Pastor Mark Driscoll on why he didn't become a priest: "The vow of life-long celibacy wouldn't have worked for me"

On Friday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Pastor Mark Driscoll to the program for a remarkably candid and honest discussion on faith and relationships.

The author of a new book, "Real Marriage," Driscoll endorses intimacy between a husband and wife:

"If you're married, you should enjoy one another. And it helps to safeguard the marriage from all kinds of problems," Driscoll tells host Piers Morgan.

A former Catholic who has since adopted a more "Protestant position," Driscoll explains his personal path:

"I couldn't have become a priest, because the vow of life-long celibacy wouldn't have worked for me.

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Driscoll details the ways in which he looks at "biblical principles" and stays "faithful to the scriptures."

    I thought Piers Morgan did a horrible interview with Pastor Mark Driscoll. Piers would ask question and not let the pastor answer the question fully. Piers was trying to trap Pastor Mark is saying something that altered the meaning of the book. Then Piers didn't even talk much about the book and the meaning behind it, but rather push so many question on the Pastor about other issue. On the interview before with Nick Cannon, Piers allowed him to talk and explain his life and how Cannon and his wife were, but when it comes to a topic about GOD or a Pastor Explaining GOD, Piers didn't want to hear it. If he is going to have Pastors on his TV Program, Piers needs to give the same respect as to all guest. I was Mad and discouraged about Piers Morgan, because of that I will no longer watch his TV Program. Piers just wants to give his on opinions and not here what the Pastor had to say about the goodness of Christ. Shame on CNN and Piers Morgan.

      I agree. Here I am thinking Pierce Morgan was an intellectual host, but he has turned off probably 50% of his viewers, not just Christians, but those who appreciate an intellectual and yet exciting interview/discussion. Never had any high expectations for the show but still thought you were better than this: Pierce & CNN.

      Piers Morgan is not a journalist, he is a sensationalist. He should be working for the Enquirer or some other british pop star or Hollywood "newspaper" or TV show. He is not serious at all. He obviously tries to trap his guests into saying politically incorrect things to rise his ratings or have his viewers respond with passionate views. I didn't appreciate what he did to Kirk Cameron and I thought it was cowardly and unprofesional the way he quoted Kirk later with other guests and destroyed him.

    Piers is not professional journalist. Every time he invites a pastor he tries to twist every word out of their mouth and shows his aggression. To be honest, i don`t know how CNN allows this kind of behavior. Very disturbing.

    I might also like to state that most individuals who find themselves with out health insurance are usually students, self-employed and those that are jobless. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of Thirty-five. They do not feel they are wanting health insurance because they're young plus healthy. The income is often spent on real estate, food, as well as entertainment. Many people that do work either 100 % or part-time are not made available insurance by way of their jobs so they get along without with the rising valuation on health insurance in the United States. Thanks for the ideas you discuss through this website.

    Why is Piers Morgan so unkind, rude, abrupt, negative and disgruntled towards the Bible and people who follow it – if you don't like it Piers and you don't understand it, nor the people who follow it, perhaps you should stop talking about it and stop inviting guests onto your show if you can't treat them with dignity and respect – unless you do it for ratings which is really sad. Piers is the Bill O'Reilly of the left – both of them are bullies towards people who don't agree with their viewpoints and both of them contribute to the heaps of negativity in the world today – both of them need to go away.
