I disliked quite a lot about Rick Warren’s prayer at Barack Obama’s inauguration. But he did have one excellent line, that we are united not by race and not by religion, but by our commitment to freedom. To the degree that the religious right — and the religious left — takes that insight seriously, we can all get along fine in the political arena.
This is an historic day, and I am proud to bear witness to it. Long live liberty, long live justice, for all.
