Are People Born Gay?
Some people do not believe that anyone is born gay. Scientists even say, there is no scientifically accepted evidence proving that homosexuals are born gay. Eventhough scientists do not believe there is any scientific evidence that people are born gay, they believe many homosexuals believe they were in fact born gay. Since homosexuals believe they were born this way, they believe this is normal, therefore they do not have to feel any personal responsibility for the way they live their life.
Most people that believe in the Bible believe that homosexuality is wrong and no one is born this way. They believe that if scientists one day prove that homosexuality is biological influenced, it is still wrong and engaging in homosexual acts is immoral. According to the Bible, heterosexuals are commanded to abstain from sex unless we are married. Therefore, eventhough many homosexuals believe they were born gay, they also have the capability to abstain from their desires. This leads me to a question. If homosexuals are legally married according to our laws, is engaging in homosexual acts between the two married partners still wrong?
After listening to all the different views about whether people are born gay or not, I still do not know what to think. I grew up with two people, one two years older than I am and the other a year younger than I am, both were either born gay or they got that way soon after they were born. They were playing with dolls, in playhouses, wearing girl clothes and doing everything that girls do, while we were playing marbles and ball.
This is something that really confused me about these guys. One of them remained openly gay until his death, but the other, to the best of my knowledge, made a complete turnaround in his life. After he grew into an adult and moved from his hometown, he got married to a woman and he and his wife had two children before his death. How did he manage to make this transition in his life if he was born gay? Maybe he was born bisexual instead of homosexual, but this leads me to another question. Do you believe people are born bisexual?
