Here is an analogy. If you are born with a defect (a defect which affects the proper functioning of the brain). We would not say that this is 'wrong'. Having this defect is not 'wrong'. But we would not say that it is 'right'. This is not some kind of condition which we would want people to have. It is an unfortunate disorder of the mind. Some chance occurence in the process of conception has caused it. Perhaps this is how we should view homosexuality. This is the way in which it is 'wrong'. What do you think of this?
If this passage gives rise to any offence I shall remove it if you wish.
Boo to censorship. If we can't discuss controversial matters no progress will be made.
Ok, let us assume that homosexuality is similar to this, it has resulted from a defect at some stage. However, this does not make homosexuality morally
wrong. Nor does it affect anyone other than the person with the so called 'defect' - they're not going to reproduce after all, so the 'defect' should be culled.
The only way that such a thing could be passed on is if they were forced to live a heterosexual lifestyle and have children. By being tolerant and accepting this possibility is removed. Everyone should be happy.
Your argument then is that homosexuality is 'wrong' in the same way that, say, Downs syndrome is - it is a physical defect, undesirable for the person affected? However, this then assumes that they have no control over it, so why should they be treated any differently?
