Rick Warren’s “Jack Tripper” Problem

Posted in Atheism tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:58 pm by Andrew

If it combines Pastor Rick Warren and “Three’s Company,” you know Fred Clark must be behind it.

Notwithstanding the terrific humor value, I think Clark is dead on here. Just as with his inaugural invocation (to say nothing of the recent controversy over Prop 8), Warren is trying to pretend as though his theology and politics are much more mainstream than they really are.

The (predictable) result seems to be that he’s losing his natural allies among the Way-of-the-Master crowd without gaining any support from liberal evangelicals like Fred Clark (let alone atheists like me).
