out bishop to deliver invocation at Lincoln Memorial

Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson--the first out gay priest ordained by a mainstream denomination--will be delivering an invocation at an inaugural concert on Sunday at the first event attended by Obama. (Its location at the Lincoln Memorial is a nice touch.)

It doesn't make up for the selection of Rick Warren, but it's something...and I don't think there's any doubt that the LGBT outcry over Warren and Prop H8 made this happen.
