    Just found this and thought you might be interested.

    Ordination Online: Become a Minister, Officiate Weddings and More. Women Welcome

    Seems as if becoming "ordained" as a minister/pastor is as easy as paying a fee. Nothing else is required. And you CAN start your own church/denomination, gaining tax exempt status. Interesting stuff.

    Seemed like an interesting issue. Found some cool stuff about it, too. Perhaps I will start my own ministry. I'll call it "The Church of the Courteous".

    You seem to be one of those who believe that Muslims tend to be criminally insane and any spark might set them off.

    I agree to a point, and recent history bears that out, but that does not mean we have to withhold our opinions because Muslims tend to seriously overreact to otherwise minor situations.

    A better idea, I believe, is not to succumb to their intimidations but to strike back hard whenever they behave abnormally.

    And, by the way, wishing an innocent person dead is also abnormal. Careful you don't go all Jihady on anyone.

    How far does the placating or butt smooching of nut jobs go to?

    Would you accuse ministers of having blood on their hands if racists murdered people
    because those ministers performed interracial weddings?

    Would you accuse science teachers of having blood on their hands if a religious group started murdering people because science teachers were teaching the theory of evolution?

    Would you accuse a sports team of having blood on their hands if nut job started murdering people because that sports team lost their championship game?

    Would you accuse a video game company of having blood on their hands if die hard world of Nerd Craft fans started killing people because that video game company decided that they did not want to make any more sequels to World of Nerd Craft?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Another analogy is claiming rape is permissible because a woman was wearing her skirt too high, didn't have her face covered , or wore high heels. The women in these cases are also said to be at fault, not the rapists.

    Oddly enough this argument was used successfully in an Australian court a few years ago and the rapists, unless it was appealed, went free.

    No need to mention their religion.

    It can be pretty variable. But even the church of the subgenius can ordain you as a minister

    You got all that by my post? Listen here don't you ever assume what I think about anybody or any group because you do not know me like that.

    Our gov told this redneck country ass pastor not to do what he did and he did it anyways and folks DIED because of HIM! Not that hard to understand.

    You are reaching. This Pastor is an idiot racist ass that is getting the heat he deserves. And why is everybody ignoring the fact that he was warned by our GOV to not do this? He put our troops at risk with his nonsense. Talk about what is important instead of trying to excuse this dumbass fools actions. How in the hell can any of you sit here and try to defend this man?
