THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DISMISSED. THE CONSTITUTION DOESN'T GIVE THEM THE AUTHORITY TO PRESIDE OVER ANYTHING TO DO WITH MARRIAGE.
Ok. Then you and those that think like you should organize to separate govt from church marriages.
Feel free to seek govt policy / law where... Want to get married in a church and NOT have that union recognized in ANY way by govt. ... Go for it. Fight for that.
Seek out policy that offers that when a cpuple gets married via a religious entity / church they do NOT receive ANY of the privileges / rights afforded committed couples UNLESS they separately petition the govt for such. So such privileges as: Healthcare decisions, property decisions, anything to do with possible children... ALL those govt recognized rights and privileged related to marriage will need to be separately petitioned for from govt.
I'm fine with that.
@zappa, or one could have a notary at the religious ceremony certifying a civil contract and powers of attorney. But other than that its something I agree with. Get government out of private lives.
Yep, this is more big-government nonsense. When government eff's something up, the solution is always MORE government in stead of LESS.
How about we just refer to it as MARRIAGE now...

She obviously knows what she did is wrong and is willing to accept the consequences. All she is saying is she doesn’t need to public to dog pile on her. I think that’s fair.
but what about her dog piling on miley cyrus not even a month ago?
What did she do wrong?
If you want your life to be private, and that privacy respected, don't put it out there by blogging, Facebooking or any other Socila Media. I love her Mom, but apparently she didn't ever explain the 'facts of life' to Bristol. I would like to know why she didn't marry the Medal of Honor winner. Not sure why being married before disqualified him, unless he is currently married. He obviously wasn't bothered by the fact that she had a child from a previous relationship. Again, if she wants her privacy respected, she needs to just go away quietly..
It is fair, but I have to wonder, why does this two-times single mother get a pass from conservatives but others don't? Some of you say the most horrible things about single mothers.
There is no wrong anymore... is there?? :o/
I agree and wouldn’t it be nice if those who are judging her would share that judgement with welfare broodmares across the country? The difference between Bristol and them is that they don’t care if they are or are not “doing something wrong.” It’s turned out to be a pretty nice money-maker for them. They don’t need to hound the baby daddies to support their kids. Uncle Sugar Daddy has got the taxpayers out here to do that. I would suspect that the majority of people on here who are trashing her are liberal hypocrites who gladly dole out money to support welfare mothers.

Ahcma… Mark doesn’t believe the audience is stupid… That’s like saying did you know the sky was blue?

This isn’t a political article you nitwits… Enjoy life outside of that world for a moment. Not that this article is actually joyful….
The kid was in total fear. Suck to be him in prison.
Way to rip scripture from context man. That passage has nothing to do with this story. You need to watch this video, so that perhaps you will stop spreading misinformation about God's word.
Perhaps if CAf didn't use the outdated/antiquated KJV, there would be better understanding.
"but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea."
That translation, which is CURRENT English (US) usage, gives a different light. Stumble. But the meaning is spiritual stumbling, not physical as in this Blaze story.
DUMP KJV ALREADY, people!
"The people of Samaria must bear the consequences of their guilt because they rebelled against their God. They will be killed by an invading army, their little ones dashed to death against the ground, their pregnant women ripped open by swords." Hosea 13:16 NLT

He didn’t get into bed with them Irish… read the article
Exactly! Don't call me a racist, but did anyone notice "black thug", other losers standing around but NOT helping the teacher. Folks, this is what this world is coming to. I'm sure home life is non existent? No Daddy, I'm sure too. Just sayin.........
Not necessarily but it is illegal for cops to also try to confiscate cell phones when your recording them but cops will break and literally kill you over cell phi e footage you have of them. Whether you are black or white!

Proverbs… Have you read Proverbs?

Unfortunately my x didn’t want to even try counseling. Sometimes people don’t want to be forced inti looking at themselves. Weird how long term misery can be chosen over the temporary discomfort of fixing ourselves.
You're right. It was wrong to call him/her a dolt. 'Idiot' would be a better word...

Anyone calling for vigilante justice is calling for chaos. No I’m not happy about what happened, but we will not win the hearts and minds of people if you resort to vigilante just, hate, or violence. Eye for an Eye is not the way. That’s a dangerous way to think.

She’s saying she doesn’t want to wear clothes that entice men… She didn’t say she’s going to wear a burka… Comments about comparing the two don’t make sense to me.

I personally don’t care about either team… I’m curious how you think that people who disagree with you are liberals though… this is football, lol.

People like to point out that side of history with Christians… They always forget to point out the protestant reformation and how Judeo / Christians beliefs are the reason why we have freedom of religion.

Nocommie, read the Bible (do your own homework)…
I think you’ll find it’s highly recommended that believes get together and worship together. Don’t use the idiocy of others as an excuse.

NE1, your people skills are lacking big time… You are pushing people away from God’s kingdom with your approach. I suggest working on it a bit more and staying quiet till you figure it out.
