Christianity --Youth Issues/homosexuality
How is it that Christians claim homosexuality is a choice? Now I'm not going to review the small mountain of evidence that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that homosexuality is inborn (since Christians don't believe in science. But if you're curious google gay brain). Anyway, consider your own sexual responses. Let's say you have a sexual response every time you see a woman with a red hair (or insert your preference here). Do you consciously choose to have an erection when you see a woman you consider attractive? Then why do you think it's different for homosexuals? BTW I myself am not gay, but I do support gay rights.
I wish I could answer you, Charles, but I can't. I'm in 100% agreement with you that homosexuality is not a choice. However, that being said, I do believe that SOME people (very few, but I have no research to prove this) who are bisexual choose a gay lifestyle.
I saw a study a long time ago that showed that very few people are completely 100% heterosexual, but that it was a bell curve skewed way over to the heterosexual side. This means that most people are just a "little bit" bi-sexual.
I have no idea why people continue to think it's a choice. It is for some, but the vast majority it is in their DNA. As a youth minister, I'm often in a position to speak with parents and others about homosexuality, and a lot of people just don't get it.
I lived with a gay guy for about a year when I was in the Army away from my wife. He and I became close friends, and I learned a lot about "gayness". He struggled with it. Even had a female fiancee. I learned from him. I've also learned from about a half dozen or so gay and bisexual students I've had over the years.
There's only 1 thing that I have to disagree with. Most Christians DO believe in science. I know several scientists, and they are all Christians. I myself have a BS and MS degree, so I guess you could call me a scientist, too.
Not sure I answered your question, but I would appreciate your feedback. Please take time to rate my answer.
PS How did you know I liked red-heads?
