In Topic: Greece gonna Greece

Today, 07:57 AM

This very well could cascade.  As part of the post-2008 "reforms" of bank capital requirements, the ECB designated that gov't debt was the equivalent of cash on a bank balance sheet.  So basically every bank in the EU loaded up on high interest gov't debt, like Greek, Italian, etc etc.

That's why the Euros are doing everything they can to get Greece to pay up.  If they don't there's a high probability that it could take down two dozen or more major banks, sparking an even bigger crisis that 2008.

Some very smart men have said that the second stage of any financial crisis is a sovereign debt crisis and I think we're rapidly approaching that point...

No. And you guys have really, really :lanekiffin:ed up views on how gay people are. Why would they choose to get married by someone who is so vehemently against it?

I'm not saying they would. It's a philosophical question. Now why does the minister get more protection than any other business owner?

a county clerk is handed a marriage application from a gay couple. Gay marriage is legal. Should the clerk be able to refuse to issue/sign the license, or should the clerk issue the license as normal or be fired?

The latter.  The gov't is the entity issuing the license.  The clerk is just doing the job they've signed on for as directed by their employer, the gov't.  If you can't handle the requirements of your job you should find another...

@ cocky4ever   Better example.  If an ordained minister has a business performing wedding ceremonies, should the gov't be able to force them to marry a gay couple.

If the answer is yes, how do you reconcile that with free excercise.  If the answer is no, why should a minister get more room to do as their concience dictates than anyone else.

@JoeGator  not in my reading of it....Christ dines with prostitutes and tax collectors because and I'm paraphrasing, the sick need doctors, but Paul talks about dissassociating yourself from sinners.  Paul denounces drunkeness,  yet Christ turned water to wine after everyone at the party was already lit.  There are other examples if you really pay attention but my point was not to go down that rabbit hole.  Contradictory or not, it doesn't matter.  What the man himself said should be far more important than what one of his followers wrote.  If you pay more attention to what Paul taught, why not call yourself a Paulite :P
