"In terms of civil rights
discrimination, it is wrong to treat sexual orientation like race. Race
is a condition beyond the individual's control. Sexual orientation involves
behavior especially in response to passion. If we equate sexual orientation
and race, we are saying that sexual behavior is beyond the Individual's
control and moral will. We cannot embrace such an understanding of civil
rights without denying the human moral capacity, and with it the fitness
of human beings for life in a free society."
