CNN´s Morgan: Amend The Bible
Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/27/2012 11:35:52 AM

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 slaming 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,

This is hysterically funny--a complete fool, a joker unwanted in two countries, is now so delusional he thinks himself smarter, more enlightened than God and the Founding Fathers! He´d be drawing SRO crowds at the Comedy Club, but he´s on CNN, which still imagines itself to be a news organization.

Excellent suggestion by the OP!

In fact, I have every confidence that Mr. Morgan will find a greater appreciation for the God-given rights protected by the Second Amendment once he makes his criticism of the koran and calls for it to be "amended." Especially when he´s faced with the reaction of a significant percentage of muslims who may disagree (most definitely not "politely") with any such criticism he may have with respect to islam, the koran, mohammend, etc.

When PM shouts, "I´m mad as hell!" he´s using "mad" in the English meaning of the word, and he´s absolutely correct.

Don´t worry Piers.... one day you will be standing before the Lord and you can give your list of Biblical ´updates´ to HIM then. I doubt very much HE will agree but that presentation would truly be fun to watch! I hope we get that chance. I really want to see how fast the Piers ´smirk´ is wiped off his face. "Three, tw....."

Piers Morgan has declared his allegiance to Satan, not wanting any part of God´s Kingdom because of His WORD, the Bible. He wouldn´t like heaven anyway for Jesus will be King of kings and Lord of lords, total authority.

Why does Piers Morgan have a problem with Peace, Joy, Love and Grace? All God´s gifts to mankind. That´s why Jesus came in the first place, to set the captives free - to redeem us from Satan´s control.

Piers Morgan is just a glimpse of the atmosphere today in liberal America. We, as a country, have forsaken our "first love" and allowed Satan to spread his message of "steal, kill and destroy"!

Pray for Piers Morgan, that he sees the Light and that the liberal media, as well as the White House, open their eyes to witness God´s presence.

Prosperity in this country has stolen the faith-based lives once appreciated,thinking we can make it "on our own"!

Pray for President Obama too, that he be convicted by the Holy Spirit, to search his heart, knowing he is unable to lead without the power within given by God.

We, as a country, are on troubled ground. Pray for God´s intervention - His presence, His Love/Grace, His Peace/Joy, all available to anyone who will only repent and seek Jesus, just as those Wise Men came to honor the King! Amen

He wants to remove the part that says a man shall not lie with a man as he would with a woman.
He doe not like the truth that there is no joy of eternal communion between two such partners and one or the other is wrong wired.
So live your choices Morgan and accept the consequences what ever they are and try not to force your ideas upon us.

#6 I agree and understand but I take exception with one tiny piece:

He won´t be standing before the Lord. None of us will. He, like everyone else, will be on his knees with the complete understanding of what he has done and the ramifications of his choices. He won´t utter one word in defiance. All hope will be taken from him.

Unless he confesses and changes his ways.

Well said and amen, #8! My church has started a prayer circle for Mr. Morgan´s salvation. We are praying that he repents his blasphemy and asks for HIS forgiveness.
It is a pity that Mr. Morgan comes from a country where GOD´s word is changeable.
He must be driven out the Unites States and never allowed to return.

#18, according to the Bible, homosexuality IS a capital crime. Having "emotions" the other way don´t change God´s opinion of the despicable nature of this degenerate sin which can, and has, destroyed nations. It´s condemned not only in the Mosaic Code, but in the New Testament, as well.
If "Get Rich Quick" Rick disagrees with what God has mandated, then he´s not being faithful to God´s word.

As to "long walk off a short Piers" Morgan, he´s so scared of being stained in the Murdoch UK wiretap scandal he´s trying to get liberal media "inoculation" by kowtowing to the left as much as possible on air.

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS. Weiss Russell (he has changed his name from “Weiss Rasool,” the name under which he was convicted), is currently employed as a financial management analyst in the IRS Deputy Chief Financial Officer’s

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

The IRS still has not responded to allegations from a former Center for American Progress (CAP) employee that the left-wing think tank coordinates on editorial content with the White House — revelations that could threaten the organization’s nonprofit status. Former ThinkProgress reporter Zaid Jilani wrote a piece this week detailing his experiences working for the liberal blog, which is run by CAP’s 501(c)(4) nonprofit Action Fund, the advocacy arm of White House counselor John Podesta’s think tank. “When I started working at ThinkProgress at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in 2009, I did so because it was an

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very “income equality” President Obama says he is campaigning to fix. “Only in Washington could asking the bottom of the middle class to finance health care for the poorest families be seen as reducing inequality,” said the report from Unite Here. “Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage,” said the report, titled, “The

President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders. The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November.

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed.
