[ Hello ASA listers -- this is my first post. I am an architect living (and
sometimes working) in Houston, TX --ST ]
Some seem to say, "If God created me that way, then it can't be sinful to
act naturally." I would suggest there is biblical support for absolute
morality; relative morality is a slippery slope.
By analogy, if one is a "natural born" pederast or zooerast, we would have
much less compunction for condemning that behavior.
Suppose I have a predisposition to act immorally (and who doesn't?) -- the
sin is not found in the temptation, it becomes sin when we act upon it, or
even dwell on it (Mt. 5:28).
We don't delude ourselves into thinking that we have a God-given license to
act upon any natural impulse, so why do we forget this with regard to
sexuality? Is a sexual partner an "inalienable right?"
