One of my top observations about woke white people is that there is only one foundational difference between woke whites and white supremacists. And that is that white supremacists believe whiteness is good and woke whites believe whiteness is bad. Thus, the manifestations of these ideologies is often similar. In this case, Rick Warren is practicing segregation and specifically hosting a blacks-only woke healing service.
Protestia broke the story and it was easily verified on Saddleback Church’s website. There are several things wrong with this picture. The first being that Rick Warren assumes black people are interested in Critical Race Theory. In this, followed with him booking Critical Race Theorists for this session. Interestingly enough, the pasty Rick Warren is exempt from his discrimination.
Rick Warren is Southern Baptist, and Saddleback Church is one of the most influential churches in the convention. It is worth noting here that the event was a Zoom call because Rick Warren is not having in person gatherings because he believes Gavin Newsome is head of the church. In the end, this story is hardly surprising, but it is very revealing.
