If churches weren't "untouchable" in the USA I could see that as an outcome.
Perhaps a grassroots effort to disclose how much "religion" is costing the public in lost tax revenue would change a lot of people's minds.
Agreed.

What people seem to forget, mainly because it's barely mentioned in the Bible, is that when He died, He spent three days in hell, suffering the worst punishments for everyone else's sins, so that we could join Him in heaven later on.
It was barely mentioned so we can fill in the blanks ourselves?
So more sadomasochistic torture?
Was he also sexually abused this time?

Also, you people that don't believe, good for you. Now take your pessimistic asses somewhere else and stop pissing on people's religions. Get a job. Get a hobby. Move out of your Mother's basement. Level up in World of Warcraft, or whatever you people do. We don't press our religions on you all, so don't crap on what we believe in and live by.
You mean your are an optimist like Jesus:
M a t t h e w 1 0
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to
death, and the father the child: and the children
shall rise up against [their] parents, and cause
them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name’s
sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be
saved.
.
L u k e 1 4
26 If any [man] come to me, and hate not his father,
and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren,
and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot
be my disciple.
The fantasy god is so pessimistic about life on earth he only offers escape in the afterlife. It is for people who lost all hope.

So, you still take Paul's word over Jesus.
That is Christianity in a nut shell.
The whole premise of Christianity has been to get around things that Jesus clearly stated.
I believe that if the NT contained only the four Gospels there would be few Christians.
I don't know if you said that Jesus said to drink the poison or not. But Jesus did not say to drink the poison.
And while I am at it, could we start with one of the things Paul taught that contradicts what Jesus taught. I would like to address them. I keep hearing about them but have yet to see any. Out of respect, I think someone who disagrees with you, should at least address what ever it is they disagree with. I don't believe what Paul taught contradicts what Jesus taught.
The issue with the word El, I will have to get back to you on. I could spew something out, but neither you nor I would accept that type of answer.

Is there an CURRENT law that requires churches to marry people?
Keep in mind, this question is about CURRENT law, no maybes or what if's.
Current law is in transition right now. This most recent ruling by the Supreme Court has just initiated the falling domino like chain of events that will be brought forward in court cases/appeals.

It'll be interesting to see where it ends up.

Hey it's your delusion, Mark.
Seek help.
No RR
I simply want you to show me the signs that accompany the true believer.
5 He said to them,“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
Drink the deadly poison and do not be scared, the fantasy god says it will not hurt you.

All you need is belief RR.
And you will be saved by faith alone
now put your money where your mouth is!

Well...I guess that you are talking about me too. In the last two cities that I have lived in the main mode of transportation has been public transportation. With the amount of traffic and the cost of parking it actually makes more sense to ride the bus.
In DC you can ride the bus or even walk faster than you can drive a car...at a much cheaper rate.
The monthly rate for parking in some cities can far exceed $300 dollars a month...you can take the bus or train to work for far less.

Are you referring to sexual positions???
Even in the heterosexual world many couples prefer entry from behind.
Did you know?
The term "missionary position" came about (though some think this is a myth) in response to Christian missionaries, who taught that the position was the only correct way to engage in sexual intercourse.
Tuscans call this position "The Angelic Position" while some Arabic-speaking groups call it "the manner of serpents" (whatever that means).
The missionary position has several names, including "the matrimonial", "the Mama-Papa position", "the English-American position", and "the male superior position".
Interesting subject if you think about it...what makes people prefer certain positions over others. What compromises couples make when they both prefer different positions and how they deal with that.
Deflected with class. I give you full marks, Annie.

My post was relating to RR's use of Corinthians to counter an opinion relating to Mark.

For myself, I discount Mark 16:9-20 as a fraudulent addition so I have no dog in that fight.

The arguement was that Jesus says "if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them." among other signs and wonders.

In Corinthians, Paul asserts that the time of signs and wonders are over.

What Paul used was the age old answer to "Why aren't there any miracles now ?", Even the Jews use this cop out.
One of the reasons Jesus was not accepted even as a prophet was that Judaism declared centuries before that the "Age of Prophets" was over.

So then your answer is no, there is no current law forcing any church to marry anyone.

Why would that change?

No, churches won't be obligated to marry gays/lesbians. The effect of today's DOMA decision is just that same-sex married couples (as of now, married homosexuals in 12 states) can no longer be denied federal benefits. The DOMA decision does not hold that homosexuals have a federal constitutional right to marriage.
I'm glad it's gone, anyway. You have to admit there's something ironic about Bill Clinton defending marriage...in the first place.
