I just caught word that Rick Warren’s 27 year old son has committed suicide. This is obviously tragic and yet… it’s hard not to think about the theological problem this creates for Christians like Warren, which was apparently referenced obliquely in a statement Warren put out. From The Christian Post (emphasis mine):
So, Rick Warren recently tweeted that “When students are taught they are no different from animals, they act like it.” This was interpreted as a comment on last week’s shootings in Colorado, but Warren later claimed he was referring to something else. But honestly, it’s a stupid comment either way.
