The key fact I was missing  

I must have been fuzzy with tired last night when I made my previous post, How was I to know?, because it appears I palmed a card without even noticing I did so. That is to say, yes, Paul wasn't referring to the prevailing civil law of his time but to the Law = Torah and laws = mitzvot (the 613 commandments found in the Torah).

Still, I can't help but wonder if this teaching regarding one set of laws doesn't encourage a disrespect for all laws. Kind of, "Hey, I have faith—I don't need no stinkin' laws…." It would certainly explain the attitudes and behaviors of any number of people.

Re: contrariwise
Well, the eventual outcome was that some of us who hadn't been "introduced" actually started talking. We... know each other, now. And we're friendly, rather than just Those People At The Other Table. See, it's all good.
