First of all, the college is responsible for protecting it's students with better security. Also, when will they pass a law restricting guns from liberals?! As a group they want tighter gun controls, yet it's always some liberal democrat type that goes and shoots up a place full of innocent people.
Definitely based off of my own experience going to pro life rallys. Much more Catholics there. Ones I've seen that have Catholica protesting abortion and the small crosses I've seen in front of Catholic Churches which are for a memorial to those millions of babies who have lost their lives to abortion. I don't see that at Protestant churches.
Kagielu wrote: john for Jesus. Which Jesus are you going for? The lion who is seeking whom he may devour? Land by the way, she was an elected official not hired. Also, last I checked she's upholding the constitution of her state because they have not changed to what was being forced down by this current federal law. Constitution is supposed to protect our rights, not create laws.
Which Jesus?! There is only one and Lucifer certainly isn't Him. I believe the Kentucky marriage law was ruled unconstitutional, therefore it doesn't apply. She is obligated to issue out "marriage" liscenses to whoever is supposed to get them. These are secular marriage liscenses. She is not in any way saying those marriages are Christian by issuing the liscense. Otherwise, nonbelievers, Hindus, Muslims, Mormons, etc would not get them either. That being said, I am very angry that she would be sent to prison over this.
Remember when churches just had a pastor, deacons, and maybe a worship director? What is a director of ministry development? Either way, I don't believe he should be one. This church will probably have a difficult time speaking out about adultery. As churches are going though, that isn't really a sin anyways and it isn't anybody's business to say so! Haha
I wouldn't object as much if he ran a business which made goods or service for profit. However, he is running a non-profit organization. People are giving to Samaritans Purse to help the needy and instead he is grabbing a bunch for himself.
John Yurich... I disagree that she is free to remarry. I don't ever see that in scripture. If she married anyone after a divorce, it is adultary. Also, I try to think like Daniel or Joshua. They were in godless countries, with godless rulers, and yet they also ruled and I assume, had to interact within those societies without sinning.
Is she the only Christian clerk who has to do this? I don't see how she can keep her job if she willfully chooses not to do it. Issuing a liscense doesn't make her like a pastor who performs a sinful gay union ceremony. I would think she should just do it because it is her job and she isn't doing anything wrong. She supposedly has been married 4 times, is she picking and choosing which of God's laws apply to get job?
There are biblical grounds for divorce. There are no biblical grounds for remarriage after a divorce. Jesus said to marry someone who has been divorced is adultery. Adulterers may still be believers and attend church, but they are to have no place in leadership. Pastors and deacons are only allowed one wife, ever.
It would perturb me if God reinstated the Confederacy and slavery. Ex sinners having been forgiven won't bother me, because that will be everyone who is there but Jesus. Though I find it hard to believe those men in charge of a rebellion against decency would be saved. Did they not have the Holy Spirit?! I do think the Civil War was about the wealthy who owned slaves because very few people actually owned other people. Even Southerners had the sense to know slavery was wrong and a lot of the ones who would have liked slaves couldn't afford them.
To say one state had the moral high ground on an issue doesn't make it perfect. We can agree on one thing then, that the Confederacy was as filthy rags to God and is long gone. So why in the world would a Christian support it's use by the state?
I know the United States isn't perfect, but it's the country God has placed me in and I can appreciate it's founding principles unlike the Confederacy's. The Union had the moral high ground because it wasn't trying to divide the country that God brought together and they wanted to put a stop to slavery. Ew, how immoral! Just because it was hard to do and many people died, and the Union prisoners were treated horribly by the Confederates, doesn't mean God didn't support the United States. When laws are made to support abortion, people that respect the Constitution understand that the laws are unconstitutional. When the Conderate States practiced slavery and rebellion, it was endorsed by their "government".
