One of the clichés of the homosexual movement is that some people are born gay. Recently ABC has been promoting this idea with a feature entitled "Can a Baby Be Gay?" First, there was the promo on ABC's Good Morning America. Then there was the special on ABC's 20/20.
As I talk about in my book, A Biblical Point of View on Homosexuality, there has been a deliberate strategy to convince the public that some people are born gay. There have been various studies of cadavers and twins as well as a search for a gay gene. Although many of these have been discredited, the latest round of programs demonstrates that the homosexual activists working through the media have not given up trying to prove that people are born gay.
Robert Knight (Culture and Media Institute) recently wrote about how ABC is following "the script proposed in the gay strategic manual After the Ball, by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen." The authors recommended that activists "use the media to portray homosexuality as in-born, and homosexuals as victims." And as you might imagine they also wanted to portray those with moral or biblical objections to homosexuals as haters and bigots.
When you look at the latest ABC special, you can easily see this strategy being played out. We learn of a boy named Zack who according to his parents was born gay. They believe that homosexuality was in their son's DNA. We are then introduced to a scientist who believes that a substantial contribution to sexual orientation is genetic.
Now do we hear from anyone who disagrees? Well, yes we are introduced to Dr. Stanton Jones. He is introduced as a clinical psychologist and evangelical Christian. By the way, he is the only one introduced by noting his religious affiliation. The clear implication is that his views are religious not scientific. Never mind that Dr. Jones is the co-author of a significant work entitled, Ex-Gays? A Longitudinal Study of Religiously Mediated Change in Sexual Orientation.
As far as I can tell, ABC seems to be following the script of the gay activists, but that doesn't mean it's true. I'm Kerby Anderson, and that's my point of view.
