Susan Russell to Rick Warren

'Seriously?' An Open Letter to the Purpose Driven Pastor - a Huffington Post article by Susan Russell in reply to an interview with Rick Warren on the redistribution of wealth and on contraception. Here's just the end of it ...

[...] And that brings me back to a couple of purpose driven things. First there's the purpose of God's preferential option for the poor made manifest in the work and witness of Jesus of Nazareth. And then there's the purpose of liberty and justice for all meant to protect not just freedom of religion for those who choose to practice it but freedom from religion for those who just want equal access to health care. The former would be in the Bible and the latter in the Bill of Rights.
