Cry, “Justice!”

I want to add to the prior posts personal stories of how people have confronted issues of sexuality or sexual orientation as it relates to GLBT issues.  It seems to me that the issues of how people in society recognize and respect people of different sexuality or gender other than their own are issues of justice, and most often related to issues of religion.  Eric Fromm, a self-proclaimed atheist as I understand it, said that a healthy religion was necessary to mental health.  As I recall, he said that religion provides the individual with a sense of orientation and object of devotion. In a different context I had struggled with issues of justice and how we can know what is just, or put another way, “God’s will.”  I make it available here.  It is not a scholarly work, but the result of my own personal struggle with what I perceived to be injustice.  Feel free to download it and share it as you see fit.  Cry Justice!

Is There a Gay Gene? What If . . . ?

See http://drdeborahserani.blogspot.com/2006/05/genetics-and-sexuality-gay-gene.html for studies to determine if there is a genetic basis for homosexuality.  The author, Dr. Deborah Serani, reviews studies on the issue and she finds them inconclusive.  She notes that, “Rev. Mohler was astute with his statement to fellow Southern Baptists that homosexuality might have a biological base.”  And Rev. Mohler asks, “What if?” 

See, also, http://genetics.suite101.com/article.cfm/sexual_behavior_in_mice for an article by Barry Starr entitled “Pheremones Decide Mice Sexuality; Sexual Behaviour and Genetics Study Reveals Causes of Bisexuality”

 

What would it hurt if we suspended judgment on homosexuality until more evidence can be gathered concerning any physical determinants of the orientation?

Discuss

What do we really have to lose by assuming that the answer may be in the affirmative and so we treat it, until proven otherwise, as though it is not a choice but a biologically determined condition?
