REVEREND Rick Warren LIES
I’m used to politicians (of all stripes) to lying to people–including politicians I support. But clergy are a different matter.
Rev. Rick Warren and I disagree about same sex marriage–as well as much else. We have very different theologies and even very different understandings of the way faith and politics should interact. That’s all well and good. But lying about his views is NOT. If he’s changed his mind, that’s one thing. But if he lies about his views, that’s something else–it tarnishes the reputation of Christian clergy–and that doesn’t need any more tarnishing.
On CNN’s Larry King Live, Warren lied. From the transcript, Warren says, “In the first place, I am not an anti-gay or anti-gay marriage activist. I never have been, never will be. ” Warren also says, “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.”
Well, Rick, we have video proving otherwise.
See, Rick, that’s you ENDORSING Proposition 8 IN A VIDEO AD FOR Prop 8. So, you lied.
Repent of your lying ways! And, while you are at it, repent of your homophobia, too.
