There’s always some talk going around that people who are gay (at least some of them) were born that way. They reason that since they were born gay, then there is nothing wrong with it and people, like Christians, should likewise see nothing wrong with it.
Here are my thoughts: If there is some gay gene that caused someone to be born gay, then ok. I can concede that (although thus far there has been no such gene found). However, that does not mean that it is right/not sinful to have sexual intercourse with someone of the same gender (see Lev 18:22), or even to look at another person in lust (see Mat 5:28). Why? Because God said don’t do it.
Now, does that mean that I would avoid a person who struggles with this sin? No, of course not! If they recognize that it is wrong, that God does not want them to do that, yet they still struggle with the issue, then how is it any different than a man who struggles with alcoholism? An alcoholic who has not had a drink in years still struggles with that disease every day. I believe it is the same for a gay person who is trying to overcome the disease of that sin (genetic or not).
What say you?
