You Can’t Fix Nature

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

In an article here I read about the supposed spiritual “restoration” of the Rev. Ted Haggard, the meth and male prostitute guy. This caught my eye:

“I see success approximately 50 percent of the time,” said H.B. London, vice president for church and clergy at Focus on the Family, the conservative Christian ministry in Colorado Springs. “Guys just wear out and they can no longer subject themselves to the process.”

Those who fail “end up selling cars or shoes or something, and being miserable and angry the rest of their lives,” London said.

Have these people not seen A Clockwork Orange?

You can’t fix nature, or nurture for that matter.  Men and women have thoughts and feeling they are not comfortable with.  I have no reason to believe the Kinsey scale is wrong. So that means that a majority of people have some level of homosexual and heterosexual inclinations. It’s the belief that people are either homosexual or heterosexual. This polarization of sexual orientation creates tragedies that we’ve seen in the news lately.

Guys: It’s OK to have homosexual thoughts.  It’s even OK to act on them as long as you can stay in integrity with yourself and the commitments in your life. When you repress it, it becomes a mess. Your thoughts can not be fixed. You might be able to go against nature and “fix” your behavior.
