You make a good point. Perhaps that is why you aren't welcome in many Christian Churches.

So, still no legally valid justifications for prohibiting same-sex marriage?

No person ever cloud live by all the rules of the bible. The demand that would have us stone unruly children to death is not compatible with morality,empathy or ethics of any kind.

Exactly. David would only be welcome if he would repent.

“I can hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so, the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother, and almost all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine.”

What do pagan worship practices have to do with the topic of gay folks marrying? Some might be practicing pagans, but that's completely legal in this country, and since only God can read their hearts and souls, I wouldn't fret.
And, does it really make you feel more secure and superior to imagine that God writes people off entirely?
He doesn't you know.
That's rather the point of Christianity.
I agree that it's irrelevant. It doesn't matter if gays 'marry'. They will still burn in Hell forever.

Geesh.
You follow a sick little god.
Mine isn't of that sort.
Who is your god? I don't think you know. My God is Jesus.

I can. I have at least the hope of eternal life in God's Kingdom. You don't have any hope at all.

And you know that, how? Oh THAT'S right, cuz you said so LMFAO.
I know enough to know that arsenokoites does NOT mean "man sex" as you dimwitted morons seem to think.
In fact, I broke down the definition for you and explained it's correct usage. The fact you don't like empirical proof is a problem you'll have to deal with. Philo spoke both Greek and Hebrew. The roots of the word arsenokoites comes from Hebrew which meant "temple prostitution". Full stop!
Funny how you'll take the word of someone who wasn't even around when Christ was walking the Earth, but you utterly dismiss a contemporary who lived at the same time as Christ.
Did you know that the word "arsenokoites" only appears 77 times in ALL of the Greek writings throughout history? In EVERY case of its mention, it was referring to temple prostitution. Now, WHY would the definition change JUST for one use in the Bible?
Never mind, the question might as well be rhetorical since you obviously haven't got the intellectual capacity to answer.
Education > dogma
Alas, ALL of our English Bibles say you are wrong.

For believing the Bible?

Hint: You are delivered unto Satan in Jesus' Name.

1 Corinthians 5:5 (NKJV)
5 deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
