It’s an old joke that the S.B.C. in Southern Baptist Convention stands for Slowly Becoming Catholic. Rick Warren, Founder of the Purpose Driven multinational, made it a concrete reality at last week’s Vatican organized “Humanum” event.
Rick Warren was one invitee among dozens selected by Pope Francis for the colloquium “in order to support and reinvigorate marriage and family life for the flourishing of human society”. No, Christ and Him crucified was not mentioned except in passing. About the only faith not represented was Lutheranism – presumably because the Liberal ones don’t support traditional marriage or limits on abortion, and because the Confessional ones are still anathema since 13 January 1547.
