Rick Warren Freaks Out Christianists

Kos has an interesting post: http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/8/11/13318/0005/268/566219

It turns out that Pastor Rick Warren's upcoming hosting of a joint appearance by McCain and O'Bama at Saddleback Superchurch has inspired a planned counterdemonstration in DC by Christianists who disapprove of Warren's call for Christians to be, well, more Christlike. Warren has been advocating the mobilization of the world's 2.3 billion Christians to fight poverty, work for peace, and minister to the world. This really pisses off the Christianist right leadership who reckon that Christianity should be more about hating than loving.

Seriously, if evangelical Christians actually started acting like Christians instead of actual sheep, there would be almost nobody left for the Christianists to lead. The Christianists seem to be "against" things, whereas Christians are known by what they are "for" and the fruits of their labors. I pray for an awakening among evangelicals that will allow them to cast off the false prophets that lead them astray and to live out the command of Jesus to love God and their fellow human beings.
