Rick Warren cancels candidate forum, avoiding embarrassment of refusals by candidates

Titled “Rick Warren cancels candidate forum, cites uncivil discourse – Fox News”:

Romney campaign officials say the campaign had not accepted the invitation nor put it on any schedule. At the time the proposed Warren forum was first publicized, the Romney camp said it was not planning to attend.

So what does Rick Warren do? He cancels the forum, blaming the campaign ads that have come out.

Yeah, right. Even Christians across the land are beginning to wake up to this Pharisee. Gives big alms supposedly, while pushing for government to pay those alms around the world. Which means not out of his pocket, except like Jesus said of the Pharisees of old, out of “their substance”. Contrast that with the poor widow who gives “all her living” as unto the Lord.

I was a missionary, and I believe in helping the poor, and “Give to him that asketh of thee”.

But your money and my money and the other guy’s money does not by rights belong to anybody in government, and it doesn’t belong to other voters either.

A majority vote does not make confiscation anything less than theft.

The Earth is the Lord’s and all that is therein, and that includes whatever Caesar thinks belongs to him!
