(Newser) – Is Piers Morgan bucking for a new petition to get him deported? Following one to have him sent to Britain over his views on guns—and another by Brits refusing to take him back—the suddenly controversial CNN host called the Bible "inherently flawed," reports the Daily Mail. He made the bold statement this week while interviewing pastor Rick Warren about gay rights. "Both the BIble and the Constitution were well-intentioned but they are basically, inherently flawed," said Morgan. "Hence, the need to amend it."

"Not a chance," Warren responded. "What I believe is flawed is human opinion, because it constantly changes." But Morgan kept charging: "My point to you about gay rights for example—it's time for an amendment to the Bible. You should compile a new Bible." In the end he was civil, saying they could "agree to disagree," but conservative Christians quickly returned fire, reports Fox News. "For Morgan to label God’s divine revelation as 'flawed' because it doesn't confirm to his own opinion is the epitome of arrogance," said a Baptist pastor in Dallas. "My guess is that the Bible will be around a lot longer than Morgan’s program."

This topic will never be solved. I personally don't fully agree with the Old and New Testaments but some has proven true and others seem to be fantasy and folklore. The Bible constantly contradicts itself. On the other hand I hope there is an afterlife for the people who suffer all of their lives like the poor, starving people in third world countries. For those who believe in nothing I guess it would suck for you to die and find there is something there but you are eternally destined to be nothing but a rotting corpse.

The Bible is fictitious horseshit. The "believers" are brainwashed idiots.
