Rick Warren - Letter to the Pastors of Uganda
Let's give Rick Warren credit here.
He is an evangelical US preacher. He has spoke out against the Ugandan bill as strongly as he can.
Unreservedly - Good on Rick Warren!!
Why can't Rowan Williams and Benedict XVI speak out?
Some commentators have been slightly reserved about supporting Warren.
I simply felt a flood of grace. I am usually anti-Protestant but here in the UK we have been discussing whether the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams *should* make a statement because of fear of seeming imperialist.
It is shameful for Catholics that noone has even suggested that Benedict XVI would intervene.
Rick Warren has, I think, single handedly won a victory for both freedom and grace on this subject.
