Saddleback Church removed several entries from its website, something which activist Mike Rogers noted during his elegant appearance on Hardball:
I compliment Rick Warren on seeing the error of his ways and changing his web site.
Well, this wasn't a removal of homophobia, but revisionism for PR purposes.

Tom's picture and his little blurb about not being judgmental are the addition. What's missing is the original statement:
[S]omeone unwilling to repent of their homosexual lifestyle would not be accepted at a member at Saddleback Church.
and its follow-up:
In equal desire to follow Jesus, we also would not accept a couple into membership at Saddleback who were not willing to repent of the sexual sin of living together before marriage
