Faith & Marriage
"As a rabbi, as a religious person, I look at this issue and think: if God made gays and lesbians the way they are, then they, too, are created in the image of God. And if God said it is not good for a human being - any human being - to be alone, then who am I, and who are we as a human society, to tell them to live alone, or to live a lie. As a rabbi, as a person of faith, I believe it is a God-given right for each one of us to make a family with whomever we choose."
