What's For Dinner

"We feel a deep level of disrespect when one of the architects and promoters of an anti-gay agenda is given the prominence and the pulpit of your historic nomination," stated a letter from The Human Rights Campaign to President-Elect Barack Obama. "By inviting Rick Warren to your inauguration, you have tarnished the view that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans have a place at your table," the letter continued. A month ago it was Proposition 8. Two weeks ago ‘Gay was the new black.’ Last week was ‘Call in Gay Day.’ This week it’s that low-life, good-for-nothing, gay-bashing son-of-a-bitch Rick Warren. 
Yes, you have a place at the Obama table but there are others who are also coming to dinner. You are not the only guests. There are people who are homeless, broke, destitute, dying, addicted, uneducated, old, orphaned, diseased, beaten, trodden-down, hungry, depressed, widowed and frightened. There are also a very few who have put their lives and resources on the line to help the least of these – especially the homeless and those suffering with HIV/AIDS; people like Rick Warren. It will be a grand feast but if you continue whining like this you will have to sit at the children’s table.
