Countering the Family Values Monopoly

By David H. Ellenson

Jewish Journal, February 5, 2004

Rabbi David Ellenson, President of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion stakes out a position in opposition to religious literalists of all faiths prone to claiming they are "speaking on behalf of religion" regarding issues concerning gay and lesbian rights. Rabbi Ellenson discusses both biblical and Talmudic passages and builds the case for advocating "full rights be extended to lesbians and gays."
