Warren’s Apology Damaging




A Washington, DC, pastor and outspoken opponent of same-sex “marriage” says California mega-church pastor Rick Warren has done “tremendous damage” by apologizing for his support last fall of California’s marriage protection amendment.

Rick Warren said Monday on CNN’s Larry King Live that he has “never been and never will be” an “anti-gay marriage activist,” and made a point to inform the program’s host that he apologized to his homosexual friends for comments he made in October to his church in support of Proposition 8 in California.

Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr., with the High Impact Leadership Coalition says he was very disappointed with Warren’s statements on CNN.

“This man who’s been called the next Billy Graham, who I really respect with all my heart and love what he’s doing in Africa, is falling into a trap that is emblematic of the problem that the entire church is facing in this generation,” Jackson states. “And that is that we love the applause of men more than we love the work of God and the gospel. Jesus…told us that we are to honor God first, and that we are not to fear men but we’re to fear God.”

Bishop JacksonJackson argues that Warren was “aiding and abetting a deception around what kind of stance the Bible calls Christians to take” by telling Larry King that opposing the recent Iowa Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage was “not his agenda.”

“He is the author of The Purpose Driven Life book,” Jackson notes, “and therefore people are going to think, ‘Well, this is not on my mission — it’s not on my purpose. I don’t have to stand for truth.’

“Therefore, his defection — in terms of his stance on this issue — [and] his backsliding on this issue, becomes of tremendous damage to the strength of the church in this position.”
