A group called Californians Against the Hate are focusing a lot of their energies right now on Orange County pastor Rick Warren, who will be giving the invocation at Tuesday's Presidential inauguration, to the dismay of many who oppose Prop 8.

As part of their "Dump Rick Warren" campaign, last month the group put an open letter to President-elect Obama online urging him to rescind his offer to Warren to speak, saying that if he did so, "it will send a loud and clear message to America and the world that you do not tolerate discrimination and hatred from anyone."

Since Obama has opted not to heed to the public pressure to drop Warren, the campaign has now come up with this fake money, picturing Warren on a $3 bill. (h/t OC Register's Total Buzz)
