Letter: Celebration of love was a joy to witness

Celebration of love was a joy to witness

In response to the letter criticizing gay marriage, I believe that gay people are born that way. I just attended my first gay wedding, which by the way involved my sister and her partner of 10 years. It was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever attended. Seeing two people who have waited for this day to celebrate their love for one another is by far the most hopeful of unions I have had the pleasure to attend.

Didn’t Jesus say to “love one another as I have loved you”? Maybe this writer needs to brush up on his catechism and read up on the statistics of heterosexual divorce rates. Many people are leaving the Catholic Church because of the closed-minded rhetoric.
