Rich cizik, the vice president of the National Association of Evangelicals, was asked to resign because he publically supproted civil unions for gays.
For me, this begs a few questions: did NAE criticize President Bush, Sarah Palin or John McCain for supporting civil unions for gays?
And, even more interestingly, how will they feel about this exchange I had with Rick Warren (full interview to be published later today):
Beliefnet — Do you support civil unions or domestic partnerships?
Warren — I don’t know if I’d use the term there but I support full equal rights for everybody in America. I don’t believe we should have unequal rights depending on particular lifestyles so I fully support equal rights.
Beliefnet — What about partnership benefits in terms of insurance or hospital visitation?
Warren — You know, not a problem with me. The issue to me, I’m not opposed to that as much as I’m opposed to redefinition of a 5,000 year definition of marriage.
Will they ask Warren to leave the National Association of Evangelicals?
I’m guessing that what really happened here was the NAE has been looking for a reason to axe Cizik for a long time and thought this would do.
