Obama Uniting Nation: Alienates Orthodox Left

President-elect Obama has selected Rick Warren, the most prominent evangelical preacher of the post-Billy Graham generation, to deliver the invocation at his inauguration. The decision was announced today by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.

Thank you, President Obama. Finally someone is not playing the culture war, and even more significant that it is our elected President.

Already those vested and committed to the culture war are blurting out their disapproval of Obama's selection of Rick Warren. American Way President Kathryn Kolbert -commenting that choosing an abortion and gay marriage opponent is a disappointment, and also Andrew Sullivan -a pro-gay rights blogger, and many others are voicing their discord with Obama.

These haters of Conservative Christianity think Left, Liberal, and Democrat are the banner for their army. They think that when a Democrat finally gains the White House, that Conservative/Suburban Christians are, in a very real sense, thrust out of power.

This war-like attitude on the part of left-leaning special interest groups helps perpetuate the worst abuses on the right side of politics. The Right, whether they be pro-military, Libertarian, anti-abortion, or just plain anti-urban; know they are out of power when a typical Liberal gains power. SO THE RIGHT FIGHT HARDER, AND BUILD UP GRASS ROOT COALITIONS BECAUSE THEY ARE TRULY UNDER-REPRESENTED.

The war culture crime here is under-representation. When an old-style conservative comes to power -its all military, Protestant Christianity, and urban environments/issues are disdained. When an old-style liberal comes to power -lesbians get to go out into the hinterland appointed as socialistic nurses/teachers or city planners; and tell girls to skip church, screw both guys and girls, and get an abortion. My hyperbole is extreme, but in the 60's and 70's, before Conservatives learned how to kick holy ass by co-opting postmodernism and doing it better, the countercultural/Democratic machine pretty much did send their minions out to the backwaters of the nation, showing hillbillies and black sharecroppers the ways of Marx.

Unlike the liberal or countercultural agendas of the past, Obama realizes he is the leader of the whole country, and is offering an olive branch to suburban, typically white, America. Obama is a higher caliber human being, wanting everyone in America to do good, not just one side of America that supports leftist or typically liberal ideology.
