-Rick Warren on Current Challenges to Religious Liberty

by Dr. D ~ August 25th, 2012

Pastor Rick Warren at Saddleback Church.

      (Pastor Warren: Wikipedia)

Pastor Rick Warren had planned on hosting a debate between Gov. Romney and President Obama like he had four years ago before the 2008 election. However he has cancelled that forum because of the uncivil turn the election has taken recently.

Instead the Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA will be hosting a conference on the current challenges to religious liberty. Here are some poignant observations from Pastor Warren on the challenges before us:

Government bureaucrats at the federal, state and local levels, Warren said, "are daily trying to limit that freedom, impose restrictions, and stifle expressions of faith on campuses, in hospitals, and in businesses.

There are widespread attempts to redefine the First Amendment to simply mean ‘You are free to believe anything at your place of worship but you are not free to practice your conscience elsewhere.’"

The Constitution doesn’t just guarantee your freedom to worship," Warren added, "it guarantees your freedom from government intervention in your daily living out what you believe."

Also, here are his thoughts on the Obama administration’s HHS contraceptive mandate:

"Obama’s policies clearly show what he values and I have told him that I adamantly disagree with those particular policies."

"The issue here is not about women’s health," Warren said. "There is a greater principle and that is, do you have a right to decide what your faith practices. Now, I don’t have a problem with contraception. I’m a Protestant, I’m an evangelical. But I do support my Catholic brothers and sisters to believe what they want to believe."

Response: Freedom of religion is a major issue in this election but one that the media does not want to cover.

Pastor Warren clearly understands the real issue and has rightly defined it as an attempt to redefine freedom of religion as freedom to only worship as one chooses in a place of worship. Christians must meet this challenge or our nation will be forever changed.             *Top

    […] Pastor Warren had made similar statements about the Obama administration and religious liberty during the election season and even held a conference here in Lake Forest CA on the issue yet no one in the press would really touch it. Also, GOP candidate Romney ignored it since his backers deemed him as vulnerable when addressing religious issues because of his Mormon faith. […]
