'Sound like Russia yet'
The country that continues to oppress and discriminate against gay people with the government leading the way?
The premise of this article seems to be that pastors will some day be forced to perform same-sex marriages. That presumption is a little paranoid. Substitute interracial marriage for gay marriage in that poll and the numbers will be a lot higher but guess what – no pastor has every been forced by the government of the United States to perform any wedding that they don’t want to perform.
Pastors, after all are able to turn down any heterosexual couple for any reason or for no reason at all. Countless lawsuits have been filed by angry heterosexual couples against churches and pastors and no judge has ever ruled against the church or pastor. The first amendment guarantees the free practice of religion.
This ruling does not give same-sex couples rights above and beyond heterosexual couples it simply gives them the same rights, with regards to marriage. No pastor will be forced to perform any marriage they don’t approve of. Even if 75% of the country thought clergy of any religion should be forced to perform same-sex marriages this isn’t a court anywhere in the country that will rule in favor of forcing them to do so.
No one is going to force any clergy to perform same sex marriages. End of story.
Giveme, you don't understand trends of liberalism and sin very well, do you?
To your "No one is going to force any clergy to perform same sex marriages" comment, all that I can say is, "yet."

Unreal, so say NAMBLA, pedophiles, child abusers, thieves, rapists, polygamists – you name it, they just want to be left alone.
And so we descend further and further into lawless anarchy.

Salt, your name absolutely is on your posts.
We “little people” may not be able to see it and tell who you are, but THEY can, and if THEY ever feel the “need,” THEY will.

I didn’t even know that there is a Facebook rainbow filter until I read this story – and I use Facebook regularly to stay in touch with family and friends.

Were any Mexican flags taken down and trashed?

They are jumping on the Sanders bandwagon like illegals jumping the fence. There isn’t any dirty on him (wink), and he can kick the messiah factor up another notch, don’t ya know.

If the low temperatures change the wavelengths of light, what happens when light travels through space? Can cold also affect the speed of light? Are “red dwarf” stars really red? Is our sun really yellow? Does this affect our understanding of distances between stars, the age of the universe, etc.?

I remember all too clearly the worshippers standing behind their “messiah” at the last two elections. Those didn’t end well either.

There is a major difference between individual Christians influencing politics and the Church controlling politics. Our founders understood the need for individuals to influence and the danger of the Church in dictating.
They also understood the danger if individuals didn’t have their personal freedom to stop an out-of-control government no matter who was in control.
Man will always have political problems until Christ Himself sets up His kingdom with a perfect government, but until then, I am glad that some godly men are willing to influence politics to make freedom better for us.
We’ve seen what governments controlled by the most God’s of men are like (Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, etc.) give us, and I would rather have Christian men like Washington involved.

Those doctors should counter-due for having a private conversation recorded without permission.
And that dude does need to man up and not get his poor widdle feelings hurt so easily.
And a half-mill jury award for that? Just buy him a Coke and a smile and be done with it.
He was present and the laws vary state to state if you need permission.
I too thought the half-million award was outrageous. What were the damages? You can get upset that someone said bad things about you, but you shouldn't get cash for it. Another jackpot jury.
According to his states recording laws he must have been within his rights to record or he would not have won the suit. Here in Georgia you only need 1 party consent and that party can be you as long as you are party to the conversation. However if his state has similar laws being he was sedated one could argue he was not party to the conversation.
Bringing a personal electronic device into an OR is a violation of most facility policies. A lot of medical equipment like EKG's are not shielded from electro-magnetic interference. This patient obviously set these doctors up. He will be lucky if he doesn't get counter sued.
It's not against the law to record conversations if those being recorded are 21 and older. That being said, I've worked with around many Doctors, and I can say there are a lot of them that are scum bags. Their job is to perform their services, not trash the Paitents. But guess what they do all the time. If this story really happened I'm glad he sued and won. Doctors are NOT Gods even though most think they are!
