Why Rick Warren Doesn't Matter

Here's exactly why I didn't give a shit about Rick Warren speaking at the inauguration:

Obama appoints gay man to faith-based initiatives office

Yes, symbols are important and I understand why so many Obama supporters were upset to see a homophobe like Warren speaking on one of our country's most important days. But as a symbol, Warren was not a slap in the face to the LGBT community as much as a hand out to disgruntled social conservatives who were afraid that an Obama administration was going to take away their guns and their God.

So as much as I was irritated by the symbolism of Warren on the stage that day it's easily balanced by the actions of the Obama administration now that he's in office.
