Idiots and their religious law. How is this different from Iran?
Mississippi has just passed the religious freedom act, enshrining these values into law.
22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Roman Wedding predating Christianity
5 If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married.
1 Corinthians 7:10-11
10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
and this single verse, the only verse that addresses homosexuality in the entire bible
1 Corinthians 6:9
9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.
And Polygamy is protected now I guess
Jacob and his wives
The Right of the Firstborn
15 If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons but the firstborn is the son of the wife he does not love,
16 when he wills his property to his sons, he must not give the rights of the firstborn to the son of the wife he loves in preference to his actual firstborn, the son of the wife he does not love.
17 He must acknowledge the son of his unloved wife as the firstborn by giving him a double share of all he has. That son is the first sign of his father’s strength. The right of the firstborn belongs to him.
Now lets look at some polygamist religious prophets.
Wise King Salomon and some of his hundreds of wives
from Solomon to David to Jacob, all had multiple wives, including sisters, and in Solomon’s case a veritable village of spouses.
2 Samuel 5:13
13 After he left Hebron, David took more concubines and wives in Jerusalem, and more sons and daughters were born to him.
17 Then Jacob put his children and his wives on camels,
26 Give me my wives and children, for whom I have served you, and I will be on my way. You know how much work I’ve done for you.”
So where did the idea of one wife for one man come from? It was in practice before Christianity by the Romans and the Greeks.
In short, ‘Traditional Marriage’ is a recent 9th to 12th century Christian value adopted by the church from Pagan Pantheistic civilizations.
Religious laws only work in a theocracy. So America, either protect your freedoms, or build your churches. YOU CANT HAVE BOTH!
