When the tolerant are intolerant…

There has been so much talk of religious intolerance by ultra-left-wing-liberals who espouse that Christians are intolerant. But, sadly, many of these folks just don’t practice what they preach.

Yesterday, perhaps the single greatest symbol of change and tolerance in the United States — Barack Obama — did an amazing thing. He valiantly symbolized the call for “tolerance” in a truly wonderful way, making me even more proud of my Obama vote.

He asked Pastor Rick Warren to do the invocation at his inauguration.

This is the same Rick Warren, author of “The Purpose Driven Life” and founder of Saddleback Church in conservative Orange County, CA… the same Rick Warren who hosted the Obama-McCain religious discussion in August, which put Obama on “hostile ground”… the same Rick Warren who aggressively opposes same sex marriage and abortion rights as a good Christian conservative should.

And, the bastions of tolerance — the Liberals’ — response?

People for the American Way says: “It is a grave disappointment to learn that pastor Rick Warren will give the invocation at the inauguration of Barack Obama.”

A commenter at swamppolitics.com says: “Rick Warren? Are you freaking kidding me?

Why in the name of, well … God, would Obama choose someone whose outspoken beliefs are substantively no different from the James Dobson’s of the world? There’s a thriving progressive religious community in every faith, and many believe the religious left is ascendant.”

I could find a plethora of examples of the “tolerant” being intolerant.

The next time I hear about conservative Christian hypocrisy from an ultra-left liberal, I am going to give a very loud, very belly-based laugh (and, be assured, I have a nice big belly working).

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.

God is cool like that.
