    Hmmmmmmm.....

    We can spin this and say that Obama The Great is reaching out to give the appearance that he is being inclusive, all is forgiven, let's all work together, it's a new day, yada, yada, yada, yada...........

    But, myself, I think it's more like Obama sayin', "Hey Preacher. We met toe-to-toe. You put your ideology out on the battlefield and so did I. You and your social army got your ass kicked. Now bend over, kiss my boots, and swear me in beotch!"

    How humilating that must be for the preacher. Myself, if I were that preacher, I'd tell Obama to go swear in himself.
    Like I said, Obama and Warren are friends, they have been long before Obama ran for POTUS.

    Not really, he looks like middle America, his views reflect the majority of Americans views. Why do you suppose Propisition 8 banning gay marriage passed in California (one of the most liberal states in America)? Because the majority of Americans think like Rick Warren. They still have morals unlike much of Europe.

    Gay marriage isn't immoral. It's un-Christian, which is why the pastor is against it.

    Your morals are no more right than a homosexuals and as such you have no right to pass your morality off onto anyone else. You THINK you're right 'just because'.

    Just as gay marriage being amoral is an opinion. Should opinions restrict the right to contract of the individual?

    Do a majority of Americans believe that Syria is a moderate state? Rick Warren does, and has visited the country praising Assad.

    Rick Warren on Syria: 'A moderate country'

    Does a majority of Americans believe that homosexuals lack character, are immature and demand multiple sex partners? Rick Warren does. Shows how ignorant the moron is.

    And that moral crap you threw at Europe. Give me a break. The US, the champion of personal rights, pisses on the rights of certain people because some religious wack jobs do not agree with their life styles. That is not only immoral but hypocritical. Funny how many of the same excuses that were used to prevent mixing of the races, are being used today. It is unnatural, it is against gods will and so on.
