Newspaper writing should be like this today! How epic and poetic is that?

Why do Christians who oppose same-sex marriage cite the Old Testament for their reasoning but don’t hold by things like, say, the prohibition of eating pork or observing Sabbath on Saturday? Those are in the Old Testament, too.
EDIT: Not that I think one can’t pick & choose—I do it all the time—just the vehemence involved here makes the discrepancy that much more glaring.

How is your crown supposed to fall off
when you look like Jesus
I am superficial because it feels religious
let’s light a candle for you not wanting me back
we could be dirty juice and bent crucifix
suspend the alphabet now
o sanctus sanctus sanctus puer
mea illusio mea est mea omnia
can you believe in guides your eyes can’t see
can you believe I still want you
I cannot believe you would choose loneliness
loneliness is how little you want me
I know nothing about Christianity
and so I love it
take me behind your mouth
that I might forsake it
pillar of salt
pillar of salt
