Hey, everyone. I just wanted to remind you that our protest at Saddleback Church is this Sunday. We’ll start at 10:00 AM, and everyone will be going directly to the church.
Fortunately, President-Elect Obama has been somewhat responsive to the outcry over Rick Warren giving the opening prayer at his inauguration. Unfortunately, Warren will still be praying (or preying?) to the nation & be given a national platform to spew out H8. And worse yet, Warren has refused to apologize for his false slanders against LGBT people & he still considers granting full civil rights to LGBT people “immoral”.
What’s really immoral, however, is the suffering that gay & lesbian couples have had to endure since the passage of Prop H8. And despite Rick Warren claiming to be “nonpartisan”, he played an active role in causing this suffering by promoting H8. If he really shared President-Elect Obama’s concern about the painful divisions in this nation, he’d stop dividing the country according to the “sinners” & the “saved”. This is why we’ll be out en masse on Sunday, taking our message of equal rights for all directly to Saddleback parishioners & the larger Foothill Ranch community.
If you’d like to join us, please sign up here. I hope to see you on Sunday!
