Priorities, Schmiorities: The Wrong Outrage on Pastor Rick Warren, Syria’s Best Bud

By Debbie Schlussel
By now you probably know how gays and assorted other left-wingers are outraged–outraged!–that Barack Hussein Obama’s “gone rogue” on them and invited pro-life, anti-gay-marriage, New Age Pastor Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church.
And, of course, the liberal mainstream media is following suit.
But, as I noted back in the fall when John McCain and Obama debated at Warren’s Church, the real outrage against Rick Warren is his enabling of the patron-saint-state of terrorism, Syria.
Warren gleefully visited Syria with his wife and paid homage to the Bashar Assads. And he had the gall to praise Syria as a “moderate” country. He had nothing negative to say in the least about this family that has wreaked havoc on Lebanon, worked in concert with Hezbollah and Iran, used his state as a shelter for every Islamic terrorist group imaginable, Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner, Jamil Al-Gashey (the only surviving Munich terrorist), etc.


The Company He Keeps:

Fetid Rick Warren Feted Syrian Terrorist Tyrant Bashar Assad, Praised Him as “Moderate”

Not a word from Rick Warren about the extreme repression of human rights, to the point that anti-Syrian journalist Salim Al-Lawzi disappeared in Lebanon and was never heard from again, after he visited from England. The lovely Assad family sent his hands in a box to his family members in the West. Then, he was found mutilated and tortured to death–all courtesy of the Assads.
Ignoring all this in the name of a nebulous, damaging “outreach” is emblematic of Obama’s worldview, and is far more important than Warren’s views on gay marriage and abortion (I happen to agree with his views on those, but he’s done nothing to stop either, other than mere lip service).
But you know our priorities: Who cares if someone supports terrorists bent on Jews’ and Christians’ destruction and elimination? Who cares if they help the enemies of the West and cut off people’s hands decapitate the heads of those who write things they don’t like? Who cares about homicide bombings of 300 U.S. Marines and civilians?
But oppose gay marriage and abortion? Now, we’re talking.
I have news for these lefties. Their children and grandchildren might not be around to enjoy the establishment gay marriage and the continuation of abortion, if they continue to focus on the wrong priorities.
The ultimate civil right is life. And when we honor clerics like Warren who continue to prop up those who wantonly take it away, we endorse their mass murders.
It’s simply an outrage that Rick Warren will be anywhere near the inauguration of any American President . . . even Barack Hussein Obama.

I was disppointed with this when I saw it, too. But only because I hate as evangelical Christian seeing Rick Warren hoisted up as our representative. The guy’s a total sellout. The fact he’ll be involved with this says a lot about him and where he really stands. His goal is to be the next Billy Graham, who, sadly, was quite a sellout, himself.

Oh it will be a great inauguration watching whack job HOMOSEXUAL activists protest KING HUSSEIN COBRAMA? It would be GOLD if a showdown of NATION OF ISLAM/BLACK PANTHERS confront HOMOSEXUAL activists.

Looking at the pic, I am struck by the Revvvvvvvvvverund Warren’s VERY ample waistline. I am reminded that he works for no salary (living off the royalties of his books, etc). Maybe they still believe in “pounding the preacher” at his church? By the way, this guy is really into the globalist scene, speaking at Davos, Switzerland, etc, and a member of the very non-Christian, non-biblically-based CFR. He is about as solid an evangelical as Jimmy Carter… well, maybe not quite THAT bad….. YET, anyway (but working on it).

As one who was raised very consservative dutch reformed and had a great grandmother who was part jew it troubles me that these windbags like Pastor Warren, Osteen, et al are passed by the driveby media as representing conservative christians. Any pastor who thinks Syria is moderate has a very flawed world view.
My home church had missionaries in places like Nigeria and Kenya and I’m sure they would like to explain to Pastor Warren how moderate the muslims in those countries are.
I feel Pastor Warren is closer to “feel good” theology than true reformed puritan based faith. Having watched clips of him on youtube I feel I’m watching a psuedo Tony Robbins religious self help seminar.
I was always taught you would be judged by the company you keep and how you act. If the progressives are upset over Pastor Warren giving a prayer I feel the only thing that would make the left happy would be to have Jerimiah G-damn Wright give a tirade laced prayer.

Pastor Warren is one of those “goodie goodie” charismic, “lets reach out to everyone” preachers who will not understand the problem until his head is mounted on an islamic pole. He seems not to understand that “Shepards” of the Lords flock must not only tend their flock but also drive away any predators, i.e.,cyotes and wolves…not go to bed with them.

I wondered if I was the only one that saw something I didn’t like about this guy. Glad to find out it isn’t just me.
