Maine church leaders split on Calif. gay marriage decision | Bangor Daily News

[I’ve written this before — same-sex couples should have a right to marry if they are in loving, commited relationships and they intend to be together for the rest of their lives. It seems a basic civil and human right. And those who object to same-sex marriage seem to gloss over the fact that we hetrosexuals haven’t gotten marriage right, not yet. And for those who simply object to gays and lesbians forget that they very likely know someone who is gay or lesbian and very likely may be related to someone who is gay or lesbian. Would they reject their loved one’s right to marry? — KM]

Go to Coffeehouse Observer for more coffeehouse observations.
