Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California (shown above) will speak Tuesday, June 23 at St. Vincent’s Cathedral in Bedford during the first national meeting of a new group called the Anglican Church in North America, The Dallas Morning News reports today.
The Anglican Church in North American is made up of congregations and dioceses (including Fort Worth’s) that have left the U.S. Episcopal Church, primarily over its acceptance of gays. And even though Warren is a Southern Baptist, he’s apparently been selected to mentor the new group on how to become effective bigots.
Warren, of course, was President Barack Obama’s selection to deliver the invocation at January’s inauguration, which in retrospect seems like the first major warning sign that Obama was going to sell the LGBT community down the river.
Bishop Robert Duncan, the leader of the Anglican Church in North American, told The DMN that Warren has “been a great friend to us,” including offering meeting space for a California congregation that left the Episcopal Church.
Warren is scheduled to speak at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow. You can watch live video of the conference by going here.
