So the biggest argument for the homosexuals is that we can't discriminate because they were "born that way". I put that in quotes because scientifically speaking, that has not been proven. And until it is, it is only a THEORY. And at this point, there is little supporting evidence.
But ultimately, it is the last and final word against the barage of anti-homosexual agendas. You can't hate someone for being born a certain way. You can't argue against their right to do ANYTHING because being genetically predisposed... they didn't CHOSE it. They are victims of their sexuality... and in the most extreme sense, if they could change it and NOT be bullied and badgered, they would. They compare it to skin color, ethnicity and a slew of other things people simply can't help... so our country needed to just learn to accept.
But I have run into my share of homosexual friends and family who will openly admit that they were not "born that way". They chose it. My sister-in-law, for example, will tell you she's a proud lesbian. She says she had searched for good realtionships with men throughout her entire life and found it wanting. Then, she deployed, met a woman, and all of that changed. The relationship aspect is what is most attracting to her. She tends to be a more masculine woman, who either needs an EXTREMELY masculine man, or a femenine man. She doesn't want either of those. So she dates women. Feminine women. She will tell you, it was entirely a choice. But it's a lifestyle she is happy with. And she will ALSO tell you that should the right man come along, and fit her needs, she wouldn't say no. She's not bisexual, she is no longer LOOKING for a man to fit her needs... she's just a lesbian by choice.
So does that make her less of a lesbian? Does that make her "in denial" of who she really was from birth? Does that mean HER rights are not the same as someone "born that way"?
I personally have the UTMOST respect for her CHOOSING to live a life that is against the grain and looked down upon by so many. By standing up for how she feels and by saying "I don't care what you think". But it certainly makes me wonder how many homosexuals are using "I was born this way" as their reason, when really, they can recall making a choice... or they know they made a choice but they'll act like it was a lifestyle of denial before self-realization. I wonder how many are willing to stand up and say "hey you know what? I wasn't born this way, but I'm glad I CHOSE this way."
She's just one example of about half a dozen homosexual friends/family that have told me they CHOSE to be homosexual. That they believe yes, you can be born that way. But no, they were not.
If we're going to accept homosexuality with open arms, we have to be willing to entertain the idea that there will never be PROOF that you can be "born that way". We have to be willing to say, even if you are NOT born that way, even if you DID make a choice, we still support your right to be married.
Are we willing to do that? Are YOU? If you were given cemented proof that there is no possible way to be born homosexual... that everyone who is gay chooses to be gay... would you still support homosexual marriage?
