NJ’s State Sen. Loretta Weinberg Actually Gets Judaism’s Marriage Problem

I know that most of our Orthodox Rabbis and some of our political leaders believe that same sex unions are against G-d’s law. But I also know that many others believe that we are born into our sexual identity and that love and commitment to another human being should be cherished, not isolated. That making a public commitment to another person should be celebrated and enjoyed on our simcha pages. I look forward to these differences being acknowledged, but most important accepted, so that we can live comfortably within our religious institutions while recognizing who each of us really is as a distinct human being.

—New Jersey’s Democratic State Sen. Loretta Weinberg, who’s the lead sponsor of the state’s civil union bill, in a pretty fantastic op-ed
