Rick Warren for Invocation

Filed under: church, politics — mete23 @ 5:20 pm

Rick Warren, author of A Purpose Driven Life and pastor of Saddleback Church, will deliver the invocation for the inauguration ceremony on January 20.Warren will also succeed Billy Graham as the nation’s pre-eminent pastor.

Some people are obviously pissed. (ie this) If anything this is a political move  to draw in the evangelicals and appear bipartisan. Whoever is hoping Obama will implement liberal policies will be disappointed. Obama’s presidency will have to have a centrist tone, otherwise the country will split in half if it isn’t already.

There are rumors that when Warren hosted a preliminary debate between Obama and McCain, there were no silent cones. Instead, McCain who went second in the debate/interview, heard all the questions that Warren asked Obama and so he was able to prepare beforehand. I don’t think that was what happened but if anyone has anything, let me know.  Interesting, we will see how this plays out.
