Pastor Rick Warren Comes Out Strongly for Prop 8 in California

“Every culture for 5,000 years and every religion for 5,000 years has said the definition of marriage is between one man and a woman”

rick_warren_prop_8.jpgCheck out Pastor Rick Warren’s video statement in support of the proposed California Prop 8 amendment to preserve the age-old definition of marriage: I have something to say about the media coverage of homosexual “marriage” issue during the presidential campaign — and the key distinctions between the candidates’ positions that were not clarified for the public — but I have to wait until after the election to say it (due to IRS rules for non-profits). Until then, thanks to Pastor Warren for defending truth on this vital issue. — Peter LaBarbera,

Tony Perkins of Family Research Council Action writes (emphasis added):

With one week to shore up support for Proposition 8, our friends in California got a much-needed boost from best-selling author and pastor Rick Warren. Nationally known for his book The Purpose Driven Life, the popular founder of Saddleback Church announced his unequivocal support for traditional marriage in a video message to supporters. In it he says, “We support Proposition 8. And if you believe what the Bible says about marriage, you need to support Proposition 8. …[T]he universal, historic definition of marriage [is] one man and one woman, for life. And every culture for 5,000 years and every religion for 5,000 years has said the definition of marriage is between one man and a woman. …This is not even just a Christian issue, it is a humanitarian and human issue, that God created marriage for the purpose of family, love and procreation. I urge you to support Proposition 8 and to pass that on.”

Not to be outdone, same-sex “marriage” advocates celebrated their new alliance with Silicon Valley last week. Technology heavyweights Apple and Google are among the many hopping on the corporate bandwagon to defeat the marriage amendment. Living up to its rainbow logo, Apple joined jean giant Levi Strauss, which already donated $25,000 to the opposition. Mac and iPod lovers will be disappointed to learn that Apple actually quadrupled Levi’s gift with a $100,000 check to the “No on Prop 8” campaign last Friday. In the final stretch, every dollar matters. Please log on to to view the group’s latest ad warning voters how counterfeit marriage endangers parents’ rights.
