Former Vice President Joe Biden Officiates Same-Sex Ceremony of DNC Staffer

Former Vice President Joe Biden officiated over his second same-sex ceremony on Saturday, this time between the finance chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and his partner.

Biden presided over the ceremony for Henry Muñoz III and Kyle Ferrari on Saturday, and a photograph of the occasion was posted online by Melanie Griffith.

“My dearest friends Henry Munoz and Kyle Ferrari were married today by VP Joe Biden. Wishing them everlasting love and a joyous life journey!” the actress, whose daughter Dakota Johnson stars in the controversial “50 Shades of Grey” film, wrote.

As previously reported, last August, Biden officiated another ceremony between two White House staffers at his Washington home. Brian Mosteller worked as director of Oval Office operations for Barack Obama, and Joe Mahsie served as a travel coordinator for Michelle Obama.

“Proud to marry Brian and Joe at my house. Couldn’t be happier, two longtime White House staffers, two great guys,” Biden wrote.

His wife, Jill, also Tweeted the photo after the ceremony, writing, “Love is love.”

Biden first publicly announced his support for same-sex “marriage” in 2012, just days before Barack Obama did likewise.

“I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying one another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties,” he said.

But CNN reported at that time that “Biden has, in the past, counseled the president against coming out for same-sex marriage.”

Biden, a Roman Catholic, attended numerous homosexual pride events at the White House throughout his tenure and once stated that he believes transgenderism is “the civil rights issue of our time.”

The Huffington Post reports that in March, Biden made statements critical of the Trump administration after the U.S. Department of Justice dropped a lawsuit filed by the previous attorney general that challenged North Carolina’s bathroom bill. The law at issue required those visiting government facilities to use the restroom that correlates with their birth sex.

“Instead of focusing on the fact that 40 percent of the homeless youth on the street are identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender [and] rejected by their families out on the street, and what do we do about that, we’re now focusing on whether or not a transgender child, which bathroom they can use,” Biden is reported as stating.

Jesus said in Mark 10:6-8, “But from the beginning of the Creation, God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh.”

1 Corinthians 11:9 also outlines that God made “woman for man,” and Proverbs 18:22 declares, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”

    Hey Joe! Confession is THAT way…..

  • InTheChurch

    the old bear got himself a young one. Congrats to the couple.
    The state recognizes you but not God.

    • TheLastHonestLawyer

      And they probably don’t care. But thank you for admitting that civil marriages are as real as religious ones.

      • InTheChurch

        They don’t care. But it’s not the same. couples that makes it to heaven and the couple that does not.

    • Colin Rafferty

      That is exactly the same as the progressive view. It’s about legal recognition because of all the legal benefits. Churches continue to set their own rules on marriage.

      • InTheChurch

        Yup, legal couples vs holy couples

        • Colin Rafferty

          Exactly!

          • InTheChurch

            Don’t get them confused and they can’t be both.

          • Colin Rafferty

            I don’t. Seriously, more people who see it as a mortal sin don’t see the distinction between legal and holy marriage. Where most proponents of it do understand the distinction.

            It really is refreshing.

            And yes, there are some proponents who want their own churches to change. But that’s not what the vast majority of people have been fighting for.

          • InTheChurch

            I have a gay co-worker and he laughs, but supports, at the idea of gay marriage. he is old school so he says he wants nothing to do with church, marriage and all these lawsuits. He wants to be left alone to enjoy his man and not be called h***, f** or any other name. I agree with him. The small group of supporters who want to make changes to the church are the ones make noise. The old schoolers want to be left alone.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            Nobody is demanding that any church change its policies. First of all, it’s pointless. Churches are private entities and have the explicit right to control their services. Also, there are plenty of churches that will marry same sex couples.

            Secondly, you don’t need a church to get legally married!

          • InTheChurch

            That is correct, churches do not make marriages legal, that is the state. They make marriages holy and approved by God, state can not do that. Moral vs legal, pick what your marriage is.
            Some churches are marrying couples. But, those churches are not Christ like or God fearing. They are secular so their marriages are not holy and approved by God, just approved by secular church. Waste of time.
            Not yet. Ben Shapiro has stated that the states are working on changing that through legal action, like tax exemption churches. it’s not happening today but the day will come.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            I do appreciate your use of the No True Scotsman fallacy.

            My marriage? It is loving, supportive, and solid. We’ve held each other through the good times and the bad, and since my stroke my wife has been the tower of strength I needed. We are nearing the point where our kids will be out of the house, and all we can do is shale our heads at the fact that they turned out so well (Well, the youngest appears to be determined to stay in his room for the next three years, but we’ll see.)

            We got married 26 years ago by a judge I knew at the county courthouse. Our reception was a small house party. It worked for us. Who are you to judge?

          • InTheChurch

            I never intended to offend you or your spouse, marriage. I used that term in a general way. It was never met to put you on the spot. I’m sorry for that.
            I am glad to see that you and your wife are going strong. And me and my wife are about to be empty nesters too. The third phase of our marriage; dating again and enjoying life. We did not get married in our church, farm wedding with our pastor doing the ceremony. We were prayed over and blessed by God. Your marriage is no different than mine.
            Now, if you have read the Bible, we can judge. We can judge our fellow Christians. This again, is not intended for you personally, but if a couple is labeling themselves Christian and are not practicing correctly, we can say something. I know many gay couple want nothing to do with church, that’s fine, and that is why I said, legal vs holy. it’s not the same thing.
            I have not asked you so I will now, are you a believer? to avoid future confusion and not look like an ASSuming.

    OK, I have to ask, Why does this matter to the story:

    “My dearest friends Henry Munoz and Kyle Ferrari were married today by VP Joe Biden. Wishing them everlasting love and a joyous life journey!” the actress, whose daughter Dakota Johnson stars in the controversial “50 Shades of Grey” film, wrote.

    Who cares what her daughter is starring in right now? Was Dakota even at the wedding? Editorially, why was this clunker of a sentence allowed through? It has nothing to do with the story at all.

    He’s a pagan Catholic, of course his is going to let the pervs pretend to play house like normal people….lol

    • Peter Leh

      pagan Catholic

      the difference?

      • yabruf

        Yeah I know it’s redundant, but most people think Catholics are Christian so I like to highlight the “pagan” aspect of their religion.

        • TheLastHonestLawyer

          Um, you realize that Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy were the *only* forms of Christianity for the first 1,400 years of the faith’s existence, right?

          Unless you follow one of those traditions, technically you’re a heretic to the church as established in the first century.

          • yabruf

            Lol let me guess your a Catholic?

            Well first you have to define Christianity and second you have to define the Catholic church which are two different belief systems.

            First 1400 yrs? You need a history lesson dude.

            The Catholic Church wasn’t created until around 313 AD by a pagan Roman Emperor Constantine for purely political reasons. Ever since then the pagans of the Catholic religion have hunted down, persecuted, tortured and killed all Christians who refuse to convert from Christianity to Catholicism.

            Even a cursory reading of the New Testament will reveal that the Catholic Church does not have its origin in the teachings of Jesus or His apostles.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            LOL! Uh, no. I spent my first 24 years of so as a Muslim. Since then I’ve been an atheist.

            I also have a degree in Classical History, with a focus on the Eastern Mediterranean. Which means that I know more religious history than you.

            Constantine created the Church? This will be news to the 35 Popes who sat in Rome before that. That’s counting a couple of antipopes, so let’s cut that number to 33.

            And the schisms between the Western and Eastern churches was largely without bloodshed. The Cathars? Considered themselves Catholic. You have to get to the European Wars of Religion to find real inter-Christian sectarian violence.

            Matthew 16:18 “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.”

            That was Simon Peter, who became the first Bishop of Rome, and the leading Bishop of the new church. The first Pope.

            Read some actual history. I’d suggest “Absolute Monarchs” by John Julius Norwich. A fascinating history of the men (and one alleged woman) who have held the Throne of Saint Peter.

          • yabruf

            Islam I’m sorry to hear that. That’s a tough cult to separate yourself from. The whole kill the infidel thing and the strong family ties combined with the convert or die doctrine of the pedophile mohammed must have really sucked for you as a kid.

            Oh and you don’t need a degree to read the Bible and research early church history on your own, you just need to be literate, I’m just saying (:
            Prior to Emperor Constantine the 33 popes, which were just men, bring us to St. Sylvester and the passage of the Edict of Milan. These men may or may not have all been Christian and the term pope definitely didn’t mean anything back then. Regardless of how many popes there were before Constantine, you assume that apostolic succession is biblical, which it isn’t.

            So unless you are a pagan catholic, which I’m not, the number of so called popes prior to Emperor Constantine forming the RCC doesn’t even matter.
            Now on to the formation of the RCC we know today. With the almost innumerable heresies, blasphemies, and outright contradictions in catholic doctrine, we can know that the origin of the Catholic Church is not in the teachings of Jesus and His apostles, as recorded in the New Testament.

            In 325 when Constantine called the Council of Nicea, he did this in an attempt to consolidate power in the church by uniting all of the infighting going on in-between the Christian sects whether they had a biblical foundation or not. So essentially you have a Roman pagan who is overseeing the formation of a pagan influenced catholic church, made up of who knows what kind of doctrine be it pagan or Christian, in an effort to retain control of the vast empire at the time. Yeah that’s authentic Christianity, give me a break!

            Cathars? Not sure why you even brought them up. Cathars were nothing but a pseudo-Christian cult that rejected the Catholic sacraments and that were actually persecuted by the RCC.
            And “inter-Christian sectarian violence.”? You’re going to have to be more specific than that. That could be any number of cults warring with other cults….lol

            Matthew 16:18 Yes this is Jesus speaking to Peter but this is meaningless in giving the Roman Catholic Church any authority.

            Peter being in Rome? -Not Biblical.

            Peter being supreme over the other apostles-Not Biblical.

            Peter the the “all authoritative leader” of the early Christian church-Not Biblical.

            Peter was not the first pope, and Peter did not start the Roman Catholic Church. The founding of the Catholic Church is not in the teachings of Peter or any other apostle.

            If Peter actually was the founder of the RCC it would be in agreement with Acts ch.2, and the books of 1st and 2nd Peter.

            You can call a pagan a Christian till you are blue in the face, but until you can back it up with scripture, at the end of the day it’s still just a pagan.
            Actual history? LoL Let me guess history books that you approve of and from sources that are aligned with your atheistic worldview. Uh no thanks. I will stick with the perfect word of God and all of the history books I can get my hands on 🙂

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            1.67 billion people worldwide is not a cult. It’s the second largest faith on Earth.

            Wow, more lies. No where in the Koran will you find convert or die. In fact it is made clear that there can be no compulsion in religion. Islam spread so rapidly because of many factors including that it wasn’t imposed like Christianity.

            The old pedophile slur? Really? How about this then?

            “When she was a scrawny 11-year-old, Sherry Johnson found out one day that she was about to be married to a 20-year-old member of her church who had raped her.”

            That’s from a New York Times story from last week. Sherry Johnson lives in Florida. The story is “11 Years Old, a Mom, and Pushed to Marry Her Rapist in Florida” if you want to search for it.

            As for my own deconversion, there were no fireworks, no scream of “apostate!” Just my parents realizing that my faith had waned.

            You can deny factual history all you like. But those 33 popes were the leaders of the early church, even in the days of Roman persecution.

            Constantine publicly embraced Christianity in 312 after the Battle of Milvan Bridge.

          • Oboehner

            LOL, only according to the RCC.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            No, according to history.

            But I’ll give you a chance. Please list the active Christian Churches in 1000CE, with cites.

            Here’s a hint: Martin Luther and his 99 thesis was a little later.

          • Oboehner

            Here’s a hint: Constantine and his infused paganism was a little later.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            So, you can’t answer?

            Constantine I 272-337, reigned as Emperor 306-337. How is he a little later than 1000CE?

          • Oboehner

            A little later than the beginning of the Christian church.

            Remember this bilge: “Um, you realize that Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy were the *only* forms of Christianity for the first 1,400 years of the faith’s existence, right?”

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            OK, name the others. I’ll accept any Christian church that existed before Henry VIII created the Church of England that was not a theological movement inside the larger church doctrine but rather a complete break from the older church hierarchy and traditions.

          • Oboehner

            The RCC is merely a twisted version of the Church founded by Christ – paganistic “traditions” and all. Martin Luther just discover some of the things other knew all along – for example works don’t get you to heaven.

          • TheLastHonestLawyer

            Ah, I see. So you’re saying that God was content to let millions go to Hell for His failure to give proper instructions?

        • Parodyx

          “Most people”. Yeah. The dictionary and history books think so too. Which puts you at a bit of a disadvantage.

          • yabruf

            The dictionary and man’s history books don’t define a Christian anymore then a cookbook or chiltons auto repair manual does silly one….lol

            The Bible is the only book that does. My family is Catholic and they will come right out and tell you they are a Catholic not Christian.

            Catholics depend on the church for their salvation and they won’t deny that. Christians however believe on Christ alone.
            Two different belief systems two separate doctrines. It’s not a pissing match between the two, its your choice whether you choose Catholicism or Christianity.

            What lost man writes in his history books and dictionaries has nothing to do with religious doctrine. The “most people” I was referring to are the ones like you who go to a dictionary to define a person of a particular faith….lol

          • Parodyx

            If you want to know a word’s definition, the dictionary is the tool you need. It is the last word on what a definition is, for precisely this reason – some disgruntled Christian’s been completely misinformed about what Catholicism is and has been taught to hate it to the point where they ACTUALLY fight against the dictionary. If you ever hit that point, you’ve officially become unreasonable.

            Catholics are trinitarian Christians, meaning they trust in God the father, son, and holy spirit. And if you still disagree, please tell me who that guy is on the cross in EVERY Catholic church.

          • yabruf

            Yes I believe it is your last word because apparently recent history is all that you accept….lol.

            Little do you know that the definition of words are continually changing over time and can have multiple different meanings across different cultures and regions.

            That long haired hippie hanging on the Catholic crosses is not Jesus. And even if it was that isn’t what Catholics put their faith in.
            The pagan Catholics require that you believe in the pagan church and Jesus for your salvation which is not the gospel.

            The gospel is quite clear and easy to understand but the pagans just don’t have it.

          • Parodyx

            Words do change over time, but it doesn’t matter what period in history you want to talk about, Catholics are always Christians according to the dictionary. And to mostly everyone else too, atheists included. It’s just a small handful of fundamentalists who seem to think they’re making a difference with their protest votes.

            Here’s a hint: Yes, the long haired guy hanging on the cross IS Jesus, and that’s who gets worshiped and counted on for salvation.

          • yabruf

            Ha ha so your using the standard and beliefs of atheists to prove your point now, getting a little desperate?

            Again the dictionary doesn’t define what a Christian is slow one the bible does. Your going to have to get over that hurdle if your going to be able to keep up with the conversation.

            The long haired hippie on the pagan Catholics cross is from the imaginations of the pagans and is not biblical no matter how much you want to believe it….lol

          • Parodyx

            Desperate, why? Atheists might not agree with Catholics but they’d never say anything as stupid as to claim they’re not Christians.

            Your Bible is not the tool for defining words. The dictionary does that, and it still proves you wrong. Incidentally, who IS that guy hanging on the cross in Catholic churches, if it’s not Jesus? Hmm?

          • yabruf

            “Atheists might not agree with Catholics but they’d never say anything as stupid as to claim they’re not Christians.” Ha Ha I don’t think I have heard a more ignorant statement regarding atheists in my life….lol

            I am supposed to trust the word of an unbelieving heathen atheist with regards to matters of doctrine? So you’re telling me that atheist can define the clear biblical teachings of the Bible and without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, somehow magically be able to tell me whether or not a person is a “Christian”. BWHA ha ha ha! You are clearly off your rocker!

            You really are out there aren’t you? I was hoping for a little common sense within the context of this conversation but I guess your all tapped out huh?

            Yes the Bible is the tool for defining words; and anything else is just an aid. Just like the Bibles absolute truths do not change over time, neither do words when read in context.

            Now as for the origins of the hippie that is being forever crucified on the pagans cross, I haven’t a clue where that came from because I am not a pagan. I have heard speculation that it was likely created after the pagan god Sarapis of the fourth century, which coincidentally appeared from the time of Constantine onwards.-Not Biblical

            It is also believed that choosing to depict Jesus with long hair was not a random act. They(pagan Catholics) choose to portray Christ this way because the male gods of the Greco-Roman pantheon almost always were depicted with long hair. –Again Not Biblical

            Personally I think the feminine looking long haired, blue-eyed European hippie in pagan Catholic paintings and crosses primarily originated from the renaissance period. Michelangelo first painted this effeminate portrait which was modeled after Cesare Borgia, who was the second son of
            so-called Pope Alexander VI, of Rome. –Yet again Not Biblical

            And we can know for sure that Jesus definitely did not have long hair. The Bible plainly teaches that it is a shame for a man to have long hair in: I Corinthians 11:14.

            Now that I have thoroughly schooled you, study up and come back when you have something other than your opinion to offer up. Preferably back by scripture….lol

          • Parodyx

            Find me an atheist who doesn’t know Catholics are Christians.
            This is totally idiotic. Go to any of the Catholic websites. They don’t say any of the conspiracy theory crap you are spouting. They say flat out what they are, which is trinitarian Christians. They were the original Christians for heaven’s sake, only the orthodox are as old as they are.

          • yabruf

            An atheist doesn’t even know what a Christian is!!! And your looking for one to help you defend a pagan religion that is opposed to Christianity?

            Wow your dense man…lol

            So guess what brainchild I can go to the Seventh-Day Adventist website, the Mormon website, the Christian science monitors website, the Church of Christ website and a hundred other sites that claim to be Christian as well!!!!
            But guess what they all have doctrine that is diametrically opposed to the clear gospel. Just like the pagan Catholic church.

            So since your are either too lazy to look this up on your own or you are lying about not knowing this easy to find doctrine here are some of the more obvious heresies of the Pagan Catholic church that have nothing to do with Christianity:
            -worship/adoration of Mary
            -the perpetual virginity of Mary
            -the assumption of Mary
            -Mary as co-redemptrix and mediatrix of the faith
            -petitioning saints in heaven for their prayers
            -apostolic succession
            -the ordinances of the church functioning as sacraments
            -infant baptism
            -confession of sin to a priest
            -purgatory
            -indulgences
            -the equal authority of church tradition and Scripture

            These are just a few of the many doctrinal differences that are founded in old Roman paganism, not Christianity. But the worst one of them all is the fact that the RCC rejects that grace through faith in Jesus alone will
            get you to heaven. That is just plain blasphemy.

            Tell me this, if I as a 40 yr old black man put on a blonde wig, lipstick, and high heels and declared myself to be an 18 year old white girl from OC would you believe me? I mean I got blonde hair, Im wearing heels, and lipstick and most convincing of all I have declared myself an 18 yr old white girl.

            With your logic and the Catholic church hey if they declare themselves christian and they meet a few of the requirements, even though everything else about them is a contradiction, they must be the real deal right???

            Get a clue man!

          • Parodyx

            Of course an atheist knows what a Christian is, that’s why he/she has elected not to BE one!

            I could go on and on about all the other stuff that’s been refuted a million times, about how Catholics don’t worship Mary but respect and venerate her, about how MOST Christians baptize infants because it’s not about ACTUAL sin but ORIGINAL sin and how the Bible says to confess sins to one another in the book of James but none of if will sink in. You aren’t saying anything I haven’t heard a million times and you guys never learn when you get schooled about it.

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            Everyone knows Protestants are encouraged to read from Tim LaHaye and Jack Chick for doctrine. They consider these authors infallible.

          • yabruf

            Good point. But remember protestants are just Catholic-lite.

            Many of them follow and perform the same heretical and blasphemous teaching of the mother whore church.

            I am a Christian yes, and anyone who does not put their full faith in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus is not a Christian.

            Its not a matter if they believe in what I believe. Its whether or not they believe the word of God.

            Its not anymore complicated then that. Try not to overthink it Trilemma, this is fundamental christian doctrine that anyone can comprehend.

          • Trilemma

            Catholics believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus so that makes them Christians.

          • yabruf

            Wrong. The problem with the Roman Catholic Church is its belief that faith alone in Christ is not sufficient for salvation.

            The official position of the Roman Catholic Church is that a person must:
            Believe in Jesus Christ AND
            Be baptized AND
            Receive the Eucharist along with the other sacraments AND
            Obey the decrees of the Roman Catholic Church AND
            Perform meritorious works AND
            Not die with any mortal sins AND
            Whatever else the wicked pope at the time can dream up at the time to be saved!

            This is most commonly known as a “works based salvation”. Needless to say you cant save yourself and if you put your faith in yourself and the works you do, sadly you will end up in hell along with every “pope” that has ever existed.

          • Trilemma

            You defined a Christian as someone who believes in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Catholics meet that definition. So now you’re changing your definition so you can say they aren’t, and you’ll keep changing your definition of what a Christian is until you’re the only True Christian in the world.

            You say that you are saved by faith alone. The Bible says:

            Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. – James 2:24 KJV

            According to the Bible, works are required for salvation and faith alone is not sufficient.

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            The majority of the world’s Christians are either Catholic or Orthodox.

          • yabruf

            Wrong the worlds Catholics/orthodox are not Christian and deny the Gospel like their church tells them to do. The ones that are or become Christian leave the RCC.

            Don’t confuse cultural Christianity with actual believers in the gospel of Christ.

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            Where do you learn these lies? Books? Tapes? Preachers?

          • yabruf

            They are called truths and its all found in the Bible. You should try reading it sometime.

            Here is a verse that applies to you:
            1 Corinthians 1:18
            For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            I’ve read the Bible in three languages and I’m more Catholic than ever.

          • yabruf

            Yeah I have unsaved relatives that have read it at least three times all in english and well you know the expression in one ear and out the other….

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            English is the WORST language in which to read Sacred Scripture!

          • yabruf

            Right well if your Greek, or Latin, or French I suppose you would get it in your language. But I am a lowly speaker of English and I will have to settle for the preserved perfect word of God in my KJV Bible….lol

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            I read the Bible in Italian and Spanish first. English is my third language.

            Now why do a few people consider the KJV “perfect?” English didn’t exist in Jesus’ day and you’re telling me God chose to reveal Himself sixteen centuries after Pentecost?

          • Joseph Vu

            Actually…. not in the context of this discussion, But I would have to say that Vietnamese is the worst. Why ? The Translation is so off……

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            Exactly.

          • yabruf

            Oh and it helps that I am an ex-catholic so I do have first hand experience in the RCC’s hypocrisy.

          • BuckeyePhysicist

            You’re a lapsed Catholic. Not “ex.”

          • yabruf

            Wrong word. You mean saved. As a Catholic I was dead and lost in my sin. As a believer in the gospel I am saved by his grace through my faith.
            No more vain contradictions of men hindering the beautiful simplicity of the gospel.

          • ZappaSaid88

            Look on the bright side. The US is demographically 47% Protestant. It is also 21% Catholic, 20% nones, 1.5% Mormon, 2% Jew, 2.5% Buddhist/Islam/Hindu, 2% Other, which = 48%. And that doesn’t include all the “liberal” Protestants that folks here also dismiss as un-Christian. So according to the posters here the US is not a majority Christian country. Huzzah!!

          • Parodyx

            I’m going to say the internet, and preachers.

          • Trilemma

            Yup.

        • james blue

          So the US is not a Christian nation?

          • yabruf

            Is that sarcasm?…..lol

          • james blue

            Sorry it’s not. If you disqualify Catholics as Christians and basically only include “born again” then Christianity loses its’ majority status.

          • yabruf

            Uh ok what “majority status” are you referring to? Let me remind you of some actual numbers with regards to Christianity and its influence in the lost world by the following verses:
            Matthew 7:13-14
            Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

            With the key word being “Few”, I can say that there are not nearly as many Christians in this world as you might like to think.

            Since you weren’t being sarcastic then no the US is definitely not a Christian nation. At one point it was but we are a shell of what we used to believe in and stand for in the past.

          • Parodyx

            Matthew 7:13-14 isn’t saying that “the narrow way” means that you get to call the people who were practicing Christianity for nearly 2000 years, namely the Catholics and Orthodox Christians, false while calling your 30 year old cult the real deal.

    • Parodyx

      Catholics are Christians, not pagans. Please let me know if I can correct your thinking in the future.

      • yabruf

        Yes to an unsaved person like yourself who doesn’t even know what a Christian is , I understand why you think that.
        Your holy books are Webster’s dictionary and Wikipedia…..lol

        Catholics are pagans and Christian’s are Christians, Apple’s and oranges….lol

        • Parodyx

          There is almost nobody who would make the statement that Catholics are not Christians. Most Christians and people of other faiths and atheists disagree with you. That’s an overwhelming majority that thinks you’re wrong.

          • yabruf

            Well I’m sure that’s true in your bubble…lol

            Unfortunately for you the Bible and all Christians disagree with you…lol

          • Parodyx

            Ah, the smell of the No True Scotsman Fallacy. Always so rank and hateful.

  • Peter Leh

    You dont need God’s approval to be protected by the constitution.

    Lest we go back to “the good ole days” when we did need “God’s” (IE the church) approval?

    • Malleus

      Churches have never excluded women, foreigners, or blacks. In all churches, women outnumber men.

      See if you can make your point without lying.

      • Peter Leh

        Hmm… Salem?

        the SBC?

        • Malleus

          SBC excludes women? Ever been to one? Women outnumber men there, as in all churches.

          You really must be a mental case. You have obviously never set foot in a church. Not one church anywhere on earth excludes women. Men are in the minority in churches.

          Get medication.

          • Peter Leh

            Medication? How about a history book?

          • Malleus

            Sure, find me a history book that talks about how the church excluded women.

            You won’t find it, because it never happened.

            You must have that dementia from HIV.

      • Trilemma

        Many churches exclude women from various leadership roles. The Mormon church used to exclude blacks from the priesthood.

        • Malleus

          Well, MOST church members are not leaders. That’s not “exclusion.” You people are so dense. You think every guy who joins the army becomes a commanding general? What cretins.

          • Trilemma

            How many guys who join the army are told they can never be a general no matter what they do?

          • yabruf

            You have obviously never served in the military. How many? Most!….lol

          • Trilemma

            “Most!” But not all. And even if most are told they can never be a general no matter what doesn’t mean it’s true. It may be unlikely but not impossible.

            In some churches all women are told that they will never be able to serve as a deacon, elder or pastor regardless of their ability. It’s not unlikely. It’s impossible.

          • yabruf

            Ok whats your point again? Women are forbidden to hold those positions because its scripture and most churches are formed based on scripture……lol

            I mean go form a church that inst biblical if you don’t like it. But just don’t lie and call it Christian cause its not.

          • Trilemma

            Malleus said the church has never excluded women. My point is that it does. Even if you believe it’s biblical, it’s still exclusion.

  • Oboehner

    You can clearly see which one is the female role.

    • Parodyx

      “Roles.”
