People with opinions

REGION

Rabbi Harold Kushner of Natick, author of "When Bad Things Happen to Good People," weighs in on the gay marriage debate today in a Letter to the Editor.

"I would hope that even people who are opposed to homosexual behavior on moral or religious grounds will be able to coexist with people who differ from them, as people morally opposed to drinking have learned to tolerate the legal sale of alcohol and people disgusted by rap music manage to keep their distance from it without depriving others of the right to listen," Kushner writes.

In other letters, Mark Kelleher of Natick argues that Christy Mihos is the only local politician to be trusted on Big Dig safety issues. James H. Barron of Newton also voices his opinion on the Big Dig controversy.
