Newsweek quotes Rick Warren on Anti-Homosexuality Bill

Newsweek’s Lisa Miller contacted Rick Warren about his view on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, 2009. According to this article, he responded as follows:

But Warren won’t go so far as to condemn the legislation itself. A request for a broader reaction to the proposed Ugandan antihomosexual laws generated this response: “The fundamental dignity of every person, our right to be free, and the freedom to make moral choices are gifts endowed by God, our creator. However, it is not my personal calling as a pastor in America to comment or interfere in the political process of other nations.”

The article also quoted without attribution here the statement the Warrens made to me in October about parting ways with Martin Ssempa, a supporter of the Ugandan bill.

I don’t think聽Rick Warren and Saddleback are the main event in this drama. I believe there are other Christian-related groups聽are much more responsible or at least influentials. More on that this week…聽

PS – Did you know there is a Facebook group dedicated to speaking out? Tomorrow there is a new event, spread the word…
