” right now. Like a bunch of spoiled brats, they’re throwing a fit because they didn’t get their way on everything.
But seriously, Rick Warren? I’ve been watching the looney Left in the MSM react to this, particularly Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. It’s really amusing to see them flip out over this, comparing Warren to the likes of Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. That’s how out of touch these people really are. To be sure, I’ve certainly had many disagreements with Warren myself, but it’s beyond ridiculous to say he’s anything like Falwell.
Honestly, I hope the Left continues to bash Warren and voice their self-righteous outrage. It only shows the rest of the country how fanatical they really are. The homosexual lobby certainly isn’t being helped when obnoxious ideologues like Olbermann are lecturing Americans about how we need to foster “tolerance” by being intolerant of certain religious beliefs. And that’s what this is really about at the end of the day. This is bigger than Warren. This is about the Left’s systematic strategy to demonize conservative Christians and drive us out of society.
Obama said before and after the election that he wants to help bring America together. He says he wants to reach out to everyone and represent even those who didn’t support him. This certainly sounds like political posturing, but it seems like he’s at least trying to keep this promise. It also shows that the radical homosexual lobby won’t have quite the influence they thought they would. Obama is definitely a Leftist, but he’s also a realist. He knows that his decision won’t cause the homosexuals to abandon the Democratic Party in droves. They’ll get over it and he’ll probably make up for it by signing pro-homosexual legislation into law.
For now, I’m going to enjoy this latest controversy while it lasts. Let the homosexual lobby show everyone who they truly are: a fanatical group of self-righteous statists who want to use the power of civil government to impose their morality through unconstitutional Federal legislation and programs. If they truly want equity (and they don’t), then they would take the conservative/libertarian approach of getting civil government out of the marriage business entirely. Of course they don’t want that because it doesn’t serve their interests of using government for social engineering purposes.
