Who better to advise on religious liberty issues than a useful idiot for a Hamas front? In July 2009, Warren addressed the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America, despite the fact that it has been named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas funding case.
Federal prosecutors said that ISNA had an “intimate relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood,” and were “intimately connected with the HLF” — that is, the Holy Land Foundation, the Hamas-funding charity — “and its assigned task of providing financial support to HAMAS.”
Warren is also a close friend of Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam), despite Cat’s nasheed that contains the lines, “I’m praying to Allah to give us victory over the kuffar,” and his support for the murder of Salman Rushdie for offending Islam.
Yes, clearly Rick Warren is just the guy to advise Rubio on religious liberty. And that’s it for Rubio.
“Ballot Boxing: Rubio gets new religious advisers,” by Jamie Dean, World, January 5, 2016 (thanks to Alan):
Less than a month before the presidential primary season begins with the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is set to announce a campaign advisory board focused on religious liberty issues.
Rubio’s campaign tapped a handful of well-known evangelicals for the volunteer board, including pastor Rick Warren, theologian Wayne Grudem, Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, and Thomas Kidd, an author and professor of history at Baylor University (Kidd also occasionally writes for WORLD).
