Presidential religious: Rick Warren
I'm a little impressed with Rick Warren, he's decided to remain silent, to the press, unitl the inauguration, saying his "prayer will speak for itself." Here's a quick interview with Warren. He's gets it wrong at 2:11, Warren says that the model of marriage that we have is between a man and a woman, and that model is 5,000 years old. Too bad the OT is full of polygamy. Also, the church has only recently been involved in marriages, even in the middle ages, when marriage was still a land agreement between familes; the only time a priest was sought, was as witness. Anyway, Warren does ok here, even though he's "had dinner in gay homes."
