Religion News Service notes that Rick Warren has learned about the AIDS crisis.
California megachurch pastor Rick Warren, at a White House HIV/AIDS discussion Wednesday, said the church has been a latecomer to addressing the epidemic but is now “here to stay.”
“The church was late to the table on this issue and we have repented of that, but we are here to stay,” he said. “This is not flavor of the week for me. This is a long-term battle.”
What church does he mean by “the Church”? Saddleback? Most churches I know have been “at the table” since the ’80s.
