Did you ever choose to be straight? There's your answer. In reality, sexual orientation is the result of a variety of factors such as biology, prenatal conditions and psychology--especially during early childhood and then during the adolescent years. That being said, we conclude that it is inaccurate to say that homosexuals are "born that way" as many folks claim, but at the same time, it is also inaccurate to say that they "chose" to be homosexual. In retrospect, either way, it is irrelevant from the Church's perspective as to where it comes from. Homosexuality in itself isn't condemned, rather sexual acts of a homo-erotic nature are condemned--as are a few other sexual practices due to some odd Canon laws that are often overlooked. In retrospect, I'm anxious to see how long it will take until J Michael twists the elementary semantics of the English language to support some far-fetched idea that homosexuals and panda bears threaten the non-existent American "family unit."
You're very funny, JamesR!
You're kinda close, but once again have "missed the mark", so to speak. The only
threat that I perceive to that which you claim does not exist is...........................gay pandas.
And just to reinforce some of the comments already made, acting gay, as in performing homosexual acts is a choice. Sexual orientation is not necessarily so, if at all.
(See, just when you think you know me, JamesR.....you end up talking out your posterior inferior orifice once again
. Not to worry, though, you're in excellent company--everyone of us
manages to pass gas multiple times daily--even the ladies. Now, the question is, is it a choice?
