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.
