“Barack Obama has an ability to be friends with people he disagrees with.”
What an idea!
Conservatives may find it pandering, liberals may be mortally offended, but I like Obama’s choice of Evangelical Pastor Rick Warren
to give the prayer at his inauguration. Perhaps some people are peeved by his choice, but it makes me proud to support our new President. We live in a pluralistic society. We often disagree on major issues, and the President has the job of uniting all
of us. We all have differences of opinion, and sometimes they’re pretty big. I believe we can always find some common ground
, however. While Obama and Warren obviously do not agree on gay rights (nor do I
), how can we really
claim to believe in diversity if we don’t accept those who don’t accept us?
Perhaps liberals can embrace Obama’s efforts, and truly become the party of tolerance:
“And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the [Re]publicans so?“
