More Terrifying News: Emulate Hitler Youth, says Obama’s Pick for Inaugural Pastor

This one is jaw-dropping.

Citing the revolutions of Hitler’s Youth, then Chairman Mao’s followers’ blind devotion to Communism, and finally–to top it all off–proudly introducing the notorious, genocidal president of Rwanda, Pastor Rick Warren urges thousands of his religious followers to give themselves to Jesus in the same, blind way. “What would happen if North American Christians said, ‘Jesus, we are yours.’?”

Are these appropriate analogies for Christians? Should Christians devote themselves to the cause like Hitler’s Youth?
