Jeez. Could Rick Warren get any more pathetic?
Warren dropped out of the show [George Stephanopoulos's This Week] after comments came to light that seemed to contradict the megachurch pastor's stated neutrality on Proposition 8, the California measure that banned same-sex marriage.
Warren said he had never endorsed the proposition, which passed by a narrow margin in November, during an interview last week on CNN. But a video of Warren offering an endorsement later hit YouTube, embarrassing Warren and his allies.
Apparently, Rick Warren thought that he could pull a fast one on the nation and have a nice, old-fashioned "Don't hate me" tour by re-writing history a little bit. Too bad for him that YouTube exists.
As I said before, he knows the jig is up; his little "I'm a moderate fundamentalist" shtick isn't working. So he's trying to lie his way out of it.
The real surprise is that he's not as media-savvy as people thought he was.
