Piers Morgan has done it again, this time saying that both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution are “inherently flawed” and need new “amendments.”
During Morgan’s Monday, December 24 broadcast of his cable spectacle, CNN’s British import once again attacked America’s most deeply held principles by slamming both the Constitution and the Bible.
Morgan was interviewing Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren when he essentially went for the throat.
“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,” the CNN host said.
Naturally, Pastor Warren told the cable talker that at least he didn’t believe the Bible was flawed.
But Morgan thought it was all pretty funny. “You should compile a new bible,” Morgan guffawed.
As he always does, Morgan hid behind a faux fealty to civility telling the good pastor that it was necessary to remain “civil” in order to have a constructive discussion. Even as he attacks everyone else’s beliefs he pretends he’s being civil about it.
Take his gun “townhall,” for instance. His “civility” included calling guests liars, screaming over them, and preventing them from answering his questions.
“The only end of writing is to enable the reader better to enjoy life, or better to endure it.”
