QotD for 17 Oct., 2007

From a column in the Daily Californian on marriage equality...

I suppose all we’re left with is the religious or moral objection. Some churches frown on homosexuality. Well, rock on. I’m not here to tell any faith how to do its job. But, conversely, religion ought not to tell democracy how to do its job. Against gay marriage? All right then, refuse to sanction those unions within your faith community. But religious objections are insufficient to dictate public policy to a pluralistic, secular society. --- Scott Lucas, Why Not Marriage for All?, 15 Oct., 2007
