WATCH: Pastor Rick Warren Compares Being Gay To Violence And Infidelity

On Tuesday, nationally known pastor Rick Warren defended his stand against gay marriage by telling CNN’s Piers Morgan that being gay may be natural, but that doesn’t mean it’s acceptable.

“I have all kinds of natural feelings in my life and it doesn’t necessarily mean I should act on every feeling,” Warren said. “Sometimes I get angry and feel like punching a guy in the nose. That doesn’t mean I act on it. Sometimes I, as you’ve pointed out, sometimes I feel attracted to a woman who isn’t my wife. I don’t act on it. Just because I have a feeling doesn’t make it right. Not everything natural is right. Arsenic is natural.”

Warren seems to be arguing that government should legislate morality. If that’s true, why are adulterers allowed to remarry?
