If someone was to use the Sikh concept of universal brotherhood or familyhood to justify gay relationships and gay marriages from a Sikh perspective, it would be like using universal brotherhood to justify the crimes of criminals, or social wrongs of people in society? The brief I had was to write a short article outlining my coming out and reaction from the community. If more and more Sikhs share the same thoughts as Gurdial Singh in terms of not being homophobic and more acceptingthen I believe same-sex marriages within a Gurdwara will soon follow.

A woman and a man can be the perfect couple but also can two men or two woman. Duality — the method through which we begin to divide the word into distinctions — is the root cause of ego and therefore the root cause of human suffering.
