Pastor shows religious right’s true colors

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

Let’s hear it for Wiley Drake!

The pastor of the First Southern Baptist Church of Buena in Buena Vista, Calif., has lashed out at fellow religious conservative posing as a moderate Rick Warren.

The Orange County Register reports that Drake sent an e-mail blistering Warren for accepting President-elect Barack Obama’s invitation to give the invocation at Obama’s swearing-in ceremony.

Drake is refreshingly venom-filled, unlike the back-pedaling Warren, who, in the wake of criticism over his selection, has disavowed so many of his anti-gay statements, not to mention scrubbing the Saddleback Church website of anti-gay statements, that it’s hard to keep track of all his flip-flops.

Drake tells it like it is, and is merely speaking out loud what a lot of religious conservatives are thinking, even while trying to soften their stance like Warren.

Much easier to deal with a wolf acting like a wolf than one wearing the sheep’s guise.
