Rick Warren 1

Yesterday, I listened to an interview with Rick Warren on one of my favorite radio shows. Rick Warren’s name rang a bell or two, but I didn’t remember at the time that he is the author of The Purpose Drive Life.

(Now, Rick Warren may not necessarily be my cup of tea, but I give him credit for walking the same walk that he talks.)

Soooo, I whipped out my trusty cell phone, fired up Opera, and googled him. I found a Wikipedia article:

Today, the article starts out like this:

Richard D. “Rick” Warren (born January 28, 1954) is the founding and senior pastor of Saddleback Church in Southern California, the largest Christian church in California. He is also the best-selling author of many Christian books, including The Purpose Driven Life, and an influential evangelical leader.

Yesterday, it started out something like this:

Rick Warren is a famous American heretic blah blah blah.

Being on my cell phone, I wasn’t able to do a screen capture. By the time I got home from church, the Wikipedia gremlins had already edited the slurs out of the story.

Where am I going with this?

Actually, I’m not really sure, except that I wish had had the chance to get the screenshots of the adulterated page.

And, oh, yeah, what does it say about someone whose only recourse to support his position is to place a lying entry on a webiste?

Then, again, whoever it was was only following the example set by the Current Federal Administration, which has raised lying to a fine political art.

    I can’t imagine why Rick Warren wouldn’t be anyone’s cup of tea. I’ve never met anyone who was able to read his book in the 40 days he suggests – most can’t put it down and finish it in 2-3 days. He’s a great example for mankind.
