Gay marriages

My wife and I were sitting at the breakfast table this morning drinking coffee and each reading a separate section of the morning papers.  It was quiet until my wife looked up from an article she was reading and asked, “how do you feel about legalizing gay marriages?”   My quick response:  “makes no difference to me.”  Gisela rejoined, “I think it would stabilize long-term relationships.”  As our conversation continued, I heard myself say, “on a personal level, the gay relationship is repugnant but for gays they may feel the same way about us herterosexuals.”  I should have said and written that it is not a loving relationship between members of the same sex that turns me off, but rather the sex act.     On the other hand…to each his or her own.

    Unlike you, homosexuals such as myself don’t see heterosexuals as “repugnant.” It is unfortunate you chose to use such a word to describe a loving relationship between two people. May you learn and grow and become a better person with more compassion, grace and dignity. You lost one reader today because of your hate.

      You are right. It was not my intention to describe a loving relationship between members of the same sex as “repugnant”. I should have said and written it is the sex act between members of the same sex that turns me off.
