Gayness: An Immoral choice?
Romney was for gays before he was against them. Huckabee thinks that being gay is an immoral choice. Guiliani dances around the issue saying that being gay is not a sin, but what a gay person does is sinful. Huh? Tancreado probably thinks all illegal immigrants are gay. While having an opinion about gay people is not the central issue of this presidential cycle, how these men feel about the issue serves as a barometer to their thought processes. Do they consider all available evidence before they make a decision or do they stick a finger up in the air to see which way the wind is blowing? As someone who has studied the issue rather extensively (in researching my novel "Rx for Mass Murder") one of the most likely explanations for 'gayness' is the level of female hormones the male fetus is exposed to during his mother's pregnancy. A substantial amount of scientific evidence supports this hypothesis. How does this scientific explanation square with the labeling of homosexuality as an immoral choice? Millions upon millions of pregnant women were indiscriminantly administered synthetic sex hormones during pregnancies in the 50s and 60s and there is a remarkable correlation between the incidence of homosexuality (and AIDS) in various geographic regions with the sales of these products years earlier. It is my belief that anyone who truly wants to have an informed opinion on this subject would be aware of the scientific evidence before they express an opinion that is obviously intended to pander only to the semi-literate belief systems of those who choose to keep their heads buried in the sand.
