Mission to America Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“As Christians we do not condemn those who have a tendancy toward homosexuality, just as we do not condemn a sociopath who respects other people. However, just as we do not accept the wrong behavior of a sociopath, we do not accept the wrong behavior (sexual relationships with the same sex) of homosexuals. Marriage, which involves consumation of a relation with physical with sex, between two people of the same sex involves wrong behavior. Just as we condemn a sociopath, not because they are a sociopath, but because of their wrong behavior, we also condemn homosexual behavior and condemn homosexual marriage as wrong.”
