Pastor Rick Warren Calls Upon the Pastors of Uganda to Reject the Anti-Homosexuality Bill

Pastor Rick Warren, in a YouTube message, calls the bill 'Unjust', 'Extreme' and 'Unchristian.'  Now, Warren needs to denounce Turaki's anti-gay hate-speech in the featured article on homosexuality in the Africa Bible Commentary which commentary Warren has fully endorsed.

In an Other Sheep eNews dated October 19, 2009, Other Sheep called upon its readers to write Rick Warren, John Stott and Douglas Carew and the Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA) to denounce the Anti-Homosexuality Bill of Uganda citing their endorsement of the Africa Bible Commentary with its anti-gay hate-speech in a featured article entitled "Homosexuality" by Nigerian evangelical scholar Yusufu Turaki as reason for their need to speak out.

We are happy to learn that Rick Warren has done so today. Other Sheep asks Douglas Carew of the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (Kenya) and John R. W. Stott (England) to join Warren in his denouncement of the Ugandan bill and to further more denounce the anti-gay hate-speech in the Africa Bible Commentary (see article in right column of this Other Sheep December 10, 2009, eNews).
