If that was the case, they could also accuse you of hating them because you oppose their POV.
I didn't catch where you used the Bible to justify imposing your religion on others. Would you cite the verse, please?

Where did I say anything about imposing anything?

I believe that he is referring to nourishment of the spirit because 10:3 says:

But I'm assuming that there wouldn't be a shift in meaning. Any thoughts?

Do you support the government recognizing hetero-marriage?

What? Are you denying that the quote I provided is something you said? Hell, here is the link.

If you had copied one more verse you would have known it is about food: "Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience for, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.” If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience."

No, I am not denying anything, I am just saying that is not the post I was referring to. When you asked me where the Bible defines marriage between, I answered you by quoting from the Bible. Drop the games.

Why do you think that that excludes the continuation of the metaphor? Wouldn't the paragraphs have been separated into chapters if the subject were changed from spiritual nourishment to physical nourishment? And if not, why does 31 mention "whatever you do":

Please note that I'm not saying that I'm right; I really don't know. I'm just asking for your perspective.

Not for a lack of trying.

I have yet to have one give me a good explanation why their religious rules ought be codified into civil laws, though.

This discussion needs to be in the "Religion" thread.

It is irrelevant to anyone who isn't a Christian, be they Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jewish, Taoist, Jain, Unitarian/Universalist, Zoroastrian, Wiccan, Pagan, Agnostic, Atheist, Non-Theist, Deist, etc.

This discussion dismisses the laws of the states of the United States, rulings of the US Supreme Court, the Constitution of the US, the electorate and citizenry of the US.

This discussion is about religious dogma, morality, and theologically vague and nebulous concept called "sin" ...
