Rick tricks no one

by Jeremy Hooper

rick-warren-larry-kingHA! It seems it's not just the LGBT community that's pissed with Rick Warren for lying to Larry King about his Prop 8 support. The "yes on 8" crowd also knows full well that Pastor Warren was one of their big allies, and they are steaming mad at his new face-saving attempts:

This from One News Now:

Monday night on CNN's Larry King Live, Pastor Rick Warren apologized for his support of Prop. 8, California's voter-approved marriage protection amendment, saying he has "never been and never will be" an "anti-gay or anti-gay marriage activist."

"During the whole Proposition 8 thing, I never once went to a meeting, never once issued a statement, never -- never once even gave an endorsement in the two years Prop. 8 was going," Warren claimed.

However, just two weeks before the November 4 Prop. 8 vote, Pastor Warren issued a clear endorsement of the marriage amendment while speaking to church members. "We support Proposition 8 -- and if you believe what the Bible says about marriage, you need to support Proposition 8," he said.

...
Dr. Jim Garlow, the senior pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church in the San Diego suburb of La Mesa, helped spearhead the Prop. 8 effort in California. Garlow admits he is confused and troubled by Pastor Warren's decision to apologize for supporting Prop. 8.

"Historically when institutions and individuals back away from convictional biblical truth, it is driven primarily by one single factor -- and that is the respectability of other people. In other words, much more caring about what other people think about them than what God thinks about them," he concludes.

Rick Warren disavows support for Prop. 8 [ONN]

Finally! "Yes on 8" and "No on 8" find unity! We both see the disingenuous cake that Rick Warren is baking, but neither of us are going to let him eat it too.

Keep up this double-dealing, Rick, and it won't matter how purpose driven your life. The double-speak will keep your potential riders from understanding why they should hop on board.

Ahh, nothing like seeing people like Warren getting humiliated. Bet he's regretting accepting Obama's invite now.
