Actually Jesus did address homosexual marriage directly. He quoted from Genesis at Matt. 19:4-6 about God putting the man and female together and saying the two should become one flesh. He followed the Law (Matt 5:17-18) and the Law clearly stated that homosexuality was a sin (Lev 18:22). Now homosexual marriage as a political issue, Jesus would have stayed out of that and wanted the same for his followers (John 17:16, 18:36).

The native NT API's don't actually change that much in breaking manner. Many ISVs, especially security software, rely on calling into the native API for stuff that isn't possible with Win32. Only recently has Microsoft gotten better at exposing much of that functionality. For instance if you had a handle to a thread and wanted to get the thread id, even though it's a very basic operation there was no way to do that before Windows Vista. Now there's GetThreadId.

There's no separate api. All requests for file objects go through the NT Object Manager which then passes it to the NTFS file system driver. There's actually a flag (OBJ_CASE_INSENSITIVE) that you pass to the kernel if you don't want it to consider case. The Win32 api always pass this flag. You can support case sensitivity in your application by not passing this flag.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
