In the Dec. 17 article “Rabbis explore Jewish views of sexuality ” I was quoted as saying that I might rejoice if my own son established a loving same-sex relationship. Aside from being somewhat perplexed as to why a response to a question at the conclusion of an hour- long discussion on the issue should be the opening line of the article, the statement is factually incorrect. What I did say in response to the questioner was that if my son felt that the only way he could find any happiness was by establishing such a relationship, I, as a father, would be happy for him that he was able to experience some degree of happiness in his life. I never said that I would rejoice or celebrate his decision.
