Whoops, There He Goes Again

Methinks the President is a tad homophobic.

It's time now for Obama Inauguration Number 2, and he has chosen another homophobic Evangelical pastor to deliver the benediction.

Thankfully, this time, the pastor of his choice, Louis Giglio, of Atlanta, has reportedly excused himself from this honor.

Some of us are still smarting from the antics of the formerly-evolving Obama.   You know, the mute Obama, prior to his being cornered into vocal support of same-sex marriage by Joe Biden.

You remember, the Obama whose Inauguration Number 1 included his choosing homophobe Rick Warren to be his pastoral representative.

Yes, that Obama.

Then we--that is, all civil rights-loving people--tried to buy in to the public relations excuse that Obama was still "evolving" on his views about homosexuality.

Let me say something about Presidential evolving.

If anyone plans to be President of this country, please do your evolving about freedom and civil rights on your own time, before you make a run to lead us.

And if you are not evolved, don't ask for our money and support.

I don't know about you, but I have stopped evolving about Obama.

His actions are a clear communication.

It is not a coincidence of a madcap de'j- vu that President Obama once again, Inauguration 2, personally invites a

ranting homophobe as his Inauguration pastor.

It is more than a coincidence.

He has made the same choice again to pick a blatant homophobic clergy man to represent him and his presidency.
