The superior intellect of Piers Morgan is hard at work these days. Last week he invited people on his show to call them ‘stupid’ because they erroneously believe that the law of the land is the law of the land unless modified under the provisions designed to do just that.
The Constitution is not just irrelevant, but must be ignored because the founding fathers only had muskets, they could not envision ambiguously defined ‘assault weapons.’ Yet these same antediluvian fathers were wise enough to provide for future modification of the document in case the need should arise. So the avenue to change it is available, but the intellectual giants won’t use. So it can be changed, but they won’t.
How about a document that cannot be changed? Like the Bible. Well it goes without saying that the Bible should be changed.
In an interview with evangelical pastor Rick Warren, Morgan asserted that the Bible, like the Constitution, is “basically inherently flawed” and that, with regard to gay rights in particular, “it’s time for an amendment to the Bible.” “I do not believe the Bible is flawed,” Warren responded. “What I believe is flawed is human opinion, because it constantly changes.”
Now who or what grants such intellects the authority or ability to change the Bible to such men is beyond my feeble intellect.
All is to be judged right or wrong, lawful or unlawful, not by God or by actual laws. No, all is to be judged by a jury of our Piers.
“They will ridicule Christian simplicity; they will call it folly and nonsense, but they will have the highest regard for advanced knowledge, and for the skill by which the axioms of the law, the precepts of morality, the Holy Canons and religious dogmas are clouded by senseless questions and elaborate arguments. As a result, no principle at all, however holy, authentic, ancient, and certain it may be, will remain free of censure, criticism, false interpretations, modification and delimitation by man.”
