North Carolina Church Vows To Stop Marriages Until Same-Sex Couples Can Wed
A church in North Carolina will stop performing marriages until United Methodist pastors are allowed to officiate weddings for same-sex couples in the Tar Heel state.
The Green Street United Methodist Church in Winston-Salem made the announcement on its Facebook page on Friday and held a press conference on Sunday detailing its plan. The Rev. Kelly Carpenter told FoxNews.com on Monday that his 400-member congregation and its 18-member Leadership Council have long considered the move.
“Many people in our church have been very active about marriage equality in North Carolina, so we’re not new to talking about this issue,” Carpenter said.“So over the past year, this statement has developed, and not only to the state of North Carolina, but also to the United Methodist Church in regards to the injustice of not being able to conduct same-sex weddings.”

where did i claim that homosexual unions would produce anything..??
you need to read my posts through if you want to reply witout looking stoopier than you already are.
the basis of marraige was provided in my posts...
its called LOVE...
dont use derogatory terms like "fa&&ot"
it only cheapens your NON arguement.
how do you know im a "fa**ot" anyhow?
im just standing up for a group of folks that need it....
because you BIGOTS keep attacking their rights.
#184311 Mar 24, 2013
NO it doesnt.....
im citing scientific polling...
you are citing what???
the number was 23 percent in 1996, now the country is "OLDER"
and were up to 58%, pretty much destroying your unfounded hypothesis.
my "GAY" poll is from the washington post, not exactly a bastion of liberalism or homosexuality...but what do you know about newspapers?? not much.
you dont read stuff from them.
btw; you have no "RIGHTS" to deny people their civil liberties...
you know?? the ones YOU already enjoy.
try to cheer up about gay marraige being accepted.
they will be laughing at this era in the far distant future....
just like we tend to think of people in the FAR distance past as un-evolved......because when bigotry ran rapant.......this society WAS socially unevolved.

These statistics: "83 % of folks under thirty approve of same sex marraige.
and 58% of the population at large is now in favor of gay marriage.
up from just 23% in 1996" are not true, they are propaganda. As I have repeatedly pointed out. These "polls" that are quoted are simply carefully conducted screenings, using control groups to arrive at a predetermined result. We have not had a mass-mailing to all the households of America, so these "polls" are not real. The rights enumerated in the Constitution are simply in place to guard the citizenry against governmental transgressions, not to ensure that all of us can claim to be equal to each other. The governments job is not to pronounce Gays as minority class, but to manage the country (which, I might add, they are doing poorly). They are not here to make us be nice to each other, nor to make us accept all the changes that are occurring.

you claimed the state requires marriages to produce children.
you did it in the first sentence...
this is false....as the state requires NOTHING from a union between two adults.
#184314 Mar 24, 2013
We are not "attacking" their rights. They are asking for the granting of rights that they do not rate. There is no "Compelling Reason" to grant them the same status as heterosexual couples. Maybe compelling to them, but not to the majority of us. We are merely responding.
#184315 Mar 24, 2013
if you choose to ignore mainstream polls from the likes of "ABC news and the washington post??
mabey you could produce other information that backs up your claim that america is actually WAY more bigoted about gay marraige than ALL these recent mainstream polls suggest.
you dont have to accept anything......
but the rest of the society around you is on its way accepting gay marraige.
ps: let me guess?? you were railing against all those polls that complealt NAILED the results(state by state) of the 2012 presidential election.
you and mitt and rove were dead wrong...
#184316 Mar 24, 2013
there is no "RIGHT" to deny others their rights.....
that is why we dont vote on minorty rights...
why dont you look it up??
or are you like riccardo??
who wont venture out of the right wing media drome to use adult search engines to do adult like research...
#184318 Mar 24, 2013
we the people means everybody...
not just those who are accepted into your right wing, socially conservative world... you guys have some ideas about how society should look, the rest of us just dont share those.
the nation shapes itself, as the more enlighten folks among us can see.

You miss read it. Not surprised.
#184322 Mar 24, 2013
nope....it does happen.
such is the nature of love.
Im saying that actual relationships tend to appeal to pairs..
THERE ARE some REAL three way relationships.....
I wont comment on how strong they may be??
it could be very strong...
but their numbers tell a story....
that cohabitating pairs are much more common.
and "threesomes' are genrally are about recreation.
#184323 Mar 24, 2013
mislead by who??
nothing on the public record has shown that Bush even THINKS it was a bad idea...... he still spproves of the idea...... so how can you say he was mislead???
...... when HE doesnt even agree with you.????
those neo-con fools were planning to go into iraq, as soon as they found out iraq had the number 2 oil reserves on the planet.
it had very little to do with daddy!! or WMD, or spreading "freedom" to the middle east.

I just feel sorry for them, because the ENTIRE world is going the other way in SO many ways.
most of them dont realize just how much they owe to this capitalist society and all the socialist type infrastructure paid for, by progressive taxation on the rich(up to 90%)
most of them dont know what socialist, they actaully are!!
in truth?? AS SOON as anyone leaves their property, they are using socialism..

Bush wasn't misled, the Merican public was misled by the Bush Administration on People for a New American Century, Billie Krystal's little group, most of whom ended up in the Bush White House.
From Scooter setting up shop in the Pentagon/Defense Intel Agency to cherry picked raw data, delete caveats and disregard real intelligence analyized by experts.
To Dick Cheney personally speaking to Military Intel Analysts when he didn't like what they had to report
to the administration relying on "Curve-Ball" Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi wo the CIA said was unreliable, and Ahmed Chalabi a convicted fraud/embezzler who is now in Iran and apparently was working for the Iranians....
Wolfowitz, Perle, Rumnuts, Condoliar, Elliot Abrams, Kenneth Adelman, Richard V. Allen, John R. Bolton, Stephen Cambone, Seth Cropsey, Devon Gaffney Cross, Paula Dobriansky, Aaron Friedberg,Francis Fukuyama, Daniel Goure, Fred C. Ikle,
Zalmay Khalilzad (was appointed in December 2002 as the president's "special envoy and ambassador at large for free Iraqis." According to the White House announcement, Khalilzad would "serve as the focal point for contacts and coordination among free Iraqis for the U.S. government and for preparations for a post-Saddam Iraq." Khalilzad's qualifications include not only advocating Saddam's ouster since the 1980s, but also his proven prowess in orchestrating the installation of the Hamid Karzai regime in Afghanistan after being appointed special U.S. envoy to Afghanistan in December 2001.)
Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, John F. Lehman, etc etc etc
they all misled the American public, are responsible for an illegal war, the deaths of hunddreds of thousands, scores more wounded, ethnic cleasning, and the destruction of a nation...
THEY ARE ALL WAR CRIMINALS

judging on how recalcitrant the rethuglicans in congress have been to abolishing farm and oil subsidies??? I think they believe
corporate socialism is good.
socialism for little people .... is bad.
yet we both know which type of socialism gets funneled RIGHT back to the top 1 percent.......both of them...(hahahahaha)
