Recently a basketball player came out to say he was gay. Many people including the President complimented him on his courage. But is this abnormal behavior something that we should approve?
This is abnormal because we are talking about sex between two people of the same gender. I am not sure if it even fits the description of sex. It is abnormal because the performance of sex cannot produce an offspring. What would happen if being gay became the norm in our species. The human race will die out. That is why I prefer to use the word abnormal.
But many people will say what is the problem of two people loving each other. There is no problem if two people love each other, like the love between parents and their children, the love between best friends or the love between siblings. But when there is sex between them, there is a problem. This behavior will be considered abnormal.
We do not know God’s purpose in the creation of a gay disposition on certain individuals, but like all urges that we have, they can be controlled. I do not know how difficult it would be to resist our sexual urges for a lifetime, but knowing that it is an abnormal behavior may possible make it easier for some gay individuals to abstain.
I hope that this basketball player came out to show people that gay people are like everyone else. They are God’s children who need our support and love. I truly hope that he did not come out to gain approval of sex between the same gender.
