No Christian Prayer from Bishop

Here's a post from Gene Veith about gay "bishop" Eugene Robinson's promise not to give a specifically Christian prayer at an event for the inauguration of Barack Obama.

And here's a post from Mollie Ziegler with further commentary on this subject as it relates to being Lutheran in the civil realm. A couple quotes: "Patriotism may be a virtue but it shouldn’t trump a clear confession of Christ and him crucified." "The deities of civil religion force away distinctives and turn all belief into cliches and platitudes."

You know things are really messed up when Rick Warren is the guy you can most identify with in the story.
