I've tried to decide one way or the other about Obama's selection of Rick Warren for the inaugural invocation, but I just can't. My first reaction is one of aversion, frankly, although I really don't know much about Warren first hand. However, I think Obama is really putting many of us to the test, as well as himself, in his selection of this man for this most important occasion.

Inclusiveness is the operative word here, Obama's word. This doesn't just mean selecting those who think like I do. He knows that he must bring as many Americans as he can into the dialogue. This means the Rick Warrens of our country as well as those like me who are so delighted that Obama will be our next President and who have felt totally disenfranchised for so many years.

As long we continue to focus on our differences,, we continue to reinforce our polarities and this will not take us where we need to go.

Relax. Let it be. We all will never (probably) share the same perspective about life. But we can't let this prevent us from solving our problems. It's a huge challenge but we can do it.

Here's my analogy for that: a party at your home. You might invite a whole lot of people that you don't necessarily agree with, including bigots, racists, homophobes, terrormongers, anti-teminists, just like Rick Warren. Having them at your home mingling with your other guests allows you to be inclusive. But you don't invite those sampe people and give them a position of honor-it's the symbolism. It would be like having, say, a lot of Jewish people at your party and an anti-semite... and putting the man that you know has had plenty to say right next to you at the head of the table. That to me is the difference. Otherwise, I completely agree with you that to be inclusive is a good idea.. but not by sanctioning and honoring a man who, one would think, not only has opinions that differ from your own, but actively works to prevent those he is against from their own civil liberties.
