This is just a bit more grist for the Rick Warren debate.   Just as he took the side of the anti-gay bishops in Africa, Rick Warren has welcomed the anti-gay churches in America who are choosing to leave the Episcopal church only because of the wider church’s inclusions of Gay people. 

… [The Episcopal Church has] already considered me an adversary after partnering on projects with Kolini, Orumbi, and Nzimbi, and writing the TIME bio on Akinola.  But since last summer… I’ve been on Gene Robinson and other’s attack list for my position on gay marriage. ….[Our] brothers and sisters here at St. James in Newport Beach lost their California State Supreme Court case to keep their property. We stand in solidarity with them, and with all orthodox, evangelical Anglicans. I offer the campus of Saddleback Church to any Anglican congregation who need a place to meet, or if you want to plant a new congregation in south Orange County.- Rick Warren

I wonder what Brian Mclaren and Melissa Etheridge think of that?
