Rick Warren Finally Denounces Ugandan ‘Kill All Gays’ Legislation

by Jim Newell

Hey give some credit to old Rick Warren, for finally publicly condemning the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality bill, on the Internet. While it’s a little late and incredibly convoluted (“Uhh uhh I have been secretly involved in quiet negotiations this whole time so uhh uhh shut up, lying bloggers”), it’s a much better public stance than “I’m not getting involved in that whole logical end-product of fanatical born-again Christianity that I helped bring to this deeply homophobic nation.” [YouTube]

Say, great that Rickey is finally taking steps to stop the kill-crazy machine he helped build. Kudos to you… Your prize? A bag of dicks. Now go find a closet to eat them in…

So, after publicly catching assorted hell for proudly being a bigoted, homophobic asshat, this hippo-crite *NOW* has a magical change of heart and decides to “turn the other cheek” towards our man-lovin’ brethren?

Oh, and our lesbian sistren (?), too!

You get blown in enough toilet stalls like Rick, you come to the realization that you don’t want all gay people killed.

“I don’t hate the gays as much as you think.”

6:32 of that pathetic self-hating queen parading her grandiose act like she’s the normal one? I will pass.

But let’s pretend I did watch it. My response: Fat-faced pencil-dick sez what?

facehead December 10, 2009 at 12:40 pm

Thank Heavens! I get all my gays from Uganda.

Rev. Peter Lemonjello December 10, 2009 at 12:41 pm

Thank Xenu Rick Warren is using such a popular Ugandan medium, such as the internets, to deliver his message.

Eat a goatskin bag of mutilated genitals.

Dick and Sarah aren’t the only ones full of crap.

Can you really be a minister with a porn ‘stache like that?

SayItWithWookies December 10, 2009 at 12:46 pm

Shorter Rick: It’s unconscionable to legislate killing gays. You’ve got to disenfranchise and marginalize them first.

Aflac Shrugged December 10, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Yes, Rick. I’m sure your pollsters prayed real hard on this.

Serolf Divad December 10, 2009 at 12:48 pm

OK, on second thought maybe mass murder isn’t such a good thing.

petehammer December 10, 2009 at 12:49 pm

And not a moment too late!

While I still remember, I’d like to take this moment, while I have the chance, to tell our armed forces not to commit atrocities in Vietnam or Cambodia. Thank you.

Is this what it takes to get him to put on a fucking tie?

Rev. Peter Lemonjello December 10, 2009 at 12:52 pm

[re=475600]Serolf Divad[/re]: mass suicides, on the other hand…….

Rick Warren: “You know that thing I was kinda leading you torward but not actually telling you to do in so many words? Uuuuhhhh…..don’t do that…..”

Uganda: “But….dammit…you SAID it was a GOOD thing. Didn’t you?”

Rick Warren: “I have no recollection of that.”

S.Luggo December 10, 2009 at 12:55 pm

Responding to calls from gay-rights activists to denounce an anti-homosexuality law being considered in the African nation of Uganda, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley said HE IS NOT A MEMBER OF THAT COUNTRY’S PARLIAMENT and is unfamiliar with the particulars of the law …

I’m glad that rumor has finally been laid to rest.

petehammer December 10, 2009 at 12:58 pm

[re=475616]S.Luggo[/re]: Oh, sweet, so we can expect him not to mouth off about N. Korea, Iran, Iraq, etc.

If God hates the gheys so much, why did he let Michelangelo go all Fab–U–Lous on the Sistine Chapel, while all he let Rick Warren do is write a crappy, hackneyed piece of feel-good psychobabble?

Earl got the legal brains, Jennifer got the singing talent, and Rick — well, Rick’s family and has a moustache. (You’d rather clothe him than feed him.)

Fuck you fat, lying pig. Merry Christmas!

queeraselvis v 2.0 December 10, 2009 at 1:05 pm

[re=475583]Mr Blifil[/re]: Amen to that. I got to 1:18 and had to shut it off before getting all shouty and putting my fist through the monitor.

Also, Rick, since you’re so concerned about “Your Role,” might I suggest that you own up to your role as a morbidly obese felcher of Tanzanian Boy Scouts, m’kay?

Uganda’s been Rick-rolled.

Looks like the “evil Spock” version of Jerry Falwell.

El Pinche December 10, 2009 at 1:18 pm

From comic book guy to Jerry Falwell analog. This tubby christofascist is moving up in the world.

“Does the bare minimum in the way of simple human decency when cornered like a rat and scrutinized intensely and publicly” is not exactly a glowing performance review. Given who he believes he’s working for, you’d think he’d be at least a little worried about that. Go figure.

He said peace, whenever an American dignitary says peace it is time for a another shot of Aquavit according to the official Nobel Prize web site.

Shakespeare had it wrong. He should have said, “Kill all the preachers.”

Our new company, Political Scandal Betting Pools, is taking bets now on the week and month and year when the Rick Warren Gay Sex Scandal is revealed. Ages and races and numbers of participants with Warren in the scandal don’t matter. You do win a copy of the aptly-titled “Going Rogue” if you correctly guess the person or persons involved in the Gay Sex Scandal with Warren.

I think Rick Warren once managed Kamala, the Ugandan Giant, and subsequently ate him.

Hey, why’s L. Ron Hubbard wearing that Chuck Todd disguise?

Wait a minute…oh no…he’s a…GATECRASHER!


MalS December 10, 2009 at 2:55 pm

I’d be more persuaded that this had some valueother than as personal spin control, if he also spoke out in explicit repudiation of the C Street Family and its agenda. And maybe if he went to Uganda and spoke on radio there. Because I have a tiny, vague inkling that a Youtube vid is aimed at some other audience than Ugandan legislators. Call me cynical.

proudgrampa December 10, 2009 at 3:04 pm

[re=475833]MalS[/re]: Wow, Mal, that’s pretty cynical…

LowerdPeninsula December 10, 2009 at 11:57 pm

Wait, Jim, why are you giving him any credit? Do you give credit to a guy that sets a house on fire with people in it, but then decides to try and put it out while the fire is still raging?
