Diverse, Noisy, and Opinionated

So much has been made about President-Elect Obama’s choice of Rick Warren as one of those involved in his inauguration. The far left are upset that Obama would have chosen someone who spoke out against gay marriage. The far right are upset that Warren would agree to go since Obama is pro-abortion.

Too often, we forget that our diversity makes us stronger!

Obama defended his choice saying: “During the course of the entire inaugural festivities, there are going to be a wide range of viewpoints that are presented. And that’s how it should be, because that’s what America’s about. That’s part of the magic of this country … we are diverse and noisy and opinionated.”

Are we supposed to limit our time and relationships to only those with whom we completely agree?

Even Paul in the I Corinthians 5:9-10 said: “I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people – not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world.”
