    The Episcopal Church now allows Same-Sex Marriage in Church

    Episcopalians voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to allow religious weddings for same-sex couples, solidifying the church's embrace of gay rights that began more than a decade ago with the pioneering election of the first openly gay bishop.

    See folks, not all Christian denominations seem to feel their rights have been violated or that same-sex marriage destroys the sanctity of marriage.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Re: The Episcopal Church now allows Same-Sex Marriage in Church

    I grew up in the episcopal church. It's not really a church anyway, it's a social club.

    But when have they refused to do homosexual weddings? They've been doing them in my hometown even before it was legal in the state.

    The Catholics and Baptists will be thrilled.

    It wasn't a social club when I was growing up. Man I hated waking up early every Sunday to go to Sunday school for an hour, followed immediately by attendance of church services for at least an hour after when my folks showed up.

    Should have done what most of the younger male parishioners did at ours, bring along a beer or two and a pocket radio with those little plastic earpieces with you.

    Or you could have done what I did. Kept asking questions in Sunday school, non-stop, until they asked my Mom not to bring me. Got to go fishing on Sundays with my Dad.

    Oh yeah, I did try that...until my grandma provided some loving correction by connecting her hand to my posterior several times. Of course after Confirmation I only had to go to regular services.

    Read your Bible sirs

    Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. -Genesis 2:24

    They must be a pretty loose denomination if they cant even be bothered to read through the 1st book in the Bible

    God's church is not a democracy. God's Law is God's Law and not subject to human referendum.

    Gay marriage as a secular issue is fundamentally a different matter than it is to the church. While it may be ok for a government to allow gay marriage, a church doing so means it has lost its way.

    Then again, the Anglican Church has a rich history of bending the Bible to the needs of the state....

    The church will always conform to the world in the end. It always has, and it's demonstration that it's impotent and inferior to reality. It's a fantasy world, religion. But for the masses that can't accept the reality that you get about seventy years and then your gone, never to be heard of again and forgotten completely after a few generations, as though you never were, it provides a copping tool.
