Anderson, however, tacked on a correction at the end of his article after Pastor Warren wrote to say that he disagrees with Wallis's "big government approach." Warren also claimed to be a fan of Von Mises.
Why do I have a hard time believing that? Oh, right. I remember now.
Warren was one of the signers of the Evangelical Climate Initiative. In fact, his name appears just below that of Jim Wallis on the ECI web site. As you may recall, the ECI calls for federal legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through "cost-effective, market-based mechanisms." Of course, as we all know, having government involved means it will be neither cost-effective nor market-based.
Dr. Anderson, there's no need to apologize to Rick Warren. I admire you for trying to rectify what you saw as a mistake on your part, but I think your initial assessment was correct. Warren most definitely falls in with the statist crowd.
