Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White Houses Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop.
Talking Points Memos Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance:
Bishop Gene Robinson @BishopGRobinson
POTUS "preaches" at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG! #privilege
Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive Center for American Progress.
Obama is disgusting. What a slam.

The Easter Bunny was not available.
Barry’s gay obsession means ONE thing and one thing ONLY.. He’s gay!
I can still remember seeing in a newsreel, in the early 1950s, the stirring testimony of a then head of the American Legion, before a Congressional Committee, to the effect that "the time for apologetic Americanism, is gone forever." I thought the testimony stirring; unfortunately many of our people have never grasped the reality involved.
Exactly. Anything to mar a traditional activity. He’s trapped at certain events like this where he is expected to do something traditional and wholesome.
Of course his very fiber recoils at such notions so he looks for any way to put his progressive mark on it. This is another example.
He hates the very notion of traditional values. To him it’s just another representation of evil white-man’s America, so he just MUST do something to “speak truth to power”.
