Chelsea Clinton Grills Rick Warren on Same-Sex Marriage: VIDEO

Clinton_warren

Marriage equality advocate Chelsea Clinton interviewed Pastor Rick Warren on Rock Center last night.

Warren accused Clinton of pursuing a "hidden agenda" when she asked Warren if there's a difference between being able to accept someone's right to marry whomever they choose to, and whether or not he would approve of their choice.

Responds Warren: "What do you expect a Christian pastor to answer? I don't believe the Bible anymore?...Gay marriage might become the rule someday. That doesn't mean it's right."

  1. Why was this man on TV?

    Keep these fools on the Fox News Network---they only place they belong!

  2. Rather than expecting an honest answer, perhaps she's sowing seeds of reason which might have just the tiniest chance of blooming in that stone of a brain.

  4. I wish just once one of these conservative Christians would say, "As I understand the Bible, I believe it is wrong." It is one thing to believe that the Bible is the "infallible word of God," but it seems to me the epitome of arrogance to say,"my interpretation of the Bible is the correct one."

    I became immeasurably happier when I stopped caring what these people believe.

  5. GREED is a sin
    GLUTTONY is a sin
    HUBRIS is a sin

    ETC

  6. Why doesn't some journalist ask "If you believe that the bible is the word of god, then why don't we stone adulteresses?" Is there any ambiguity there? Warren dances and parries, but his position is indefensible. Same-sex marriages bring good things to society too, like homes for the unwanted children of heterosexual unions. Once this issue is finally past us, Warren will be tossed on the scrap heap of history along with this fellow bible bigots.

  7. Sadly, this faint probing by Chelsea is about the most I've ever seen Rick Warren be pressed within an interview. And yet he seems increasingly shrill, condescending and irrelevant. A shame she wasn't better prepared.

  8. Any one that confuses their 'disagreement' (the fantasy) for 'abject, aggressive harm' (reality) needs to be shunned by everyone with a working brain. Warren is a nasty piece of homophobic work.

  9. This man has sooo many false equivalencies... Forcing everyone too get baptized is not the same as allowing everyone to marry who they wish. Calling someone hateful because they actively fight against your civil rights isn't the same as calling someone hateful because you disagree with their religion. The logic, it is painful.

  10. If nothing else, those who want a theocracy are expecting the courts to rule on Biblical interpretations (God help us) and actual Christian practice. For example, do you baptize infants or only believers?

  11. I would love to see Chelsea Clinton interview her father on the subject of adultery.

  12. There is only one truth. God's truth. There are behaviors that bring depression, disease,pain, heartache...so because of God's love He wants to spare mankind this hurt and death He's told us through the Bible what will hurt us...and the way out.

    Accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior of sin (yes, all men have sinned!) brings Eternal Life. And this is the only way to God. This is GOOD NEWS!

    Each person makes their own choice...each person will have a consequence in both life and death as to their choice.
