We have probably all heard the idea that homosexuality is caused by a genetic trait. If this is true, then this would make the homosexual lifestyle acceptable to many people. The "I was born this way" statement has been key in pushing the homosexual agenda. In the interest of challenging this idea in love and truth, I will discuss my own opinions about this statement:
God is perfect. He would not speak of homosexuality in the scriptures as an abominable sin, if men and women bore no responsibility for it. The myth that people are born homosexual, just doesn't hold water...
Despite the fact that homosexual individuals have existed for thousands of years, there is still no scientific evidence whatsoever for a "homosexual gene". Without a doubt the "it's genetic" theory has been actively promoted by homosexual activists and the media. However this remains simply a theory and no legitimate proof has been found to support it.
What can appear to be the fulfilling of an inherited genetic trait from adolescence through to adulthood, is really only the developing and strengthening of a habit. Some research has identified common elements in the lives of homosexuals, such as: negative relationships with the parent of the same-sex, leading to lack of gender identification, gender non-conformity (sissiness in boys and tomboyish behaviour in girls) that was not addressed by the parent, and a homosexual experience in adolescence. Such results lend support to the idea, that social and/or environmental factors are behind homosexuality.
Can homosexuals change? Do homosexuals lack free will? There is overwhelming evidence that they can change how they respond to their "inclinations" It is clear that homosexual conduct, like heterosexual immorality, is assumed to be something we can choose either to do, or not to do. Otherwise how could God condemn it? All sins assume personal responsibility. Homosexual sin is no exception.
Our modern world media has unfortunately reached the stage, where it portrays the homosexual lifestyle as happy, healthy and stable; therefore making that way of life sound more appealing. The truth about it, is that it is associated with a large number of serious physical and emotional health consequences. The Irish media portrays homosexual "committed relationships" as being commonplace, and very similar to the traditional family structure. The Irish government campaigned for civil partnerships as fast as it could, insisting that they were in great demand. This was a lie. Statistics also show that no more than nine percent of these "relationships" may be said to be stable. Is it for this tiny number that we are willing to violate the law of God?
I have commented here before, that large numbers of homosexuals can then go on to molest children. It is not hard to conclude that mentally unstable people, who give in to their own unnatural lusts towards another person of the same sex, would perhaps be also willing to also satisfy their unnatural and perverted lusts towards children. How is stating "I was born a homosexual" any different to saying, "I have a sexual interest in children...but don't hate me, I was born this way"? This of course is completely illogical.
Stop being brain-washed by a world who wants you to tolerate, promote and participate in this wickedness. "I was born this way" is a lie.
