Rick Warren, MEGACHURCH Christian minister, has a lot of gay friends. You can tell this by the respect for them oozing from his well-considered words. In an interview with Piers Morgan of CNN, he had the following to say about the naturalness of homsexuality.
WARREN: Here’s what we know about life. I have all kinds of natural feelings in my life and it doesn’t necessarily mean that I should act on every feeling. Sometimes I get angry and I feel like punching a guy in the nose. It doesn’t mean I act on it. Sometimes I feel attracted to women who are not my wife. I don’t act on it. Just because I have a feeling doesn’t make it right. Not everything natural is good for me. Arsenic is natural.
The iron manners among you will want to say that he is merely claiming that just because something is natural does not make it right. And indeed in the very abstract such a point is a reasonable one.
But this is actually not an abstract point. Because the issue on the table nowadays is that Homosexuality is a natural form social interaction among humans and many other animals. The evidence is that people and other animals lead purpose-driven, fulfilling lives as homosexuals.
Warren rejects that, however. For him, homosexual behavior–i.e., sex–is morally wrong (because, he states elsewhere, the Bible says so).
So indeed, homosexual behavior is natural (though he says earlier in the interview that the jury is still out on this–he studies these things apparently), but it's natural like arsenic, the poison that will kill you, is natural. Or worse, it's natural like his urges to violent reprisal.
