Rush: Churches could be forced to marry gays

If the U.S. Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriages across America, then churches could be forced to perform homosexual weddings, even if they oppose the idea on religious grounds.

That’s according to radio host Rush Limbaugh, who thinks there’s a good chance of it happening.

“The Catholic Church can be forced to give away abortifacients and birth-control pills. Why can’t the Church be forced to marry gay couples who want the sacrament? Any church,” Limbaugh said on his top-rated program Wednesday afternoon.

“I think it’s a pretty safe bet that that kind of thing will happen. Among militant leftists, attacking organized religion is part of the political agenda, whether gay or not.” ...

The burden of proof belongs to you

Im not restricting God from saving his Elect under ANY circumstances.

I did wonder how long the civility would last, and I was not disappointed!

Actually you are the one who came on these forums proclaiming a wondrous "new truth". So the burden is very much on you to prove your claims.

Sure, try and broaden the way because you find it too narrow. God will save his elect BUT by means.

God could work in any way he chooses. BUT, the big problem you have is that he has told us exactly how he chooses to work - the foolishness of preaching, and specifically doctrines that are called "the gospel".

Just a tiny detail, but a BIG FLY in your ointment.

These exchanges are useful to discover exactly how tenuous your hold is of biblical revelation and how in reality you loathe the teachings of the bible.

Your poor imitation of Protestanism is as thin as India paper and guess what? We can all see right through you!

You are but a devil come as an angel of light. May the Lord rebuke you and lay waste all your dastardly plans. So will my prayer be every time I see your name.

Thanks for your reply to my question from the other thread.

I agree with your reply as written, however, God uses means to save. From your exchange with "Open reach" I gather you are admitting that God's means to salvation are only present in the RCC teachings (your allusion, not mine, btw) if one remains ignorant to, or rejects the unscriptural parts of their teachings such as baptismal regeneration in the Nicene creed, justification by faith plus works and prevenient grace innate to all mankind. Kind of like JY's smorgasbord approach to his version of Christianity. And this can go on for a lifetime for a member of the RCC, with no pricks of the heart and be pleasing to God.... well done thy good and faithful servant? Do you suppose this is how God intended church?

Anyway, I'm going to defer to "Open reach". Have a blessed day.

After this exercise, the next problem you have to address from the verses you quoted from Corinthians, is that the Lord specifically says that he chose the ****foolishness of preaching to save**** viz. the preaching of the gospel.
So where do you find the preachers in the RCC who preach the gospel?
We'll come back to this too a little later.

The burden of proof belongs to you not me, as Im not restricting God from saving his Elect under ANY circumstances.

You behave as a jealous pharisee or devil, accusing Gods Elect day & night looking for some reason that they should not be saved.

457 The Word became flesh for us in order to save us by reconciling us with God, who “loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins”: “the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world,” and “he was revealed to take away sins

&

601 The Scriptures had foretold this divine plan of salvation through the putting to death of “the righteous one, my Servant” as a mystery of universal redemption, that is, as the ransom that would free men from the slavery of sin.397 Citing a confession of faith that he himself had “received,” St. Paul professes that “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures.”398 In particular Jesus’ redemptive death fulfills Isaiah’s prophecy of the suffering Servant.399 Indeed Jesus himself explained the meaning of his life and death in the light of God’s suffering Servant."

Again, its NOT required they understand all these things. However, God can reach their hearts through these themes together with Scripture readings(Yes, they read Scripture every Sunday at Mass).

To believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God... 1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe...

Whether you have this precious faith is open to question!

Why did you stop at faith? Why not faith 'alone'? Is this to accommodate your RCC leanings?

Nice side step.
Okay let's ask the question in a different form.
Do you believe that justification is through grace alone by faith alone through the merits of Christ alone? If so, what truths does Romanism teach that is capable of converting any soul, assuming that you believe what the Bible teaches, that there is a body of doctrine known as the 'gospel' which has to be believed to be saved? This body of doctrine includes facts like our alienation from God, the sinfulness of sin, the wrath of God, the need for an atonement, the substitutionary nature of this atonement, what conversion is, what faith is it that leads to this radical change of nature etc.

My surprise was your use of the term 'solomon test' in this subject of of Biblical Marriage. Solomon was turned away from God as a result of his polygamy and his Kingdom DIVIDED(See the foreshadow in divided?) into Israel & Judah after his passing.

1 Kings 11:6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, ...11:8 And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods. 1 Kings 11:9 And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,
... 1 Kings 11:11 Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon,...I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.
1 Kings 11:12 Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father's sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.
Todays Church HAS followed Solomon

HI pilgrim. Have you ever wondered whether feeding fertile imaginations as what appears to happen on this site - is of the HOLY SPIRIT?

The loaded extremely trivial theological questions posted by your friends really gives you all away as lacking Spirit.

SteveR -- the true parent was willing to lose the baby rather than have Solomon divide him up between the two "mothers".
the true leader (parent in the illustration) of Christ would rather lose their institution or position of power than to affront the gospel they have been entrusted with.
the false prophet would save the institution or power even if at the expense or compromise of the gospel.
we want to see our institutions flourish but not at the expense of the gospel and by the Holy Spirit, not the Babylonian spirit. Hope this makes sense.
