In an LA Times story picked up by the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, found in the “Living” section, history is about to happen. An unprecedented decision to allow both gay rabbis and same-sex commitment ceremonies is upon us.
In a not so distant future, you may be a gay rabbi but cannot have anal sex “between men”. No women need apply considering this implicit detail – or can they?
“A restriction on gay anal sex, he [Rabbi Elliot Dorff] said, is similar to rules against heterosexual intercourse during menstruation. But requiring celibacy would be, he said, cruel and ‘very un-Jewish.'”
So…if gay anal sex is to hetrosexual intercourse during menstruation and celibacy is to cruelty then…
Confusion is likely to happen.
