Skip to comments.Gay bishop Gene Robinson to lead prayers at Barack Obama inauguration
Posted on 01/15/2009 1:15:29 AM PST by Cincinna
US President-elect Barack Obama has invited gay bishop Gene Robinson to lead prayers at the opening of celebrations next Sunday leading up to his inauguration next week. The invitation will go some way to placate liberal critics in the US who condemned his invitation to the anti-gay evangelical pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at the inauguration itself.
Bishop Robinson was himself among those who attacked Mr Obama over the choice of Rick Warren, describing it as a "slap in the face".
Bishop Robinson, whose consecration in 2003 was met with worldwide protests from the conservative wing of the Anglican Communion, said: "It will be an enormous honour to offer prayers for the country and the new President, standing on the holy ground where the 'I have a dream speech' was delivered by Dr King, surrounded by the inspiring and reconciling words of Abraham Lincolns Gettysburg Address.
"It is also an indication of the new Presidents commitment to being the President of all the people. I am humbled and overjoyed at this invitation, and it will be my great honour to be there representing The Episcopal Church, the people of New Hampshire, and all of us in the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community."
The Times disclosed last year that Bishop Robinson and Mr Obama had three private meetings during the election campaign where they discussed what it was like to be "first".

A filthy pervert praying to Satan for Osama...how fitting.
...Problem is, Robinson is less an issue for Evangelical conservatives than he is for traditional Episcopalians, many of whom view Robinson as a heretical pariah...
“Bishop Robinson was himself among those who attacked Mr Obama over the choice of Rick Warren, describing it as a “slap in the face”
I guess Bishop Robinson doesn’t know about: “ If someone strikes you , turn to them the other cheek also”
> A filthy pervert praying to Satan for Osama...how fitting.
Not to worry my FRiend. Every word this pervert prays will be a blasphemy and a damnation upon himself and upon everyone who says AMEN. GOD is not fooled and He doesn’t play political games, even if His Excellency Barack Hussain Obama Dada does. These tricks mean nothing to Him: He looks at the heart.
God is not mocked.
He might have a different idea of which cheek to turn.
With a crashing economy, these are Obama’s priorities.
A stupid move.... ticking off the one constituency that would normally be the last to desert him... the Blacks.
If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
A cave to please the pissed liberals?
Newsflash, you will not be able to please both gays and evangelicals. LOL.
I might add that he has ticked off God. Obama has sold out to Satan and if he doesn't repent, his soul will belong to Satan forever. I am troubled about Obama and the way he came on the scene so suddenly without hardly any opposition. I am leaning toward the fact that he just may be Satan's chosen one to help usher in the Antichrist. All signs of this are pointing that way.
Very insightful and true. Thanks for your reply.
We now have religious faggots.
I really hope they have the drag queens and all the filthy perverts marching in the parade. Show them all close up on everyones TV screen. Maybe some of them doing pervert acts would add to the shock of the “in your face” type of immoral trash we will be up against after the 150 million dollar inauguration. Maybe some of those who voted for this guy will feel the real impact of their mistake after seeing something like that.
I wouldn’t want to be standing too close to Mr./Mrs./Ms./It Robinson (whatever they call themselves). I’m thinking lightning bolts, etc.
If I were there I would turn my back and cover my ears when that guy prayed. That is just SICK! GOSH I HATE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amen and amen, DieHard.
Reading that Warren has stated his sympatico with muslims in general and the leaders of Iran and Syria in particular.
There is an unstated reason why the mutt chose Warren.
Wondering now if he is going to use Warren to meet with those murderous scum.
Isn’t that special! Where’s my barf bag!?
Soon after the Clintons took office in 1993 there was a `gay pride’ pervertorama in Washington D.C. that lasted for days and shocked the nation. The MSM sanitized the parades as best they could, but it was “The Unblinking Eye of C-SPAN” which aired all the disgusting footage for all to see, and for which Brian Lamb received death threats.
This was one of a chain of political events which led to the Republican takeover of Congress the following year, IMO.
History repeats itself when arrogance fails to learn from it. Let us hope so.
