    A good statement of the question -- or issue. I'd add "adult," "long-term"
    and "loving" to the necessary qualifications you list.

    You mention that you have not yet taken a personal position on this. I hope
    you will look at at least some of the materials and links on the subject on
    my website (page 2, section 10). Both sides are represented fairly, I think.
    I found the debate between Tony Compolo, whom I greatly respect, and his
    good wife particularly instructive.
