  •  But--being gay is genetic. They are born that way. (14+ / 0-)

    And if they are, and if there is a genetic component, and research has shown that hundreds of animal species also have genetic homosexuals, does it not also logically follow that God created them as well? And Why would God create something He does not love and would not want to be with Him? And if gay people cannot change because it is genetic, why try to force that change to try to please a God that made them who they are? Why would God make them that way only to say to them: "I made you the way you are but you are an abomination and you are not going to be with me. What kind of cruel joke is that?"

    •  Plenty of bigots believe in the "gay gene" too (0+ / 0-)

      ...as a "built-in" reason to justify torturing LGBT Americans (on the "can't 'cure', so change by force" creedo).

      I'd say the evidence for such a gene is just not there — an identical twin may be LGBT & his/her sibling not, for example — but that human sexuality is far more complex than American politicians, whether bigot or gliberal, want it to be.

      At any rate, the best we can do is adjust the laws so that the government is finally taken out of the business of loking up people's skirts (&, of course, push the haters to the fringe where they belong).
