The Christian law is for Christians, marriage is a Christian covenant used by some Pagans.
If you as Homosexuals want a civil contract, then make up your own.
Marriage is a religious covenant.
The Op statement is based on sheer ignorance or blatant lies.
It is embarrassing how silly some people are.
Judaism is not Christianity, even a child can comprehend that simple fact. Just looking with you eyes can the difference be seen, if you decide to engage your brain. Wow

The change of morals isn't happening in the Muslim countries but only in those "western" countries with a professing "Christian" population and their descendants.
Many of the laws that the article makes light of have spiritual meaning. Eating an unclean animal can spiritually mean to stay away from unclean occult doctrines. Who did Jesus cast the demons into - pigs, the basis of those farmers livelihoods.

I don't think people understand the OT Law does not apply to NT Christians. However the NT talks about fornication, divorce and homosexuality as being wrong. Also cursing.edit on 9-3-2012 by 547000 because: (no reason given)

Anyways, there are things that all humans instantly know are wrong (despite how much you might enjoy them, your conscience at one point was screaming at you) murder, theft, sodomy etc.

Religions is built around the values of purity and being civilized.
Tattoos: The body is considered sacred and should not be defiled.
Injury: The House of God being a sacred space, one should only enter while clean
Psychics: One should consult God, not the deceased.
Gossip: Ones words are considered sacred and they should not be wasted
Children Cursing their Parents: Ones words are considered sacred they should not be used to curse
The other points are considered unclean by some not by others.
One of the numerous logical fallacies of religion-haters is to spill the baby with the bathwater. Just because items like ham or homosexuality are debatable, does not mean that the whole idea of purity and all other biblical recommendations should be dismissed.edit on 9-3-2012 by lucid eyes because: (no reason given)

You still didn't address the 13 points made in the OP's link. Do that and we'll have something to discuss.

I don't dismiss everything in the Bible. I like most of what Jesus says, especially the part about treating others as you would like to be treated.
