«The two largest faiths on the planet must work together to combat stereotypes and solve global problems». Evangelical megachurch pastor Rick Warren Saturday addressed the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America.
In his speech, Warren urged Muslims and Christians to speak out against stereotyping of any group and to respect each other even while disagreeing. Addressing Muslims who «have been in America for many generations now» he urged them to help «the newcomers learn what it means to be American».
«Some problems are so big you have to team tackle them»
Warren said Muslims and Christians should be partners in working to end what he calls «the five global giants» of war, poverty, corruption, disease and illiteracy.
Warren, founder of Saddleback Community Church in Orange County, Calif., is the author of “The Purpose Driven Life,” which has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. A Southern Baptist, Warren has a record of upsetting fellow Christian conservatives by calling old-guard evangelical activists too partisan and narrowly focused. Ahead of his speech Saturday, bloggers who follow Warren had already denounced his appearance at the convention as cozying up to extremists.
Rick Warren has become toothless, tender and sweet. He urged Muslims to become good Americans. What would Jesus of Nazareth have told this crowed of Muslims?
«Please become good citizens, honor the President and the Constitution?»
Rick Warren do no longer represent the Jewish Messiah, Jesus from Nazareth. Warren has walked astray into worldliness and fame. Surely all who wants to become the friend of this World, will be loved by this World.
If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
