There is a lot of back and forth going on in this post about genetics vs choice. I have done a lot of reading on this topic, and I haven't yet seen
the definitive studies that state that homosexuality is genetic. Yes there have been some post mortem studies of brains of gay men that showed some
differences in one area of the brain that was not present in the brains of heterosexual men. And these differences were not present in the brains of
gay women. These studies are still in dispute, so the jury is still out.
I admit that I feel that sexuality is a choice, often influenced by social and family dynamics. And how does one explain the fact that men will have
sex with men when no women are present (i.e. prison) and then return to hetero activity when released? Are you telling me this not a choice?
The problem seems to be, from my point of view, that some people don't want people praying for them. I happen to work in a high stress job, where my
decisions can be a matter of life and death. I have had ministers walk onto my unit and spontaneously pray for me and my co-workers, that we would
have the wisdom, the knowledge, and the calm spirit to handle the emergencies that might occur. Even the non-beleivers appreciated it. Their
attitude? It can't hurt, and if it helps, then great!
