JUDAISM AND HOMOSEXUALITY:
CONSERVATIVE JUDAISM POSITIONS
As in Christianity, the various Jewish traditions are divided along
conservative - liberal lines. Reform Judaism, the largest and one of the most
liberal traditions, accept the homosexual orientation itself as morally neutral.
Orthodox Judaism consider all homosexual behavior as inherently sinful, even
when it occurs within a loving, committed relationship. The mainline tradition,
represented by Conservative Judaism is experiencing an internal conflict over
homosexuality -- much like the mainline denominations in Christianity.
