Rev. Rick Warren has said that he is okay with homosexuality being natural, but then added that not everything natural is good.

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

In an appearance on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, host Piers Morgan asked Warren if being gay is a choice.

“You know what – I think the jury's still out on that. It wouldn't bother me if there was a 'gay gene' found,” he said.

“Here's what we know about life: I have all kinds of feelings in my life and it doesn't necessarily mean that I should act on every feeling. … 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 video is embedded on this page.
