Is Rick Warren Backpedaling?

Beliefnet Editor Steve Waldman responds to a CT interview with Rick Warren.

Finally, he's currently getting mocked for claiming to have not endorsed Proposition 8, the California amendment banning gay marriage. To be fair, in the Larry King interview he didn't actually claim that he hadn't endorsed Prop 8. Indeed, he actually acknowledged that he had supported Prop 8. Rather, he claimed he didn't "campaign" for it. A slight but meaningful difference.
