I would suggest that the homosexual community has suffered tremendous hardship in the past and that society in general should attempt to accomadate their concerns. The big issues as I see it are marriage and children.
I would propose an institution called gayriage that would encompasses all the rights of marriage including monogamous expectation,for better or worse etc. That would provide equality under the law, and preserve the concept of marriage as an uniquely hetero institution that originally was religion based.
I believe all adults should have the right to bear children. But I also believe that all children should have the expectation of a male and female parent. I would have great difficulty if the state did not take that into account. Notwithstanding lesbian couples who are able to give birth by various means, the issue here is the state approving adoptions. I would suggest that homosexual couples secure a legal arrangement with a person of the opposite sex , for the purpose of parenting. Such a role could provide difficulties, but no more than divorce situations as we see them today.
Is there common ground here? Or are christians and homosexuals so far apart like Palestinians and Israelis.
