One (Really, Really) Cool Thing About Rick Warren


I have serious disagreements with the man, but I respect Rick Warren for living out some values that he shares with me and that he likely shares with many readers of this blog. For example:

He reverse tithes, giving away 90% and keeping 10%.

Of course, when Warren publicly preaches against Prop 8, he’s living out values that he doesn’t share with me. But that little factoid is still pretty awesome. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t do the same if I made what he makes. That’s from the Huffington Post, where you’ll find a progressive defense of Warren.

Update: Man, this ruins the mood. Gays “unwilling to repent” are banned from Warren’s church.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
