The Tempest

Not Exactly Shooting For \”Miss Congeniality\”

Playing God for Dummies

If it looks like we’re on a theme lately, then I guess that could be true. The Evangelicals, a group with something so pure as “angel” in their name, continue to spew complete and utter bullshit AND continue to use the gay community as their favorite voodoo doll to stick pins in. This from the Associated Press:

Homosexuality May Be Based on Biology, Baptist Says
Published: March 16, 2007
The president of the leading Southern Baptist seminary has suggested that a biological basis for homosexuality may be proven, and that prenatal treatment to reverse gay orientation would be biblically justified.

The Rev. R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., and one of the country’s evangelical leaders, posted the article on his personal Web site earlier this month.

Mr. Mohler said in the article that scientific research “points to some level of biological causation” for homosexuality.

That suggestion offended fellow conservatives, Mr. Mohler said. Proof of a biological basis would challenge the belief of many conservative Christians that homosexuality, which they view as sinful, is a matter of choice that can be overcome through prayer and counseling.

But Mr. Mohler said he was criticized even more strongly by supporters of gay rights, who were upset by his assertion that homosexuality would remain a sin even if it were biologically based, and by his support for possible medical treatment that could change an unborn child’s sexual orientation.

“He’s willing to play God,” said Harry Knox, a spokesman on religious issues for the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay rights group. “He’s more than willing to let homophobia take over and be the determinant of how he responds to this issue, in spite of everything else he believes about not tinkering with the unborn.”

The article, published on March 2, carried a long but intriguing title: “Is Your Baby Gay? What If You Could Know? What If You Could Do Something About It?”

Mr. Mohler began by summarizing some recent research into sexual orientation and advising his Christian readership that they should brace for the possibility that a biological basis for homosexuality might be proven.

He wrote that such proof would not alter the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality, but said the discovery would be “of great pastoral significance, allowing for a greater understanding of why certain persons struggle with these particular sexual temptations.”

The babies above are none other than Kat B and myself. We were indoctrintated to the Baptist belief system, if you are willing to stretch your imagination to call it a system, at an early age. You see what the GLBT community, and any enlightened compatriots of it, are up against. Even a few tentative steps into accepting science , and that “enlightened” Baptist, Reverend Mohler, while willing to accept a biological connection to sexual orientation, simultaneously would advocate ALTERING THE FETUS’ DNA to prevent he or she from emerging as a homo. They wouldn’t tinker with it being a boy or girl, but tinkering with future attraction to boys or girls, well that’s just dandy.

These are the same imbeciles that stand in the way of stem cell research??? They combine ignorance, closemindedness, right-wing group think and now a dash of science in their despicable kool aid. It has turned them into dummies hoping to play God.

And equally as disturbing, if Mohler could actually get the So-Bapts to accept the science of sexual orientation, they will still consider it a sin!!! How utterly and thoroughly STUPID. If only they considered bigotry to be a sin.

The first edition of “Playing God for Dummies” should be flying off the bookstore shelves in the very near future

(Thanks to my friend Dan K for the heads up on this!)

    Interesting, if they can’t alter them, will they support aborting them to prevent them living a life of sin. Why oh why, this preoccupation with sex among the evangelicals, why not focus on some other aspect of Christianity like oh I dunno, love one another, feed the poor, heal the sick. No we gotta make sure the wrong people don’t have sex with each other.
