Reframing the Conversation

by Rev. Robert P. Layne 05-11-2013

In regard to the debate about same-sex relationships (“Breaking the Impasse”), can we please call the relationship in question same-gender marriage? After years as a pastoral/marriage counselor, I’ve learned that any marriage with sex as the binding principle is doomed. The term “same-gender marriage” is a better description and calms the heavy fear that sex provokes in so many minds. Let’s begin with that small change.
