Rick Warren: Same sex marriage like punching a guy in the nose
Megachurch pastor Rick Warren on Tuesday night said that same sex relationships would still be sinful even if they were natural.
“It wouldn’t bother me if there was a ‘gay gene’ found,” he told CNN host Piers Morgan.
“Here’s what we know about life,” Warren continued. “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 feel like punching a guy in the nose. That 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.”
The evangelical Christian pastor said people were naturally predisposed to enjoy certain things, which could be good or bad. While those attractions themselves were morally neutral, acting on them could be wrong.
