Rick Warren is an evangelical who refers to pro-choice women in America as Nazis.
Barack Obama just chose him to deliver a religious invocation at the inauguration of the President of the United States of America.
No, I’m not exaggerating. The following are remarks made by Pastor Rick Warren at his religious inquisition of the presidential candidates on August 16, 2008:
Rick Warren: 40 million abortions since Roe v. Wade. Some people who, people who believe that life begins at conception, would say that’s a Holocaust for many people. At what point is a baby entitled to human rights?
John McCain: At the moment of conception. I have a 25-year pro-life record in the Congress, in the Senate. And as President of the United States, I will be a pro-life president and this presidency will have pro-life policies. That’s my commitment. That’s my commitment to you.
Rick Warren: Ha ha. Okay. We don’t have to go longer on that one. Ha ha.
You heard him. Abortion is a Holocaust. That makes women who have abortions Nazis.
“Ha ha. Okay. We don’t have to go longer on that one. Ha ha.”
Oh, yes we do. If fertilized eggs have human rights from the moment of conception, then there are implications, including making birth control pills and IUDs illegal instruments of murder and turning women’s wombs into zones controlled by the government. That makes Pastor Rick Warren’s vision a fervently radical one.
Barack Obama knows about Pastor Rick Warren calling pro-choice women Nazis. He knows about Rick Warren’s radical vision. Obama was there that night. Obama was even asked the same question. And Rick Warren has repeated the sentiment since.
Barack Obama knows exactly what he’s doing. Barack Obama just chose Rick Warren to speak for him on Inauguration Day.
