My friend Herky has posted a video about a suggested prayer for the inauguration. Although he’s not saying what his prayer will be, I’m sure you won’t hear it from Rick Warren.

And Bishop Gene Robinson, the vocal gay activist from New Hampshire, has already told us about his prayer:

Robinson doesn’t yet know what he’ll say, but he knows he won’t use a Bible.

“While that is a holy and sacred text to me, it is not for many Americans,” Robinson said. “I will be careful not to be especially Christian in my prayer. This is a prayer for the whole nation.”

I would expect nothing different from Robinson, but every time I hear a “Christian” watering down a prayer so that it won’t offend any people, I wonder why they’re not more concerned about offending Jesus.

Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men,
I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven.
But whoever denies Me before men,
I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.
(Matthew 10:32-33)

So If you want to join me in being politically incorrect, go watch the video, and we can pray together.

    Thanks Jean!

    “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.
    The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
    The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart and saves such as have a contrite spirit.
    Psalm 34:15-18

    I was wondering which “Robinson” you mentioned when you wrote your comment on my post. Now I know!

    I wish that they would literally kick that guy out! What a disgrace and a reproach he is!

    It is disgraceful, Herky, and it grieves me that people see ones such as he as representing my Lord.

    But truly, the church is more guilty for allowing him to keep his position. He is an excellent example of the blind leading the blind.

    And have mercy on some, who are doubting; save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment polluted by the flesh.
    (Jude 1:22-23)

    Great Scripture.

    Thanks for telling it like it is. I’m really disgusted by so many evangelicals that have bought into everything that Rick Warren has said like he’s a prophet. I think Rick Warren is a moderate who is in it for the money and will never say anything to anger anyone — even if he has to contradict the Bible.
