Rick Warren endorses Prop. 8
Fred Jackson - OneNewsNow - 10/24/2008 7:40:00 AM

Pastor Rick Warren is endorsing the effort to protect traditional marriage in California.





The well-known Christian author says people in California need to vote "yes" on Proposition 8 because for "5,000 years, every culture and every religion...not just Christianity...has defined marriage as a contract between men and women."


And Warren says "there is no need to change the universal, historical defintion of marriage to appease two percent of our population." As Warren puts it: "This is not a political issue -- it is a moral issue that God has spoken clearly about."


He urges people to vote "yes" on Proposition 8 on November 4 to preserve the biblical definition of marriage.



Story concludes below ...



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What impact do you think Rick Warren's endorsement

of Prop. 8 will have on Nov. 4th? Vote in our poll




Passage of Prop. 8 would amend the state constitution to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, negating a California Supreme Court decision in May that legalized same-sex "marriage" in the Golden State. Recent polls indicate California voters are closely divided on the question of homosexual marriage.



Bigot?
Uninformed, unenlightened clergy man?



You tell me.

The biblical definition of marriage has no place on the books in the United States, he is a bigot and certainly doesn't stand for enlightenment principles. Both parties should be ashamed for their parasitism with this man.

And most at one point defined it as one man and several women... I guess Rick forgot that.

He should stick to writing books, I just hope his books don't involve a lot of fact checking.

The well known Christian author should write about Christian things and stay out the secular legal system.

I'm with A_W on this - I have no idea why they pander to him either.

Only 2% ? Oh well, then equal rights aren't important, as long as a majority has more rights......

This wouldn't be the first time he's wrong on something, hell half the Christian world thinks he's not even a christian ! He's a super super nice guy in person, his wife is a complete OC-b

Warren's church isn't exactly embracing of the mormon faith, they sugar coat it but Southern Baptists dont exactly fele the love for Mormons, still, they WILL help you "learn" about them !

Saddleback Church - I Have a Friend Who Is...Mormon

as i've said before, the Mormons are aching for the approval of the religious right, that's why they've funded more than half of the "Yes on Prop 8" campaign.

they're picking on the gay kid with the hopes that the class bully will like them better.

Romney in 2012, y'all!
