comment What are some of the reasons for which Catholics are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
@BCLC The number of your comments leads us to believe that you are not so much interested in the answer to your question, as you are in having a debate on the subject. This is the wrong place for that.

@BCLC You asked why Christians would be opposed to same-sex secular marriage. You said you understood opposition to religious same-sex marriage. This answer gives you the differences. If you didn't understand about general reasons for believing homosexual activity wrong, then please ask a new question.

comment When was the last time, if ever, the secular world acknowledged a demonic possession?
I'm not sure there is one. If you are thinking about European history it's very hard to separate 'secular' authority from 'religious' authority. If you are trying to come up with an occasion when a non-religious group admitted there was a demon possession, that's going to be tough. It's like asking "when was the last time an atheist admitted there was a God". As soon as they admit there is a God they aren't an atheist any more.

The 'secular world' as you describe it has really only been in existence for about a hundred years. There is a abundant evidence that the Jewish authorities of Gospel times acknowledged demon possession. And being a Roman ruler certainly didn't make you an atheist.

"If you don't think sex is for procreation, then you can't denounce sodomy either". Philosophically not true. Sex might have some other purpose, or purposes, which homosexual sex does not fulfil. It's also not true that Catholic think sex is only for procreation. I also challenge you to find references to show that Catholics believe that "the acceptance of contraception led to the acceptance of sodomy".

comment Is there a hidden theological meaning in the sentence "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”?
@klopps Actually human judges mostly do pursue punishment even if the victim forgives the person who wronged them. Jesus however is saying something slightly different - not just "I forgive them" but "Father forgive them". But we are touching on deep spiritual matters here, much too deep for the comments section of a forum.

This seems to be your opinion, rather than that of Christians in general. Is there a Christian group that identifies with this view?

You may be under a misapprehension here. God, as judge, is not seeking revenge for the sufferings of the innocent, he is seeking justice - just like a human judge is not seeking revenge on someone who breaks the law, they are seeking justice.

Can you be more explicit about what you mean by "besides homophobia"? People mean all sorts of different things by that word.

comment Does Jesus ever claim to be God, or the son of God?
Not only does this not answer the question, but it also appears to be your personal view. This site is about answering questions on "What do Christians believe?", not "What does Princelegant believe?". Can you identify any Christian group that agrees with your views?

comment Did the Jews think it was immoral to have leprosy?
The offering in question is a thanksgiving for cleansing from leprosy.
