Saddleback Church tries to electronically disguise their message

Back in a previous post, I expressed my anger at Mr. Obama choosing Rick Warren to deliver his presidential invocation. In that message, I provided a link to the Pastor Warren's Saddleback Church website, which made it clear that homosexuals could not be members of his church.

What do you find if you click on that link today? Not a single word about gay, homosexual, or sexual sin. Could it be that Mr. Obama was able to open Pastor Warren's eyes to the possibility that discrimination based on type of sin is not acceptable in the Christian faith? Has Pastor Warren's and his followers' hearts grown three sizes over the Christmas holiday?

Not in the least.

Though they took down the text, you can still find the same message in an audio recording stashed away on the "Bible Questions and Answers" page. The content of audio recordings is not indexed by search engines like,, and So the change in the page appears to be just an effort to "lay low." Anyone want to bet the page goes back to the original text after the inauguration?

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
You really are a heel.
You're as cuddly as a cactus,
You're as charming as an eel.
Mr. Grinch.
