Rick Warren, founding pastor of Saddleback Church, discussed same-sex marriage and his best-selling book The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For?, in an interview with co-hosts Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell live today, Nov. 27, 2012, on CBS THIS MORNING on the CBS Television Network (7:00 AM – 9:00 AM). Watch his appearance in full below!

Below is an excerpt from the interview:

ROSE: On Nov. 4, before the election, you posted on Facebook, "Why would anyone jobless today vote to maintain the status quo instead of change? Unemployment is still higher than four years ago." What are your thoughts on President Obama's reelection, would be my question to you. Were you saying to people at that time, if you are jobless today, the President has failed you and you should vote against him and you should vote for change in the presidency?

WARREN: Well, what I was saying was the old recovery mantra, to do the same thing over and over and over and expect different change is called insanity. We spent $2 billion on an election that nothing changed. Same Congress, same Senate, same President. So should we expect change? I'm not that sure.

ROSE: So therefore the reelection of President Obama was a good thing or a bad thing?

WARREN: Well, I don't ever get into politics, as you know, Charlie. I've always said I'm not right-wing or left-wing. I'm for the whole bird.

ROSE: But evidently, according to what we've just been talking about, God wanted President Obama, if he had a purpose for him, to be reelected. Do I follow that? What's the disconnect between those two thoughts?

WARREN: We don't know God's purpose in a lot of events. I was at the Notre Dame-USC game on Saturday night. People were praying for both sides to win. I don't think God has an opinion on that.
