Hillary at Saddleback
Response varies from deep concern to standing ovation
Rick Warren continues to practice an evangelical pattern established by Billy Graham: Invite "friendly outsiders" to the platform if it furthers the crusade.
Last year he had Barak Obama appear at his HIV/AIDS summit, this year it was Hillary Clinton (though six presidential candidates were invited, only Clinton make a personal appearance).
The reactions were mixed, from deep concern to the standing ovation she received there. Rick again said that he doesn't have to agree with every position of a speaker if the speaker furthers the cause of fighting HIV/AID. For those, like me, who are catching up with stories from Friday and the weekend, you may find these summaries helpful:
