Pastor Rick Warren defends himself from accusations of being homophobic and anti gay:
The problem is, Warren has gone on record with some pretty objectionable remarks, comparing homosexuality to incest, polygamy and paedophilia:
Warren is a decent guy, but he can’t complain about the backlash he is receiving for his views. No matter how much right wing Christians hate being labelled homophobic, hatefull, prejudice etc, they must accept that their views are thoroughly offensive to a great number of people. No one should respect a racist for his views on race, and no one should respect those who view gays as less equal than straight people. It’s straight up prejudice, and needs to be called that way.
