Reply to Scott

Scott made some excellent points about my last blog entry, “Men and Women.”

Before I get to his points, I want to quote one statement he made:

“I believe some people could even have a higher tendency to murder.”

They do. Identical twins who were adopted by widely different parents at birth tended to commit the same crimes at the same age, and that can’t be a result of their environments.

Identical twins have identical genes. They even have the same fingerprints. So the ideal way of testing heredity versus environment is by tracking the many identical twins who were adopted into entirely different environments at birth.

Plenty of this has been done. Have you noticed that you NEVER hear about those studies?

If ANY of those studies came out in favor of environment over heredity, if ANY of them did, you would hear about that study every day. You don’t EVER hear about ANY of them.

Falwell, Robertson and the rest say homosexuality cannot be inherited because it is a sin, an act of will. As Scott points out, those same preachers insist that man is born of a sinful nature.

But these “Christians” are not satisfied with saving souls. They have to dictate cosmology and say the world was created in six days. They have to dictate medical research by saying a fertilized egg is as important as a five-year-old child. And they have to dictate genetics, too.

As to Scott’s point about boy-molesting priests, every all-male community fosters boy molesting. In the Victorian all-male “public” (meaning private) schools, almost every Senior Boy had a young bed-mate.

But a priest only molested little boys personally. Every Catholic bishop knew that some bishops were causing THOUSANDS of little boys to be molested by transferring boy-molesters from church to church. The bishops who knew about it, and ALL of them did, were as guilty as the bishops who did it, and those bishops were worse than the priests who did the molestation.

The entire Catholic episcopacy deserved life without parole.

Great Blog entry. Just a comment on homos…

Where Falwell, Robertson, et al go wrong is that even if homosexuality were inherited, and in some cases the tendency might be, it would still be a sin. They spend so much time insisting it’s not inherited, but out of the other corner of their mouth they say we are born with a sin nature, which is true. Everyone has a weakness. Everyone has a sin nature. I believe some people could even have a higher tendency to murder. Does this mean they will inevitably murder someone? Perhaps they have a hot temper and have a hard time controlling themselves. This doesn’t excuse them for murder… they would still go to jail. Not all hot-tempered people kill.

Why are so many priests child molesters? Could it be that many homos who want to repress their nature join the priesthood because of Catholicism’s arcane rules against priest marriage and, since they wouldn’t marry anyway, want to try and serve God that way? Some would naturally stray and, like many homos, their true nature would come out in the form of child molestation? Some might stay true and repress it all their lives, staying celibate, and good for them if they do! But either way, there is no excuse for homosexuality. They should still go to jail.
