I wonder what the "criteria" are that must be met by the congregations.

Now in Mississippi, you can marry your boyfriend AND your cousin (or brother, as the case may be) at the same time !

(Shoes may be required at some weddings).

I don't think you can differentiate between God and what claims to be His church.

Wait, wait, wait ... did I read that correctly? Mississippi? MISSISSIPPI?! That state in the Deep South that everyone is always ridiculing as being backwards and behind the curve? Wow! This is a huge step, not only for the state and Episcopal Church, but as an indicator of where this issue is inevitably heading on a national basis.

You have no credentials that justify calling anyone homophobic; in fact, the AP Stylebook has recently relegated both homophobia and islamophobia to the editorial waste basket.

Aren't you supposed to be off somewhere leaving judgment up to God and doing unto others as you would have them unto you?

We all appreciate you pointing out the speck of dust on our eyelashes; now, about that sequoia tree sticking out of your left pupil ... shouldn't you be taking care of that first before you start throwing stones that may land in the wrong place?

Go su:ck your mommas DlCK and STFU Queer.
NoIQ, you definitely are my little b*tch and I do control you. Completely. You can't stop responding to me. Dance, little whore boy, dance! As I told you earlier on another thread:

Listen, you clueless little fruitfly, you are nothing but a pest that people in this forum manipulate for our own amusement. You don't hurt us, you don't offend us, you are simply a laughingstock. Maybe you haven't noticed, but WE CONTROL YOU. You have nothing better to do with your time than hang around us and try to be obnoxious, but you fail miserably.

In the meantime, we laugh behind your back. When we want to get you all riled up, we respond to your ridiculous tantrums. When we tire of you, we report you and get your posts erased. When we're really bored, we lay traps for you, as I did earlier ... and you never fail to walk right into them.

You wrack your useless little brain, trying to find a way to do harm. Listen, you silly jerk, we've been dealing with scum like you most of our lives. You think words like "faqqot" or "kweer" have the power to hurt us? You think "co:ck:sucker" is an insult? Hello, dummbutt, YOU'RE the one who is (supposedly) grossed out by the idea of fellatio ... NOT US. You don't have the power to hurt any of us.

Now you just run along and play with your nasty, deluded self. And when I want you, I'll lay another trap for you and tell you how high I want you to jump. NoQ, indeed. More like NoIQ. Now you have a nice day, chump.

Now, go suck your Daddy's DICK and STFU, Midol-breath.

By the way, I expect you to post again soon, GIRLY-BOY.
