In a much anticipated appearance, Pastor Rick Warren was scheduled to speak to George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week today. The interview would have been his first since he appeared on Larry King last week and controversially claimed that he never endorsed Prop. 8 in California. Today at the top of his show, Stephanopoulos announced:
Happy Easter and Happy Passover. For those of you tuning in this morning expecting to hear from Pastor Rick Warren, we were too, but the pastor’s representatives canceled moments before the scheduled interview, saying that Mr. Warren is sick from exhaustion. We hope he recovers quickly and we’re going to turn instead to the hostage standoff off the coast of Somalia.
