Protest at Anti-Gay Pastor Rick Warren’s Church

January 18, 2009

11:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Date: Sunday, January 18, 2009
Time: 11:00am - 2:00pm
Saddleback Church
1 Saddleback Parkway
Lake Forest, CA

A message from the organizers of this event:

Evangelical Pastor Rick Warren has been invited by President-Elect Obama to deliver the invocation at the Presidential Inauguration. Rick Warren is one of the most unabashed anti-gay religious leaders in the country. He has compared same-sex couples that wanted to get married to child molesters and polygamists, and he has a congregation of over 20,000 people who listen to his message. He is quoted as saying that “there is no reason to change the universal, historical definition of marriage to appease 2 percent of our population.”

We are going to hold a peaceful protest outside his church the Sunday before he delivers the invocation in D.C. to let him know that we are not some radical, crazy fringe group that is merely looking to be appeased! It is time for us to go stand outside his homophobic bubble and show him the harm that he is causing. Show him that he cannot use religion and the Bible as a weapon. Show him that we are not child molesters or polygamists and that we are not looking to marry our pets. Show him that we are also kind, decent humans who deserve the same treatment in the eyes of the law as every member of his congregation!
