76. Neo theos will NEVER support a candidate who is pro-choice or pro-gay

marriage unless and until they change their their basic religious beliefs.

As far as what you call the big picture, since when giving the honor of the Inaugural Invocation the he only way to dialogue with the hating, condemning religious rightwingnuts? that is one of the highest honors government can bestow on a member of the clergy.

If I choose a member of the clergy to, say, preach at my wedding or my child's baptism, that is about as close as I can come to endorsing what that person preaches today and yesterday, not what I HOPE he or she MAY POSSIBLY preach four years from now. Choosing someone to give the invocation at the most historic inauguration since Washington's is an even stronger endorsement.

Did no one learn anything from the Wright debacle?

No, you can try to build bridges with the far religious right in many other ways, ways that might actually accomplish a meeting of the minds. All this does is honor the hater.
