Anyone Can Blog ~ Commenting Is Hard
I’d say something like “remember how they promised that …” but we all know you can’t shame the shameless.
The time is ripe for revolution
I’d have expected it in Mass or Cali, not ID.
I think the city is gonna get told to pound sand…
I’m deeply amused by the masses who criticize this story by saying, “they may be ordained ministers who face government coercion to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs, but the Hitchin’ Post is a FOR PROFIT BUSINESS!!!” as though that makes the violation of First Amendment rights any less offensive.
Most clergy in the country receive some kind of payment for their work.
And, of course, when the next logical step in the war on Christianity comes, the same defenders will explain again how government intrusion into religion isn’t really government intrusion into religion. And once again, I won’t remind them of their past words, because you can’t shame the shameless.
NO ONE WHO RUNS A FOR PROFIT BUSINESS HAS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS!
Churches don’t perform wedding sermons.
Ministers all take money for this, many through voluntary donations but some through set amounts.
Wedding chapels run by ministers have always exercised the right of the minister to refrain from marrying any particular couple.
Ministers often sit down with each of the couple then decide if they can marry the two.
With gay couples the answer might always be ”no” for some ministers.
Can you imagine the sermon a minister might give were he forced to marry such a couple against all he knows is in his Holy Book?
Galatians 5:19-21 read at every ceremony.
