â€œPastor Rick Warren to Speak at the King Memorial
The service is scheduled for Jan. 19 at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta and is included in the official program of the 10-day King Center’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, which begins on Jan. 10.
The Reverend Mark Whitlock, senior pastor at Christ Our Redeemer AME Church in Irvine, said Obamaâ€™s invitation opened the door for positive communication between the conservative movement and the civil rights movement.â€

I always get knowledge reading the Field Negro.Â Rick Warren Â is speaking at Ebenezer Baptist Church!!Â This truly floored me. How did this happen. Well I know how this happened. Years of backdoor dealing by the UnGodly megachurches have finally come to this. This is what the Civil Rightâ€™s Movement has been working for? Acceptance by a bunch of racist, homophobic, closed minded jerks?
