Last week reader Alice Goldsmith said, in effect, how could Jewish thought and tradition regarding homosexuality be wrong after 5,000 years? How long did slavery exist (and still does exist) before someone realized it was wrong? The same questions may be asked of traditional attitudes about women. Or blacks. Or Jews. It’s a question of individual rights, human rights. There used to be laws against interracial marriage, and we realized that was wrong (although I’m sure there are many who disagree with that). A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its people. The change in attitude toward gays is not a result of being hit over the head with political correctness or collective guilt. That’s just a poor rationalization. The world in general and America in particular have progressed over the centuries in how they treat minorities and women. If God didn’t want homosexuals, He wouldn’t have created them.
