A respondent to Leonard Pitts’ column (TNT, 5-3) stated that the Bible condemns homosexuality, polygamy, incest and other atrocious activities, as they are “on the list of many types of sins” (letters, 5-11).
Since when is what two consenting people agree to an infraction of the rights of others, as mandated by the Constitution? Incest and rape are definitely atrocious sins, but they are not consensual, they are crimes. But just to love someone? Is that a crime? And to want to commit to each other – and GLBT relationships tend to last longer than heterosexual ones – well, there’s something wrong with this societal picture.
Besides, whose business is it, anyway, how we live our private sexual/personal lives, as long as it doesn’t harm anyone else?
