    The premise of your request isn't valid:

    Mathew 5, 17
    "Don't misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose."

    So, the Old Testament is still valid.

    What can and can't be done in marriage is a long explanation. So I'll let this website do it. It is well done and has plenty of references:

    What Does the Bible Say About Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage?

    That should establish that marriage, per the bible, is only allowed between a man and a woman and that anything else is against God's law. The question then becomes, is helping someone to violate God's law a sin? Clearly the answer is yes.

    2 John 7-11

    7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what we[a] have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. 9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. 11 Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.
    Does a sin damn you for eternity? Well, yes and no. The goal of life is to avoid sin and apologize when you make a mistake. The less obvious answer is if you intentionally sin and then apologize. Many say you are still ok. Many say there is no repentance.

    Either way, the government has no right to put a person's soul in jeopardy just because they participate in commerce. That is a pure violation of the first amendment.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Because they are lazy and would rather enforce what they want God's word to be than what is God's word.

    Think I would rather be a piano player in a whorehouse than suffer a career in politics. Much more dignity in piano playing.

    Actually, after hearing some of the ridiculous remarks on this ruling from a few of the dissenting judges, I now feel it is rather disturbing how incredibly backwards some of them are.

    By default, it's an uphill battle for Republicans. When you start off with NY and California in your pocket, almost automatically, you are in pretty good shape. That's why the Democrats are trying to flood Texas with illegals and don't want any voter ID at all. They don't really care much about the illegals in other States, they know if they can get enough votes to get Texas, it would be impossible for a Republican to win.

    On the other hand, if the Republicans can win California or NY, ala Reagan, they have an easy win. But hey, why follow that strategy? They're going to throw up someone like Jeb Bush and lose again.
