comment Is the Catholic Church NOT against all birth control?
I upvoted, but I think this answer would be even better if you (1) gave the rather important context to your benedict quote (2) clarified whether the pope quotes are ex cathedra.

@fredsbend the relation of gov't to god re:romans is an interesting discussion, but not one appropriate for SE-style sites, imo.

comment From Scripture, what is the biblical basis gay marriage is a right from God?
@fredsbend yes. even with that reframing, the political setting of this question is at best a distracting introduction. it's illogical to fervently deduce that because gov't authority derives from God, that every gov't action derives from God. the core question is "From Scripture, what is the biblical basis gay marriage is a right from God?"

@FMS (1) you're presuming the constitution refers to the christian god, but the language you quoted goes out of its away to avoid naming christianity. (2) i'm suggesting you reframe using paul's assertion in romans that gov't derives its authority from [the christian] god.

you might bring up romans 8 or 10 or somewhere thereabouts to emphasize the bibli-political aspects

comment What is the Biblical basis for the belief that Jesus is Michael?
@warren My question is explicitly not about the biblical basis. Marking this as a dupe of my question shows that the closers haven't actually read my question. That said, I think this question is likely to cause subjective answers and opinions.

comment What is the origin of the idea that Michael is Jesus?
Great answer. I'm also still looking as I have time. I do have a tiny quibble..maybe. I'm no scholar of John Calvin, but at first Calvin talks (in Daniel) about it like it's purely other people's beliefs. Then towards the end, he endorses it for himself. Interestingly, he states often that it isn't a crucial theory, and there's none of the passion he has when mentioning Servetus.

comment What is the origin of the idea that Michael is Jesus?
This is a pretty good answer now. I plan to accept your answer in a few days (I think I can dig up a little bit more). I vote you win @flimzy's bounty for sure! However, it'd be worth mentioning support from John Calvin circa mid 1500s.

Fwiw, everyone I've met from the Calvary Chapel churches claims their denomination isn't a denomination.
