why is gay marriage not legal in Israel?

If gay marriage is legal in the united states, Canada, Australia, why is it not legal in Israel?

also how do you feel by the fact that religious authorities in Israel have a monopoly over marriage and divorce?

should Israel join the 21st century and abolish the religious authority in their country?

    Because the government in Israel doesn't decide what marriage is legal or illegal.  They don't have civil ceremonies like we do.  Each religion's leaders decide what marriages will or will not be legal in their religion.  This means, for example, that a Catholic can't marry a divorced person, even though Jews, Muslims, and Protestants can, and that marrying someone from a different religion is nearly impossible for everyone.

    Gay marriage in the Holy Land? Well, first of all in some cities it can be recognized provided the marriage was committed outside the country. Then, you must find a city to register as a same-sex couple. So, it can be done, in a roundabout way.

    Israel is a country which is very much ruled by the Old Testament.

    'Gay' marriage isn't a law anywhere, same sex marriage however, is legal in many countries. Same sex couples in Israel can get married in another country, then have that marriage registered when they return to Israel.
