Rick Warren, 'gay' advocate team up to host Obama-McCain
The upcoming joint appearance by Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain at Rick Warren's evangelical Saddleback Church is co-sponsored by a left-leaning group led by a Unitarian-Universalist minister who once headed her denomination's homosexual advocacy office.
Meg Riley is the board president of Faith in Public Life, whose board members include other theological liberals, including a pro-abortion Muslim leader and a Jewish rabbi, reported OneNewsNow.
The group's stated vision hints at its challenge to the influence of the so-called religious right, saying it "envisions a country in which diverse religious voices for justice and the common good consistently impact public policy; and those who use religion as a tool of division and exclusion do not dominate public discourse."...

Thanks for the compliment I hope the links are still good yet, as when you wrote your message. The first link isn't there anymore but the last two still are.
Because I'm not replying to it directly, though, the the NYT article is definitely related to Rick Warren and now President Obama, The article is also up to the minute. Unfortunately the problem of The Faith-Based Initiative and ‚ÄėCharitable Choice‚Äô: Harmful to Religious Liberty and Civil Rights is not only a problem of the Obama Administration (or at least be seen as a problem ) and a problem started under the Baby-face Bush Administration. This excellent article should have been written by a Christian--but wasn't. Oh, McCain is still in the news, is he an agent of Saudi Arabia? He should register as an agent of a foreign government.

I hope these groups who want to go bed with the government don't get the exemption. Why should my money go to Catholic charities? I don't expect their money to go to Protestant ones.
The Bible disagrees with these Unitarians, etc. for it says: "MARK THEM WHICH CAUSE DIVISIONS CONTRARY TO THE DOCTRINE WHICH YOU HAVE LEARNED; AND AVOID THEM." ROMANS 16:17
Who causes divisions? It is these who accuse, as usual..these who blame the fundamentalists of being divisive because they insist on obeying God's Word. The apostates have caused division contrary to the doctrines of the Bible which is the only source of unity that God will accept and in their contrariness blame those who continue to obey God for being divisive.
As Jesus said "The world WILL HATE YOU".
Let's just get used to it... and rejoice as the early apostles did when in the same boat.

Not a problem. Is it possible for Warren to be unequally yoked with unbelievers?
Hosting a presidential forum to discuss issues with Barack Obama and John McCain, neither of whom have a biblical testimony of salvation nor live according to the Bible‚Äôs precepts. WHY? All of this is part of Warren‚Äôs P.E.A.C.E. plan, which aims to overcome the five ‚Äúglobal giants‚ÄĚ of Spiritual Emptiness, Self-serving Leadership, Poverty, Disease, and Ignorance (or Illiteracy). For authority for his interfaith ventures, Warren quotes Matthew 10:11 in the wildly unreliable paraphrase called The Mess-age. Warren says, ‚ÄúWhen you go into a village, you find the man of peace. If he accepts, and he‚Äôs open, and he‚Äôs receptive and he‚Äôs willing to work with you, you start your ministry there.‚ÄĚ In fact, Warren is not obeying Matthew 10 in any sense. Christ did not say to find a ‚Äúman of peace‚ÄĚ but to find one ‚Äúwho is worthy.‚ÄĚ
Warren's confusion is partially based on his wacky use of dozens of 'bibles' which allow him to pick and choose wording that supports his presuppositions.

How do we know you're not a Jesuit plant, pretending to be pro-Obama to draw out anti-Jesuits in order to set them up? You sound way too anti-Jesuit to really be one.
Sodomite supporter and promoter Log Cabin President Patrick Sammon confirmed meeting with Senator McCain in email correspondence with GayPatriot earlier McCain Supports Sodomites Based on published news reports, the meeting with Senator McCain would be the first between any national-level gay Republicans and a Republican Presidental nominee since ‚ÄúThe Texas 12″ met with then-Governor George W.

This "homosexual advocacy office" advocate will find lots in common w/both B.HO. and McCAIN. Don't vote McCAIN brings up some points (last 10 min.of Slattery's message) from
