READERS’ MAIL: Being Gay Is Never A Natural Feeling But An Evil Desire We Must Detest

Dear Chris,

Hope you are doing well by the grace of God. It is my wish that you will give my letter an equal attention and publication just as you have given to the Ernest who claim to be born a gay.

First of all let’s look at it this way, there has never been any fact that scientist have proof that homosexual is an in-born thing. Much of our media sources today assume the question of homosexual being an in-born is a solved scientific problem with all the evidence pointing toward a biological (probably genetic) basis for a homosexual orientation.

Contrary to this perception, the question has been poorly studied (or studied poorly), although there maybe some evidence on sides of question as Ernest is claiming to be one (a proof). In addition, many of the initial studies, which were highly touted by the media or advocates  as “proof” for a biological basis for homosexuality, have been contradicted by later, more thorough studies.

In his submission he points some locations where he knew people who are in the same shoe as him but I want to lament that it is a fallacy, as says best in a proverb that “only a lying man who claims his only witness lives abroad”.

If what Ernest is assuming or saying about himself is true then he does not need another person to proof he is right because his is at best his witness. All he need is his doctor’s report and the credibility of the doctor and for the doctor to accept having done the test on him.  Let us assume for the sake of argument that some people are born homosexual.

Does this mean they should be free to indulge in homosexual behavior? Unmarried heterosexual men could easily argue that they are genetically wired to desire premarital sex. Some evidence exists that certain people are biologically more prone to alcoholism.

But just because a person has certain desires or inclinations, this does not mean that it is moral to act on those urges. There are thieves and Arm robbers in every corner of the globe does not mean we should conclude that people are born to be thieves and arm robbers even as we know that some people have that desire of jealousy which leads them into the act.

READERS’ MAIL: Now We All Know Being GAY Is Natural & Not Evil

 I kept saying that we as Africans should not let our moral traditions and cultures be deem by a so called power from above into accepting immorality into our humbly abode, there is no culture, tradition or even religion in Africa that support homosexual to be moral, in fact I have seen no religion in this world which’s teachings are in support of this homosexual. I read about scientist trying to prove that some people are born with this sickness but what they fail to tell us is one scientist who will boldly stand up and tell us how he conducted the search and test in arriving to that and who is the victim who was born with suck a sickness.

In other words if it is true that some people were born with this sickness as Ernest is claiming to be one, we can find a solution to it just as we are improving day-in-day-out in finding solution to people who are born with diseases of sickle-cell anaemia, epilepsy, hernia, aids and many others. Even scientist are saying different thing from what promoters of homosexuals are saying as quoted here “The causes of homosexuality are not fully understood, and many people who struggle with the temptations do not choose or want them.

There has been much debate over the issue of nature versus nurture, but scientists have been unable to find a genetic cause for homosexuality. Dr. Dean Hamer (who coined the phrase “gay gene” ) said, “We have not found the gene—which we don’t think exists—for sexual orientation.” Another study concluded, “Critical review shows the evidence favoring a biologic (genetic) theory to be lacking.”There may be genetic factors that have yet to be discovered, but the development of homosexual desires often appears rooted in an individual’s upbringing” With this conclusion if anything at all we can predominantly say that the act of homosexuals is a demonic attack which needs an exorcism.

As a matter of fact gay and lesbian to put it right are not a right under moral condition, morally it is a wrong and let us not make it politically right. Homosexual is demonic attack on people especially people who are in need because the devil always capitalize on our week points to move his agenda through. Most of the people who are under this attack of homosexuality are because of money, fame, power, recognition, frustration and so on.

Researchers have  frequently encountered the following three issues related to the onset of homosexual attractions which I might help my brother Ernest to realise where his problem is coming from so he can start working in solving it.

One: Sexual abuse. If a young woman is abused by any male, she may subconsciously think, “Men must all be like you, and no man will do that to me! I don’t want to be hurt that way again.” At times homosexuality becomes a shield for the heart and a sort of haven to escape the hurt of abusive relationships. It is understandable that a person hurt in the past would want to avoid future relationships that cause pain—and pain may be all a person knows from the opposite sex. Also, a child who was sexually abused by a member of the same sex can become confused about his or her sexual orientation.

Two: Sometimes the opposite-sex parent is too enmeshed in the life of the child. For example, a mother and son can rely too exclusively on one another for needs that should be met elsewhere. This can contribute to gender identity confusion in the child.

Three: The same-sex parent may be emotionally or physically absent. In the case of a young man, the absence of a father may lead to feelings of inferiority or rejection by peers when it comes to athletic endeavour with the other guys. Other times, a father can be so critical of a son that the dad never bothers to affirm the manhood of the young man. This can cause a young man to feel an inability to relate to his own gender. It is common that as a young man matures he will seek to identify with what is masculine. Sometimes this desire to identify with a guy who is particularly masculine may be confused with the onset of homosexuality.

If a young man acts on this and begins to explore homosexuality, he may gradually come to believe that his orientation is homosexual. But the attraction may have been there simply because the other guy possessed a degree of masculinity that the young man admired and feared he lacked.

This admiration of a member of the same sex is not uncommon during adolescence, for women as well as men. During this time young people are trying to discover their identity. They often go through a maturing process that moves them from a strong interest in same-sex friendships to a primary interest in opposite-sex relationships. It is not unusual for adolescents to feel confusion in the midst of their rapid sexual development, identity search, and maturing of interests. We are more open to learning but homosexuality is not an acceptable act of human being. It was wrong yesterday, it is wrong today and it will be wrong tomorrow.

  1. Right on point! No scientist has been able to prove being gay is natural. There are biological social, cultural even twin studies that show correlation with same-sex attractions and every intellectual knows correlation does not show cause. We are just being deceived by the west ONCE AGAIN! to believe something they believe in is right. 
    The sheer hypocrisy..Polygamy is wrong to the West but homosexuality is right an we are supposed to accept that? I dont believe in any of those concepts but really coming to think of it.mwhich is the lesser evil? Which ensures continuity on the earth?. Do not be deceived Africans and the world. Ill end with one of the many research that shows correlation with social factors for example.
    A study by the Social Organization of sexuality in America has found a positive correlation between homosexuality for instance, and the urbanization of one’s place of residence by age 14.

    1. Same way no scientist has been able to prove that there is God and there are angles yet you probably believe in God and angels without any problem.

      When it comes to Gays, you do not want to take it as it is because scientists have not been able to prove it is natural?

      What sort of hypocrite are you?

      Let me tell you this, I have been a lesbian since I became sex aware. I am not attracted to anyman and have never slept with any man. I am moved by women, I love them and I enjoy sex with them.

      If this is not natural, tell me what is it and give me the cure. Don’t tell me prayers is cure because scientists have not been able to prove that prayers go anywhere or in fact prayers work

    2. False. ALL  major science organizations (WHO, American Academy of Pediatrics, Royal Academy of Psychiatrists etc. have found out that being gay is ABSOLUTELY normal & NOT A CHOICE. Further, over 1500 animal species equally engage in homosexual intercourse (google is your friend 🙂 ). Are those animals also unnatural & ‘sinners’? lol

      Btw, who said that homosexuality won’t ensure ‘continuity’? Who told you gays & lesbians don’t have biological kids? & with the world struggling with overpopulation to the point that scientists claim that we may use up ALL our waterbodies within the next century, shouldn’t we rather be fighting to reduce our population? See how far China has come when they decided to limit their population?

      As for that study that you mentioned, did you read the entire portion? Did you read the part that Laumann & the others hypothesized that the reason for the correlation was NOT because being in the cities MADE people gay but because being in the cities ALLOWED them to be themselves & express their sexuality which was already innate & had already been formed? Just like how AkosuaGhana said, most gays & lesbians know by childhood or even puberty that they are attracted to the same sex. But if they live in an urban area or a place where they’re allowed to be themselves, they can express their sexuality & date freely etc. If they don’t live in such a place, they would now have to suppress their orientation & even try (unsuccessfully to change it) leading to depression & suicide or they may practice it on the down low leading to HIV.

  2. Why can’t some people leave GAYS alone? You are talking about how being GAY is an eveil desire and must detest like you are a SAINT.  mtchewwww

    1. Say it again sister. People are treating Gays the same way white people treated black years ago. If Gay is bad, what makes you think hetrosexual is bad? what is the evidence or proof that heterosexual is the good and not Gay?

  3. Your claim that no African culture has accepted homosexuality is patently false! I’m doing my graduate studies in LGBT rights in Africa & several anthropologists & historians have documented that homosexuality didn’t only occur in Africa but was embraced by several ethnic groups. This stopped when the white people came & introd their religion. Eg: The Azandes of Central Africa had a custom where male warriors took boy wives; the Dogon people of Mali & Dagara people of Burkina (this ethnic group is also found in Northern Ghana) considered gay men as spiritual gatekeepers. Moreover, there are wall murals in ancient Egypt, depicting gay civil unions & rock paintings discovered in Zimbabwe made by the ancient Shona people. If you doubt what I’m saying, read ‘Boy Wives, Female Husbands’ by Murray & Roscoe, “Hungochani” by Epprecht, “A history of same sex marriage’ by Eskridge & “Out of the Closet” by Sylvia Tamale. 

  4. Moreover, your arguments about science, biology & homosexuality are faulty. ALL reputable medical & psychological organizations in the world now AGREE that homosexuality is not a defect/ disease & it is not a choice.  As far back as 1990, the WHO stated that homosexuality cannot be classified as a disease.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics stated in 2004 that “The mechanisms for the development of a particular sexual orientation remain unclear, but the current literature and most scholars in the field state that one’s sexual orientation is not a choice; that is, individuals do not choose to be homosexual or heterosexual”

    The Royal Academy of Psychiatrists (UK) stated in 2007 that “there is no substantive evidence to support the suggestion that the nature of parenting or early childhood experiences play any role in the formation of a person’s fundamental heterosexual or homosexual orientation. It would appear that sexual orientation is biological in nature, determined by a complex interplay of genetic factors and the early uterine environment. Sexual orientation is therefore not a choice”. 

    So don’t use half-baked medical theories to encourage discrimination against LGBTs. 

  5. nobody is born gay, just like nobody was born to kill or be a theif, being gay is not a disease it’s a choice, homosexuals need to understand not everybody in this world is not going too accept you because off either their religion or simply because off their moral values, I have no problem with gays I don’t care what they do just stop trying to force people to accept you, just focus and you and do what makes you happy 

    1. Wow, if being gay is a choice then when did you choose to be straight?Being gay (ie: being attracted to the same sex) is not a choice. In the same way that you, Ohenewa, never CHOSE to be attracted to men  but that’s what you’ve known since you hit puberty, that’s how gay people NEVER chose to fall in love with the same sex. Which human being would choose to be gay when they are so despised & maltreated by self-righteous people? Btw, gay people aren’t asking for your approval. They’re fighting to be able to love whom they want without being killed, jailed & persecuted.
