Woman weds Jesus but the groom was otherwise tied up

Catholics do stoopid on a scale few other religions can match. This was most recently demonstrated in Fort Wayne when Jessica Hayes, 38 – ‘a beloved theology’ teacher at Bishop Dwenger High School – took Jesus Christ to be her awful lawful wedded husband.

Another Christian nut says that the rainbow belongs to God

A while back I posted a piece about American evangelist Bryan Fischer, who claimed that gays had misappropriated the rainbow and demanded that it be given back to the Almighty.
