Video: Pastor Rick Warren Condemns Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill


Pastor Rick Warren, distancing himself from any association with the Uganda "kill the gays" bill, released a video message to pastors in Uganda urging them to treat all with respect.

Says Warren: "The potential law before your parliament is unjust, it's extreme, and it's un-Christian towards homosexuals."

Late last month, Warren was asked about the proposed law on Meet the Press and refused to condemn it, saying that he "doesn't take sides." Interesting to see, now that pressure has built around the issue, that Warren is doing everything he can to disassociate himself.

Warren's work in Africa, his ties to anti-gay Anglican religious figures, and his tacit endorsement of condom-burning and anti-gay 'witch hunts' in Uganda, have been well-documented in a thorough article by Max Blumenthal at The Daily Beast,

  1. "It is not my personal calling as a pastor in America to comment or interfere in the political process of other nations." - Rick Warren when asked to speak out against Uganda's kill-the-gays legislation.

    And now he's trying to put out a fire that he helped start. Gee, thanks Rick.

  2. Funny if he's going to speak of 'morality' why has he not said a word about the man whore Tiger?

    This pig is the one who Obama invited to his first public event.

    Bend over folks, 'All sex outside of marriage', that means no fags invited. Will Obama say a word about this? DADT.

  3. The truth is Rick Warren is only speaking out now, because the Media has picked up on it, namely Rachael Maddow, not because of some moral Christian duty as Rick Warren would claim, he is getting bad publicity, and bad publicity could mean less money for this pulpit pimp, and in the end thats all he cares about.

  4. "Pulpit Pimp" is a perfect term for this creep and his ilk.

  5. Yes, three cheers for Rachel, and everyone else who helped publicize his being a partner in this slime.

    A good object lesson to remember when we think we are totally powerless...which, I fear, my New Year's prediction is that we'll need a lot of to comfort us in 2010.

  7. Tax the church!
    Tax the church!
    Tax the megachurch!
    Tax the megachurch!
    This man and his corrupt/bankrupt soul need to disappear from public discourse. If he is the future of 'christian' youth then him and Sara Palin need to collaborate with their lies and deception so it isn't so obvious what fucktards they really are and what little brain matter exists behind their ugly faces and their even uglier political agenda. Hopefully a video of Rick W sucking McJerkins cock with Carrie Precum watching will surface sooner than later. :)

  8. Better late than never, but this cat is as smarmy as all get-out. He is about making money, not about integrity or morality.

  9. The only reason this fucker is finally speaking out is that he was called out by the Washington Post earlier today. I just looked and it has been scrubbed. It was a discussion by their religion person who called him out for not coming forward. I guess the heat in the kitchen got a lil to hot for Ricky boy to stuff his face at the troth of bigotry and hate.

  10. This guy is a penny ante con artist. If not for Obama he'd be fleecing widows out of theri savings and we'd never have heard of him. Let's hope his 15 minutes is nearly over.

  11. "Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst." Thomas Paine - Revolutionist -England, the United States, France

    The Ugandan haters and their American handlers were preparing for a dominationist reign of mass murder, a final solution, a LGBT genocide, gender cleansing or whatever you want to call it.

    What stopped them, at least Warren, was the fear of being called an accomplice to mass murder. He, and all cult leaders who attack us are exactly that but are terrified of being recognized as accomplices to murder.

    That's why every time the murder of a GLBT person makes the headlines they all immediately deny complicity. Even the Ugandan haters backed down and eliminated the death penalty. They'll save money and just 'disappear' our brothers and sisters.

    The truth is that their bigotry, echoed by politicians like McCain and Obama, are the principal reason that harassment, violence and the murder of LGBT folks takes place.

    The central leaders of the American Revolution were adamantly opposed to cult interference in the affairs of the Republic but greatly underestimated the greed of the cults. We have to go one step further. We have to criminalize cult interference in civil and political affairs and fight to take away their tax breaks and secularize their educational and medical properties. And it goes without saying that they should not be compensated.

    Their other properties should be seized without compensation to compensate rape and abuse victims.

    We should demand that Obama immediately denounce Warrens murderous and illegal interference in the affairs of the long suffering sovereign people of Uganda. We should also demand that Obama fire all the antiSSM bigots in his Administration beginning with Hillary Clinton and Josh Dubois, and everyone connected with his administrations disgusting legal defense of DOMA and DADT. He should also fire bigots in the leadership of the Democrat Party like Leah Daughtry and Tim Kaine of the DNC.

    If he won't we should call for his impeachment.

  12. Thanks, Ricky, but you're still a putz.

  13. I'm glad Warren defended himself here, and that he was also gracious enough to not slander back the newswoman who slandered him. :-)
