I read this in Time magazine, or I would have posted a link. Apparently, an orthadox Jewish Rabbi in Isreal is helping gay men find lesbians to marry and have a family with. Both adults want to have a 'normal' family. I assume they do this to fit in and have children. When asked if the partners in these marriages were commited to only each other, the rabbi said that was left up to the couple, he only intruduced them. It told how he was very secrative about it all. At first I was kinda happy. Gays don't really have any rights in that part of the world, and he is 'helping' them. After thinking on it a bit, though, I'm a little offended. If he cares for the people, shouldn't he speak out? Shouldn't he help them be accepted? Do I dare even judge a man who is trying to help? Interestingly, one of the men who help the rabbi set the meetings, was gay and very supportive, but he said he would never get married, as he was 'too gay' to have sex with a woman. So, any veiws on this one?
