President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney

Please do not take part in Rick Warren's so-called Presidential Forum

Rick Warren, Pastor of The Saddleback Church, is an opportunist who shamelessly battened on the Aurora tragedy to advance his sectarian agenda with the ludicrous claim that the teaching of evolution was responsible for the shootings. Specifically, he said the following on Twitter: "When students are taught they are no different from animals, they act like it." It is utterly inappropriate for Presidential candidates to sanction this sort of nonsense with their presence.

      The Aurora tragedy was caused by of a single deranged individual. Using it to demonize the teaching of biological facts and well supported theories is not the act of a empathetic, moral, ethical or reasonable person. Attending the "Presidential Forum" gives tacit approval for Mr. Warren's appalling views.

      If you're going to consult with astrologers before the election, at least pick one who passed middle-school biology.

      The "Rev." Warren has had a detestable impact on public discourse. If both candidates DO attend, the guy who looks the most uncomfortable and regretful will get my vote.

      This is important, Rick Warren is intolerant of science and secularism. His repeated statements of intolerance cannot be rewarded.

      Animals are better behaved towards each other than most Christians are to other humans.
