Who we love is a subject of hate. There is fear that acceptance of same-sex marriage and of LGBT folk would mean "anything goes," that we have become disconnected from any moral constraints whatsoever. Not in the least! The prospect of a society of LGBT acceptance offers possibilities for clearer, more wholesome, more effective sexual ethics for us…
 
Anti-immigrant sentiment has been growing in the US. Let us wonder together what became of our nation's vaunted Judeo-Christian heritage ("You shall notoppress a resident alien; you know the heart of an alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt" - Exodus 23:9) -- and what became of our secular heritage of liberty ("Send me your tired, your po…
