An open letter to Rick Warren that throws down the gauntlet

Yesterday I ran a couple of video open letters to Rick Warren — from Faith in America‘s Mitchell Gold and Tracey Zoeller, author of “The Pastor’s Daughter.” Today’s open letter is from Rodney Powell, a member of Faith In America’s board of directors and a former student activist in civil…

Phantoms battle it out while the real world burns

Nancy Goldstein has a post at Broadsheet about the Obama campaign’s invitation of Gene Robinson—the Episcopal Church’s first gay bishop—to deliver the invocation that starts the festivities, an obvious attempt to signal that Obama really means it when he said that Rick Warren was invited in some spirit of inclusion,…

Hypocrite: Rick Warren tried to back out of meeting with gay and lesbian families

NOTE FROM PAM: Jeff Lutes, executive director of Soulforce, a national civil rights and social justice organization dedicated to freedom for LGBT people through nonviolent direct action, gave me permission to repost his piece about a personal encounter he had with the disingenuous and smarmy Rick Warren, who is now…

Mike Rogers makes mincemeat out of Warren defender’s argument on Hardball

On Hardball Monday night (hosted tonight by the insufferable Mike Barnicle, who believes all the LGBTs and allies who are mad at Rick Warren live in only five cities), friend of the Blend Mike Rogers of PageOneQ.com and BlogActive took the debate chair against the Rev. Eugene Rivers and shot…

Lowery, Rhue speak out on Warren debacle; Saddleback homophobe to keynote at King Memorial Service

(UPDATE: Rick Warren pulled the anti-gay language from his church’s web site (see the Google cache for the original language). The relevant question is whether the church now suddenly welcomes “unrepentant gays,” and if this is about Warren being embarrassed or Team Obama putting some heat on him – a…

Rick Warren also would like to ditch his wife for a gay sexual utopia

Pam covered this video earlier, but I still have to post on it. Watching this interview with Rick Warren, I have to admit that I’m surprised that he is as popular as he is, because he’s pretty incoherent, even by low wingnut standards. His argument against gay marriage—against gay people,…

The ‘favorite lesbian blogstremist’

I guess we’re all “aberrant-sex activists,” so here’s a little weekend entertainment. Peter LaBarbera and I go way back. I’ve already earned the titles of “vicious anti-Christian lesbian activist” and “nutty lesbian blogger” from the the Illinois-based head of the curiously obsessive Americans for Truth Against Homosexuality, so this is…

Is a Warren uninvite really impossible to contemplate?

Rachel Maddow covered the issue of Rick Warren banning “unrepentant homosexuals” from his church quite well last night. First, the passage from Saddlebacks’ web site: Finally, a word about being judgmental. It’s not judgmental to say that what the Bible calls a sin is a sin, that’s just telling the…

The voice that will erase the sad bigotry of Rick Warren

I want to turn your attention to the man who will make Rick Warren look very, very small at the inauguration — the civil rights giant who will deliver the benediction, the Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery. On February 7, 2006, the pro-equality Lowery bid farewell to Coretta Scott King, another…

Last Final Tomorrow

To keep up with the theme of the day: Rick Warren is not involved with the final in any way. What I don’t get about Obama’s insistence that we must overcome division by legitimizing those who divide us is that there are thousands upon thousands of religious figures who don’t…
