Rick Warren's Uncalled for Tweet

Rick either needs to get someone to filter his tweets or he needs to fire the person who's doing his tweeting, but Rick Warren's recent tweet leaves a less-than-desirable taste in one's mouth.

I have a lot of respect for Rick and the work that Saddleback is doing, but this kind of stuff is not helpful, in my opinion. The responses have been pretty vicious too, which also is not desirable. I'm 99% sure this is the work of a ghost twitterer who handles Rick's twitter account. If they were working for me and posted something like this, it would probably be their last day on the job.

Let's make this clear. We're not in a contest here. When we compare ourselves to Saddleback, we lose sight of who our model should be. My life and my church are not measured against members of Saddleback nor their church. My life should be conformed to the likeness of Christ.

What do you think? Is this a case of a ghost tweeter crossing a line or a case of a famous pastor who needs to examine his communication more closely in the future?

Update: Tony Steward thinks it's probably Rick doing the tweeting, but is not sure of it.
