What More Do You Need???

From a Newsday story about the NY legislature’s gay marriage debate:

Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), an Orthodox Jew, [suggested] incestuous couples be recognized along with those of the same sex. “There are certain things that do not change for me unless God sends a message to me,” he said.

Lawmakers laughed minutes later when they heard thunder from a passing storm.

I guess it would have been cooler if it had been seconds later rather than minutes later, but God was probably busy – you know how it is when you’re doing a billion things at once.

Seriously, the opposition just looks to me like homophobia masquerading as piety. If marriage is such a wonderful, holy sacrament, why would God create people who are unable to partake of it? What’s so terrible about formalizing all loving, committed relationships? I think religion is just being used as an excuse here – it wouldn’t be the first time.
