Good Question

Kevin McCullough asks: Why is Obama's Evil in Rick Warren's Pulpit? Good question.

Rick Warren is the author of that mega-bestseller The Purpose Driven Life. It has spawned Bible Studies, conferences, countless sermons, etc. Personally, I have never been a fan of it. It puts the Christian on a Do, Do, Do treadmill instead of celebrating the freedom and joy of being a Christian. I'm sure Warren is a good man, though I don't know a lot about him other than from reading his book. His decision to allow Barack Obama to speak from his pulpit, though, certainly shows terrible spiritual judgment. As McCullough points out:

Barack Obama has a long history of defying the intended morality of Scripture. As a state legislator he actively worked to preserve availability of abortion in all nine months of pregnancy. He opposed parental notification. He opposed any and all bans on partial birth abortion (an act that includes delivery of the baby up to the head, the crushing of the baby's brain, the suctioning of the brain matter, and then completed delivery of the child's deflated cranium.) In his run for the U.S. Senate Obama even asked his wife to pen a letter to Illinois voters that reassured them of his commitment to fighting for the right to butcher children in the womb.

Barack Obama has long supported the advance of the radical homosexual activist lobby in their pursuit to destroy traditional marriage. He supported the creation of "special rights" for people who engage in homosexuality for the sole purpose of putting them at the front of the line on issues of employment, housing, and litigation. He has also solidly backed the advancement of all "hate crimes" legislation, which ultimately may be used to silence clergy who believe according to their own convictions that homosexual behavior is wrong and preach so from biblical texts. Barack Obama has a perfect voting record against the defense of marriage.

He's a freakin' far left wacko, for Pete's sake. Warren says he is allowing him to speak because of their mutual concern regarding AIDS in Africa. He couldn't find someone sane to speak?? Just about everything that Obama stands for is contrary to the scriptures, but there he'll be, smiling for the cameras at one of the biggest evangelical churches in the nation.

Geez, what a mixed up world we live in.
