Operation Rescue Decries Rick Warren’s Role at Inaugural

From Slice of Laodicea:

Hats off to Troy Newman of Operation Rescue. Where in the world is the rest of the church? This just came through on Christian Newswire. (For very little, anyone can send out a press release on Christian Newswire. Is your pastor taking a stand on this? If not, you can! Let your voice be heard.)

Washington, DC - Operation Rescue issues the following statement, attributable to Troy Newman, regarding Rick Warren’s role in the upcoming Obama inaugural ceremonies:

Yesterday, Pastor Rick Warren issued a statement attempting to excuse his act of support for Mr. Obama, an ardent supporter of abortion, by saying, “The Bible admonishes us to pray for our leaders.” However, Pastor Warren’s participation in Obama’s Inauguration is tantamount to placing his stamp of approval on Obama and his policies that stand in direct opposition to Biblical truths.

The Bible clearly states in Ephesians 5:11 that as Christians we should have “nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

Barack Obama not only supports the grievous sin of abortion, but has vowed to promote, subsidize, and protect it. The hands that shed innocent blood are among the things God particularly detests. As a minister of the Gospel, it is a betrayal of innocent children and, more importantly, betrayal of the God in whose image they are created to turn a blind eye to the shedding of innocent blood and join hands with those that are responsible for shedding it.

Instead of lending support to a man who clearly stands in opposition to God’s Law on the critical matter of child-killing, we fervently urge Pastor Warren to instead follow the examples of godly men who, throughout the Scriptures, boldly proclaimed God’s truth and exposed the sin of leaders in order to protect the people from that sin.

Editor's note: Could it be Rick Warren is more interested in White House support for his PEACE plan agenda than abortion?
