Ok, like i just read something REALLY, REALLY scary on Andrew Sullivan's The Daily Dish about Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Southern California. i have NEVER been a huge fan of Warren and his Purpose Driven Theology.
Wednesday night he appeared on Fox News' Hannity and Colmes where it is revealed he backs the assassination of foreign leaders. This is along the lines of Pat Robertson aka P. Ro. Remember Robertson called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. This is NOT the kind of Christianity i adhere to, and in my opinion, is very dangerous. Talk about a slippery slope. This IS insane and not the kind of interpretation of the Bible i would understand God advocating.
Here is part of their conversation:
Last night, on Fox News, Sean Hannity insisted that United States
needs to "take out" Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Warren said
he agreed. Hannity asked, "Am I advocating something dark, evil or
something righteous?" Warren responded, "Well, actually, the Bible says
that evil cannot be negotiated with. It has to just be stopped.... In
fact, that is the legitimate role of government. The Bible says that
God puts government on earth to punish evildoers. Not good-doers.
Sullivan comments saying,
"Some insist that Warren is a centrist, moderate type. He is, in fact, a very hard-core Christianist integrated firmly into the GOP. As such, he sees government as a divine institution authorized to punish evil and promote good - as fundamentalist Christians view those things."
