A new exposé confirms what many of us have suspected about Rick Warren ever since he came to national prominence after President Obama selected him to deliver the 2008 inaugural invocation: Rick Warren is a dangerous homophobe linked to the murderous Uganda regime, who urged followers to emulate ‘Hitler’s Youth.’
The exposé from Bruce Wilson, who helped Jeff Sharlet shocking expose of The Family, and posted on the website Talk to Action, is a 3,600-word effort that reveals Warren’s senior advisor, C. Peter Wagner, played a “major role” in the Saddleback Church’s ties to Uganda. Here’s an excerpt:
To little notice, a charismatic network overseen by Warren’s doctoral dissertation adviser, C. Peter Wagner, has played a major role in politically organizing and inspiring the Ugandan legislators who have spearheaded the anti-gay bill.
Wagner is the Convening Apostle in a movement of charismatic networks which has extended its reach from the United States to Uganda, and worldwide. Under its umbrella of authority are virulently anti-gay apostles in the United States and Uganda including Lou Engle of TheCall, who led thousands of young people in a twelve hour November 1, 2008 stadium rally in support of California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition Eight.
The San Diego event closed with Engle, a member of Wagner’s inner circle of “prophets,” calling for Christian martyrs. Peter Wagner heads the New Apostolic Reformation, which he openly touts as an effort to take Christian dominion over the globe by putting “born again” believers around the world under the authority of these apostles and prophets.
Both C. Peter Wagner and Rick Warren want to transform the world, and both [1,2] have proclaimed the advent of a second Reformation. Wagner calls it the New Apostolic Reformation, while for Rick Warren this is a “purpose driven” effort powered by Warren’s global P.E.A.C.E. Plan. In Uganda both visions for societal transformation appear to include the categorical elimination of homosexuality – by any means.
Here’s an audio track of Rick Warren speaking to 30,000 Saddleback Church members at Angels’ Stadium in 2005. Warren asked them to be just as passionate and committed to radically changing the world as were the brown shirts Hitler Youth and the followers of Chairman Mao. The Family’s founder Doug Coe made a similar comparison.
