Can anyone refer me to a well-reasoned and well-referenced
intellectual/moral argument in opposition to gay marriage and, perhaps,
to homosexuality in general. No screeds or strictly religious arguments,
please. Many thanks. RP

	Hi Karey:
	You might be interested in Harold Bloom's contention that the
Hebrew pronouns which refer to God in the original Old Testament are
genderless.  Since I don't read Hebrew, I can't check this, but I do
know that Milton also agrees with you.  Not bad company to be in.  And
we may as well throw in Plato's SYMPOSIUM as another argument that
precedes yours.

		I think our spirits/souls ultimately transcend gender --
God has no genitals (although we traditionally and misleadingly refer to
"Him" as a "He," gender is by definition a physical trait and God is not
physical - only Jesus).
