With all the hub bub spinning around Rick Warren and his prayer it appears he is now being hit from another angle.  That from those of other faiths who are concerned he is going to pray in the name of Jesus.

Warren did not answer directly when asked whether he would dedicate his prayer to Jesus. In a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press, Warren would say only that, “I’m a Christian pastor so I will pray the only kind of prayer I know how to pray.”

“Prayers are not to be sermons, speeches, position statements nor political posturing. They are humble, personal appeals to God,” Warren wrote. His spokesman would not elaborate.

emphasis mine

I’m not sure of the exact count but I think that makes 4 angles in which he is being attacked.

1) His stance on Gay marriage has angered gays but not ADM’s

2) His acceptance to pray has angered ADM’s but not Gays; they’re angry at Obama.

3) His stance on reaching out to other faiths has caused ADM’s to question his salvation and if he will use the name of Jesus

4) His stance on being a Christian pastor has caused other faiths to question if he should use the name of Jesus.  No word yet from ADM’s on how they feel.

Fixed by Phil via some druid magic skills relying heavily on occult practices and Christian yoga. Thanks anyway.

Plus,

His apology for offending gays has angered ADM’s because an apology is seen as back-peddling.

Let me make it five:

His obvious compromise with gluttony.

Let’s make it six: He can sell more books in an hour than I can read in a year.

I’m angry too.

Comment 8 would bring it to 7… the perfect number.

It’s just like when Jesus and the apostles would get up every morning saying “I think I’ll offend some pharisees today” or “let’s go turn the world upside down”.

Oh wait, they never did that.

Whorren is doing nothing in the way of proclaiming the gospel, but you’re right;
when Jesus returns Rick can show him all the stubs from his royalty checks,i.e. the new fruit of the spirit.

Too bad Jesus didn’t wear 4X hawaiian shirts. He could have been so much more effective.

I love when you are in “can’t win for losing” hell. Focus on the Family posted Glenn Beck’s “tesimony” and Ingrid was all over it (he is a Mormon). OK, then they remove the post and Ingrid critizes that as well.

Rick Warren is the High Priest of “You can’t win for losing” hell.

Well you know Ingrid has never removed a post before. Oh wait a second…

According to the O/ADM’s, isn’t Rick now the holiest of all people? The world AND church hates him. I mean both Rick’s, Mr Frueh :P

Really and truly have we gotten to the point where we’re making fun of the man’s weight? Hasn’t he lost a lot of weight?

yeah, Template, that’s exactly what’s been claimed by Warren or anyone else who supports him–his shirts make him effective.

are you really that petty and/or stupid?

Hi Guys,

Please join me and my readers as we pray for Rick Warren on January 15th, 2009…..I figured with everyone seemingly against him he could use some prayer right about now, don’t you think?

I guess ya work with what ya got… after all he is the Temple of Disdain.

disdain – to think unworthy of notice, response, etc.; consider beneath oneself:

In other words, to feel superior to, to be haughty toward, to be proud…

synonym – “UnChristlike”

USC
“Fight On”

Fight on for ol’ SC,
Our men fight on to victory.
Our Alma Mater dear
Looks up to you,
Fight on and win
For ol’ SC
Fight on to victory
Fight on!

Phil and Rick should work out a duet.

I believe Notre Dame kicked Hawaii’s butts in their bowl game. When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me. :cool:
