Rick Warren stands up to Piers Morgan: “I fear the disapproval of God more than I fear your disapproval or the disapproval of society.”

This is how a real Christian is supposed to sound when he’s under attack for his beliefs by a liberal.

Pastor Rick Warren reaffirmed his opposition to gay marriage in an appearance on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live,” saying he fears “the disapproval of God” more than he does Morgan’s – or society’s – disdain for his views.

“While I may disagree with you on your views on sexuality, it does not give me a right to demean you, to demoralize you, to defame you, to turn you into a demon,” Warren said in an interview broadcast Friday evening.

He added, “See tolerance, Piers, used to mean we treat each other with mutual respect, even if we have major disagreements. Today tolerance has been changed to mean ‘all ideas are equally valid.’”

The preacher said that shift is “nonsense” and that all ideas are not equally valid.

…Morgan asked whether Warren could ever see himself – or Christianity more broadly – evolving to embrace gay marriage.

“I cannot see that happening in my life,” Warren responded. “I fear the disapproval of God more than I fear your disapproval or the disapproval of society.”

If you’re a Christian, your religion precludes you from supporting gay marriage and even if it didn’t, the way the issue is being used to persecute Christians should lead you to the same conclusion.
