Mocking Rick Warren's weight puts you on his level

Rick Warren is a bigot. He's a typical capitalist Christianist that cherry-picks the Bible to adhere to his bigotry. He and his ilk are evolutionary refuse, who are trying desperately to keep their backward, hateful brand of humanity in existence, while getting rich for it.

But his weight makes no difference, regardless of your justification. All bigots justify their bigotry. Calling Warren "tubby," or a "glutton," or "fat ass" tells us nothing of him, but does showcase the bigotry of the name caller.

So for those like John Aravosis, Rude Pundit, et al, let me just say this - if you think it's clever to combat a homophobe like Warren by mocking his weight, you are no better than he is.
