Warren and Ahmadinejad
Wait, we approve when Obama says he will work with Iran's President Ahmadinejad, but we disapprove when he wants to work with the Rev. Mr. Rick Warren? Now, I understand that inviting someone to negotiations is different than inviting them to give the Invocation at the Inauguration, but I do see it along the same spectrum. Obama campaigned as an organizer, a bridge-builder, not as a leftist totalitarian. We should absolutely hold his feet to the fire, and work for real equality for all (asexual, bisexual, gay, heterosexual, lesbian, transgendered, and other) people, and we should support him as he does what he said he would do.
The Republican party is digging its own grave by moving farther to the right. We don't want to do the same thing, on the left. Relevance is achieved by talking, working and connecting with the majority of our country. Demonizing people does not help; naming our differences and still working on common ground does.
