Genetic Condition

Some people claim that there is proof that homosexual behavior is genetic.  That it is built into the system of homosexuals.  The further claim that this means we cannot discriminate against them because for them, homosexual behavior is normal.

This is simply a lie.  There was one biological study that showed there was a difference in the brains of homosexuals and straight people.  That study was conducted by a homosexual man and has never been duplicated by any other scientist.  His findings were simply wrong.

Even if there was a genetic basis for homosexual behavior does not mean that the behavior is appropriate.  Some people are attracted to animals, children or close relatives.  If we find this behavior is genetic do we throw out the laws against bestiality, pedophilia and incest?  I think not.  We know there are people with psychological compulsions to set fires or to steal.  We don't permit them to burglarize stores or burn them down.  We provide treatment for them and help them to overcome their condition and lead normal lives.  We should do the same for homosexuals, just like we did fifty years ago; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
