Sound-off on the Presidential Saddleback Church Forum!

Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, and best-selling author of The Purpose Driven Life, hosted a forum with Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama on Saturday.  The forum, which included a nearly standard list of questions for both candidates, offered the chance for America to see McCain and Obama provide answers to the same questions.  This forum has sparked a media frenzy of analysis of each candidate’s answers and approaches in the event, and has helped many people to develop a more in-depth understanding of both.  Some major issues discussed by the candidates were abortion, same-sex marriage, the definition of “rich”, and making difficult decisions. 

Listen to Free Market’s Jonathan Saenz in a discussion on the Political Hope Radio Show about the Saddleback Civil Forum. 

What do you think about McCain’s and Obama’s answers?  Who made the best points, or who was disappointing?

    After only listening to Obama’s answer to the question, “When does a baby receive human rights” it is difficult for me to vote for such a double-minded man. Also, from what I understand, he is against a federal amendment of traditional (biblical) marriage and thinks the states shoud determine the issue, which I do agree. However, he is opposed to the possible passing of an amendment in California which will validate marriage between a man and a woman and ban same-sex marriages(Proposition 8). Yet, he firmly believes marriage is between a man and a woman only. Such inconsistency.

    I think it was brilliant that The Lord used the pastor to ask questions that brought the truth from the these 2 men and revealed their true character!!

    I think it is great that the Church got a chance to interview or future leader! I loved all the way our voice was heard. I don’t know who was responsible for the forum, but I am glad to have been a part of it even though I was watching from home.
