Obama Defends Homophobe Rick Warren (Video)

Here's the video of President-Elect Obama defending his choice to have a bigot deliver the invocation at the upcoming inauguration. According to Obama, it's about inclusiveness. And we wait for the KKK to be invited. Pastor Rick Warren is a supporter of California's Proposition 8. Pastor Rick Warren has compared gay relationships to incest and paedophilia.

But Obama says diverse viewpoints are cool. Barack Obama also says he is "a fierce advocate for equality for gay and lesbian Americans . . It’s something I’ve been consistent on.” Really?

“Can you imagine if he had a man of God doing the invocation who had deliberately said that Jews are not going to be saved and therefore should be excluded from what’s going on in America? People would be up in arms.”
