No Debate, No Protest Allowed At Rick Warren's "Civil Forum"

LAKE FOREST, California. August 16, 2008. New World Order puppet Pastor Rick Warren held a two-hour "Civil Forum" at Saddleback Church this past Saturday evening for approximately 5,000 of his 100,000 members who managed to procure tickets well in advance of the exclusive event. And Warren certainly kept the the forum civil, as he lobbed softball questions to presidential hopefuls Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) in separate interview sessions -- no discussion or debate allowed!
Defeating the purpose of an open forum, Warren took extraordinary measures to ensure that there was no absolutely no interaction between either of the Senators: having lost the coin toss, McCain was kept in a sound-proof room -- humorously dubbed the "dome of silence" -- while Obama was onstage being interviewed by Warren.

"We have to learn how to have civility in our civilization, how to stop being rude, how to stop demonizing each other and how to have a discussion and a debate, because we all want America to be a greater place," Warren said.
How civil of him.

But rather than allow the candidates open discussion or debate, or rather than use the opportunity to grill the candidates on the real issues of endless war, dollar devaluation, wiretapping, warrantless searches, loss of habeas corpus & the burgeoning police state -- questions that need to be answered quickly in order for "America to be a greater place" -- Warren chose to lob religious "gimmes" like, "What does it mean to you to trust in Christ?" and typical evangelical Balkanizers such as, "At what point does a baby get human rights?"
Ironically, Warren wrapped up the staged love fest by stating that, "one of the greatest freedoms we have here in America is the freedom of speech -- even the freedom to protest this meeting."
Ironic, as protesters weren't allowed inside the "open forum" to ask the really tough questions that protesters tend to ask. No, apparently the megachurch isn't big enough to hold differences of opinion. And, since Saddleback Church is located on an 120-acre plot of rough terrain, the protesters were forced to stand about a quarter of a mile away waving signs & bullhorning random passersby in a virtual "free speech zone" in front of the local AM/PM Mini-Mart -- a location where protesters couldn't even see the church building containing the New World Order puppets they had gathered to protest.

Warren's attempt to quash open discussion and debate may end up being the New World Order's undoing, however, as Dan Noel, Assistant Organizer for Orange County 9/11 Truth's Tyranny Response Team, had this to say about Saturday's protest: "We had quite a bit of traffic and many protesters who came there for distracting topics 'discovered' 9/11 truth. I think I almost convinced a communist that he would help his cause better by becoming active with us and at least one cop showed curiosity about 9/11 truth."
