comment Can other “scripture” (such as the Quran) be used as ultimate authority in presuppositional apologetics?
A Christian apologist may deal with philosophical matters outside of Christianity itself. That doesn't make those matters a applicable on a forum about Christianity, especially when it is about applying them to non-Christian scriptures.

I don't think this is really a question about Christianity. Either philosophy or other religions.

comment What are some of the reasons for which Catholics are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
I am not presenting you with an argument, I am answering your question. StackExchange is the wrong place for an argument, but you seem to be intent on having it. I'm not going to.

comment What are some of the reasons for which mainstream non-Catholic Christians are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
@BCLC Because every time someone gives you an answer you try to invalidate that answer. Because you ask accusatory 'follow-up' questions. Because you ask for clarifications on things that you claimed originally to know the answer to. Because you say things like "Okay, so you presented the assumptions. What is the argument?". Because you feel the need to reply to every single comment that is made, and every answer that is presented. Because you keep talking about answers that don't "make an argument".

@BCLC You seem to be trying to conduct an argument in the comments section. Please don't do that. In fact please don't use this site to have an argument at all. If you have more specific questions, please ask them as a separate question.

comment What are some of the reasons for which mainstream non-Catholic Christians are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
@BCLC You posted this already, but it doesn't make sense. You said you understood why some Christians were against homosexual practice. So why are you now asking "What exactly is the immoral behaviour in secular same-sex marriage?". Isn't it obvious? If you really don't know the answer, then please ask a new question.

comment What is the Biblical basis for a Heavenly Mother?
"Even the modern concordances regularly ignore the fact." Or, to put it another way "All reputable Bible scholars disagree with this view".

comment What is the Biblical basis for a Heavenly Mother?
This appears to be your personal view. Are there any Christian groups that espouse this view?

@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.

comment What are some of the reasons for which Catholics are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
@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.

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