Gays claim that homosexuality is innate, genetic and immutable, just like being a woman or an person of color. They have used that [mis]information to deceive quite a few people and even rail against people who have changed. Such characteristics, they say are God-given and cannot and shouldn’t be changed. Like their political counterparts, the gay christian movement claims that there is no need to repent or change from something which God created. But the critical aspect of the question isnt really change, it is origin. Determining origin determines legitimacy. Immutability is defined as “the quality of being unchangeable; having a marked tendency to remain unchanged.” Thus, one’s race and gender are understood to be unalterable based on predetermined factors which contribute significantly to one’s identity. Of course because of sin, there exists the possibility that all things contain some malfunction. With gender, based on the disposition of X or Y chromosomes one receives their gender assignment. In some rare cases, issues go awry and people are born with a gender abnormality. We addressed that here.
A simple test
With the Episcopal church moving at breakneck speed to get more gay bishops in position, we thought it made for a good teaching moment. The Episcopal diocese of Los Angeles recently announced six candidates (pictured) for bishop. Two of them are homosexual.
Here’s a simple test.
(1) Without doing any research or googling, which two of the six can you identify just by sight as being genetically homosexual?
(2) Which two of the six genetically are people of color?
(3) Which three of the six are genetically female?
Based on the common definition of immutability, could you easily identify the females and people of color? Based on the same criteria could you easily identify the homosexuals? Why or why not?
