Gothmog, #2 is wrong. When a man and woman marry, the 2 become 1. When one is a Christian and the other is not, when the other dies, they die a Christian. THAT is how loving and lawful GOD IS.

l. 'I am your clan-god YHWH who led you out of the house of Slavery in Mitzrayim ('Egypt') - you will have no other clan-gods before my faces.' (i.e. in the Temples)
2. 'You shall not make any graven (or 'molten') images for yourselves'. I guess the Hollywood motion-picture industry (or anyone using a video-camera or cell-phone lens, or even a photo-copier) has been busy dis-obeying this one. Get the stones out, it's going to be a busy year...
3. 'You will not raise-up ('mention' ?) the name of YHWH your clan-god for light [ Heb. 'Sheva', lit. 'empty' ] purposes.' Well, not too many people go around saying 'Yahweh dang-it !' so I guess this one's easier to keep. Or maybe not.
I think these few are enough to illustrate my point that ancient religious laws were meant for ancient pre-scientific people who believed they had to be told NOT to cast a spell on your neighbor's oxen (KJV 'covet' is actually from Heb. 'Keshet' i.e. 'to attract or cling-to by sorcery').
If the Christian Founder (‘Jesus’) said, ‘There Shall Be No Divorce—EVER’ then WHY was ex-Stripper (& B-Actress) Rachel ‘Call me Meghan’ Markle allowed to be married (in white !) in a ‘CHRISTIAN’ Royal Wedding ?
