Rick Warren: Churches Are ‘Probably’ Responsible for Negative Attitudes Towards Gays
Pastor Rick Warren admitted on CNN on Thursday that Evangelical churches are at least partly responsible for some of the negative attitudes towards gay and lesbian people.
Appearing on Starting Point to promote an updated version of his book, A Purpose Driven Life, Warren reiterated his opposition to recognizing same-sex couples. But asked about the suicide of Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi — who committed suicide after his roommate broadcast a video of him with another man — the pastor said that Jesus teaches Christians not to “hate anybody” and admitted that some churches fall short of this responsibility
The arrogance of these assholes is astounding. Yes, you are the mediator between god and the peasants and YOU get to decide which parts of the bible to follow and which parts to throw out. How do you use this responsibility? Well, you use it to marginalize and repress others who have done nothing to you and have no effect on your life.
