Duck, Duck, Stupid:
Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty

Joe Bialek

Cleveland, OH

Once again the media play up the comments of some overpaid underworked "celebrity" that uses his "status" to spout out some very ugly comments by interpreting the Bible as he sees fit.  Robertson and his  "fearsome foursome" remind me of five hillbillies that got booted from their local 4-H club (in this case standing for Hillbillies Helping Helpless Hillbillies).  And now that all hell has broken loose the only people left hurting are those he has accused.

All this from a "duck hunter" (cum-human-behavior-specialist).

Considering the type of people Jesus was reported to hang out with I don't think homosexual people would be far down the list of those he would embrace.  And why?  Because Jesus embraced all people who were the "dregs" (read as, Outcasts) of society (something to be grasped).  So Phil, the next time you go a-quacking be careful what you say, sir, and understand that in all likelihood Jesus would have eaten duck with you as well as those you hate. So much for arts and entertainment.

Now, to the issue at hand:

A homosexual person is one who is sexually attracted to others of the same sex. Except for a genetic variation of nature, they are virtually identical to their heterosexual counter parts. They feel the very same kind of attraction to the same sex as heterosexuals feel about the opposite sex.

Now, granted, there are those people who freely choose this behavior as a form of "life style" but that accounts for a very small population of homosexuals. In fact, if one is not genetically predispositioned toward this behavior then, by definition, they are not truly homosexual but rather some deviant variation of perverted behavior.

Some would argue that the Bible condemns homosexuality but I believe (through the persistence of science) this behavior will be proven to result from natural genetic variation.

One can draw on the example of the developmentally challenged (no offense intended toward either group) who by no action of their own are born comparatively slow or deficient in mental, physical, or emotional growth. Homosexual people are therefore entitled to engage in sexual behavior consistent with their genetic makeup so long as it is between consenting adults and by extension should be allowed to marry as well.

To deny them this right would be the same as denying heterosexuals their right to consensual sex. Some would argue that sexuality is strictly for the purpose of reproduction, but yet the animal kingdom has many variations of species who also cannot reproduce yet freely copulate.

Humans are sexual beings as was intended by their creator, and to suggest that a genetic variation of nature somehow makes homosexuals less human is indeed an inhuman concept.
