Does the bible support or refute same sex marriage?
If you haven't heard, New York State passed a same-sex marriage bill this past weekend. The Catholic church was the biggest opponent to its passing. I do have one concern however and am posing this question based on this passage from the bible:
"Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right." Peter 2:13-14
I am no biblical scholar, so how does this work? The law allows for religious exceptions, but the bible says to submit to authority.
