Piers Morgan has been in the hot seat lately for his views of the Second Amendment and gun control. Now he has set his sights on another staple of American life, The Bible. Morgan said in an interview with Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren that the Bible and the Constitution are “inherently flawed” and need to be amended.
The discussion was held on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. During a debate about American society, Piers interjected that, because the Bible does not include a permission for gay marriage, like an amendment to the Constitution repealing the Second Amendment, Morgan thinks the Bible should be updated.
Morgan said to Warren:
“Both the Bible and the Constitution were well intentioned but they are basically, inherently flawed. Hence, the need to amend it. My point to you about gay rights, for example, it’s time for an amendment to the Bible.”
Morgan had been specifically debating the need for a stronger separation of Church and State with Pastor Warren.
Warren immediately disagreed with Morgan’s thoughts on the Bible, saying:
“Uh, no, not a chance. What I believe is flawed is human opinion, because it constantly changes.”
Both men were able to stay civil in the debate and not devolve into character attacks or insults. Both commented on the need to keep these debates civil for the sake of society.
Morgan has been in the media spotlight since his outspoken views on the need for gun control in America after the Newtown School massacre. Morgan has gone as far as to call spokespeople for gun groups stupid and idiots.
Second Amendment supporters have filed a petition to the White House signed by over 75,000 people calling for the CNN host’s deportation back to Britain. This development led to a counter protest in the UK “Stop Piers Morgan from being deported back to the UK from America.”
