  •  Your examples = Old Testament, not New Testament (0+ / 0-)

    You are talking about the Old Testament (like the Old Will and Testament) that was superceded by the New Testamant (God's New Will and Testament when Jesus came to earth and died for our sins).

    I think Jesus would be against gay marriage, as he specifically defined marriage in Matthew 19:4-12, as:

    "At the beginning, the Creator made them male and female and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'?  So they are no longer two but one.  Therefore, what God has joined together, let man not separate."

    I believe that Jesus would probably handle the issue like he handled the issue of the sinful, adulterous woman in John 8:1-11...with grace, mercy, non-judgmentally, and love.  But I see nowhere in the Bible where Jesus would condone and embrace (make legal) gay marriage.  He might say, "give to Caeser's what is Caeser's" (and say civil unions - what the state says is okay - are allowable), but marriage (at least marriage in terms of being honored in his Church) would not be allowed IMHO.
