Watchwoman on the Wall

Watchwoman: Read your Bible, my dear Christian friends.  Do not be alarmed!  Why this would bother any real Christian man and woman wanting to get married in the eyes of God, making a covenant for a lifetime of fidelity in marriage, is beyond me.  Let her refuse.  She shouldn’t be marrying anyone anyway.  First of all, there is no such thing as a woman pastor.  No woman should be ordained and is NOT ordained in God’s eyes.  She’s no more a pastor than I am a pastor.  So who cares?  Let her go on in her sinfulness and everyone should just ignore her, unless they are bringing her the message of salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Until she hears that message and gets saved, anything else anyone says to her falls on deaf ears anyway.  She’s incapable of understanding, it’s all foolishness to her and everyone else in that state.  [1 Corinthians 2:14] But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  I doubt seriously this is going to bother any true Christian man or woman because a real Christian wouldn’t belong to this apostate congregation.  ▬  Donna Calvin

LESBIAN PASTOR REFUSES TO WED STRAIGHTS UNTIL GAYS ALLOWED TO MARRY IN NC

Billy Hallowell

Pastor Nancy Petty, the lesbian spiritual leader at Pullen Memorial Baptist church in Raleigh, N.C., has a message for her state: Legalize same-sex marriage — or else. Until gay unions are legislatively permitted, Petty plans to no longer sign marriage licenses — an action that will potentially have a profound impact on her congregation.

At the end of July, Petty told her church body that until she state begins allowing gay couples to wed, she is uncomfortable performing nuptials. Apparently, she has asked church deacons to allow permission to be relieved of this duty until the matter is settled (i.e. until the state enables same-sex marriage). Though she claims that she’s enjoyed presiding over weddings, she says:

“every time I sign a marriage license for a heterosexual couple and act as an agent of the state, I am reminded of those couples who I marry that are denied the basic human right to legally marry the person of their choice.”

 

Star News Online further explains Petty’s decision:

She’ll do the religious blessing at Pullen, but she won’t sign a marriage license. If the congregation backs her up, anyone wanting a state-sanctioned marriage will need to see a magistrate first — most likely in the public safety building downtown, where brides in their gown must pass through a metal detector.

In addressing same-sex marriage, Petty said the following to her congregation:

“Do we, Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, want to continue to participate in offering religious ceremonies that carry with them civil and human rights that are not afforded to all people? Or will it be our practice and the practice of our ministers to honor all marriages equally by only offering religious ceremonies, thus not acting as agents of the state and perpetuating the unjust marriage laws of our state?”
