On August 6, 2003 Tech MIT printed an editorial by Shankar Mukherji stating that "as a religious person, I am deeply offended at the thought that such an inspirational part of my life could be hijacked for such a destructive, mean-spirited purpose. As a practising Hindu, a religion that represents nearly one-sixth of humanity, I can humbly assert that God couldn’t care less about the gender of one’s spouse, only that the union is one founded in love and leads to the betterment of both souls. It would be a crime if someone else’s views on spirituality, codified in the Constitution, were allowed to trump my (or anyone else’s) very personally held religious mores."
