Pastor Rick Warren: I’m “totally oblivious” to gay marriage

The Idaho Values Alliance has an important article regarding Pastor Rick Warren and his disappointing apology on Larry King Live for his previous support of California’s Prop. 8 Marriage Protection Amendment.

“I wrote to all my gay friends and leaders that I knew and apologized to them and that never got out,” said Warren.

As Jews and Christians approach the Passover and Easter holidays, we should be mindful of the underlying Judeo-Christian heritage that provided the basis for our nation’s Founders and the brilliant documents they crafted to shape America.

In this increasingly hedonistic society Breitbart News reports that more than 100,000 Britons have recently downloaded “certificates of de-baptism” from the Internet to renounce their Christian faith, as have well over 60,000 Italians filing with the Union of Rationalists and Agnostics. And, the Spanish High Court has ruled in favor of a man wanting his baptism erased from public records.

Just last week President Barack Hussein Obama bowed before the Muslim ruler of Saudi Arabia and unequivocally stated, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation,” when addressing a Muslim audience in Turkey.

In the Passover-Easter week edition of Newsweek magazine the term post-Christian popped up more than once in its cover story, The end of a Christian America.

    When this is what we get from a well-known Christian pastor, is it any wonder we are losing the culture war?

  2. Hometown Guy says:

    We have a president who was raised Muslim and considers the Saudi King to be a revered religious leader.

    The Saudi monarch didn’t bow to him, and Obama correctly didn’t bow to the Queen of England. Americans don’t bow to heads of other nations or even bend a knee to our own.

    Thoroughly disgusting!!

  3. Sally Forth says:

    When this equivocation on fundamental issues emanates from religious leadership we have to depend on ourselves rather than any religious institution to define scripture. It appears that moral authority has taken a back seat to political correctness and not being seen as offensive to the homosexual community.

    Rick Warren purports to be a Christian minister who should be more than familiar with the word of God as it appears in the Bible. Regardless of the political correctness that seems to carry the day in this country, he should be anything BUT “totally oblivious” to this issue. He should forthrightly condemn same sex marriage rather than slither around the subject and apologize for doing the right thing. I find this equivocation to be reprehensible. For shame, Mr. Warren. (I won’t refer to you as “Pastor” when you don’t conduct yourself as one.)

    Notice the use of highlighting on Warren’s top locks? This is the trick used by network broadcasters to keep their dark hair from appearing as a heavy clump. Warren is a self-promoter who showboats as a faith-based minister when it’s becoming evident that he and the Bible are not actually on “speaking terms.”

    He ought to ditch the genitalia resembling facial hair.
