Now the Famous Theologian, Piers Morgan, Takes Aim at the Bible

American Thinker

He says the book is “inherently flawed” – and needs to be amended.

Piers handed down his decree while interviewing Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren on the December 24th “Piers Morgan Tonight.” Yes, on Christmas Eve. When other hosts might be discussing love, brotherhood, salvation, and all things ethereal, Captain Morgan was giving us the world according to Piers. And how would he improve the Good Book? Said he, “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.”

    How about ‘With his ratings sagging, Piers Morgan takes aim at anything that will get him attention’?

    His pompous arrogance is only matched by his dim-witted leftist understanding of things.

    I’m curious about how this a-hole is in real life. Is he an otherwise intelligent guy who chooses to be a Marxist agitator or is he another useful idiot?
    My IOTW spidey sense tells me he’s a useful idiot.

    A common trait of progressives is that they are convinced they are the smartest guy in the room….and everybody should do as they say.

    Most are like Morgan – harmless pricks that are fun to mock.

    Scripture Tradition and Reason

    First says he is a heretic, second says he is common tool, third says he is a coward.

    These three points are the standard for Anglo-Saxon Christianity (Anglican).

    Perhaps one of his brothers is an Anglican priest just like the other is a military officer so he is given license to talk about “Bible rights” just like he does with “Gun rights”.

    I must have missed his great volumes on theology, his great philosophical discourses that survived antiquity, his righteous life, to be called to be a servant of the Living God or his life of selflessness as a disciple and prophet of Christ.

    Or maybe, he’s just another fool whose ignorance races before him on his path to destruction.

    DBF – Actually the book of Rev warns against adding or taking away….from the book of Rev. Not the Bible, which wasn’t compiled until 325 AD (although the Tanakh had been around in final form since about 300 BC).

    Who?: Piers Stefan Pugue-Morgan. Born Piers Stefan O’Meara is an “inherently flawed” character with a British accent which makes him sound smart. zzz
    He was fired from The Mirror in 2004 for publishing fake photos of British soldiers torturing some mussies. Other than that he’s just a 6′ 1″ limey scumbag who works for CNN and has a viewing audience of 32.

    Hey Moe Tom. He’s also still under a cloud from his part in illegal telephone hacking of celebrities (the same thing that Rupert Murdoch took a hammering for except that he wasn’t involved). He was repremanded in the Leeson Inquiry as knowing it was taking place and not doing anything about it. Some suggest that he was even more directly involved. Hell, he’s a douchebag with a failing show, low ratings and there is no way and is desperate to make headlines.

    Diann,

    It’s important that no matter how small the voice, when we hear that voice we don’t ignore it.
    We isolate it, humiliate it, crush it to dust and send the message that that voice will not win the day in the public ether. It will take its rightful place in the trash bin at The Hall of Idiocy.
    Ignoring it allows it to grow.

    I know it’s cool to say
    Piers who?
    Who cares what he thinks?
    Nobody listens to him anyway.
    But none of that is true.

    Eugene Debs stood on a soapbox while people passed him by and thought, “what a loon, who is he? Nobody will take him seriously.”

    Until Piers Morgan is off the air we will continue our assault.
    And until CNN is not the Communist News Network, with their 100,000 viewers, we will continue our assault.

    Had I been there when Piers made this pronouncement – I would have laughed uproariously at the thought of him challenging God’s Word. So ridiculous. But yes, we need to pound him into the sand for this. He is accountable – and the world needs to see, while Christians are forgiving – we are still very capable of righteous anger – and that demands justice.
