Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

I get interesting mail whenever I put up one of my posts about gay marriage (or, in this case, gay rabbis). No one seems to like my solution to what seems to be a genuine dilemma. The consensus seems to be that the circle cannot be squared: either we accept gay people fully for what they are, and jettison the idea of sexual morality entirely (apart from retaining the importance of mutual consent), or we defend the idea of sexual morality at the price of sending gays back to (or keeping them in) the closet.

Is everybody out there really happy with these alternatives? I must admit, I find the general state of debate depressing indeed.
