This is what happens when you try to please two masters, the world and God:
Mr. Warren told CNN’s Larry King on Monday that he “never once even gave an endorsement” of the proposition, which said marriage in the state could only involve one man and one woman.
What Mr. Warren said he did do was send out a video to his 22,000-member church explaining his position the week before Proposition 8 went before state voters on Nov. 4.
“Now let me say this really clearly: We support Proposition 8,” he said on the video, “and if you believe what the Bible says about marriage, you need to support Proposition 8. I never support a candidate, but on moral issues, I come out very clear.”
Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, said his denial is “absolutely baffling.”
“Whether he supports Proposition 8 now, after the fact, is overshadowed by the bizarre claim that he did not say what the evidence so clearly proves he said.”

He sounds a bit more wind-driven than purpose-driven these days.
I have plenty of criticisms of the seeker-sensitive movement and the churches that seem to be i in the”purpose-driven” mold, but I haven’t yet read The Purpose Drive Life, and am going to hold off on any big criticism of him until I read it. I thought it was absolutely wrong for him to pray at Obama’s inauguration, and this article clearly shows him trying to have it both ways on gay marriage. And I don’t know what to do with the blatant lie that he never “endorsed” Prop 8 …
I was at best unimpressed with “the Purpose Driven Life” but I’d be interested to hear what you think. At best…
It’s next on my reading list.
I haven’t read it. Just skimmed some parts. I think it’s an interesting and useful book, although written for a high school level, which means it has lots of fluff. Maybe some day I will read the whole thing.
Believe it or not, I have no problem with him praying at Obama’s inauguration. We are commanded to pray for all governments, whether we support them or not.
His denial of support for prop 8 is definitely baffling.
