Alexandra Pelosi is the daughter of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a filmmaker. She is best known for her documentary “Journeys with George” which showed the lighter side of George W. Bush in 2000. On Monday, February 16th on HBO, she turns her camera on how some conservative voters felt and acted during the recent 2008 Presidential election especially when Barack Obama won. It is her attempt to show there are at least two different countries in the US trying to coexist with each other.

Usually when one causes trouble in the public arena, a good move is to lay low until the dust settles as it usually does. When the selection of Rick Warren to give the invocation at Barack Obama’s inaugural caused a fire storm in the gay and liberal audiences, you would think Warren would try to say as little as possible and let the issue blow itself out. Well guess again. In a 22 minute video log posted on his church’s website, on Sunday, Dr. Warren made the issue out to be the fault of the left and “Christophobes” trying to silence his free speech rights and he tried to deny he ever equated gay marriage with incest and pedophilia.
Boy do I feel like a bit of a schmuck. After praising Barack Obama’s commitment to science and facts in policy decisions, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies announced that Dr. Rick Warren, Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA would give the invocation at the inaugural on January 20th. Warren is not someone a progressive person would invite. Basically, to me, he is a right wing religious tool.
After 8 years of having religious ideology destroying Federal agencies and policies dependent on rational scientific thought and methods, President-elect Barack Obama said exactly what I wanted to hear.
With the 2008 Presidential election being, what does a President Obama mean for secularists, non-believers, and church state separation? Well, based on the campaign it doesn’t seem much will change but then again with a more liberal President who hasn’t worn his religion on his sleeve, there is hope for us.
The mainstream media (MSM) sure have been in a tizzy about Democrat candidate for President Barrack Obama and his relationship with the pastor of his church Rev. Jeremiah Wright. They have said nothing about the GOP candidate John McCain and the endorsement and close relationship with Pastor John Hagee and Rev Rod Parsley.
