Rick Warren: I'D Go To Jail Rather Than Cave to Contraceptive Mandate
Rick Warren, the well-known author of “The Purpose Driven Life” and the founding pastor at Saddleback Church in California, is well-known for his willingness to speak out on social and theological issues. That being said, Warren is typically relatively benign in tone and declarative sentiment when it comes to partisan politics.

But when it comes to the Obama administration’s contraceptive mandate — a regulation that will force many Catholic and religious employers to violate their beliefs, he is making some bold declarations. Earlier this week, Warren took to Twitter, where he made his stance vehemently known.

“I’m not Catholic, but I stand in 100% solidarity with my brothers & sisters to practice their belief against govt pressure,” he wrote in one tweet. “I’d go to jail rather than cave in to a government mandate that violates what God commands us to do,” Warren wrote in another. ...

"Be it further RESOLVED, That we call upon Southern Baptists to work for legislation that will allow the possibility of abortion under such conditions as rape, incest, clear evidence of severe fetal deformity, and carefully ascertained evidence of the likelihood of damage to the emotional, mental, and physical health of the mother."

-SBC 1971 Resolution

"WHEREAS, Resolutions passed by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1971 and 1974 accepted unbiblical premises of the abortion rights movement, forfeiting the opportunity to advocate the protection of defenseless women and children"

-SBC 2003 Resolution

1930: Episcopalians broke rank from all historic Christianity and embraced contraception. SBC has no written prohibition in its teachings.

2012: Some SBC leaders express concern about HHS requiring Church funding of abortifacients including RU-486, Ella and the Pill.

Meanwhile, against decades of political correctness, the Roman Catholic Church maintains constant teachings against contraception, abortion and sterilization labeling them "intrinsically evil."

Why didn't the SBC stand with the RCC on these issues from the outset?

I believe Warren's first tweet statement ("I'm not Catholic but") has nothing to do with the actual convictions and politics of the subject of the government "contraceptive mandate". I believe it is entirely for the purpose of identifying himself (and by extension, all the Evangelicals who follow him) with the Roman Catholics. The point of his statement is that he calls them "my brothers and sisters". This statement is part of the dialectic process he is expert at; part of the program of bringing Evangelicals into unity with the Roman Catholic Church.

His second and third tweets misuse Acts5:29. He is using it to mean, teach or say "anything" in this case, an objection to government policy. But the verse in context is talking about teaching specifically about the Lord Jesus Christ, His shed blood, death and resurrection, all truth about Jesus Christ that is the gospel. This is not what RW has been teaching at all, in his public career as a change agent spokesman for united religions.

Finally, Richard Land. He was on the ADLs *Interfaith Coalition* on Mosques. Also SBC's ERLC is a UN-NGO and must support the UN Millennium Goals, one of which is United Religions. He is part of the CFR as is Warren. Evangelicalism must be brought into line with global goals. love, Loretta

I agree with Thomas. Also, isn't strange that Rick Warren talks this courageous rhetoric after the Catholics announced their position? Mr. Warren can now hide behind their robes and talk and act tough. He has nothing to lose but a lot to gain. Good ploy!

I thought that Rick was past the age of childbearing? We may agree with the Romish church and some issues, but they are not our brothers and sisters--Christian and Catholics -- never together!.

It's now a moot point anyway, since the Obama ministration has reversed its stance on providing me particular services for hospitals etc. that are connected to a religious group that doesn't believe in these practices. The Catholic spokesman I heard was satisfied with the change. The majority of Catholic women, will not be, of course since they practice birth control methods that are disapproved by the Romish church. Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.
