    Dr. Joseph Thompson of the University of Alaska Fairbanks gave a lecture last Friday on the morality of same sex marriage. He out lined the case against gay marriage, and went through the charges one by one, dismissing them.

    Same sex marriage, Thompson argued, passed all moral tests: it could not be proved that it would harm anything or anyone: and furthermore, that morality in a secular country must be divorced from religion. (pun intended) Dr. Thompson argued that in fact it was unjustified and unjustifiable to create such an arbitrary qualification in marriage such as heterosexuality.

    I thought it was a good lecture, and if anyone ever asks you why they should allow gay marriage, Dr. Thompson gives some good points to bring up.

    Fun nostalgia factor, too -- I had classes in that very same auditorium nearly every single day for four years of college eons ago.
