Hows this for twist on things?.


http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/p...ll=chi-news-hed&ctrack=1&cset=true

"NEW YORK -- The president of the leading Southern Baptist seminary has incurred sharp attacks from the left and right by suggesting that a biological basis for homosexuality may be proven, and that prenatal treatment to reverse gay orientation would be biblically justified.

Rev. R. Albert Mohler Jr., one of the country's pre-eminent evangelical leaders, acknowledged he irked many fellow conservatives with a blog article this month saying scientific research "points to some level of biological causation" for homosexuality"

Hmmm.... It is nice to hear that he recognizes a biological component of homosexuality. I disagree with using the Bible to justify "medical treatment." When religion has been used as science it generally screws it up.

Hell no.

I've ALWAYS maintained that the undeniable confirmation of genetically-influenced homosexual orientation could cause perhaps the biggest paradigm shift in recent generations: can you think of a faster way to turn (neo)Conservatives pro-Choice and Liberals/Progressives pro-Life, than the ability to discover whether or not a fetus is highly likely to turn out gay????

One step forward that he admits babies are born that way, but two steps backwards that he considers homosexuality a "birth defect" that should be "cured" in utero.

Furthermore, this opens a whole 'nuther can of worms: designer babies. Want a whole house full of tall, blond, athletic kids even though you and your wife are short, dark-haired, and bookish? Just sign on the dotted line! Want to eradicate that pesky recessive red-haired gene that manifests in your family every few generations? Consider it gone!

Alvin Toffler and George Orwell ain't seen nuthin' yet.

it's quite simple really. just place the baby on the floor and a bible about 10 feet away.

if the baby crawls to the bible, then it is a perfect child of god's work.

if the baby crawls away from the bible ... it is a spawn of satan!

actually this whole thing got me thinking..

What if it is proven it is to be genetic. Would there be a blood test to determing if you are gay or not? Would wives-to-bes ask their groom to take a test before marriage?..

How would such a test it be treated as society? What would it do to married men who have children and wives?

Interesting movie on the subject:

The Twilight of the Golds (1997) (TV)

Suzanne Stein has a genetic analysis done on her unborn child, she discovers that although she has a healthy baby, the child will most likely be born gay, like her brother, David. She must decide whether to keep the child, or to have an abortion. Her family enters a crisis about love and acceptance as she makes this difficult choice.

Maybe instead of finding a 'cure' for homosexuality, how about finding a cure for hate.

If those brainwashed idiots spent as much time on a ludicrous thing as "curing" homosexuality as they should be on "fixing" divorce and infedelity in marriages, they would maybe (and I use maybe lightly) get more respect.

Instead they go after their favorite sin, the one they are least likely to commit.

five out of five baptist divorcees *totally* wish that gays would stop undermining christian values.

 checkmark  Agree 100%. what was that saying about Let him without sin cast the first stone or something.? I'm sure the bible said nothing about preaching such hate....
