Megachurch Pastor Rick Warren To Piers Morgan: Being Gay Is Like Taking Arsenic

Megachurch Pastor Rick Warren To Piers Morgan: Being Gay Is Like Taking Arsenic

Appearing on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight last night, influential megachurch pastor Rick Warren said that being gay is like consuming poisonous arsenic… or having the desire to punch a man in the nose. Like homosexuality, both things are “natural,” Warren said, but we should never act upon them.

After a tense exchange over homosexuality and whether it is biological, Warren admitted that “it wouldn’t bother me if there was a ‘gay gene’ found,” because regardless of whether we deem it “natural,” it is still wrong.

He explained: “I have all kinds of natural feelings in my life and it doesn’t necessarily mean that I should act on every feeling. Sometimes I get angry and I feel like punching a guy in the nose. It doesn’t mean I act on it. Sometimes I feel attracted to women who are not my wife. I don’t act on it. Just because I have a feeling doesn’t make it right.”

“Not everything natural is good for me. Arsenic is natural,” he concluded.

1. Listening to Rick Warren is equvalent to taking arsenic.

Arsenic poisons you. The shit Rick Warren preaches poisons your mind.

They going to honor him by inviting him back? Or do they have someone else in mind this time?

13. warren's church is active in uganda, stirring up anti-gay hatred & violence. i also believe

 

that warren is some kind of spook/intelligence agent, myself, and his church's activities in the hot spot of africa (uganda/rwanda/congo) are acts in furterance of empire.

18. Yeah Rick Warren advocates mass murder in Uganda.

That Martin Ssempra that he works with to stir up the shit would make a great James Bond villain.

21. I live not too far from Saddleback.

I've long known about what he's doing in Uganda and who he's working with. The man is a truly rotten, vile scumbag who does not practice what he preaches and uses Jesus for financial gain and profit. I cringed when I found out he was speaking at the inauguration. He's no better than Pat Robertson or the rest of those lunatics.

22. Not very reachy-outy of him.

People swore themselves blind here that having him speak at the Inauguration would moderate his views and/or make his career fade. Looks like neither happened.
