comment What is the Biblical basis against inter-faith marriages?
@Nathaniel I've rolled the question back to the edited version. I'm still not clear about Caleb's comment about my "negative wording" not helping the case for my question being open, but your comments make sense. I'm uncertain whether it is best to leave the question in Mr. Bultitude's version (in the hopes that it can be re-opened), or whether I should abandon this and ask a new, Lutheran-based version. Hopefully the community will provide clear guidelines for which direction I should take in my meta question.

@Nathaniel Ah, so the negative phrasing was intended to provide a stance as a basis for the answers to approach, rather than an open-ended list of relevant quotes? Am I understanding that correctly? Thanks for the help!

Trying to phrase question as less opinion based.

If adding "Lutheran" (or a more specific doctrinal subdivision of Lutheranism, as I understand that that might still be overly broad) fixes the question, does it then become valid to add multiple versions of this question for various other doctrines (e.g. "Roman Catholicism")?

comment What is the Biblical basis against inter-faith marriages?
@Caleb Thanks for the clarification. I'm not sure I understand how my comment was on the "wrong track", though, if indeed questions about the bible are considered opinion based. Seems to me my comment was quite accurate, if not altogether positive in its tone. After reading your comments, and your meta post, I am unsure how my answer could be salvaged. By my negative wording, are you saying "what parts of the bible allow or support inter-faith marriage" would be more on-track? As for a specific doctrinal position, would saying "Lutheran" (my wife's church) be sufficiently specific?

Seems rather bizarre that almost 5 years later, this gets closed as "opinion based"... when it was, both before and after the edit, looking for sources from the bible. I guess the bible is now considered opinion?

comment How do young earth creationists reconcile the age of the universe with the speed of light, and visible distant objects?
Fair enough, which is why I did not downvote your answer. However, just because your answer wasn't intended to prove anything is not justification for casually discrediting widely accepted theory without something to back it up.

"There have been plenty of arguments against the red shift theory. So it cannot be entirely counted on." Discounting, even partially, a widely accepted theory based upon the volume, rather than the quality, of arguments you haven't directly cited seems a bit dodgy. One could just as easily say "there have been plenty of arguments against the theory that the earth revolves around the sun, so it cannot be entirely counted on."
