Bill Muehlenberg's posting of 8 March 2012 on his blog puts forward the very reasonable (tongue in cheek) argument that if one accepts the lie that homosexuals are 'born that way' then equally homophobes are 'born that way too' – so get over it.

"The militant homosexual lobby likes to cement its case for radical social engineering by saying their lifestyle is an innate, unchosen condition, one which is likely genetic in basis and therefore unalterable. Of course this ignores the tens of thousands of people who have decisively left the homosexual lifestyle.

It also ignores real science, not the puff pieces found in the media. But I document this all in detail in my new book, Strained Relations. However for the sake of argument, let's accept the genetic explanation. Some people are simply destined to live this way because their genes have predetermined this.

OK, but then this argument must cut both ways. All those people out there who are adamantly opposed to homosexuality can also be considered to be driven by their genes. Clearly there is a "homophobia" gene which accounts for their disposition.

Thus the homosexual activists will have to come up with a new ploy – simply calling their opponents "homophobes" is as helpful as calling them red-haired or right-handed. Of course they are homophobes – they can't help it. Indeed, they were born that way."

Another way of showing how pathetic and groundless the whole homosexual agenda is to demand that their rights count for more than others.
