Gays OK But Cant Get Any Play :(

So the new revelation of the Conservative Movement is the acceptance of Homosexuals into Rabbinic institutions and the ability for Conservative Rabbis to officiate at same sex marriages. Pretty spiffy, huh?

But there's a catch ...

While Homosexual marriage is now kosher, ANAL SEX is now UNKOSHER.

This rule not only applies to homosexuals but also to all members of the tribe (who affiliate conservatively, of course) That is, you can have a felatio free-for-all with all your facebook friends, but a homosexual couple is prohibited from having anal intimacy.

Is this an issue we can stand behind? Or is it just a pain in the ass?

Two things to consider ...
1. Homosexual marriage and Patrilineal Descent
2. Homosexual marriage and the Union Ceremony

Much Love

A couple things for starters... since when was the term "homosexual" capitalized? And since when was anal sex between men ever kosher in Judaism? They're not rhetorical questions, btw.

I capitalized homosexual in order to emphasize tone of voice, draw emphasis/attention.

Anal sex has never been kosher, but it has become somewhat popular among assimilated or modern sexually active Jewish young people. The prohibition of anal sex was to directly draw a distinction between homosexuality as a paganistic sexualized serial heretical act and a more modern perspective of homosexuality as a committed loving monogamous intimate relationship between two people.

Btw, here is some of Jewschool's coverage from the last few months regarding this and related issues:

One, one and a half, two, three, four, five (this one was very interesting... the Masorti Movement declared it would not hold by the Conservative Movement's decision).

Anyway, that should suffice for those who are interested.
