While I agree with your comments on 'pre-disposition', the way you've laid out your post would seem to argue that thieves and rapists should therefore be accepted as well. Not what I think you were trying to express, but watch it become troll-fodder...especially by those who regard gay marriage as “assault on the foundations of our society.”, as voiced by the current GOP election platform.

There is a belief among some scientists that all of our behavior is "predisposition-ed" by our genetic makeup. So, even a thief is born that way. He has "kleptomania" in his genes. A rapist also gets his urges from his genetic makeup, he just needs an adversarial environment to climax, etc..So, perhaps we should understand this, that people are really just born the way they are, and accept everybody for who they are instead of trying to make them be who we want them to be.

Hmm. So people doing what they do behind closed doors is the same as perpatrating violence on others in public?

Or, did I say we're more accepting of people's behavior today, regardless of how abhorrent we viewed that behavior yesterday?
