However, back in the day, “honor your father and mother’ could deal with things including ‘arranged marriage’. So if a ‘child’ was to decide not to marry the person that the family chose for the person to marry, that would be disrespect for the family. Of course in a modern sense if the parents believed that marriage should only between a ‘man and a woman’, and the gay person chooses to go against the parents wishes. That might also fall under the ‘dishonor the parents’ statute.
Of course back then the wages for dishonoring the parents, was stoning.
But that’s something for God to sort out.
On a side note another missive repeated throughout the bible in gender specific terminology (and allusions to the mother and father, also gender specific) includes;
For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

Where in my post does it say that a gay person cannot ‘honor their father and mother’?
I’m only discussing that the mother and father part uses gender specific terminology. It doesn’t state two males or two females becoming a family, begetting children.
It’s in reference to the comment: ““Don’t be gay didn’t make it into the ten commandments”.
What did make it into the ten commandments are references to male/female family structure.
But blink, doesn’t seem you are capable of reading or understanding context.

Flag laws were invalidated by the 1st Amendment. You can’t have one law that restricts another form of speech. What you do with your own flag is your choice, as long as you don’t go and steal, destroy, or desecrate someone else’s property.
Otherwise hate laws would be just as binding. Hate laws go against 1st amendment rights as well.

Supreme court declared all flag etiquette as non-binding, thanks to 1st amendment. People can do pretty much anything with a flag, provided they own the flag first, and don’t desecrate someone else’s property.

As much as I find it offensive, a Mexican raising a Mexican flag above a US flag is still legal, as long as its his property.
Same goes for Christians.

We are also not a fascist nation. The government cannot tell you how to fly a flag, or what flags to fly. See Eichman vs. United States, and Johnson vs. Texas.
The 1st Amendment allows one the right to do whatever they want with any flag, as long as it belongs to them, and is on their own property. It outranks any flag code laws. 2nd amendment protects a person’s right to defend their right do whatever they want with their own flags.

Personally I’d put government last in my priorities.

To many people their government is their religion.

Assassin’s Creed is a bit more nuanced than that though. It acknowledges good and bad capitalism. Free market good, government intrusion bad, slavery market bad. All men have the right to liberty and choose their own lives good.

Sounds more like ‘antitheism’ rather than just ‘atheismism’.
Another thing about true phobias is that due to high levels of anxiety (the reason its classified as a anxiety disorder), a person with phobia has a hard time coping with or existing in the public, lest they encounter that which they fear. It often prevents them from working, and can lead to them to becoming reclusive lest thy encounter their fear.
Christians do not have a problem working with, or being around gays, and can and will often confront them directly about the other person’s sin, in an attempt to convert and change the heart of the other person. There is no ‘anxiety’ involved, except for maybe the person being ‘rebuked’, proselytized (if they are not open to the advice), but certainly not anxiety on the part of the one proselytizing.

Phobia means ‘fear of’. Somehow I think that emotion doesn’t apply. Most people don’t ‘fear homosexuality’.
Also its not a true phobia, a true phobia is medically recognized anxiety disorder, it is a mental condition and disorder. So called ‘homophobia’ is not yet medically recognized, or recorded in the medical and psychological text books.

Somehow think he’s probably more of a “Christianphobe”, than a heterophobe. Unless he is gay?

As long as he lives, he has a chance to repent.

So are you thinking? “What’s next? A muslim will come in expecting to wear a burkha?”
I think a muslim actually did win one of these contests a few years back? Although I don’t recall her wearing a burkha.
