What a Purpose Driven Tool

Our esteemed friend David Markland up at the LA Metroblog was so kind as to create this video of Saddleback ass-hat Pastor Rick Warren making, well, and ass out of himself.


Essentially, the man has no credibility – and his goatee is just so delicious! Yummy (with a spoon)! In case you think David took the comments out of context here’s a link to the unedited Larry King segment and a link to Warren’s original statement on his site.

Dear Saddleback members: It’s time to put a muzzle on your mouthpiece. It’s YOUR church and YOU have the power to shut him up… or fire him… or boycott his church and all it’s related services. So many of his church members (ahem, that includes you Dave Share) tell me they don’t support his stance on this. If that’s true then I think it’s time to send him a message of love and tolerance by finding a new church. I know people disagree with me on some of my ideas about organized religion and the like. I am not saying don’t go to church, I am just saying put your money where your mouth is and go to a different one.

    Uh… Sorry Dave (Share). I just reread my post and I dind’t mean to call you out in a negative way. Please accept my apologies – my feeble attempts at starting a discussion came out all wrong.

    No worries Jon. I know you still love me.

    I’m so torn. I love the church service I attend, and the pastor….well…..he’s amazing. It’s just so unfortunate they’re affiliated with Rick. On a good note I haven’t had to hear him speak in 6 months. I’d be tempted to throw things…….

    (If that ever happens, I’ll be sure to video tape it for you Jon) ;-)

    “…the power to shut him up…”

    Ain’t happening no matter how much you huff, puff and rant. Besides, he’s in good democratic company with President Obama and VP Biden on same sex marriage. Gotta love that.

    Gotta love Miss California too; who you gonna ask to shut her up?

    It’s possible to stifle anyone if you want it badly enough – a little something I learned from Donald Rumsfeld. :) Sometimes I like to let foolish people speak just to amuse myself. Gotta love that.

    Honestly, if his congregation won’t hold him accountable for his lies, I think we must hold his congregation accountable.

    I agree. um… how exactly do we hold the entire congregation accountable? Should we, oh I dunno, ban them from getting married as punishment?

    Just a thought,
