A year ago today, Rowan considered invitation of anti-gay preacher Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at the Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama. “It’s only symbolism,” declared some, “noise has been made,” that’s all. When it comes to substance, they said, Barack Obama will deliver.
One year later, has Barack Obama delivered on his campaign promise to end Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?
One year later, has Barack Obama delivered on his campaign promise to repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act?
From one year out, it looks to me like Barack Obama’s choice of Rick Warren was the start of something small.
