Video: 'Delayed gratification'
So once again, he's comparing our love to multiple-partner love (which he apparently feels is in his DNA). And even if it is proven within 100% certainty that our akin-to-polygmay-incest-and-pedophilia sexual orientations are inborn (something most every actual gay person believes), then he thinks we gays should live an unfulfilled life of sexual frustration wherein we deny our truths in favor of biased religious condemnation. Ya know, because that's "maturity." That's "character."
No, Rick: That's BULLSH*T!
Folks, we deal with every flavor of anti-gay, from the genuinely-lovely-but-unfortunately-misled mother in Denver to the raging Phelps family. Rick Warren, Obama's invited inaugural guest, is on the extreme end of that spectrum! He has, after all, just demonstrated that he wants us, as gay and lesbian people, gone.
**NOTE: It would also be reasonable to assume that since Pastor Warren never wants gays to "act upon" their actualities, he supports the "ex-gay" movement. Someone needs to ask him this.
**UPDATE: Well, we seem to have an answer to the "ex-gay" question.
Um, Rick? That's why gay people want to get married. So they settle down with only one person and not have sex with anything and everything that wanders by. You're denying gay people their right to volunteer for your so-called "maturity". Some people want to sign on for that monogamy trip; why won't you let them?

Ann Curry is such a bitch, media whore. I couldn't believe her sucking up to Bush's daughter when she was on the show with Laura as I recall promoting her book. She never even attempted to pretend interview, just sucking up their vomit swill like the pig she is.

I am sorry but I cannot picture any gay person going up to him and saying 'Rick why can't I have as many sexual partners etc..'
I CAN picture Rick cruising some glory holes in a boothstore on some highway though.

According to Andrew Sullivan this morning, there's an ex-gay group run out of Saddleback.
There was also a dustup there when Soulforce sent a group to Saddleback earlier this year.

Isn't gluttony a sin?

"I'm naturally inclined to have sex with every beautiful woman I see... But that doesn't mean it's the right thing to do."
Why does this moment seem so much like something out of one of those Daily Show interviews where they pretend to seriously interview someone ridiculous? Ann Curry doesn't react too much, but the way her eyebrows go up before he says "But that doesn't mean..." makes me wonder how much she had to hold back.

G-A-Y: You're right, She's (Ann Curry) just representative of MSM, but I found her particularly offensive in the interview, I mentioned, with Jenna Bush. She was just "kow towing" all over the place to them and didn't even to seem to be making a pretense of actually conducting an interview. You're right though she isn't really any more crappy than the rest of MSM, Charlie Gibson, et. al. They just suck up what the power and influence give them and regergetate it for "the public", IMHO.

I haven't seen the full interview but from the clip above, Rick Warren sounds extremely ignorant. Do all gays have sex with multiple partners and then is it worse to have sex with multiple people of the same sex or worse for a straight person to go have sex with many people of the opposite sex? Why is it that people think all gay people just want to have sex with any other person that is the same sex. Just like all straight people want to have sex with everyone of the opposite sex. SEE HOW STUPID THAT SOUNDS? We are not that different than any other straight person. Gay, straight... in the end we are people. Sex is sex and love is love.
