I Was Just Thinking

Now here's an interesting question.

We all know that the claim is that people who are "homosexual" and suffer from gender dysphoria are born that way. I mean, the very word "homosexual" these days does not mean "same-sex sexual relations", but an actual nature, an inborn condition. It's not a choice; it's a state of being. Further, this idea is the primary basis for the whole "marriage equality" campaign wrought by the LGBT and their minions. "If we're born this way, you must give us our rights!" So the idea is if people are "born this way", whatever way that is, then we can draw a few conclusions. One is if it's not their choice; it's their nature. Another is that, as it's their nature, "God made me this way." And from that, "If God made me this way, it must be good." From all this, then, it isn't merely wrong to disagree and tolerate. We must embrace all this same-sex and trans-sex stuff as good, from God, part of their natures. "And God said it was good."

All that to get to my question. If "born this way" means "everyone must embrace those who are born a particular way", what about the rest of us? What about the kid that seems to be born mean? His brothers and sisters aren't doing it. His parents aren't doing it. He just appears to be born with this inate enjoyment of torturing small animals. And that grows. Shouldn't we embrace that? No, of course not. So what about the typical male? If we're born this way, why does our society spend so much time decrying our testosterone and our rough play and our maleness? I've seen boys, lacking toy guns because their parents were opposed to violence, pick up sticks to mimic guns to play with. They were being taught to be more feminine, more girlish, more "user friendly". They acted like little boys ... apparently from their nature. Why does our society not have to embrace that? Why is it that we need to embrace the aberrations, the outliers, the oddities, but we are hard at work at changing the normal? We never urge girls to "get in touch with your masculine side". Why do we urge boys to do the opposite? Why is it that men, "born this way", are the "enemy"?

Is this not a serious inconsistency in our society with its "born this way" line of thinking?

My point has always been that we are all born with an "orientation" towards sin. While some sins are things we do often without thinking (or the thinking itself is a sin), one has to actually really seek to sin for some things -- i.e. take deliberate, aforethought action.

So the "homosexual" never has to have sex, no one is forcing them to have sex - sexual relations are always a deliberate choice.

The adulterer doesn't have to commit adultery - no one is forcing them to do so, but they make deliberate choice.

So I don't care what one's "orientation" they were born with, they don't have to act on it.

Funny how the "homosexual" bunch don't accept the same idea for those claiming to be born with an orientation to have sex with 6-year-olds; for the most part (except for perhaps NAMBLA supporters) they would be horrified at the thought of a man having sex with a 6-yr-old, but hey, if they are born that way, what choice do they have? What's good for the goose.....

Yes, exactly. They say, "It's not a choice." I say, "You choose what to do with it."

I know it looks like they hold a double standard ("Embrace those who are 'born that way' unless it's something we don't like"), but I think their standard is not a double standard. It is, "I will be like the Most High."

When you've set yourself up as the LGIC, (little god in charge) like the LGBTEXOQVCY, and you've been able to muster enough power to have the laws changed to reflect your own capricious whims, then you get to decide when being born that way is good, and when it is not to be tolerated. Do you remember that old song? "Look at the new boss, same as the old boss?"

Stan said...

No, I don't remember that song. Sing a few bars.

Here it is. I'm sure you've heard it. And I think it applies.
