Well, there isn't a shred of a hint of polygamy among the Jews in Jesus' or Paul's time.
I found a shred of a hint:
quote:"When the Christian Church came into being, polygamy was still practiced by the Jews. It is true that we find no references to it in the New Testament; and from this some have inferred that it must have fallen into disuse, and that at the time of our Lord the Jewish people had become monogamous. But the conclusion appears to be unwarranted. Josephus in two places speaks of polygamy as a recognized institution: and Justin Martyr makes it a matter of reproach to Trypho that the Jewish teachers permitted a man to have several wives. Indeed when in 212 A.D. the lex Antoniana de civitate gave the rights of Roman Citizenship to great numbers of Jews, it was found necessary to tolerate polygamy among them, even though it was against Roman law for a citizen to have more than one wife. In 285 A.D. a constitution of Diocletian and Maximian interdicted polygamy to all subjects of the empire without exception. But with the Jews, at least, the enactment failed of its effect; and in 393 A.D. a special law was issued by Theodosius to compel the Jews to relinquish this national custom. Even so they were not induced to conform." Wikipedia
Maybe it existed among the Greeks and Romans?
Would it kill you to be right about something just once?
So whenever there is a conflict between the law and a Christian's conscience about the ordinance of marriage the Christian must refuse to obey the law.
If something in your job offends your conscience, you get a different job.
If spewing carbon into the atmosphere offends your conscience, don't work in a gas station. If pornography offends your conscience, don't work in a sex shop. If your conscience is fussy about who should marry whom, don't work in the wedding industry.
Deliberately working in an industry where you KNOW you're going to have to break the law is NOT condoned by Christianity.
... it's about a law dictating to Christians, forcing us by law to accept something that is against our Christian conscience....
You and Trump need to learn that US laws are not allowed to target specific religions. They apply equally to ALL religions. So if a Satanist baker refuses to make a cake for a True Christian wedding, he's breaking the same law as you are.
I've many times here already said there is no problem with anything available in a bakery except a personal custom-made wedding cake.
You're making a very petty nitpick about a very petty situation. You're singling out homosexuality from a wide variety of Old Testament infractions. Homosexuality is NOT a big issue in the Bible. It's on a par with eating shellfish. (Note that the children of Israel would not have been exposed to a lot of shellfish while wandering in the desert, which was when the law was given. It looks like they just threw in a few insignificant "abominations" to fill up the page.)
