Photo of Marine praying with bride-to-be goes viral

A photo of a young Marine praying with his bride-to-be quickly went viral after it was posted on Facebook by the wedding photographer.

U.S. Marine Cpt. Caleb Earwood wanted to pray with his bride Maggie before their ceremony in Asheville, North Carolina, on Saturday. So with the help of their family and wedding photographer Dwayne Schmidt, Caleb was guided to the cabin where Maggie was getting ready for the service, where the couple joined hands around a corner so as not to break tradition and see each other before the altar.

"They hid me in a room and he stepped up on the stairwell and he stuck his hand out and I grabbed his hand," Maggie Earwood told ABC News.

"As soon as their hands touched he started getting emotional," Schmidt told ABC News.

No offence, but she looks like she just threw up in her mouth.



And he looks like he's not enjoying himself much.

Seems like a depressing example of conditioned superstitious behaviour.

the praying should be done to ensure he keeps a healthy mind and body.

I dream in my lifetime uhmericans will come to realize hezbollah, hamas, and isis gain followers by helping society AND the only way to defeat them is to perform greater good.

Jesus Himself told us that we are to pray "in secret, in our closets".



This was nothing but religionist, heterosexual grandstanding.

Their marriage would last longer if they would communicate with each other instead of praying to a non existent god.


And, to hear tell by many self proclaimed christians; christians are being persecuted. How could they be persecuted if something like this has gone "viral"?

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.   Isaac Asimov

Mountain Man,


May the Force be with you.


But I was wondering, what evidence do you have that God doesn't exist?
