comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
Also, "the exact frequency and nature of "same-sex unions" during that period is obscure." The place to look for information on the executions seems to be Codex Theodosianus.

comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
But Wikipedia seems to contradict that very sentence: "While it is a relatively new practice that same-sex couples are being granted the same form of legal marital recognition as commonly used by mixed-sexed couples, there is a long history of recorded same-sex unions around the world." Since the word "marriage" is so critical in this issue, I think it wise not to equivocate on it.

comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
Can you provide a source for: "History shows many examples of cultures that have had fully legal and official homosexual marriages, right up until Christianity came along and made them illegal (often, as was the case in Rome, executing those already married as such)."

comment Can a Christian have clinical depression?
I want to thank you for being open about this. When a family member finally discovered they had depression a few years ago, I was shocked to find so many fellow Christians who told me about their experiences with depression. It's exceedingly likely that many of the heroes of the faith would have been diagnosed with these sorts of conditions if they had been subjected to modern medicine (with all it's positive and negative features). I also learned that while medication helps many, it doesn't help all.

comment Is there any biblical support for copyright law?
Welcome to Christianity--Stack Exchange! While I can see where you are coming from, we are looking for supported answers. I'm not sure, for instance, that 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 really supports your argument. How do you reconcile 1 Timothy 5:18 with this answer?

comment What is the Catholic position on Exodus 20:4?
@TRiG: I really doubt it. The organizer had many constraints: avoiding dangerous street crossings, not going past noon or starting too early, not interfering with the services in the two Adventist churches, forming a reasonable loop, beginning at a church that had good parking, and so on. The Catholic church also had a wedding later in the day, so it was not available for later commandments. A better-spoken priest would have had no problems answering the question, I suspect. (And he was not the worst speaker that day by any means.)

comment Did Paul preach Jesus's message?
@Doubting Thomas: You have three explicit questions here and several more implicit ones. Yes, asking another question about possible contradiction between Jesus and Paul would be a good idea. (I probably won't add to this answer, since it's long enough. ;-)

@Doubting Thomas: I thought you might, but I stopped before taking on a huge task. Could you ask a more focused question?
