We are all human and divine

I was shocked and surprised that the May 16 letter from a pagan voice was in favor of Amendment One on the grounds that heterosexual relationships are natural and homosexuality is unnatural [ “A Pagan Voice For Amendment One,” Xpress].

Love itself, the defining force of our human being, is the most natural thing of all. Committed, kind, genuine love between two human beings is one if the best things we small humans can do to represent what is divine in each of us.
The pagan way involves acceptance of the beings around you, and an ability to see the divine within each of them.

We are all masculine and feminine. We are all human and divine.
Joseph Jenkins, may your heart be opened to a new way of seeing this issue. As is often spoken in pagan circles, my religion is kindness. There is a place for you at my table.
