Even though WorldNetDaily’s Lord Monckton wants Canadian-born Ted Cruz to be the next president, he still believes that President Obama is ineligible because he was secretly born outside of the US. The irony seems to be lost on Monckton.
In his latest column, Monckton demands that Obama be both impeached and put in jail for the supposed birthed scandal.
Boy, they just have a raging hard on for seeing a black guy in chains, don’t they?
The couple buys a marriage license, a recognized officiant signs it and it’s refiled with the local government. That’s a legal marriage, and in 14 states — with Illinois just the governor’s signature away from becoming the 15th — that’s a process open to both straight and gay couples.
Getting the church on board is a little more complicated. The issue of whether clergy should officiate same-sex marriages is dividing an increasing number of denominations.
Now, a retired Nashville bishop has become the latest to draw headlines on the issue — reversing course from a path that, four decades ago, had him playing a key role in sending the church down a path of resistance to change.
Despite warnings from his denomination that he’d be violating the faith’s Book of Discipline, Bishop Melvin Talbert traveled from Nashville to near Birmingham, Ala., to perform the Oct. 26 wedding of Joe Openshaw and Bobby Prince. They were legally married Sept. 3 in Washington, D.C., but wanted a church wedding. Openshaw said he specifically wanted Talbert to officiate since the bishop had spent years supporting Methodist gays and lesbians.
That wasn’t Talbert’s stance 40 years ago at the 1972 Methodist general conference, which adopted language saying homosexuality is incompatible with Christianity. His views changed several years later, when he was invited to a weekend seminar of gay and straight Methodists; participants could not reveal which they were until the end.
So, the Bishop’s views adapted to better fit the times. It’s almost as if he could have reached a moral conclusion even earlier if something hadn’t been standing in his way. What could have possible been preventing him from arriving at the conclusion that homosexuals are people deserving of humane respect like anyone else? Clearly, his morality shone through in the long run, but something purporting to be guiding his morality (when in fact it was blocking it) was holding him back. Can you solve this mystery?
How come atheists never say anything about Allah, Jah, Buddha, Zeus, Krishna, Yahweh, The Mayan Gods, or even the Ying and the Yang??? Always the Christian God. Believe what you believe but dont just pick one and exclude the rest, just because its easier to pick on one faith/religion.
They do, you’re just not listening.
