Pray the Gay Away?
While attacking Palin for being a working mother, the Left is pretending to be shocked that Palins' church thinks that they can pray the gay away. This makes sense only if you believe that being gay is a choice. Why anyone would choose to be gay in any culture where they are persecuted is beyond me -- to my mind, the fact that there are gay men and women in countries where they are killed for behaving that way strongly suggests to me that it's not entirely a choice. Sure, once can choose not to engage in this or that behavior, but to say that someone whose natural disposition is to be sexually attracted to someone of the same sex is like demanding that people not engage in political behavior, or that an artist not engage in artistic behavior. The fact that homosexual behavior occurs in other species also shows that it's a natural behavior. Of course, I've said all this before here and here, but sometimes things bear repeating.
