comment What process will be followed for the Anglican Covenant after its rejection by the Church of England?
This question is inviting speculation about the future, and so off-topic.

comment What does the Bible say about life before conception?
@Matt If you are giving the viewpoint of a particular Christian tradition it might be a good idea to state that.

References to angels existing before we were born is not proof that we existed before we were born.

This is absolutely not mainstream Christian belief.

comment Religious justification for creating a large angry scene with the ostensible purpose of making people not gay
Still not sure if you are talking about calmly stating your viewpoint about a controversial issue, or about angrily protesting against someone giving their views.

@MarcGravell I didn't mention blasphemy either.

@Shredder You seem to have answered your own question. Jesus said many things that people, especially the religious leaders of his day, found objectionable. Some of them tried to kill him. Some succeeded.

@MarcGravell It may well be true that the speaker was inflammatory, but I didn't see anything in the question to state that he was. I'll allow the questioner to correct me if necessary. Are you claiming that someone stating an opinion that you disagree with is reason enough to yell, curse and threaten them?

You are right Marc, and I apologize for the assumption. But the questioner seems to be asking why the speaker made their appearance, rather than why there was noisy protest. The answers seem to be explaining reasons for Christian protest rather than for a Christian speaking.

I don't see any indication that the speaker was doing anything to promote hatred. As I read the question the angry protests came from the people opposing him.

There seems to be a fundamental misunderstanding here. By my reading the question is not describing an ugly protest by Chrstians against a homosexual speaker, but an ugly protest by non-Christians against a speaker who came to express his Christian viewpoint on homosexuality. I'm not sure why this is even a question about Christian attitudes.

From your description the speaker was Christian, so the protesters weren't. Is your question about the behaviour of the protesters? Or are you implying that because some people might decide to protest against a viewpoint, that viewpoint should not be expressed by Christians?

comment Does the act of sex constitute marriage in God's eyes?
I don't believe there is any significant evidence for the separation of ancient Jewish legal marriage and 'heavenly marriage' . In modern times while there can be a difference between marriage as defined by the church and marriage as defined by the state, I see absolutely no evidence that the mere act of sex could be considered marriage.

comment What are the “correct” steps for a layman to be a Christian?
Any discussion is going to be far too complex for this site. What I suggest is to read the Gospels, take particular note of what Jesus said to those who wanted to follow him, and see if it agrees with the description you just wrote.

I was looking for a modern analogy, so no I wasn't commenting on the validity of multiple marriages when it was legal and the norm.
