Gay marriage debate misread

Published 21/12/2012 | 08:00

Canon Keith Hugo (Write Back, December 17) writes that "the intended victims in Sodom were angels, which makes it irrelevant to any discussion about same-sex human relations". However, the debate on gay marriage is based on a misreading of Leviticus (18: 22), which only prohibits actual sexual relations between males.
