For so the Bible told me so...
In Luke 7:1-10 Jesus cured a Centurion's servant-- except the original Greek word used was 'pais' or boy-slave. And contemporaneously Roman Officers would take with them boys that they would sodomize, it is likely that this is what is being referred in the New Testament.
Jesus provided services to homosexuals why is it right for the government to withhold licensing services from homosexuals?
Samaritans in the old testament rejected Yahweh and worshiped a god named Ba'al, so even a person that breaks the first commandment can lead a life that coincides with Jesus' teachings and scriptures' commandment to love your neighbor Luke 10:30–37.
If G-d so loved the world that G-d sacrificed his only son, why wasn't there any exemption of that love? Why if G-d loves the world with homosexuals in it, would you get to believe that hating (or anything short of loving) G-d's fellow creations is welcomed by our Creator?
For every Christian that argues against marriage equality I would ask them to check their Bible again, or also call for the demolition of Red Lobsters across the nation.
But these same pseudo-Christians will make the false claim that United States was founded as a Christian or Judeo-Christian nation. They need to check out the First Amendment's "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion" or Article VI of the Constitution "but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States" or Treaty of Tripoli's Article 11 "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion." But that would require a wider mind than is displayed.
