Born Gay?

I have heard many people say they were born gay because who in their right mind would choose it. This is a very touchy subject that many don't take lightly. I can't say weather they are born that way or chose that lifestyle, all I can say is, it is not of God.

There was a huge debate going on on V103 in ATL about a minister on Oprah saying "being gay is a gift from God". I don't know how he meant it because I didn't see it, but I don't agree with any way he formed it.

I think homosexuality is a spirit not of God. Doesn't matter if you were born into it or chose it, it is a spirit. The tongue is powerful and we often speak things into existence. The gay community always say they were gay ever since they could remember. They were gay at the age of 5 because they wanted to play with dolls and be the mommy when they played house. Well how come the girls didn't consider themselves gay just because they played football and wrestled with the boys? We call that Tom Boys. Playing with dolls as a little boy doesn't mean you will be or are attracted to them. Society says it means you are gay, so these homophobic parents and community labels that on a child who is doing things differently than the norm. What do you think? Is gay ok? Can you be born that way or choose it?

I saw the show and in "my opinion" I think that he meant that as a human being we all have gifts given to us by GOD to share with others. I have helped many people in my lifetime with various things, ie sharing my pain, loaning money at just the right time, giving my spiritual testimony, saving a life in my career, etc... So because GOD gave me the gift of life, I was able to help someone in need and most time unknowingly. We are always "giving" of ourselves and we never know when the receiver was at the edge and we did something to prevent that. So if I was GAY does that make it any different. I think that's what the guest were saying. As far as being GAY, I think most are born that way and the others are just experimenting. Again, just my opinion.

PS I knew that once the comment left his mouth someone would speak about it!

Have a great weekend.

I think we all are blessed, have been blessings to others, regardless of our sexual orientation. Yes a gay man could be a gift. But I dont see how the act of homosexuality could be a gift. Maybe once you have turned from it and are showing others the way of holy life, but even then it wasnt the act that was a blessing or gift, it was the individual and how God worked through them. I think that was a bad choice of words if thats what he meant.

My opinion about this used to be vastly different. The reality is that we all have gay cousins and uncles; and if you don't think you do, you don't really know your family.

I believe (I do now anyway) in live and let live. We're supposed to live in a free society....but do we really if we tell people in our society who they are supposed to love?!? I don't think so.
