I’d say Wright must be a Buddhist. He found his karma in a back alley one dark night in DC.

Off your meds again.
Shariah is only “fair” to muslim men and no others. Even then, its penalties date to the mid-600s. If all thieves had their hands cut off rather than prison, the whold world would be lefthanded. Prison, for some, offers a second chance.
Jewish and Christian values are better than Islamic values.

Looney left! They hate the police but beg to live in a police state!
Retired On Active Duty for you non-military types...
P3P8, she's a military chaplain.
TP...well aware, but, many here are not former or current military...just trying to help others out with an acronym...

Thanks Pappy :-) Most CIVPERS don’t know the difference. LOL But we do!

Whiners go to the Chaplain. That is one of the things we do — help them grow up and stop whining.

All of us military chaplains have masters degrees fm an accredited seminary. Many of us spend a fair amt of time learning pastoral counseling techniques equivalent to a masters in psychology at a secular university. Of my 90+ hours at the masters level at least 30 of them are in counseling.
So, bottom line, we are trained as counselors. What we may or may not have is a license fm a given state.

Terri — your analysis is flawed. First, the federal gov’t has to yield to states under Amendment 10 since the feds are not in charge of marriage. Secondly, the SCOTUS tossed out multiple state referenda as well as the current WH not defending the federal law defending monogamy. Thirdy, what prevents other marriage arrangements — polygamy, animals, siblings or close kin?
Finally — sanity check — shall we throw out 6000+ years of universal human history, culture, and civilization for a statistically insignificant number of people because they are louder than the rest? Not even Sparta, notorious for homosexual practice in the barracks, turned to SSM. There are no cultural examples of SSM until now. Ever wonder why?

The gaystapo singles out those who dissent for public humiliation and punishment.
There is a judge in Oregon whose staff refers couples to fellow judges who will perform homosexual unions. He is now under investigation.
Of course the judge could have allowed for bail if he wished. More, the journalist thing is no defense. She's not withholding state secrets or information that could save an innocent life, etc. Nope. This rises to pure political retribution and what amounts to religious persecution.
In a different climate in this country the judge is the one who would be on trial in the media and by the public right now.
Does the judge have the legal right. Of course. The moral right? This is what is in question, especially with so many examples of judicial leniency ongoing.

It takes special kind of stupid to equate Christianity w/the Taliban.
Taliban kills dissenters, stones adulterers – suspected or proved, beheads non-muslims, kills girls who go to school, kills girls for the sake of “family honor,” hates the Western tradition,
Christians may vocally offend sinners by pointing out sin, but we won’t chop off your head or blow you up. We’re funny like that.

“In God We Trust” is NOT endorsing any specific religion; it only makes a mild, generic faith statement.
