Christian Love

Responding to criticism of his views on gays and gay marriage, Rev. Rick Warren, chosen by President Elect Obama to deliver the invocation at his inauguration, said in an interview that he loves Muslims, people of other religions, Democrats and Republicans and gays and straight people too.

That reminded me of 19th century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, born Jewish but converted to Anglican as a child, who said: "The Jews are a nervous people. Nineteen centuries of Christian love have taken a toll."
