If i had to give president elect Barack Obama one piece of advice it would be to refrain from affiliating himself with religious leaders.
The first time this became a problem for him was when the pastor of his church, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, A man who has a history of giving inflammatory sermons and posses a hatred for America that would make even the Taliban blush, Gave a sermon in which he damned America, The country he resides in, and claimed they had "brought on" the September 11th attacks.
Well, it looks like Obama hasn't learned from this particular mistake and has given the task of inaugural invocation to Rev. Rick Warren, a man who, In his own words, thinks homosexuality, Paedophilia and incest are "equivalent" and a man who worked on passage of California's Proposition 8, Which is a proposition making gay marriage a criminal offence.
Rev. Rick Warren's own website stated, before this shit storm erupted and they pulled it, That homosexual people can't be members of his Saddleback Church.
This is the kind of lazy mistakes we would have expected from Bush, after all, he was a cretin and he didn't care who knew it, but Obama is supposed to have a little more sense. And it's even more disappointing when we remember the speech he done on the importance of a secular government, which makes his allegiance with such radical religious leaders even more surprising.
