Teshuvah

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.
