It is curious how much 'progressives' read into Rick Warren's comments to Sean Hannity. Assassination? And why do they assume that he is referring to Iran when he is talking of evildoers against whom violence is justified? Does the context not leave open the possibility that he is talking about Israel? Note that Warren's first 'yes' in this transcript is very misleading (if you look at the clip, it is clear he is not agreeing to killing Ahmadinejad, but just pausing before he addresses the entire issue). Warren has already gone out of his way to praise Syria, a move which World Jewry considers tantamount to anti-Semitism. I would think it is absolutely clear that the Christian, but not Christian-Zionist, position has to be that the only 'evildoers' in the Middle East against whom violence might be justified are Jews living in Israel.
I note that the Geigh Lobby - more 'one issue guys', and not at all progressive - is attacking Warren's efforts to stop AIDS in Africa by using the kind of slimy guilt-by-association tricks they would be the first to whine about if used by a Limbaugh type.
