{June 14, 2013}   God Believes in Love

Love“Those who oppose marriage equality for gay or lesbian couples, pleading for us not to “redefine” marriage, do not understand that gay marriage only builds up the traditional meaning of marriage. We are not changing its meaning but merely revising the list of those to whom it is available. Not unlike the rather recent opening of legal marriage to interracial couples, the legal marriage of two same-gendered people retains the traditional meaning of marriage while expanding the number of people whom it may benefit.”

 

The above is an excerpt from Gene Robinson’s book God Believes in Love: Straight Talk About Gay Marriage. I’m reading this book now and when I came across this little paragraph it struck a chord with me. Could anyone possibly explain this better than he did?!
