Why I do not trust political arguments employing Scripture....
It would not be unkind to say that the view of this particular picture's authors is left of centre, the same alignment that utterly dismisses Levitical teaching on homosexuality, as well as other sexual misconduct. Sauce for the goose, Mr. Saavik.
That's right! It is certainly fine to cherry-pick verses that agree with your opinion or point-of-view, but Heaven forbid that you pay heed to what gives you political dyspepsia.
I do not care whether the point of view is right or left, or north-by-northwest. Neither Moses nor Jesus Christ are political figures, and to drag them and their specially-picked sayings into the mire of political foolishness is a debasement most foul.
The Word of God exists to show us of our need of redemption and change, and to show God's gracious provision of a redeemer. Perhaps if that were examined, rather than trying to rope the Almighty into supporting our partisan bickering, then maybe a redeemed people agreeing with God's POV might be able to help straighten out this old world.
