On the off chance you're NOT in church at 11:35 Eastern time this morning (yes, that's like 20 minutes from now!) then tune into FOX News Sunday and you should be able to hear Bishop Harry Jackson and me having a little chat about life in general and Rick Warren in specific.
(See also: Never a dull moment in the Fields of the Lord!)
1:15 p.m. Quick Update: It ended up being about a three minute segment ... Bishop Jackson led off by talking about how this showed how intolerant gays were of anyone who disagreed with them. I tried to counter by saying I applauded the selection of an evangelical for the role but Obama could have found one who didn't advocate assasinating the President of Iraq and that I had a problem with someone in the role of "America's pastor" who preaches family values and then practices discrmination against gay and lesbian families.
Will try to get a transcript up ... I did find the moderator "fair and balanced" but Oh My Dear, has my email inbox been filling up! As soon as I did the segment I ran off to do two services and an adult education hour and by the time I got back to my desk found 14 emails and 4 voicemails..
My favorite was some hate mail sent to my ex-husband (who lives in Kentucky) -- he forwarded it to me with the note, "This is the sort of mentality I have to put up with hereabouts. If you have a minute I would appreciate some enlightenment to send her way."
I sent him some talking points.
And now I'm closing up shop and going home to finish decking the halls and getting ready for guests this evening.
Happy End of Advent, Everybody! And Merry Almost Christmas!
