Civil marriage is not about Jesus

Dan Rodricks recently asked "What would Jesus do?'' in reference to same sex unions, quoting scripture and concluding that he would support them ("Same-sex unions: What would Jesus do?" Oct. 25). Reader Sharon A. Knotts, also quoting scripture, came to the opposite conclusion in her letter ("Jesus would have opposed same-sex marriage," Oct. 30).

Really though, I don't care what Jesus would think of gay marriage. I don't care if he'd approve. I don't care if he'd disapprove. You see I'm not Christian, so what I care about is people who want the government to care what Jesus would think.
