Obama and Pastor Rick Warren Controversy
President-elect Obama has stirred up a hornets nest with his controversial selection of Saddleback mega-church pastor Rick Warren to give the invocation at his swearing in ceremony next month. Warren was a major supporter of Proposition 8 in California , and the gay and lesbian community, which overwhelmingly voted for Obama, are up in arms over Warren's selection as are Hollywood liberals as Tina Daunt points out.The battle over prop 8 is not over yet, California Attorney General Jerry Brown yesterday urged the California Supreme Court to reject it.I photographed Obama and Warren at the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency in August, 2008.
