….from the beating up he’s gotten from all sides after last week’s double-talk bullshit about having never supported Prop 8. In fact, he’s SO exhausted, he flaked on yesterday’s scheduled appearance on ABC’s This Week.
Instead of explaining contradictory statements over his actions regarding California’s Prop 8 on same-sex marriage, Rick Warren went with Plan B today: He didn’t show up for a planned interview on ABC’s “This Week.” “For those of you tuning in this morning expecting to hear from Pastor Rick Warren, we were, too,” said host George Stephanopoulos at the start of the show. “But the pastor’s representatives canceled moments before the scheduled interview, saying that Mr. Warren is sick from exhaustion.”
The wingnuts are furious with Warren over back-tracking on gay marriage.
“I was extremely troubled by the way he appeared to be so anxious to distance himself from the same-sex issue and to make clear he was not an ‘activist’ and that he’d only addressed the issue in a very minor way,” said the Rev. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, said his denial is “absolutely baffling.” “Whether he supports Proposition 8 now, after the fact, is overshadowed by the bizarre claim that he did not say what the evidence so clearly proves he said.”
