I have no doubt that this story will be all over the atheist blogosphere for the next couple days, and there have already been several posts about it. For those tempted to sweep this one under the rug, excuse it, or conclude that it is not worth a touch of outrage, I'd like to remind you of the following:
- Warren supported the ban on gay marriage in California.
- Warren opposes reproductive rights.
- Warren is clearly outside mainstream America and has been compared, fairly I believe, to James Dobson. Hell, he's compared himself to Dobson!
I agree with The Atheist Experience that the selection of Warren speaks volumes about Obama. He has made his decision, and while we won't change his mind on this one, Pam's House Blend is right that we can still let him know how we feel about his decision. We are going to need to keep on eye on Obama and not be blinded by our desire for hope.
