Hillary at Saddleback

Response varies from deep concern to standing ovation

Rick Warren continues to practice an evangelical pattern established by Billy Graham: Invite "friendly outsiders" to the platform if it furthers the crusade.

Last year he had Barak Obama appear at his HIV/AIDS summit, this year it was Hillary Clinton (though six presidential candidates were invited, only Clinton make a personal appearance).

The reactions were mixed, from deep concern to the standing ovation she received there. Rick again said that he doesn't have to agree with every position of a speaker if the speaker furthers the cause of fighting HIV/AID.
