Homosexuality and Genetics

If homo­sex­u­al­i­ty is a result of genet­ics and peo­ple are born gay AND if evo­lu­tion and nat­ur­al selec­tion is fact, then log­i­cal­ly the homo­sex­u­al gene would­n’t have survived.

In fact, the only way for it to be passed on would have been through het­ero­sex­u­al “activ­i­ties,” which cer­tain­ly argues for it being the nat­ur­al and prop­er “lifestyle.”

Thus, from a strict­ly evo­lu­tion­ary stand­point, where nat­ur­al selec­tion is law, homo­sex­u­al­i­ty is a neg­a­tive muta­tion, a bane to sur­vival of one’s genes akin to infer­til­i­ty. And from a gen­er­al reli­gious (and cer­tain­ly bib­li­cal) point of view, homo­sex­u­al­i­ty is a sin.

Only a denial of both evo­lu­tion and the Law of God could pos­si­bly jus­ti­fy the “right­ness” of homosexuality.

Oh, and the fact that there are still homo­sex­u­als attests of two things: Either that homo­sex­u­al­i­ty is not genet­ic, or that the mutant gene respon­si­ble for genet­ics is a recent devel­op­ment. How­ev­er, since we know homo­sex­u­als have been around for thou­sands of years, we can elim­i­nate the sec­ond option.

And so homo­sex­u­al­i­ty is not genet­ic. Thus it is a choice, a choice which we are born with and sim­i­lar to the choice to be a liar, a mur­der­er, an idol­ater, a pros­ti­tute, an adul­ter­er, a rebel, etc.

As a choice, it has a counter-choice, that of repen­tance of the sin. Jesus Christ asks for you to come to Him in faith and believe into Him. In being born again, you will be made new, bap­tized into Him, free to walk in new­ness of life. And through Jesus Christ, homo­sex­u­al­i­ty (and lying, and mur­der­ing, and…) can be left behind as your old self is mor­ti­fied dai­ly by the pow­er of Christ and the renew­ing of your mind through the Spir­it and the word of God.

  1. By that the­o­ry, there would be no genet­ic based dis­eases that would pre­vent the con­tin­u­a­tion of a species through death pri­or to cop­u­la­tion, how­ev­er that has been shown not to be true. A genet­ic base for homo­sex­u­al­i­ty does not mean in any way that evo­lu­tion is debunked, and one might wish to revis­it gene the­o­ry to dis­cov­er reces­sive genes and their poten­tial impacts.
