BISHOP GENE ROBINSON GOES ALL OUT
Posted on Tuesday, January 13th, 2009
CONCORD, NH – A gay bishop has been selected to give the first invocation of President-Elect Barack Obama’s inauguration, and he is going to do it loudly and proudly!
New Hampshire Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, a gay rights leader, will be leading a prayer at the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday. Many are speculating that he was chosen after the negative backlash over Rick Warren’s selection for the inauguration invocation.
“It is well known that I don’t care for Rick Warren,” declared Robinson. “He has perpetrated lies about the gay, lesbian and bisexual community under the guise of speaking for God.
“I know God, and I know God’s love, and He wants all of his children to love themselves just as they are. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do!”
In an effort to combat Warren’s anti-gay message, Robinson has arranged for an elaborate invocation. He will read from a bible resting on a rainbow bedazzled podium, while two Chelsea boys in hot pants will tearfully release white doves into the air. When Robinson has finished his prayer, drag queens in Michelle Obama costumes will dance across the stage, waving flags that read, “We did it!”
Robinson has not yet decided if the Gay Men’s Choir of Washington
D.C. will conclude the ceremony with “We Are Family (If the State Recognizes It)” or “Yes We Can (Eventually Get Married)”.
