This is an interesting blog….
here he defends Rick Warren and makes some good points…..
“No stranger to getting flamed by church people indignant over his writings and methods, Warren is now getting flamed by some very vocal supporters of President-elect Obama because he (Warren) is pro-life and against gay marriage. Shocker, I know.”
“Here’s the thing: Warren is not saying anything outrageous for a Christian minister. He is simply, as most evangelical Christians do, saying that babies should get to live and that homosexual behavior is sin. That he is getting branded a radical hatemonger for these things should tell us a lot about the culture we live in, which — PAY ATTENTION HERE — doesn’t care if you’re a cool, goatee-sporting, social justice loving, Obama voting Christian. If you simply follow the Bible’s counsel about life and sin, you’re Hitler.” (Source)
It was really interesting to me that Obama mentioned ‘gays’ specifically in his presidential speach.
This is not a gay bashing site….there are plenty of them around, and this is not one of them.
But a Christian minister should stand up for something, namely that the Bible is true…and God does not like sin……..Rick Warren is probably one of the sharpest Christian minds of our generation, and when interviewed, I have not seen him slip up. I dont think he did in this context either….but what he said may very well be offensive.
