Morning Sweep

The prayers at Obama’s inauguration are being considered as inclusive as possible – not just to the LGBT community, which felt slighted by the Rick Warren pick, but also to “nonbelievers,” different religious denominations, and people of color.

The Daily News reports that LGBT activists are ready to move on past the Rick Warren choice.

There weren’t too many protesters at the inauguration – especially if you disregard the Westboro Baptist Church’s anti-gay rhetoric, which just about anyone in their right mind has the good sense to do.

The L.A. Times urges Obama to “drop the semantics” and come out in full support of marriage euqality.

Some U.S. troops aren’t thrilled about Obama’s pledge to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

The New York Post writes on a lesbian couple that has been chosen through a contest to have their commitment ceremony at the top of the Empire State Building on Valentine’s Day with 13 other (straight) couples.

Grassroots groups in CA are already mobilizing to collect the necessary signatures to put a Prop. 8 repeal on the next ballot.

Re: Warren

There's plenty more of Warren to come.
