Thought for the Day, #17

'In our day new light is breaking forth from scripture, from science, and from our own spiritual experience. I think it is saying, "Let us do away with sexual orientation as a moral category.  Morality has to do with behavior, not wiring."'

(From Rev. Dr. H. Stephen Shoemaker, "Homosexuality, the Bible, and Us," Crisis:  40 Stories Revealing the Personal, Social, and Religious Pain and Trauma of Growing Up Gay in America, Mitchell Gold, ed., with Mindy Drucker, p. 333.)

    "It is a shame that morality gets bundled up with religion. Morality is a matter of doing what's right. And one thing's for sure, homosexuality has never hurt another human being."

    Thanks for your comment.
