Thanks to Charles Castleberry for sending this article. We are definitely in a time when the luke warm are getting spewed out the mouth (Rev 3:16). Please take note as you watch the social shuffling, this is a day when any who are not courageous or are easily manipulated will be drawn to the side of the fence that makes excuses for not supporting God’s commandments. It is sad to see Pastor Warren clearly lie in order to seem compassionate. And how sad is the disservice to others to not stand as a light to the world, a candle on the hill. We can reach out in love to those who struggle with same sex attraction while standingas a quiet but firm standard bearer.
Rick Warren disavows support for Prop. 8
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 told the CNN audience on Monday. “The week before the — the vote, somebody in my church said, ‘Pastor Rick, what — what do you think about this?’ And I sent a note to my own members that said, I actually believe that marriage is — really should be defined, that that definition should be — say between a man and a woman.”
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.
