225. Rick Warren Is a Hypocrite and Protector of Pedophile Clergies
Rick Warren equates homosexuality to pedophilia. But he rarely, if not never, talks about the child sex crimes often committed by Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) churches' pastors and staffs within SBC churches. One of the biggest news that was underreported in 2008 was the SBC's refusal to create a database of the list of SBC pastors and staffs who are credibly alleged and/or convicted of child molestation.

If Rick Warren keeps talking against homosexuality and abortion but avoiding the child molestation within his own Christian denomination, he is not a true servant of God. In such case, Rick Warren is just another Christian hypocrite. In the end, you will wonder which of his associate and assistant pastors in the Saddleback Church are/were criminal child molesters.

See for more details. I see the child molestation issue within the SBC and other Christian denominations more serious issue than the issues of homosexuality than abortion. At least gays and lesbians and pro-choice people can make their voices heard. Children who fall victims to sex crimes by their own pastors are too often silenced.
