The gays ought to just chill out. Is Obama supposed to find a pastor who is pro gay, pro choice, anti Iraq war, pro affirmative action, anti-abstinance education, pro gun control, and pro labor union-in order to ensure he doesn't offend anyone? The fact is, most pastors/priests ARE conservative. Should we now do away with the invocation because of that? Get over it.
