By “replacement theology” I mean the view that the Church has replaced Israel.
I shall now prove using the powerful tools of biblical exegesis and syllogistic reasoning that the replacement camp should not be opposed to same-sex marriage.. An offshoot of this clincher is that it’s ok for replacement theologians/pastors/preachers to be camp.
The “Replacement” people use the following verse as one of their proofs that the Church has replaced Israel:
28 There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither bond nor free, there can be no male and female; for ye all are one man in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye are Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, heirs according to promise.
Both the Gentile Christian (say, Bob) and the Jewish Christian (say, Shneier) are in Christ Jesus.
Those in Christ Jesus – besides being neither Jew nor Greek – are, indeed are compelled to be, neither male nor female.
Bob can marry Shneier.

I now pronounce you man and husband..
The “Replacement” theologian will hopefully say that the Galatians verse above is not literal: unity between Jews and Greeks, males and females does not mean that literal Jews and literal Greeks morph into a figurative morass, or that all Christians become unisex. And they would be right, but neither does the Bible say that literal Israel gets swallowed up by the literal Church. The unity of the Body of Christ does not mean uniformity.
The Apostle Paul/Shaul says to Bob and Schneier (Cutter):
Neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as shall walk by this rule, peace be upon them [that is, Gentile Christians like you, Bob, which generally includes replacementists], and mercy, and upon the Israel of God [Jewish Christians like you, Scneier]. (Galatians 6:15-16).
