Obama BFF, Rick Warren Asks for Urgent Donations

Between the recession and perhaps some of the sheeple waking up to the fact that they are being fleeced by a bigoted demagogue it seems that Rick Warren's Saddleback Church is running $900,000 in the red. Personally, I surely will not shed any tears for the disingenuous Warren. I still have not forgiven Obama for having the bloated homophobe give the inaugural invocation last January. One can only hope that more people will come to see Warren for what he is - a modern day Pharisee who lives the good life by suckering others. Here are some highlights from the Washington Post:
Evangelical pastor Rick Warren appealed to parishioners at his Orange County megachurch Wednesday to help fill a $900,000 deficit by the first of the year. Warren made the appeal in a letter posted on the Saddleback Church Web site. It begins "Dear Saddleback Family, THIS IS AN URGENT LETTER."
Warren said the church managed to stay within its budget, but "the bottom dropped out" when Christmas donations dropped. "On the last weekend of 2009, our total offerings were less than half of what we normally receive - leaving us $900,000 in the red for the year," the letter reads. *
Warren was named the top newsmaker of the year by the Religion Newswriters Association. He gained attention with his invocation at the inauguration of President Barack Obama and comments in the aftermath of California's Proposition 8, which overturned gay marriage.
Hmm - could it be that God's not happy with Warren's message of division and intolerance?
