What’s interesting is, while I do see truths in the Bible encoded in a more metaphorical and metaphysical way, something like that post ironically comes across to me as Satanic. (Or egoic in the meta sense), and completely the opposite of Christ’s teachings, which are the Diamond in a lump of Biblical coal.
The first and most potent counterpoint to make when faced with the misguided ideology of people like this person is this:
The Religion You Choose To Follow Is Just That – A CHOICE…
…and for this body of persecuted people to begrudge anyone else for making a lifestyle choice that isn’t sanctioned is:

If you are Christian and have a bug up your ass about Gays choosing to be gay, cool your heels and do not continue to utilize this meme as justification for you to enact your bigotry and persecution. It can’t matter that gays choose to be gay if it doesn’t matter that you choose to be religious. You were once persecuted, crucified, fed to lions for sport — all because a less tempered and enlightened society than ours felt the same way about you as you are toward LGBTs. It does not matter if being Gay is a choice. Being Christian is a choice. And our law allows for you to make that choice and be protected from persecution as well as there being any law that would forbid you from worship (which is the exhibition of your lifestyle). Consider extending this same courtesy to us, lest you be considered anachronistic thwarts against progress and a civil society.
One of my favorite dumb nuggets in this posting of his is that at the bottom, it refers to another article of his called
In which he quotes: “DNA is a coded language so sophisticated that our greatest minds still can’t fathom it fully, and those most familiar with the ongoing work say we will be deciphering it for the next 100 years.”
Yet he’s wasted no time in condemning Homosexuality as a moral error because there is no DNA evidence for it. This to me is an infallible example of the typical agenda-driven science and moral compass of the wayward religious right.
Was it not possible that in the dimension of DNA that is “light years beyond our comprehension”, there would exist the components expressing homosexuality? How could you miss something so obvious unless you were starting at Leviticus and working backwards, with the fuel of Biblically-inspired bigotry.
Now, all that being said, being Gay is of course not a choice. And the fact that it is not a choice is not necessarily predicated on finding a gene for it. For all we know, there could be metaphysical DNA in our souls that can’t even be registered on instruments. This could be the seat of such concepts as Karma, past life memories, intuition and psychic abilities, personality and sexuality….all the juicy things that make us more Human than our house plants. So in the meantime while we are down here figuring ourselves out, I suggest to you Mr.GodCameDown.com, that you speak nothing, do nothing, that would dampen the natural expression of, or threaten the well being of, any of God’s creations, however He created them.
Your article is persecutory and a hideous affront to the Divine intention for peace on Earth.
