  1. Taking one day at a time

  2. Legal, legal for what ? you can preach, you can do funerals, baptise people , start a worship service and everything a preacher does everywhere except for weddings. Weddings is a government license that they control. And what church can or can't do weddings is a government issue, in the US a state issue
  3. There is a issue, I know here in GA even with a carry permit you are not allowed to carry a gun on to church property, ( simular to school property) ** I understand they were trying to change that last year. And not sure why you want to keep the guns on "church" property, do you think that gives them some extra level of protection ??? But a felon can not even be with access to a gun. if for example a felons wife wanted to own one, it would have to be locked away in the house away from the felon so if you had one just laying around where the felon was within reach of it, it could make them in violation But if they have one in thier hands, even if unloaded, it is a crime. I have a family member who had a unloaded ( and it was rusted shut so you could not load it) and it was hanging on the wall. The local police turned it over to the Feds, and he is now doing five years for that gun on the wall
  4. yes, and "attaching" a business to your church may very well cause many problems unless it is church related. Also non related business for profit even if owned by a church can still be taxable. And if you take any money from it, you will owe money persoally since you are taking it as income.
  5. It is the duty and obligation of the minister to return them. No they are not to do it,
  6. Many minsters do a basic service, there are the Universalists that will do a very non anything service, or one according to your more specific beliefs. Or you merely have friends and family members go up and lie about how much they loved you and so on. ** joking about the lie of course.
  7. The issue I see is the religious reason, your church and it has to be a church reconised as such by the state, each state has its requirements, some require regular meetings and other requirements. It normally has to be part of the doctrine of that group. So if you have a group, and they teach this as such, then you should be covered, if this is merely a personal desire not to, and you wish to pretend it to be religious then it is another issue.
  8. sorry with a arrest warrant, or with a search warrant, the police may enter any place, including a church. At times because of news value or political interest they don't when it comes to illegals in large churches but in general unless you have the backing of a large denomination with denomination attorneys I would not try and stop the police.
  9. As long as the company restricts ALL other religious symbols and religious attire. They can not restrict your religious collar if they also allow religious clothing from other religions. But they can have a policy that will not allow religious clothing or embelms. This is common, I have worked at places where you could not wear crosses or other items
  10. You can use it, when you call yourself, introduce yourself and for any purpose as long as there is no fraud involved. But a religious name is not and does not take place legally in the US of your real name ( unless you want to go to court and do a legal name change) But you can use it as a business name, ie most movie stars, Little Richie is not a real name But for the POPE, I am sure he has someone else that signs the checks
  11. I have been there though a few and they are not for the faint hearted. It is not for anyone not fully prepared
  12. Love my AARP card, love my senior drinks and meals when eating out. And as for as discounts it will vary by company. Most if I just show my AARP card give me mine.
  13. I often allow the couple to write thier own vows. Normally they pick out what songs they want done, Both the Star Book for Ministers and the Commom Book of Prayer have some very popular wedding services.
  14. Of course this is the type of headlines they want, enough to make you go see what it is all about. I have heard it is going to be a great action film. And of course since the book it is based on is fiction, and the money is fiction, and no one has even seen it yet, alot of yahoo over nothing
  15. Haven't seen it, don't plan to see it. Every Pastor I know recommends NOT seeing it, because supposedly it's about gay cowboys. Ummm......Yeah.......It is about gay cowboys........But it's more than that. It's not some sort of documentary on the lives of gay cowboys or something. It's a dramatic film, a movie, you know, a story? So what if there are gay characters? Would you stop coming into this forum if there were gay people here? I though it was sheep herders, not cowboys ( from the reviews)
