Scholar Makes Historical, Biblical Case

Rita Nakashima Brock, a protestant theologian, puts forth an excellent argument in favor of same-sex marriage equality in light of the ongoing legal controversy over Proposition 8 in California. Brock is a member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the founder of Faith Voices for the Common Good.

    Thanks for posting the link.

    I especially liked the concluding paragraph where she states “If marriage is good for society, and equality is the ethical basis for marriage, then gender difference is irrelevant”.

    I also liked reading about the notion that most of the marriages within the Bible would be illegal by today’s standards.
