>>If homosexulaity is determined by genetics, how then do you account
for those homosexuals who have renounced homosexuality and reformed
their sexual morality.>>
That there are some who have changed their orientation seems to be clear.
That these are a vanishingly small percentage of all who have tried to do so
seems also clear.
People come in all varieties of sexual orientation, including those who
"swing" both ways. I suspect it is among those that we can find persons who
have "reformed." (your word).
"To ascribe behaviour to genetics is
a cheap cop out of morality, plain and simple."
Only if the behaviour is, itself, immoral. I argue that it is not, in
" Where is the justice
in absolving a pedophile of criminal behaviour because it is contesed
that he 'couldn't help it, my genes made me do it'."
None at all. But we are not addressing child abuse here.
" There is no
excuse for criminal behaviour, it is allways a result of moral
transgression or ignorance. But the law doesn't excuse ignorance, nor
should it exclude culpability based on the 'genetics' cop out."
"'God is of purer eyes than to behold evil.' "
Again, I agree. The topic of discussion is, however, not that, but whether
or not all homosexual behavior IS evil. If all HB can be shown clearly to be
a sin, then I will, of course, agree, genetics or no genetics. The materials
on my web site, page 2, section 10, address this question. It is really the
only question of importance to a Christian.
