Letter: Homosexuals are equal to heterosexuals
Published on June 17, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Mr Theologian,

Homosexuality is inherited; scientists claim that homosexuality could be passed from generation to generation.

There is a controversy about whether sexual orientation is a matter of choice... equality for homosexuals should be promoted.

The mother's resistance to the male Y chromosome is a contributing factor to producing for baby boys more likely to be born gay.

Neurotransmitters show that sexual preference in mammals varies.

Serotonin regulates sexual behaviours such as erection, ejaculation and orgasm. Serotonin promotes a male's decision to woo a female or another male; hence homosexuality is based on a brain chemical

DNA studies on homosexual brothers pinpointed “culprit” genetic material to a region of the X chromosome that mothers pass on to their offspring.

There are reproductive advantages associated with male homosexuality.

Genetic factors favouring homosexual male offspring could make the woman more fertile.

The Council on Bioethics suggests that there could be a link between genes and behaviour.

It is not really whether it is nature or nurture... The important matter is that we treat homosexual people with respect, equality, dignity and relevance.

There are some homosexuals who dwell in the heterosexual camp, because they feel safer there... and on the surface pretend to be heterosexual! There are many gays who pretend to be "straight" while in the public eye, but in private they are homosexuals.

I have as some of my clients, priests, pastors, preachers and politicians who preach against homosexuality but in private they are gay.
