One final post on this topic. I find it troubling that religious opponents of same-sex marriage (like Rabbi Spiro below) take comfort in the fact that gays are targeted for execution under Godâ€™s law. God must really have been serious about this law, unlike those less important laws, right?
Hereâ€™s a quick, but by no means exhaustive, list of offenses that merit death under Old Testament law:
The last offense seems to have been particularly important, since it merited a personal intercession from God himself.
35 Then the LORD said to Moses, “The man must die. The whole assembly must stone him outside the camp.” 36 So the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned him to death, as the LORD commanded Moses.
