Rick Warren delivered the invocation at President Obama’s inauguration, and he is also one of the most well-known pastors in the country. He does not, however, support the administration’s new healthcare law requiring religious organizations to pay for abortions. In his own words:
I’m not a Catholic but I stand in 100% solidarity with my brothers & sisters to practice their belief against govt pressure [...]
I’d go to jail rather than cave in to a government mandate that violates what God commands us to do. Would you? Acts 5:29.
By the way, anyone who thinks that this is just a Catholic issue is sadly mistaken. Protestants have universities and hospitals that will be required by law to pay for abortions for their employees. Thus, evangelical Protestants are facing the same threat to religious freedom that the Catholics are.
