In the March issue, now in the mail to subscribers, we published a translation of a paper by the Chief Rabbi of France, Gilles Bernheim, opposing the French government’s move to legalize same-sex marriage (not that the government listened). I’ll spare you the pr language, but he does speak of the subject in a different way and from a significantly different point of view than we are used to hearing here. We hope you’ll find it useful.

Check thou it out!

  • I read it and am writing about it at The Personalist Project–very, very worthwhile! Some good lines:
    “What is at stake is the risk of irreversibly scrambling genealogies, as well as legal and social statuses (the child-as-subject becoming child-as-object…” and
    “An institution fraught with legal, cultural, and symbolic significance would be replaced by a de-sexed legal category…” and
    “The child is not an object of rights but a subject of rights. To speak of a ‘right to a child’ instrumentalizes and objectivizes the child. In the current debate, the child as a person, as a subject, is absent in the arguments of those who demand adoption for homosexual couples.”
    Thank you, David Mills, for publishing it and Mark, for linking to it!
