  1. Why would she be interested in rrmaining with her revoltingly bigotted cult.

    Yet another example of the poisonous, vicious, hateful intolerance of religion.

    If she gets fired from that cult then she will be much better off in the long run.

    Religion is a cancer on our society. The sooner people wake up to that fact the better.

    Marriage has NOTHING to do with religion.

    It is a civil contract that is state sanctioned. it is not sanctioned by superstitious cults.

  2. Yet more proof how religion discriminates and teaches dishonesty and intolerance to anybody else. Yet more proof that these out-dated groups need to be only ever read about in the history books along with the damage and suffering they have caused!

  3. It takes so long for some people to be weaned off their addiction to group religion, they will endure all kinds of indignity and abuse dished out in it’s name before they finally get the message that a religion/church exists entirely to serve itself.

  4. It’s people like Reverend Jane Adams Spahr who fight all the little battles that win the civil rights wars. I salute her for following her conscience even in the face of severe consequences.

  5. I agree with all the comments. Only religion would punish someone for making others happy. Religion is in the business of causing unimaginable unnecessary misery to hundreds of millions of innocent people around the world. Perhaps if she’d raped a few of them she would have met with more sympathy from the officials investigating. Such is the nature of religion.

  6. Religion’s all about power. It attempts to control and dictate by setting impossible/silly standards which we’ll all fail to meet, thereby ensuring the continuation of the Church to ‘save’ us.

    This church is turning something lovely into somthing horrible. Reminds me of that Blake quote:

    “As the catterpillar chooses the fairest leaves to lay her eggs on, so the priest lays his curse on the fairest joys”

    God forbid any of us should actually be happy.

    Good for her, I hope she wins. Her own church is restricting her right to practice her religious beliefs, which is an interesting position. The church hasn’t got a leg to stand on, thank God.

    We need more ministers like her, to show the church what they’re supposed to be doing.

  8. Bless her! tell them to stick their ministry where the sun don’t shine and join the Unitarian Church instead; they are friendly to everyone I believe!

  9. Guilty of abiding by the law?

  10. Yes, join the Unitarians or the Metropolitan Community Churches! Decent folk!
