Shh...don't let some logic get in the way of good old fashioned homophobia.

I still want to know why there isn't a section on the offence of divorce in the criminal code. Nobody ever answers that one either.

I don't know who you want an answer like this from. As a Christian, I do not offer a secular perspective.

Allow me to make a recommendation:

First off, no thorough Biblical study is without the Oxford Annotated Bible. Get it with the apocrypha too, if only because you get all the books of the Western Christian tradition and some Eastern Christian traditions.

It's probably the least biased Bible that you'll ever find, because it is written for secular collegiate study and feels no compulsion to uphold traditional misinterpretations.

right now, i'm much more personally interested in Buddhist thought. i find it extremely comforting and calming. the world seems less scary.
Well, as they say, Western Buddhism is mostly Zen Buddhism with a hint of Tibetan Buddhism for color. I find the other Buddhist denominations to be less flattering and much more prone to the violence, xenophobia, and inflexible ritualism that we'd find in other world religions.

As a Christian there is more than one view on this topic.

I thought the question was answered when Christ was quoted.

If you want other definitions, seek and ye will find.

so what does Christ think of Martha?

could you illuminate us?

more importantly, why should Martha care what you think that Christ thinks about her marriage?

true, when i was working on a documentary about the Three Gorges Dam, i got some exposure to some rather disturbing Buddhist art. gross, scary stuff.

for Western Buddhism at it's best, i recommend reading my man Thich Naht Hanh.

I never said you were required to have kids to have a legit marriage.

Here is one such verse - Matthew 19:4 "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh?'So they are no longer two, but one.--"
