Pastor Rick Warren To CNN: Churches
Are ‘Probably’ Responsible For
Negative Attitudes Towards Gays

Mediaite, by Anjali Sareen

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/29/2012 2:09:06 PM

Appearing on CNN’s Early Start Thursday morning, Pastor Rick Warren told host John Berman that churches are “probably” responsible for some of the negative attitudes towards gays in America. Warren was on CNN to promote the latest version of his book, “A Purpose Driven Life,” a devotional Christian book. Warren took the opportunity to again underscore his opposition to same-sex couples, after appearing on Piers Morgan Tonight Tuesday and comparing being gay to taking arsenic and punching someone in the nose. Berman then asked Warren about the suicide of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi.

Comments:
Oh puhleeze. Rick Warren and Joel Osteen are in the same category. They´re pseudo ministers.

Yes, in the same way silverware is responsible for people being fat.

Overexposure to gays was responsible for my negative attitude. At age 30 I liked all my gay acquaintances. By age 40 I was bored because I had grown up and they were still mostly obsessed with pop culture. By age 50 I could only tolerate their narcissism in brief encounters.

No, not really. Militant, In-You-Face activist Gays are responsible for people having negative attitudes toward gays.

As an adult, I am not a church goer. As a child, my parents took me to church/ I have never heard homosexuality discussed in any church setting.

I never had a negative attitude about gays in my youth simply because I actually didn´t believe they existed. First, I couldn´t fathom why someone would be gay. Moreover, they laid low and I never saw evidence of them in person or in the media. The only overt sexuality I observed growing up was on daytime soaps I would perchance see amorous embraces as I flipped the channel.

Then at some point, the gays started shoving their perverted behavior in my face, mostly in the media, but some in person. I formed my own negative attitude from their over-the-top, in-our-face, completely-un-called-for flaunting of their "differences".

Add to that the fact they are all associated with the dimocrat party, and I have enough reason to have a negative attitude without ever setting foot in a church.

A condemnation of the behavior has been an historical reality for more than 6,000 years. The people themselves may be loveable in and of themselves, but the behavior is not.

My negative attitude toward homosexuality (not people who suffer from this malady) stems from the same sentiment that makes me have a negative attitude toward birth deformities, disease, or anything else that is negative. My attitude toward negative things is negative.

I agree with several of the above posters: I´ve been a church-going Christian for well over 40 years. I´ve never heard homosexuality discussed in church, nor in private fellowship.

On the other hand, it does get negative mention in the Bible. Perhaps the homosexual activists should blame God...

Well, up until certain "churches" at whose head is a female, went pro-sodomy, sodomy, and its practitioners were not elevated de rigueur, but eschewed as not being in the best interests of the tribe.

Today, sodomites are considered by certain "churches" and promoted by sodomite priests and its "leader", as elevated de riguer considering that sodomite reproduction is by recruitment and alas certain "churches" are actively engaged in same both directly and indirectly.

Oddly enough, African churches find sodomy beyond the bounds of the tribe and teach against same and condemn certain American "churches" causing certain American "churches" some degree of discomfort and loss of pew members. But they, like Bow-Boy, don´t care.

Selah.

#9 has it exactly right. Haters don´t hang out in churches. They frankly are a lot more comfortable with anarchists or OWS folk. What generates anger is not that there are homosexuals, its that they insist on tearing debasing Marriage by insisting that it cover them. But even in that case the anger is directed at the activist, not the gay.

Churches did not routinely discuss homosexuality 50 years ago because few people were stupid enough to pretend it wasn´t a perversion. It is also so nasty a subject that it is a blot in the sunday morning sermon to talk about it, like, you need to wash your hands and face after the sermon point about homosexuality. The Bible condemns homosexuality, and practicing homosexuals are explicitly stated to go to hell. That is the root of Christian opposition to homosexuality. Rick Warren is a deluded man.

In the past three decades we have redefined homosexuality 180 degrees. Does that worry anyone? Is it worrisome that we could redefine a sexual deviation to acceptable ( or even as a demand ) from something that was deplored only a short time ago? And celebrate it?

It should shake us to our foundations. Can anyone explain why we shouldn´t expect other deviations to be explained away as "discrimination"? How about lowering the age of sexual consent to twelve years old? Impossible, you say? Why? How about marriage to a mother or a father? How about sex with the recent dead? Ridiculous you say? Why? None are any more ridiculous than the acceptance of the use of the male alimentary canal as a sexual oriface 30 years ago. Think about it.

And virtually anything that has a significant political constituency will be heralded by liberal Democrats. Who knows what sexual perversion will be the Democrat´s next crusade? Just give it time. Animal lovers unite; beastiality may be just around the corner if you can get enough of a political following. Go ahead, just come out of the closet and give Obama and Democrats a shout out.

White House Releases New Obama
Phone Photo in Ukraine Crisis

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS. Weiss Russell (he has changed his name from “Weiss Rasool,” the name under which he was convicted), is currently employed as a financial management analyst in the IRS Deputy Chief Financial Officer’s

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

Cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal´s champion, Debo Adegbile, President Obama´s defeated pick to be assistant attorney general for the civil rights division at the Department of Justice, is not the only radical on President Obama´s wish list.

President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders. The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed.
