Gay Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson will be at the inaugural celebration, as reported here and elsewhere:
The announcement comes after weeks of outcry from the gay community over Obama's choice of evangelical, anti-gay pastor Rick Warren to deliver the inaugural invocation.
Not that I'm taking credit or anything, but I did write this in the Huffington Post on December 18, in a piece on politics and conflict resolution:
I'm sure many other people had the same thought.
It's not clear from the story how much time will elapse between Bishop Robinson's prayer and the inauguration itself. I hope he gets a lot of press attention.
