The world's stupidest analogy

news flash - people are born left-handed (i'm one of 'em) and, no matter how hard we try, right-handedness just ain't in the cards... people are also born black and red and yellow and brown and short and tall and stout and skinny and with green eyes and blue eyes and brown eyes and gray eyes... and, ya know what, you can't do anything about all that either...
"Dogs aren't born mooing, and people aren't born gay," a [Focus on the Family] news release stated.

is it possible that people are born neither straight nor gay...? and, ultimately, what the hell difference does it make...? god, sitting up in his/her/its heaven, gazing down on his/her/its creatures and saying, you're ok, you're not ok, you're ok, you're not ok, is patently absurd... it's ALL good as long as it's done with love and in the light... life's REAL challenges are all about loving and living in the light...
Focus psychologist Bill Maier told reporters that scientists had discredited several studies linking homosexuality to genetic causes.

And Melissa Fryrear, a Focus gender-issues analyst, said she herself had overcome lesbianism.

"I know first-hand that people are not born gay," she said.

good for you, melissa... if "overcoming lesbianism" has helped you to live a more fulfilling, loving life, i commend you for it... for others, embracing their lesbianism may help them to lead more fulfilling, loving lives... get over it... and, please, please, i'm begging you, STOP TELLING ME WHAT GOD WANTS FOR ME... that's between god and me and you aren't qualified to speak on the subject...
