Nor was there a requirement of the florist to find sacred what the future spouses found sacred. Nothing was asked of the florist other than to do her job.

Wow. As always you have thinly veiled your response so as not to target who "those people" are. Could you elaborate please? Who are "those" people that are donating blood that have intentions other than to, oh, I don't know...donate blood. What exactly are these other "unpure" intentions specifically? How many unpure intentions are there for donating blood? 5? 100?

Please elaborate. I usually try and ignore posts that aren't specific to the topic of the thread, but you have me extremely curious as to the nefariousness of some sect of society I'm unfamiliar with. Who or what group exactly is wanting to donate blood with unpure intentions?

No, it isn't. The event was a wedding. Period. It's purpose was the same as every other wedding. There was nothing unique about the event.
Its purpose was to take one man and one woman and join them in holy and/or secular matrimony as husband and wife?
Again, because of the participants, not the event.(ps - I love that you know speak for this woman and know exactly what she would or wouldn't do.)
Or lack of a particular participant, the husband.
The event will ALWAYS be the same. There is only once event. It's called marriage. Your mythical "gay marriage" doesn't exist. It's a talking point. No one gets "gay married". Sorry.
Sure they do, a gay man marries a gay woman in a gay wedding.

And George wasn't chasing a scared teen Obama through the streets, either, after being expressly told not to by the police. Go figure. Who really "stood their ground"? The stalker, or the stalkee?
The issue isn't stalking, the jury found George innocent because of the evidence; only two wounds on Tray, bruised knuckles and a bullet wound but George's head was pounded against the pavement and his face was battered.

Tray probably attacked George out of homophobia, fear of rape. That's the testimony of Rachel Jeantel.

What method do you use on your coins?

"...offensive words....."? Why not just throw out, or give away only those bills with those words on them? Besides a big outdoors he man like your self who has braved lions, and tigers and bears....oh my....can't possibly be afraid of a few words on a piece of paper....you're not fooling us!

What don't you get about the cops telling him NOT to pursue him? The "kid" was in the neighborhood to visit his father and he had every right to do so! As much right to be there without getting stalked as the murderer did! The idiot should have listened to the police and stopped stalking him! Didn't he have the right to protect himself with some idiot stalking him? Any other state and the guy would be in prison for second degree murder! He should have followed the directions from the police and cease and desisted! Try again sport!
you are tweaking the facts to support your view of the situation.
1st no one told him "not to pursue him"
2nd there is no evidence that he was "pursuing him"
the dispatcher told him that "we don't need you to do that" when he explained that he was following him. following him to see where he was going to or what he was up to.
so;
3rd he was not stalking him. he was simply watching to see where he was going.
if tm had not hidden and simply kept on walking to the house of his father's girl friend gz probably would not have goten out of the car.
if tm had not ambushed him and broke his niose and beat his head against the pavement then gz probably would not have shot him.
if tm had not ambushed him.
do you have any evidence that conflicts with this?

haven't yet found a solution for the coins...

we have no lions or tigers in northern MN, and i and not afraid of the words, they are offensive to the nation we live in and anathema to the founding goals of our nation. so basically, when we were trying to prove we were a better form of governance than the Soviets, we shat on our founding principles...sad. very sad...

I think they were more "defensive"....again st the Godless commies.
and anathema to the founding goals of our nation.
How about "In Divine Providence We Trust"? George would've liked that.

We are.

I wouldn't go to that extent, but I do believe it shouldn't b on our currency. Not because it violates our founding principles, but rather its at odds with Christian teachings, not the words themselves, but their placement on currency.

no, you should go that far as it is in clear conflict with the secular nation we were founded to be...
