America seems to be divided into people who believe that homosexuality is a learned behavior and those that believe that homosexuals are born that way. I believe that homosexuality is learned behavior. It can be learned at a very young age. Before we even know that we are in this world. It can be a wiring problem but I have a theory that the father is a heavy influence in regard to male homosexuality. He may be absent from a child's life either physically, or emotionally. The father may be dominated by the wife or partner. The male child could have a very dominant single mother. I think these factors are important, and as a result a male can only relate to a another male in a sexual way. In regard to lesbians I think it can also be related to the father. The father is abusive physically or verbally to the mother, child or both. It could be a boyfriend or stepfather not related to child but who is abusive in some way. There is usually a man in the woodpile somewhere who has created a negative male image to the female child. It can also be the result of repeated failed relationships with men. There are many effeminate homosexual men but there are also effeminate straight men. There are very masculine homosexual men. Rock Hudson and Ernst Rohm are examples. Rohm was Hitler's leader of the SA Brown Shirts. There are mannish women who are lesbian and mannish women who are straight. Of course there are also beautiful women who are lesbian. From a spiritual perspective I believe in the concept of free will. I know what the Bible says about homosexuality and it is not necessary to repeat it here. Homosexuality is only one of many sins that will lead to spiritual death if a person does not repent and follow Christ's plan of salvation. I do not believe that God would allow someone to be born a homosexual and then destroy them in Lake of Fire. This would not be a merciful and just God. Empirically you can prove a person's sex or race but no one has isolated a homosexual gene to prove that someone is born a homosexual. For this reason I do not believe you can claim a behavior as a protected class under the 14th Amendment's equal protection clause. By doing this we open the door for pedophiles to be a protected class. They can make the same argument as a homosexual? For the sake of argument let's assume for a moment that scientists could isolate a homosexual gene. How many mothers would carry a child to full term if they knew that they were going to give birth to a homosexual? Who would be more likely to abort a homosexual child? Someone who is pro-choice or pro-life? With all the problems associated with homosexuality such as depression and suicide wouldn't you think that scientists would want to weed that gene out of existence by bio-engineering? America is confused today about homosexuality and such issues as transgender for various reasons. We have psycho babble that passes for science. There is a culture war going on. Peer group pressure is very powerful. Then there is the spiritual war. Ephesians 6:12 King James Version (KJV) 12. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Never fear, we know how this story ends.
