Feminist Law Professors reports that President-elect Obama has invited the Right Reverend Gene Robinson of New Hampshire, the first openly gay person to be ordained a bishop in the Episcopal Church, to deliver the invocation at the inauguration’s opening ceremony at the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday, January 18th. While this does not make up for chosing Rev. Warren, it does show that the President Elect is listening to the GLBT community. The location at the Lincoln Memorial is also quite fitting, I think.
Unfortunately, HBO has exclusive rights to the opening ceremony and we have extra cheap, bare bones cable. So, looks like I’ll be catching this on the internets. . .
