It's a perversion that some people succumb to.
The radicals push the bogus gay gene theory and we have GLSEN in the schools telling kids it's okay to be gay and experimentation is a good thing. Today's kids are messed up enough so why push this bogus science on them as if it's a fact? It shouldn't happen. Thus my involvement with the issue.
Just passing through -wish I had some time to spare to stay awhile and assist in fending off the pro homosexual sex leftist cheerleaders LOL
They're called metrosexuals lol(or John Edwards.)
Hey stranger! Good to hear from you.
Indeed. So typical of the radicals pushing the homosexual agenda.
John who? :-)
great, great article
great post, sin is a trap, and the devil is an expert at setting them. No one is above sin, the possibility exists for everyone to go down the wrong path.
Patently false. It especially flies in the face of the evidence presented on this thread and many others.
"sexual orientation is genetically influenced but not hardwired by DNA, and that whatever genes are involved represent predispositions, not predeterminations"Seems like most peeps here just read right past that.....LOL.
No, it has been discussed and agreed upon by most that some people have greater tolerances than others in certain areas. Sexuality being one of them.
Indeed it has. What some people try to imply is the predisposition causes same-sex attraction. It doesn't, and when somebody makes that argument they're telling us they don't know what they're talking about.
Environment is key. It is truly sad that some people infer same-sex attraction from certain traits or gifts. These same traits or gifts are simply what they are, traits and gifts, and imply nothing else.
Thanks for bumping the thread my friend as this is a topic that need to be discussed by all.
Exactly. There is no evidence to prove somebody is homosexual other than somebody making such a claim. Anybody can claim to be a homosexual and the homosexual enablers wouldn't doubt the claim. Yet those same homosexual enablers are the first to doubt claims made by ex-gays, and that demonstrates a double standard by the homosexual enablers.
Was that a Breck commercial song?
"Homersexuallity is a behavior. Anybody not agree with that? " I agree. Homosexuality is based on an act. You can't prove that you are a homosexual beyond stating such. Until you engage in the act."
There are people who have never had sex but who know that if they did engage in sexual acts it would be with the opposite sex. They are heterosexual without the act. Likewise there are people who have never had sex but know that they are attracted to the same sex: some priests, nuns and monks who stay true to their vows of sexual abstinence might be an example.
Most people know before they engage in sexual behavior whether they are gay or straight.
He should contact Salman Rushdie and get some advice on surviving a Fatwah. He's gonna need it.
Research suggests that social and psychological factors are strongly influential. Examples include problems in early family relationships, sexual seduction, and sense of inadequacy with same-sex peers, with resulting disturbance in gender identity. Society can also influence a sexually questioning youth when it encourages gay self-labeling.
The keys to change are desire, persistence, and a willingness to investigate the conscious and unconscious conflicts from which the condition originated. Change comes slowly, usually over several years. Clients learn how to meet their needs for same-sex nurturance and affirmation without eroticizing the relationship. As they grow into their heterosexual potential, men and women typically experience a deeper and fuller sense of themselves as male or female.
If some homosexuals do not wish to change, that is their choice, yet it is profoundly sad that gay-rights activists struggle against the right-to-treatment for other homosexuals who yearn for freedom from their attractions.
A 1992 study in Pediatrics found that 25.9% of 12-year-olds are uncertain if they are gay or straight. The teen years are critical to the question of self-labeling, so the facts must be presented in our schools in a fair and balanced manner.
I think it's on a 'sex-linked' gene!
This is a great article considering the source. Yet people still try to deny. It is quite sad.
What some people try to imply is the predisposition causes same-sex attraction.
Yeah they do, but what attraction is etched at birth/conception? NONE. Attraction is learned. People DEVELOP these odd fetishes based on experience and environment, to state otherwise is to ignore your own past.
Sigh, indeed... some people will never learn.
You can't prove that you are a homosexual beyond stating such. Until you engage in the act
I stated the above because the only "proof" you have of being gay is doing sexually gay things. When a fella kisses on another fella, we take him at his word that he is gay. However, that same fella realizes he has been living a dangerous life and wants to change HIS actions and then does and claims he is ex-gay(hetero; as all of humanity is) he is not given the same benefit of belief. It is a hypocritical double standard.
Most people know before they engage in sexual behavior whether they are gay or straight. Everyone is a heterosexual, we were designed to be such. There is only one choice until someone, through a series of events, creates the second choice.
It is very sad, I can think back when I was a kid and remember what was happening. Now as I'm older I treat kids as individuals, just cause he is a little effeminate does not make him gay. It is more likely that if his is razzed his whole life about being gay that some person who has already given in to that lifestyle will convince him he is. And again, there are spiritual forces that are attacking people all the time trying to convince them to turn from God. God made that kid that way and his soft spoken nature suits him just fine and is exactly what God intended.
