Civil marriage is not about Jesus

November 01, 2012

Dan Rodricks recently asked "What would Jesus do?'' in reference to same sex unions, quoting scripture and concluding that he would support them ("Same-sex unions: What would Jesus do?" Oct. 25). Reader Sharon A. Knotts, also quoting scripture, came to the opposite conclusion in her letter ("Jesus would have opposed same-sex marriage," Oct. 30).

Really though, I don't care what Jesus would think of gay marriage. I don't care if he'd approve. I don't care if he'd disapprove. You see I'm not Christian, so what I care about is people who want the government to care what Jesus would think.
