Let's see if I got this right.. the author writes: "Yes to respect for gay people as human beings and to equal rights for gay people. But a definite no to equal moral status for same-sex couples..." So, you are taking a page out of George Orwell's "1984"? All people are created equal but some are more equal to others? Perhaps it would be better if the author kept his moral inequalities in his bedroom instead of flagrantly and extravagantly displaying his moral disdain for gay people in public. Oh and by the way, this weekend's Gay Parade thru Amsterdam's canals, which for the first time included a Gay Jewish boat, was a wonderful and affirmative display of legal and moral equivalency with boats from almost all political parties, major employers, the police, the military and yes, some entertaining and extravagant yet tasteful displays of sexuality.
