Gagnon: Gay couples only deserve what 'would be given to close but non-sexual friendships'
More from the exceedingly anti-gay guy who speaks every summer at the National Organization For Marriage's "It Takes A Family" conference:
"Persons in a homosexual union should not have the sexual component of their union validated, as though they had now become “one flesh” with their same-sex “partner” through an immoral sexual bond. They should not have any special treatment beyond the treatment that would be given to close but non-sexual friendships. By the way, we do hope for a refashioning of heaven and earth in which all manner of sin is done away, which would certainly include an end to homosexual practice, as well as other sexual sins such as incest, adultery, bestiality, polyamory, and fornication. Certainly there is more to the kingdom of God than this but at the same time this more does not mean something less than an end to immorality."
—Rob Gagnon, writing to Christian ministry leader Julie Rodgers
Fortunately, I'm not even kind of seeking Mr. Gagnon's validation of my marriage. Not even a little. Like, I care more about what the girl who serves me my frozen yogurt thinks than I do what Mr. Gagnon thinks. So we're good there.
But I do care what my government thinks. Last time I checked, that government license does not come with not a litmus test to determine if a civil marriage is "one flesh"-y enough to meet certain people's personally-held theologies. Nor will it ever, which is (one reason) why Mr. Gagnon and his allies will lose. And he knows it.
