Some folks hold views that are not only wrong but irreconcilable as well. The only consistent theme is that they are all in direct opposition to the Word of God.
Consider how some groups simultaneously try to hold two or more of these views:
- Men and women aren’t different.
- “Gender fluidity” means boys and girls as young as elementary school are told they can choose what gender they are. Even though there isn’t a difference. And their perceived gender can change.
- Homosexuals and bisexuals are “born that way” and can’t be changed.
- If you declare that you are now gay, then that means you were always gay. But if you were gay and now declare yourself straight then you are still gay.
- It is mandatory that homosexuals be able to marry someone of the same sex. A gay guy can’t just marry a female with more masculine characteristics, or a biological female who thinks she is really a man.
- Sperm banks for Lesbians are important, because it is important for the women to experience pregnancy and have their own child. But having a father around – or even knowing who he is – is completely irrelevant to the child.
- Homosexual orientation is driven by “nature,” so it is moral.
- Homosexual parenthood obviously defies “nature,” but it is moral as well.
- It is irrelevant whether your parents are M/F, M/M, F/F, or even a set of two.
- HIV/AIDS is not a gay disease, and you are homophobic if you suggest it is.
- If you don’t support more funding for HIV/AIDS you are homophobic.
- Homosexual behavior is OK because we observe it in the animal kingdom, even though animals do all sorts of things that we’d never apply that logic to (e.g., the female praying mantis eating the male after mating, dogs humping everything in sight — including your leg or your coffee table, etc.).
Consider the net result of the typical gay adoption argument: Having a same-sex partner is paramount, but the sex of the parents is irrelevant. How can that be?
I am saying that public policies should not encourage gay parenting and definitely shouldn’t force adoption agencies to provide children to gay couples. Exceptions can make bad rules. I am also saying that it is ridiculous to consider phrases such as traditional family to be offensive.
Once again, the culture is putting the desires of adults over the needs of children. It is the same lie that was foundational to the easy divorce and abortion movements: Adults are vulnerable, children are not.
Lies. Big, big lies.
