The following letter to the editor of the Monroe Watchman was written in response to a long letter Emily Winter had written in support of homosexuality. She titled her letter “It Gets Better.” Since he didn’t print it, I assume Editor Craig Mohler apparently didn’t like my letter in response to Winter’s. He is a Democrat and that may be enough to explain why.
I read with interest a letter in The Monroe Watchman written by Emily Winter, a graduate of James Monroe High School, and now a graduate student at Boston University School of Public Health. I appreciate her apparent concern for troubled teens who may become suicidal. She specifically cited the fact that several young homosexuals across the US have taken their own lives since September, and that discrimination/bullying by others was a factor in causing these suicides. It just may be a flawed premise to suggest homosexuals who commit suicide do so because they have been bullied. Is it possible they were confused young people because they are getting so many mixed signals from TV, movies, and school programs about their sexuality? At the very least we should consider that, just maybe, homosexuality is abnormal.
While claiming to have no personal experience, Winter wrote that she had heard stories from friends in high school, college and in the workplace who are “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Questioning” people. She acknowledged that there are some good values in small, rural, and largely religious communities, but she also wrote “And in a place like Monroe County, it can be difficult to figure out how to find your place or find your way in a society that may not be fully welcoming of the person you were born to be.”
The tone of Emily Winter’s letter did not suggest she is a hardcore homosexual advocate, but merely one of the many people, especially the young in America today who have bought into the sales pitch of homosexual activists. Briefly, the propaganda goes like this: Homosexuality is normal and people who disagree are bigoted homophobes. Homosexuals are victims. They are generous with buzz words like bully, tolerance, welcoming, diversity, affirming, insensitive, bigot, hate speech and homophobe. Above all, they keep repeating the mantra, “Homosexuals were born that way.”
Winter said people are “born with differing perceptions, philosophies, or preferences.” Check the definition of “philosophy” and then tell me people are born with one. Preferences: the truth is that after many studies looking for a genetic cause for sexual preference, or a “Gay gene”, no one has come close to discovering such. For those who believe there is a Gay gene, I wonder, do they also believe there is a Transgender gene? Does the guy who swings both ways, as it were, have a Bisexual gene, or is this type behavior of his own choosing?
Even some homosexual activists agree that homosexuality is not normal. For example, Lesbian author and activist Camille Paglia has stated: “Homosexuality is not ‘normal.’ On the contrary it is a challenge to the norm … Nature exists whether academics like it or not. And in nature, procreation is the single relentless rule. That is the norm. Our sexual bodies were designed for reproduction … No one is born gay. The idea is ridiculous … homosexuality is an adaptation, not an inborn trait.” Source: http://www.traditionalvalues.org/urban/seven.php
The best evidence we have suggests that homosexuality is a choice people make and not a genetically inherited trait. Troublesome is the fact that too many people readily accept so much deceptive propaganda without searching for the facts. To her credit, Winter did recommend people seek advice from teachers, a guidance counselor or a pastor. However the main place she recommends for advice is a web site started by two homosexuals. The web page was called It Gets Better Project, and the title of Winter’s letter was “It Gets Better.” You tell me, can the fact that practicing homosexual men are apt to die 30 years younger than their heterosexual counterparts be categorized as “It Gets Better?” Just google “homosexual lifespan” on the Internet for that information.
Considering the fact that homosexuality is likely a choice people make, and the sexual act definitely presents a dangerous health risk, why are there thousands of homosexual clubs in high schools where “questioning” teens are invited to explore their sexuality/gender identity? Does that not qualify as child endangerment?
Our children need to hear the truth. All people, including homosexuals deserve some level of respect regardless of the choices they make. However, since the Garden of Eden man has tried to be his own god while rejecting God’s never-changing Truth. For those who wish to reject the writings in the Bible, fine, but the prospects of dying 30 years too soon is worth some serious study of the facts. Two men having sex with one another certainly sounds more dangerous than global warming or secondhand smoke to me. Truth … common sense … wisdom … priorities … we have some work to do here!
