Obama Picks Gene Robinson to Kick Off Inaugural Weekend

Wonderful. Gene Robinson will give the invocation at the first inaugural event at the Lincoln Memorial.

I find this inappropriate not because of Robinson’s theological and political positions, but because he is such a self-promoting lightweight. He doesn’t have the substance to merit such an honor and position.

But then the same could be said about the incoming president. So maybe it’s not so inappropriate.

Hattip to BabyBlue.

MORE: A quote from Robinson: “"I will be careful not to be especially Christian in my prayer."

This is getting more appropriate by the hour.
