And Here's to You, Bishop Robinson!

Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson will say the prayer at the Lincoln Memorial at one of the first inauguration events. Here is the story in today's Johnson City Press:

Robinson has said he was stung by Warren's selection, but still believes Obama will be the most supportive president ever for gay-rights causes.

"There's no question in my mind that he is the president who understands our issues and comes out of a background knowing what it's like to be discriminated against because of who you are," Robinson said Monday. "I think for the first time in a very long time we'll have a friend in the White House."

And here's to you, Bishop Robinson,

Jesus loves you more than you will know.

God bless you, please Bishop Robinson.

Heaven holds a place for those who pray,

Hey, hey, hey
