Opposing Homosexuality is not Bigotry

The following comments of mine were posted by someone on Facebook:

“The homosexual, transgender, bi-sexual, and whatever-sexual movement works overtime to hitch its cart to the civil rights horse. . . . Sexual behavior cannot be compared to the struggle of blacks to secure full civil rights. . . . Being black is not a behavior trait. Homosexuality is. Homosexuality is what a person does.”

“Sexual orientation is no more a choice than skin color. No one chooses their sexual orientation. Even if it was a choice it’s not a choice that infringes upon the rights of others. Regardless of what you think about comparisons made in the media, the discrimination is counterproductive and should stop.”

Tell that to the baker who was sued for not making a cake for a homosexual wedding or the ordinance in Houston, Texas, where now men can use the women’s bathrooms.

Pedophiles argue that they were born with an orientation to have sex with children. They claim they can’t help themselves because of their orientation. In addition, there is no confirmed evidence that homosexuality is a genetically innate orientation.

Peter Tatchell, an Australian-born British homosexual activist, argues that “there is a major problem with gay gene theory, and with all theories that posit the biological programming of sexual orientation. If heterosexuality and homosexuality are, indeed, genetically predetermined (and therefore mutually exclusive and unchangeable), how do we explain bisexuality or people who, suddenly in mid-life, switch from heterosexuality to homosexuality (or vice versa)? We can’t.”

The Human Genome Project did not identify a homosexual gene. Evan S. Balaban, a neurobiologist at the Neurosciences Institute in San Diego, noted that “the search for the biological underpinnings of complex human traits has a sorry history of late. In recent years, researchers and the media have proclaimed the ‘discovery’ of genes linked to alcoholism and mental illness as well as to homosexuality. None of the claims . . . has been confirmed.”

But for the sake of argument, even if homosexuality had a genetic cause, it does not mean that the behavior is either normal or moral. Consider the following:
