Making Christ a minister of condemnation

As is now well-known, President-Elect Barack Obama selected the openly homosexual Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire, Gene Robinson, to pray the invocation at the opening Inaugural event, tomorrow at the Lincoln Memorial. About the decision to select Robinson, John Piper writes,

The gospel, with its forgiveness and deliverance from homosexual practice, offers salvation. Gene Robinson, with his blessing and approval of homosexual practice, offers damnation. And he does it in the name of Christ.

It is as though Obama sought out a church which blessed stealing and adultery, and then chose its most well-known thief and adulterer, and asked him to pray.

Yup. And did you hear how blasphemous and racist that wreched "prayer" was? If that's the form of prayer offered before the world, which glorified man as opposed to God, which never displayed humility, which verbally separated--even discriminated, I believe-- the people by skin color, in prayer, then it would have been far better to have no prayer at all.
