Graciousness vs. Lack of Class-Prayers of Rick Warren and Jospeh Lowery

Pastor Rick Warren and Pastor Joseph Lowery offered very different prayers at the Obama inauguration earlier this week.

Their prayers could not have been different.

Castigated by the liberal media as a bigot and homophobe, Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California offered a gracious God-centered prayer, invoking blessings upon Obama and his new administration. See the entire prayer here.

On the other hand, the Reverend Joseph Lowery, champion of Civil Rights fame, hit a foul ball. At the end of his prayer, Lowery could not resist playing the race card with a little poem- "we ask you to help us work for the day when black will not be asked to get in the back, when brown can stick around, when yellow becomes mellow, when the red man can get ahead man, and when white will embrace what is right."

Awful and without class. Read the entire prayer here.

The first mixed race American has become the 44th president of the United States. Our prayers for him should be ones of unity not separation into race classes.
