Rev. Rick Warren has suggested that the legalization of gay marriage is inevitable.

The 58-year-old Warren is the founder and senior pastor of the Lake Forest, California-based megachurch Saddleback Church and the author of the best-selling book The Purpose Driven Life.

In an appearance on CBS This Morning, Warren was asked about his opposition to marriage equality.

“I just – I have biblical views of what I think marriage is about,” he said. “I am in favor of not redefining marriage – I'm not. It's not illegal to have a gay relationship in America. And so, it's not a big issue for me.”

When host Norah O'Donnell stated that Americans are increasingly endorsing the issue, Warren did not challenger her.

“Well, as a pastor, I believe in both the good news – that I believe Jesus is who he said he was, the son of God. But I also believe in the common good. And we're in a democracy where nobody wins all the time, okay? For instance, I happen to believe life begins at conception. But that's not the law, okay?”
