Rick Warren, Elton John Hold Hands, Joke About Kissing Before AIDS Panel

10 May


WASHINGTON — Controversial megachurch leader and author Rick Warren raised concerns Wednesday after joining hands with homosexual singer Elton John during a speech before a congressional hearing on AIDS funding, and joked what would happen if the two kissed.

“It would be the kiss heard ’round the world,” he said.

Photographs show the two raising their hands as they sat down to the witness table and laughing as Warren issued the caution to John.

    Elton John is somebody who grew a synthetic baby for his own amusement. He is an ABOMINATION before God, and this man shames himself by his proximity. I am disgusted, and yet this only confirms my suspicions about ‘mega churches’.

    Churchianity shows its true colors yet again.

    Either Warren will be permanently disgraced over this, or, more likely, he’ll go on to sell more books than ever.

    Warren also gave the inaugural prayer ceremony for Obama in 2009. Him, Obama, Elton John probably do threesomes in the White House while Michele and Hilary watch.

    This is what American Churchianity has come to…

    @ Sanne: Exactly!

    @ feeriker: I’m hoping for once, evangelicals recover their spines, and turn their backs on his purposeless drivel. But I’m not holding my breath…

    @ Eric: Ah yes, I remember that.

    Yikes! One hopes not!

    Jesus said, “What good is it to gain the whole world but forfeit your soul.” But to rub elbows with Elton John?

      Apparently that’s been a lifelong dream of Rick Warren’s; or so his speech and actions would lead one to believe…

    I’m sure it’ll help Warren market his message to all the…whatevers… in California.

    And p.s. — anybody notice the twin effect? Right down to the celebratory gaping mugs.

    I was hoping it was a mirror, and one of them wasn’t real.

    I remember back when I was a kid, I did want to hold hands with Elton’s partner a lot. LOL

    What a pervert, could have had Kiki Dee, and goes for Rick Warren!

    @ ray: 🙂

    @ feeriker: Indeed, the purpose being to hoodwink gullible evangelicals.

    @ PB: Exactly.

    @ Eric: Indeed! 🙂

    Kiki was cute!

    And yo Smelton — the only good thing about bad blood is letting it slide. Gonna hold you to that one.
