Faith & Marriage

"As a rabbi, as a religious person, I look at this issue and think: if God made gays and lesbians the way they are, then they, too, are created in the image of God. And if God said it is not good for a human being - any human being - to be alone, then who am I, and who are we as a human society, to tell them to live alone, or to live a lie. As a rabbi, as a person of faith, I believe it is a God-given right for each one of us to make a family with whomever we choose."

Rabbi Hillel Katzir, Temple Shalom, Auburn

I believe in marriage. Good marriages benefit the entire community. Legal marriage promotes family stability and cohesiveness.

We attend church and have always lived according to the bible. Specifically, by being authentic and knowing that the truth would set us free.

"What Jesus teaches is love – inclusive, non-judgmental love. Love which doesn’t always understand, but which loves anyway… Jesus led a life of doing justice. We are called to do the same."
