'A Marvelous Opportunity' to Learn How to Love

Article excerpt

I have just finished reading Homosexuality and Christian Faith: Questions of Conscience for the Churches. As the mother of a gay son, I quote from the Afterword: "We can treat this controversy, not as a sign of the church's decadence or its disobedience, but as a marvelous opportunity to learn to love as Jesus commanded us to love."

Changing marriage

I have a compromise solution for the same-sex marriage dispute. There are two elements to marriage. The first is the relationship between two persons, upon which the current debate is centred. The second, upon which it was originally founded, is procreation or the creation of life.

My suggestion is that the traditional form of marriage be altered to provide two forms, one specifically recognizing the creation of life, and one not. To equate heterosexual with homosexual marriage is to eliminate procreation as a factor, and by implication, of importance.
