They are the doctors who are charged with giving care to perhaps the most fragile part of a human being -- the personality.Whatever you think of the specifics of Freudian theory or the efficacy of psychoanalysis, the fact remains that psychiatrists develop an extraordinary relationship with their patients. The abuse of that relationship would appear to constitute one of the more heinous forms of medical malpractice.Tonight's edition of "Frontline" examines just such a case. "My Doctor, My Lover," which will be on Maryland Public Television, channels 22 and 67, at 9 o'clock, is about a psychiatrist who entered into a romantic, sexual relationship with one of his patients, a woman who had gone to this doctor because of her intense feeling of guilt and depression about a previous extra-marital affair.

Dan Rodricks ' assertion that there are no rational arguments against same-sex marriage is unfounded ("Same-sex marriage foe: irrational fear," Sept. 11). In fact, there are logical arguments both for and against same-sex marriage, but they differ in their premises. The argument against same-sex marriage assumes that marriage is primarily oriented toward the generation and upbringing of children. Since homosexual relationships are inherently incapable of generating children, they cannot be the basis for marriage.

Dan Rodricks ("Same sex unions: What would Jesus do?" Oct. 25) ventured all over the map in trying to discredit the Christian view about homosexuality. First, he tried to imply that the Christian view is that homosexuals should be put to death. I don't know of any Christians who think homosexuals should be put to death. Although Dan was all over the map concerning Christianity, lets just stick to the subject, homosexuality and same-sex unions. I don't know of a single major religion that condones sexual relations between two men or two women.
