Canadian Mennonites Officiate First Same-Sex ‘Wedding’

By Heather Clark SASKATOON, Canada – Two Mennonite ministers in Canada have officiated the denomination’s first same-sex “wedding,” holding the service publicly in a “church” building in Saskatchewan. Anita Retzlaff and Patrick Preheim of Nutana Park Mennonite Church officiated the ceremony for Craig Friesen and Matt Weins on Dec. 31, which was held at Osler Mennonite, the childhood congregation of Friesen. “For us, a wedding is supposed to be a celebration of our commitment to each other in front of our faith communities, our other communities and God,” Friesen told CBC News. “It wouldn’t feel right if we didn’t get married in the Mennonite church.” “Having these examples that someone doesn’t have to choose between their religion and who they’re attracted to, I think that’s important,” Wiens added. The Mennonite Church in Canada officially opposes same-sex nuptials, but last year, leadership announced that it would allow each congregation to believe as they wish on the subject in order to keep congregations from leaving the denomination. According to reports, Nutana Park Mennonite began discussing the issue of homosexuality 15 years ago, when some who were involved in the lifestyle urged the congregation to be more accepting. A group was soon formed on how ministers would respond to the issue. We …read more Source:: Christian News Network       ...

Atheists Seek to Dissuade Congress From Taking Oath on Bible

By Heather Clark WASHINGTON – An atheist organization is seeking to dissuade new members of Congress from taking their oath on the Bible when they are sworn into office today. “On January 6, Congress will take the ceremonial oath of office, during which each member will solemnly swear, or affirm, that he or she will ‘support and defend the Constitution of the United States.’ While members are not required to swear or affirm on a specific text, or any at all, many choose to swear on the Bible,” the Secular Coalition of America recently outlined to supporters. “This year, the Secular Coalition will seek to remind Congress that it was elected to support and defend the Constitution, not the Bible or any other religious text,” it continued. “We will be circulating letters on the Hill and lobbying in person to get as many members of Congress as we can to take the oath on the Constitution.” It is not known whether any of the recipients of the letter will actually heed the group’s request. As previously reported, in 2012, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) did the same prior to the inauguration of Barack Obama, also requesting that he eliminate the phrase “So help me …read more Source:: Christian News Network       ...

Archaeologists May Have Found Site of Jesus’ Trial Before Herod

By Heather Clark JERUSALEM – Archaeologists in Israel believe that they have located the site of Jesus’ trial in Jerusalem after 15 years of digging underneath a prison in the country. According to reports, the location was adjacent to the Tower of David museum in Jerusalem, under the floor of a building that had been abandoned. Almost two decades ago, researchers began exploring under the building, which once served as a prison when the area was under Turkish and British rule. They found what they believe are the remains of a palace. Now, after years of digging, archaeologists believe that the location is actually King Herod’s palace—where Jesus stood trial before being crucified. Luke 23 explains that as Jesus stood before Pilate, He was sent to Herod as it was learned that Jesus was from Galilee, which was under Herod’s jurisdiction. “And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time,” it reads. “And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad, for he was desirous to see Him of a long season, because he had heard many things of Him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by …read more Source:: Christian News Network       ...
