America’s culture warriors are not happy with Rick Warren lying about his support of Prop 8, his homophobic remarks and general bigotry against gay people.
Bryan Fischer of Idaho Value Alliance had this to say:
The minimum the Christian church should expect from its spiritual leaders is clear and unapologetic adherence to this biblical standard, especially from pastors who tell us that the Bible is the “rule of faith and practice.”
So if you want to understand why we are losing the culture war, you probably don’t need to look any further than Rick Warren, he of the famously seeker-friendly model of tepid Christianity.
One News Now also wrote about Warren’s lying where Fischer is quoted as saying:
“For Pastor Warren to say that shoring up marriage is not something that’s on his agenda is just something that’s hard to believe for somebody who believes the Bible is our rule for faith and practice,”
Another culture warrior, Bishop Harry Jackson Jr., is quoted as saying that Warren’s lying is “aiding and abetting a deception” and that his public disownment of his own words has done serious damage to their theocratic movement.
Personally, I think Jackson is being a bit dramatic, but I’m enjoying the show all the same.
