Piers Morgan: ‘It's Time For an Amendment to the Bible’

Piers Morgan: ‘It's Time For an Amendment to the Bible’ By Elizabeth Harrington December 27, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – After his gun-control views landed him on a petition to be deported from the United States, CNN host Piers Morgan is now contending “it’s time for an amendment to the Bible” because, like the Constitution, it is “inherently flawed.”

In an interview that was broadcast on Christmas Eve, Morgan told evangelical Pastor Rick Warren that due to changing cultural views on gay marriage the Bible, too, must be changed.

The British television host explained that a passage that states adultery is punishable by death proves the Bible is “flawed.” (Read the full interview here.)

“The Bible and the Constitution were well-intentioned, but they are basically inherently flawed,” Morgan said. “Hence the need to amend it.”

“My point to you about gay rights, for example, it's time for an amendment to the Bible,” he said.

Warren said, "No," there is “not a chance” of that happening.

“What I believe is flawed is human opinion because it constantly changes,” said Warren. “In fact, we do it every eight years in America. We have a -- we have a change in opinion; what was -- what was hot is now not.”

“And I willingly admit that I base my worldview on the Bible, which I believe is true, and truth,” Warren said. “My definition of truth is if it's new, it's not true. If it was true 1,000 years ago, it'll be true 1,000 years from today.”

“Opinion changes, but truth doesn't,” he said.

"We're going to agree to disagree on that," said Morgan.

I think it’s time to amend Morgan’s visa, from approved to disapproved and deported.
But I hear the Brits don’t want him back!

He'd probably like that.

Drop him busk naked with no supplies, food, or survival essentials into the deepest part of that Amazon jungle.

It’s time to amend the laws of nature so as to ban mutant life forces like Morgan. At least he should be neutered to prevent his kind from multiplying.

We have enough wackos of our own. No need to import some leftist fop from the dying country of England.

Send him back to Muzzieland. There’s a Moslem fanatic cleric with a hook who wants to talk to him, up close.

Headlines: “Morgan bores Islamic fanatic to death. Snakes leave Ireland, again. Prince Charles gets a brain.”

Yes, Piers, England needs you (like another bout of the Black Plague).

Like a reverse Pilgrim, go East old man, go East!

“Opinion changes, but truth doesn't,” he [Warren] said.

"We're going to agree to disagree on that," said Morgan.

Tells you all you need to know. When you discuss an issue with someone, you have to agree on certain bedrock premises to avoid talking past each other. There's no arguing rationally with a man who believes that absolute truths are as changeable as opinion. There is just no basis for discussion.

Readers to “The Sun” sort of an affiliate with the NY Post say they don’t want him back. It took forty years to get rid of him. Keep him.

You know that his ratings have stunk up the entire universe since he took over for Larry King. He's just trying to hype anything he can in weird controversary so he can attract attention, both good and bad, but expecially bad like the artist that put Christ in Piss!!!

He couldn't wait till after he was dead for fame and wealth like most respectable artists.

Foreigner and British “subject” Piers Morgan is allowed to work in America and to broadcast British socialist, anti-Constitutional, anti-American views on American TV every night but Michael Savage was denied entry into Britain for fear he would do what?

This Intellectual Infant is welcome to take it up with The Author; one supposes, however, that He will remain somewhat unreceptive.

What the hell ever happened to deporting undesirables? Huh?

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Why does anybody even pay this buffoon any attention?!?

His rating's are in the toilet and he's trying to be controversial just to keep his name in the news and get a few liberals to watch his show. We play right in to his hand by getting in a froth over every "over the top" thing he says. He's irrelevant, his shows irrelevant and they both should be treated as such.

Another really untalented, boring celebrity flogging for attention.

What an absolute BORE.

What’s next for his encore? Another shibbolith on the right or center.

You know he would never say anything remotely offensive to the usual suspects.

As I said, forget the utter bore.

Here here! Absolutely!

He’s a ghastly BORE!

This is the type of person at a cocktail party who sticks to you like used chewing gum on the sole of your shoe.

Then he proceeds to cause everyone’s eyes to glaze over as they attempt to move out of hearing range. He even has the cheek to think he’s clever!

In the worst case, he causes untold misery for the hosts when the party is utterly destroyed, people leave in droves and this BORE continues to STAY.

This is the basic outlook of “progressives”, which is based on chronological snobbery. Things which come later than others are not better by definition. People a hundred or more years ago would look at wonder at our technology, but would also often be aghast at our morals and behavior. Progressivism and Christianity are fundamentally at odds on many beliefs, but the core is that progressives have a religious belief in the perfectibility of human nature, and Christianity specifically excludes that belief.
