Brief Study On Homosexuality

  • Introduction:
          -It is an undeniable fact that sexual promiscuity has become a major issue in today's society. In fact, one could liken the content from the released videos in theaters to pornography. All that one has to do is browse the internet, turn on the television set, or pick up any random magazine to see this example of declining moral values. Today, we are focusing on one aspect of this sinful delusion which has been polluting the eyes of mankind for centuries: homosexuality. Unfortunately, the minds of many professing Christians have been manipulated to view homosexual behaviors as morally acceptable, and even normal. This is happening because liberal simpletons have taken drastic measures to pervert already established moral perspectives in our society through the use of their own completely biased and hollow propaganda. One must wonder when others will choose to obey the voice of reason, rather than blind emotionalism? 
  • There Is No Such Thing As "Gay Christianity":
        -The Levitical Law, which functioned as the governing law code for the Jewish nation, in the Old Testament expressly forbade homosexual acts, and prescribed the sentence of death to those who dared to indulge themselves in same-sex actions (Leviticus 18:22-25; 20:13). In fact, God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of sexual immorality, which included homosexuality as a component of the evil corruption (Genesis 19:20; 20:4-11; 13; 24-25). Interestingly, the New Testament writer Jude describes this destructive situation happening as a result of being rebellious against God's divine authority through the partaking of "strange flesh" (Jude 5-8)! The New Testament warns that any person who engages in sexual sin immediately places his or her soul in the danger of eternal hell fire (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 1:9-11). God allows the hearts of those who exchange natural relations for unnatural to become darkened against the truth of the gospel (Romans 1:25-27). The pattern of marriage found in Scripture is always described as a permanent physical union between man and woman (i.e. Genesis 1:18-25; Matthew 19:4-6). Never do we even see God permitting homosexual marriages in the Bible. If the Holy Bible is indeed inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16), and is therefore infallible, then homosexuality should be rejected by all members of Christianity. Any detailed presentation on the biblical teachings regarding homosexuality such as this one should make any liberal attempt to defend homosexuality from the Bible seem as if it is nothing more than what it really is: a pile unscholary rubbish. As the saying goes, "God created Adam and Eve; not Adam and Steve!"
  • Our Bodily Design Refutes Homosexuality:
          -Homosexuality is contrary to human nature. In other words, all people are born heterosexual by design. Our genitals exist for the purpose of procreation. Furthermore, the anus is supposed to function as a bodily exit, not an entrance! Homosexuality is contrary to human nature, let alone able to function like regular married couples. Contrary to what many believe, this life style is not even good for our physiological health. This structure of marriage is like mismatched pieces in the puzzle of life.
  • What About Equal Rights?:
      -If the legalization of same-sex marriage means equal rights for members of the LGBT community, then why can't there be equal rights for the people who want more than one partner in marriage? If we have to redefine the concept of marriage to include two homosexual people, then why would it be wrong for our government to also redefine marriage to include more than one person, or even children? How does this decline in morality stop?
         -Historically, the definition of "marriage" NEVER meant anything other than the union of a male and female for romantic companionship, up UNTIL recently. Is there really any valid justification for this change in definitions?
  • "Love is love?":
         -The above quotation is one of the common slogans that liberals occupy to spread their message of embracing homosexuality as morally acceptable and normal. It is based entirely on the logical fallacy of equivocation, which occurs when two different ideas are equated to have the same meaning. An abnormal psychological obsessive compulsive disorder is completely different than a normal, romantic commitment that is developed through communication and courtship. Homosexuality is not a natural sexual orientation. Slogans generated by liberals such as "love as love" are completely pseudo-scientific in nature. They are only based on emotional comfort, rather than reason.
  • Refuting The "Born Gay" Argument:
         -The testimonials presented by the increasing number of former homosexuals, who now happily have female wives and children, are solid evidence that homosexuality is a choice. In fact, a small, but recognizable, percentage of homosexuals openly admit that they chose to adopt the homosexual lifestyle. 
         -Homosexuality is a behavior, or an action, in the same sense that heterosexual intercourse is. Actions are things that we choose to do. Homosexuality is not in any way analogous to our skin color, height, or gender, which are genetic conditions. Science has confirmed that the primary causes of homosexuality are environment, culture, and freewill (i.e. genetic identity disorder, women getting abused by men, children getting abused by homosexuals, etc.).    
         -Twins are proof against the "born gay" argument because they always have identical genes or DNA. If genetics can cause homosexuality, then both babies must have the same condition. But this is hardly ever the case with twins. Only one in the pair of children tends to have a same-sex attraction. There is no such thing as a "gay gene". "Gay babies" are simply a preposterous and fictitious idea.
        -The gene that can influence alcoholism is known as CREB. Genes can also influence a bad temper, theft, and murder. The point is that being born with the potential to act in a certain manner in no way provides justification for an intrinsically evil behavioral pattern. There is no genetic excuse for homosexuality, any more than there is a genetic excuse for theft or lying. These tendencies, whether they are genetic or not, cannot be justified on the grounds of "being born that way". We can overcome all of these moral difficulties by the use of our reason through the power of our freewill. And why is it that the LGBT community has worked overtime to silence medical research which could help homosexual individuals transition to the heterosexual lifestyle?
  • Addressing The Claim That Homosexuality Occurs In Nature:
          -Just because animals do irrational things to each other does not mean that humans should be engaging in the same activities. The following behaviors are also common among animal species:
                +Raping other animals
                +Eating their young when threatened
                +Eat their sex partner
                +Injure sexual partners
                +Have intercourse with their own children 
              ^The type of argument is simply a form of the fallacy called hasty generalization. If the fact that animals may appear to participate in acts that are similar to those of homosexuals means anything at all, then this statement would also lead to the conclusion that we can justly accept the above described actions of animals occurring in the human race, as well. If this is not true, then on what grounds can this counter-argument be refuted?
          -Human beings know better to not act in the same manner as animals, for they have a much higher intellectual capacity, the ability to reason, and freewill. We should therefore have much higher moral standards. If this pro-homosexual argument proves anything at all, then it only demonstrates that homosexuality itself is completely unnatural for us. This would only reveal the animalistic nature of homosexuals. 
  • Addressing Claims Of "Hate Speech":
          -Merely disagreeing with differing points of view does not simply translate into evidence of "hate speech". Neither is it morally impermissible to tell somebody that he or she is wrong. Is telling children 2+2=4 "HATE"? No, it is telling them the truth. The same is the case when dealing with homosexuality. There are many rational arguments against the incorporation of the homosexual lifestyle into our daily lives, as provided in the article above. We need not set aside our differences for the sake of mere emotional comfort, but rather listen to our reason, as guided by scriptural revelation. The one who tells you the truth is the one who cares. So advocates of these abhorrent customs and practices need to terminate their loud and illogical rampages.
