Ah, but "clear biblical teaching" also demands that you must kill disobedient children: Deuteronomy 21:18-21, repeated in Leviticus. People with animus against homosexuals cherry pick the Bible to justify their dislike, while ignoring many of its other such bloodthirsty admonitions, more of which I'll happily quote to you if you don't know them.Rights come from Our Creator - God!
The government does not give us those!
Natural rights do also!
Unnatural is what gay marriage IS!
It IS a sin AGAINST nature & God!
Sodomy IS what homosexuality IS!
An UNNATURAL sex act!
Go to another Country where it IS welcome!
It is NOT welcome in the United States of America - a Christian Nation!
Cause it DAMN sure is NOT an atheist one!
In your heart you know they're ridiculous, so I ask you to look into your own heart and see another way to look at this ancient, heterogeneous anthology called by many, "The Word Of God", but not by God himself. If the Bible were really the literal word of God, then it would be in just one translation in every language, distributed free to every single human being on the planet.
In the New Testament, there is "clear biblical teaching" that women are inferior to men, as shown by Paul's admonition "should be silent in the churches", and "should not teach men".
When it comes to the founder of Christianity, Jesus Christ, it is essential to look at what he says about Homosexuality. Actually, nothing at all, not in his Two Commandments, nor in his Eight Beatitudes, nor his Seven Last Words. Quite an oversight by the Son of God, if Homosexuality is really so awful as to merit exclusion from the Promised Land, especially when he got stuck into those who judge others, without seeing their own faults.
Finally, what do you expect homosexuals to do, marry opposite sex partners in whom we have neither romantic nor sexual interest? Why would a sane woman marry a gay man who has no feelings for her, when she could have a heterosexual man head over heels for her?
