Rachel Maddow asks whether the Rick Warren choice is The Wrong Choice.
Other problems with Pastor Rick can be found in Katha Pollit's column in the LA Times.
And Bruce Wilson provides more context on who exactly Warren has been promoting. Bruce noted that the Archbishop of Nigeria, Peter Akinola, put in place anti-gay laws that are worst than the Third Reich, yet Warren publicly endorsed this man.
It's too bad Obama didn't look more into the background of this preacher, because many Americans would find his actual philosophy rather outrageous.
That and the fact that Warren doesn't believe in evolution and believes he can convince people that dinosaurs and humans roamed the earth together at one time.
Sure does sound like someone who is going to have a lot to teach us as we head into a world where careful attention to science and facts will be necessary to head off chaos.Posted by Mary at December 26, 2008 12:36 AM | Religion | Technorati links |
