I live in mexico so I can not attend.
Someone please speak on the need to separate church and state it is critical that Obama understands this constitutional issue. His denial of the law is causing our community great grief. Have a great Rally!

You are simply bullies with your agenda. Rick Warren has a right to his religious faith and on that marriage is narrowly defined as being between a man and a woman.

In your efforts to deny Warren his right to believe what he’s free to believe in and Obama's right to invite whomever he wants to pray at his inauguration you are hypocrites.

You only care about your rights and you hate honest disent and disagreement.

What is someone got on stage and advocated for the position that women should not be allowed to vote? Would that be dissent and disagreement or a sexist hater?
