As a minister in a denomination that ordains gay clergy and offers all of its members the full benefits of membership in a loving faith community, I have conducted several same-sex weddings. In my experience, the love and commitment between gay and lesbian couples is usually even stronger than that of heterosexual couples. Their love has to be incredibly strong to withstand the discrimination and oppression they face on a daily basis.”
That’s what Rev. Matt Tittle of the Universalist/Unitarian Church wrote in his Houston Chronicle column in the wake of the California gay marriage ruling. He said that homosexual love is usually stronger than heterosexual love.
Granted, Rev. Tittle is from an false denomination, but nevertheless many Christians who are for or against homosexuality sometimes argue the point that one is “better” or superior to the other. The question: is the “hetero vs homo” debate a valid one (or even necessary one) for a Christian? Why or why not? If you’d like to answer, please keep your comments related to the quote and the question, not the gay marriage ruling.
