Quiz: How many biblical prohibitions are they violating? Well, wives are supposed to be 'submissive' to their husbands (I Peter 3:1). And all women are forbidden to teach men (I Timothy 2:12), wear gold or pearls (I Timothy 2:9) or dress in clothing that 'pertains to a man' (Deuteronomy 22:5). Shellfish and pork are definitely out (Leviticus 11:7, 10) as are usury (Deuteronomy 23:19), shaving (Leviticus 19:27) and clothes of more than one fabric (Leviticus 19:19). And since the Bible rarely recognizes divorce, they're committing adultery, which carries the rather harsh penalty of death by stoning (Deuteronomy 22:22).
So why are they having such a good time? Probably because they wouldn't think of worrying about rules that seem absurd, anachronistic or - at best - unrealistic. Yet this same modern-day couple could easily be among the millions of Americans who never hesitate to lean on the Bible to justify their own anti-gay attitudes.

Gay, or not gay, I'm not going to judge. But, all that you had mentioned as sins are in the OLD testament. All that has been wiped clean and no longer considered a sin in the NEW testament. Those were considered crimes for that era. Those laws pertained to that way of life, to govern that culture.
V Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
With the beginning of the second tablet which involves our relationships with people, we have a call out to honor our father and mother. This may seem rather obvious to most, however, many of us fall hopelessly short in keeping this commandment. Because God created us and knows best how things should operate, He established a certain order based on honoring those in authority over us. Anyone who has been involved in situations where many people wanted to be the leader can see the need for a sort of "chain of command" for keeping order.
We must understand that when we take it upon ourselves to honor only those who we deem worthy, our attitude may come from an unchanged heart still in rebellion. Honoring our parents is part of honoring God.
This is only a theory often mentioned of my elders: Some may dispute this to also symbolize honoring the laws of your country that your Fathers and Mothers help create. Whatever your laws are, not following them is a sin.
I'm not sure if this is true, but my point is those silly laws of dress and eating pork were history of the old testament.
I don't think the originator of this post was trying to lash out at gay people. If they were then please find a new forum, that is not welcome here, perhaps you would find better arguement at a relegious forum. This person hasn't given thier opinion yet, so perhaps it was only curiousity and perhaps they dis-agree with the above mentioned post.
