It's a great illustration of America's most prominent churche leader equivocating and backtracking and saying almost nothing coherhent so that he will offend no one.
Let me lay it on the line: This is not the way Yeshua talked or behaved. It is not the example of the one whom Rick Warren claims to emulate and worship. There is nothing prophetic or biblical or courageous or principled about this kind of Christian witness.
OK now exactly what is this all about anyway?
Would you say the same of James Robinson perhaps? Not every preacher or pastor needs to be dogmatic in nationally attacking social issues. Billy Graham also comes to mind.
Now mind you I don't know squat about Rick Warren or his ministry. Really all I've actually seen is him trying to be a peacemaker. And while I personally believe it's a waste of time trying to bridge the gap between this administration and the Christian community thank God someone is at least trying. What of Tony Dungy who got the royal snub from the Obama administration with respect to the faith council but still refused to say a disparaging word about it? Maybe he outta get blasted for not being a strong voice of dissension?
Now that said I was recently reminded of Hitler's so-called Jewish Council and how it was a government appointed organization that was anything but helpful to the Jews. But at this stage while I don't support Obama's faith council and personally would want nothing whatsoever to do with it we are not just yet at a point where a legitimate Christian couldn't be a member and try to influence that group towards a somewhat positive direction.
So I really don't know what this rant is all about. With all the very real problems today within the Christian community I don't think it really serves any positive purpose to blast someone who is apparently just trying to to be a voice of reason.
