Neal Boortz claimed last week that a person's sexuality is "ordained in the womb." Meaning homosexuality, as Boortz sees it, is not a choice. Though I usually agree with Boortz, I beg to differ. In today's culture, homosexuality is increasingly being presented as a lifestyle option.
Science has yet to determine if there is such a thing as a "gay gene" which predetermines sexual orientation. Lacking definitive proof of hard-wired homosexuality, the left does what it usually does in situations where the facts don't coincide with their ideology: they "deem" it is so. Just as they did with the "man-made global warming crisis" and the canard that second-hand smoke causes cancer.
Many Americans would be shocked to know that, to date, no scientific link has been proven between man and global warming, or between second-hand smokers and cancer. And no-one has found the elusive "gay gene." The left has merely deemed that it is so, despite the lack of hard evidence. That's the way they passed this years' budget. Dems didn't want to go on record voting for yet more pork, so the powers that be decided to forego the vote and "deem" the budget passed.
Dan Rather crystallized this leftist tactic when he was caught relying on falsified documents regarding George Bush's war record. Rather declared that the documents were "fake, but accurate." This mind set of believing whatever comports with one's ideology despite facts to the contrary has spread throughout the culture and has become an accepted practice on the left. Hey, even if there is no proof, it's true. So there. And if you don't agree, you're a racist homophobe. End of discussion.
Twenty years of promoting homosexuality, under the guise of "tolerance" has resulted in legitimizing what used to be officially labeled an aberrant lifestyle. For today's children, being gay is a choice. It is an extension of the cult of "empowerment" that teaches kids that they have the right to define their own reality - and the right to sleep with whomever they choose, regardless of gender.
The celebration of homosexuality by the political and media elite is constant. Popular shows like "Law and Order" routinely have well-known characters parrot the unproven "gay-gene" theory as fact. CBS's management, in order to maintain their politically correct credentials, have just agreed to include more gay characters on their shows.
Being gay is now considered "cutting edge." Young girls routinely swap spit as a way to show how with it they are. Young boys are being encouraged to not only tolerate the gay lifestyle, but to accept it as a legitimate lifestyle option.
For celebrities and celebrity wannabes, coming out of the closet is a great way to achieve a quick 15 minutes of fame - and gain instant cachet.
So to you, Neal Boortz, I say that being homosexual in America today is most definitely a choice. It is a choice that has dire ramifications for the future of America . And for the poor kids who are being used as pawns in the progressive's war on tradition, marriage, God, and family.
