Yeah, the actual reality of the situation is that we live in a nation that is like over half KKK (to interchange the racist/heterosexist analogy). Barack Obama has to reach across the aisle so to speak and embrace conservative Christianity which is heterosexist by definition. You have to work with these people to get things done. Barack ran on that promise. Rick Warren is the guy that represents that in terms of Christianity and working with him is a good idea especially since Warren (as I read in the paper the other day) is less bigoted than most because he too also is completely willing to work with non-believers and people of different denominations to get things done (despite the opposition he receives from other Christians who hate that). This "problem that won't go away" is actually part of Barack's freaking solution. Rachel needs to rethink her critical approach, because now she is part of the problem despite her other great talking points.As was pointed out in other news vids, Barack has another preacher who supports gay marriage giving the benediction. If this is the kind of crap Obama is going to get every step of the way, that's horrifying.
