Warren courting

Posted By on Mon, Dec 29, 2008 at 7:58 AM

Rick Warren is better than Jerry Falwell or Pat Robertson.

So says John Brummett in his editorial this a.m. It's not saying much, but Brummett would have us cool it over Obama's choice of the fundamentalist to swear him in. And so:

And remember this: After the “amen” is said, Warren will go back to the pulpit and to write books while Obama will go the Oval Office, taking a modern and enlightened view of gays and lesbians with him. He wants civil unions, to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and to undo the military’s policy of not asking and not telling about sexual orientation.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
