Turns out you can feel free to file “born this way” under the same heading as “if you like your current healthcare plan you can keep it.”
For these are things liars say.
The latest comprehensive research blows the first bit of nonsense out of the water. Turns out the science isn’t so perverted after all – only our dark and broken appetites and desires; confirming what a tangled web we weave when our intent is to deceive.
A 41-year annual survey, involving more than 33,000 people, was conducted between 1973 and 2014 by researchers from Widener, Florida Atlantic and San Diego State universities. And according to reporting done by the Philadelphia Enquirer, the verdict is that a lot more Americans are having sex with both men and women than ever before. While at the same time the number of people who identify as strictly homosexual is both static and miniscule.
That’s likely how Sodom and Gomorrah transformed themselves from nice bed-and-breakfast communities into a bombing range for fire and brimstone.
So has a biological mutation occurred that has steered us into this sordid reality? Nope, it’s not the X-Men come to life. Just plain old sin wallowing, and the numbers originally laid out in the Archives of Sexual Behavior prove it.
Those who said they believed homosexual behavior was “not wrong at all” stood at 11 percent in 1973 and rose just two points to 13 percent by 1990. But fast-forward to 2014 and watch the levee break as 49 percent of respondents proudly play for the team that thinks Romans 1 is a celebration—rather than a warning.
That passage of Scripture isn’t just focused on the sad state of affairs claimed by only 1.7 percent of men and .9 percent of women who, with very little change over time, said they exclusively engaged in homosexual sex. It also, and perhaps more so, includes the sort of adults who said they had at least one homosexual partner between the early 1990s and the early 2010s. As, not coincidentally, conventional Judeo-Christian morality was increasingly cast into Moloch’s fire.
Those fools roughly doubled, from 3.6 to 8.7 percent for women, and from 4.5 to 8.2 percent for men. That’s likely how Sodom and Gomorrah transformed themselves from nice bed-and-breakfast communities into a bombing range for fire and brimstone. Not because they accepted the reality of their DNA or some drivel like that. Instead, they clearly decided to reject reality altogether.
“More and more young people today are sort of rejecting those very strict labels of gay, straight, or bisexual and saying, ‘I’m fluid or queer,’ ” said one of the study’s researchers.
But since ‘rejecting strict labels’ is in fact the very opposite of anything that can be called science, we are simply being told that people are doing whatever they want with whoever they want because, well, because.
That’s all you need to know, bigot. Oh, except the part about how you should expect a lawsuit or a hazing or a shunning for not being as open-minded and groovy as these ne’er-do-wells. You see, “choice” is only for cool things like killing the unborn and testing the boundaries of perversion, not for humbling oneself before God’s design.
Yet, interestingly enough, you can throw all that gender fluid stuff out the window when it comes to shoe-horning Hillary into the White House. Then its girl power time to the very ends of the earth, and never mind the fact she is the proven enabler of a husband with a track record of pursuing women like the Kardashians pursue shamelessness.
Funny, I thought the Left wanted us to reject such heteronormative labeling. Thus, I’ve decided not to honor the first self-identified woman to become a major party’s nominee for president. After all, tomorrow it could be “call me Henry” as the Democrat nominee on the cover of Vanity Fair.
But I digress.
Where was I? Oh yeah, they weren’t born that way. And they know it, too. Always have. That’s the dirty little secret that should be as obvious as the thing between Bruce Jenner’s legs by now.
Yet progressives like to call down ‘up’ and up ‘down,’ and they do it because they like to break things that are good, true and beautiful. They are secular iconoclasts, and if that means more dudes need to get freaky with dudes in order to shake a fist at the created order of things, so be it. What it does to the mind, body and soul be damned (perhaps literally).
Here’s why this matters when it comes to public policy, regardless of whether you take the Bible seriously or not. In our constitutional republic, rights are pre-existent in nature. Bestowed by God, not government. Anything that requires consent is not a right. And if you do anything to violate anybody else’s God-given rights, then government’s duty is to step in and right that wrong.
For example, if someone is born disabled or of a different race/gender than the one that currently dominates society, that is a state of being endowed by the Creator. Therefore, they are not to be denied equal access to the opportunities of the majority, for that would be discrimination. Instead, the majority has a moral obligation to protect the God-given rights of such minorities.
However, if you engage in a behavior that imposes on the God-given rights of somebody else, then it’s not discrimination when government punishes you or balances the scales but justice. No one has a right to impose upon or restrict another person’s God-given rights.
The progressives’ argument for normalizing sexual perversity, and by extension imposing on the God-given religious liberty enshrined in our Constitution, is that people behaving in such ways can’t help themselves. They are “born this way” and therefore must be spared of the ramblings of the religious. That’s precisely why we’re in this national debate over bathrooms after all. These victims simply have no choice but to act on their craven impulses, which makes the grown man changing in the women’s locker room a modern-day Rosa Parks.
Except this study from liberal academia, of all places, proves that’s a pernicious lie. Like practically everything else today’s regressive progressives preach.
But it’s not enough to just expose perdition’s propaganda. Pray that God will raise up people of courage, who love their neighbor enough to speak truth into their lives, and stand for it in the culture.
The harvest is plenty, but the workers are few.
