The latest flap seems to be over the Reverend Rick Warren. Why? He has been asked to give the Inaugural Invocation for President-Elect Barack Obama.
So who all is flapping? It seems like just about everyone if TV is to be believed. The left is howling because they say that Reverend Warren is anti gay and is a speaker of hate. The right is growling because they say the Reverend Warren is catering to the far left and should not be appearing with Barack Obama.
Now I think I have the flap right. I am not sure. Supposedly lesbian pop singer Melissa Etheridge didn’t know Rick Warren, believed the rhetoric the gays were saying, and went on a rant about him. She met with him, talked to him, understood him, and now they are buds.
What does the readership know about all this? This story seems to be carrying the week. I know absolutely nothing about Rick Warren. Good guy or bad guy and why?
