Rev. Rick Warren, the anti-gay pastor whose acceptance to give the nation's prayer at President Barack Obama's inauguration ceremony incited a loud protest from gay activists, is expanding his message to print and the new media.

A new quarterly publication from Warren, titled Purpose Driven Connection, is being sold as part of a bundle of multimedia products. A Christian-based social-media website membership is included with each subscription, along with DVD guides for leading a prayer group.

The launch comes at a time when America is becoming increasingly secular. An American Religious Identification Survey released yesterday found that the percentage of Americans who define themselves as Christian has dropped from 86 percent in 1990 to 76 percent in 2008. And increasingly, more Americans say they have no faith at all. The new poll found 15 percent of Americans now say they have no religious affiliation. That number has nearly doubled in the past 18 years.

In announcing the Purpose Driven Connection, Warren said the magazine will be devoted to Christianity.

“There's a flat-out segment of Americans who are unashamed followers of Jesus Christ,” Warren said. “We're not trying to make this a magazine for everybody.”

Gay activists howled when Warren was chosen by Obama to give the invocation prayer. They pointed out the inconsistencies of choosing the Saddleback megachurch leader who likened gay marriage to polygamy and an incestuous relationship while Obama says he is a “fierce advocate of equality for gay and lesbian Americans” and threated protests. Ultimately, Obama remained committed to his choice and the inauguration went ahead as planned.

Purpose Driven Connection is offered by Reader's Digest Association for $30.
