Hmmmm... so you can do whatever you want, whether it puts others at risk, because Jesus is on your side?! That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.

"A Tennessee couple wanted their month-old daughter to actively participate in their wedding, so they made her the center of attention by attaching her to the train of the bride's dress andliterally dragging her down the aisle.

The new #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple (sorry, Kim and Yeezy), Shona Carter-Brooks and Johnathan Brooks, came under fire on social media after pictures of their stunt hit the internet. Carter-Brooks responded to her critics on Facebook, explaining how she decided to attach baby Aubrey to the dress: "The answer is we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine."

"Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!! So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!!"



I can't grasp this one. It's like saying I don't need to take any safety precautions (aka use common sense) because I believe in Jesus.

I think this is why I have a problem with religion in politics; sometimes people put their faith over common sense. These people are morons for doing that, but it's ok, because Jesus is on their side. So I'm sure if the baby smothered, then that would be ok too! Because Jesus was on their side!

I saw this all over fb and I couldn't believe the horrible comments. Personally, I didn't think it was as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Maybe not the smartest thing to do but it's not like the baby was in danger or anything. As far as using Jesus as an excuse, the parents need to study a bit more. The Bible says (1Corinthians 10:23) "All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify."

I saw that Tennessee couple's wedding photograph. Its sad, because although they think what they did was really cool, and unique, everyone else just thought it looked stupid.

And would Jesus agree with circumcision, even though he himself was circumcised? The New Testament says no in St Paul's letters to Christians.
