40. Absolutely Warren would have raised the $ - Saddleback has been built over many years
Edited on Sun Jan-03-10 08:04 AM by MH1
and when you see more than one person reading "Purpose-Driven Life" on the commuter train in the morning (this was before Obama was running for Prez)then you know there's a bunch of people paying attention.

Just because YOU and many other people on this message board didn't know who he was, doesn't mean that he didn't already have a big following.

But yeah, go ahead and blame Obama for Warren's popularity.

By the way, even an organization that has some onerous tenets can do some good for some people. Given that many people don't worry much about homosexuals' rights but do worry about world poverty and other issues that Warren's church addresses (or pretends to address, take your pick), might explain the broad appeal of someone like Warren.
