Obama Takes Our Gay Bishop Advice!

Remember that hullabaloo over Barack Obama inviting not-so-gay-friendly Rick Warren to give the invocation at his inauguration? Riptide helpfully stepped in and offered suggestions for less controversial, more gay-friendly religious folks whom Obama should have invited, including Reverend Lovejoy, Reverend Run, Blackface Jesus, and openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson.

Well, la-di-da, look who'll be leading a separate (and not even really equal) prayer service at the inauguration. Gene Robinson!

He'll be leading an invocation at an inaugural event Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial. It's not quite the big shebang, but it's Obama's token little "I'm sorry" gift to the gays. Now if only he could find a way to include Reverend Lovejoy. Yellow, four-fingered Americans deserve representation too!
