True to his right-wing evangelical stripes, Rick Warren, rather than apologizing for his on-the-record remarks about gay couples being in the same category as pedophiles, or saying that gay people are "immature" or that they can be "cured," Rick Warren now goes on the attack. He sees himself as the object of hate speech and "Christophobic." You can't make this stuff up.
