So, you do admit that there is no legally valid justification for prohibiting same-sex marriage. Thanks for that confirmation.

Any sect that doesn't agree with your biases is conveniently labeled "the world"?

How ... idiosyncratic.

It's also a fallacy.

11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us,(Old Testament) on whom the culmination of the ages has come.
Now, maybe you can tell us why we have the New Testament???

1 Timothy 1:9-11
9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,
10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine
11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.
You do know what sound doctrine is???
A pseudepigraphic tract by the followers of Saul is not a valid source.

Gay "marriage can't pit 'church against church'. But it can pit the real Church against the counterfeit (gay)'churches'.
Real marriage is between a man and a woman, while gay 'marriage' represents the counterfeit.

Do you not understand, there is a difference between the 10 commandments of the Old Testament and the COMMANDS of Jesus in the New Testament....
If we say the Law of Moses (Old Testament) was still in effect...
then we must say that Jesus violated the law when he became our High Priest.
That's a Johannine heresy, so it's a Straw Man fallacy.

Not according to the AMA, ASPP, both APAs, ASSW, or most Courts of Law where such have been proposed.

You have any new ones?

Well I should have said the Law of Moses because it would include all that and the 613 laws and statutes in the Law of Moses which Jesus apparently disregarded.

I'd say that he put them in their proper context. They were a Pharisee obsession for their social status, and a Sadducee means to regular meals.
