>This is bewildering

December 4, 2009

>Falling is love is a wonderful experience. For some, it leads to long-term relationships or even marriage (for the privileged majority).

Rick Warren, the purpose driven pastor, did it differently. He married someone he was not in love with and was not attracted to, asking her to marry him on their second date, because “he said he heard God clearly tell him that this is who he will marry.” His wife did not love him either, but she agreed because “she recalled hearing God say, “I’ll bring the feelings.”

This story, via JoeMyGod and originally at Christian Post, is more than a little strange.

“Through interviews with Sheler, Rick and Kay Warren disclosed that they were not attracted to each other nor had feelings for each other when they agreed to be married. Instead, they believed that God had spoken to each of them saying this is the person they should marry.”

I’ll let you come to your own conclusions, but can’t offer too much respect for someone whose marriage began more a like Britney Spears relationship than a love story. Especially when he, as Joe said, has “no problem at all interfering with the relationships of other people who are madly in love with the person they want to marry.”

On a completely different subject I just have to share this picture of Glenn Shadix and Johnny Depp. Glenn was attending an event honoring Tim Burton at New York’s Museum of Modern Art last month. Read about it at Glenn’s blog. Johnny Depp! People magazine’s sexiest man of the year!
