Don't confuse legal rights and religion

Posted: Monday, April 26, 2004

I thought the editorial on gay "marriages" or civil unions was one of the best, open and balanced articles I have seen on the issue. I happen to not be "gay." I am "straight." But if we start confusing legal rights and religious-denominational-beliefs-values with the government's obligation to guarantee justice and equality, we are in deep trouble. The founding fathers of this nation, knowing the theocracy of many countries in Europe, decided that government was for the people and morality was a debate for religion. It was a good editorial and I have sent it to many of my friends.
