Rick Warren: "Don't Apologize for Voting for the Sanctity of Marriage"


The Christian Post:

Just two months ahead of the November presidential election, Pastor Rick Warren said Sunday that Christians should gain courage and not apologize for voting in accordance with their worldview.

"You don't need to apologize for voting for a Christian worldview which stands up for the sanctity of life, the sanctity of sex and the sanctity of marriage. You don't need to apologize for that because everybody votes what they believe," Warren told thousands of Saddleback Church attendees at the launch of a new sermon series.

The Southern California pastor said those three issues (life, sex, marriage) are non-negotiables for Christians. While they may disagree on the economy or health care, what believers must be firm on is protecting the unborn, viewing sex as holy, and protecting traditional marriage.

"If you call yourself a Christian, you need to line up with what God says is the original intent of all three of these things," he preached.

    SCOTUS will uphold DOMA and Prop 8. Kennedy's majority opinion will clarify his intent by acknowledging the right of conscience and the free exercise thereof as expressly provided for in the very 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution not only protects our right to vote our conscience, but also guarantees said vote will be counted as equal to every other vote cast on any subject regardless of Religion, Race, or Gender.

    I hope that you are right Rick. By the way what Pastor Warren said is also in the Catholic 2012 vote video on YouTube.
