Gay people not ‘born that way,’ sexual orientation not fixed – US study

Source: RT

A cross-discipline study has challenged the belief that human sexuality and gender identity are determined by biology and remain fixed, saying that there is no scientific proof of this. The study cautioned against drastic medical treatment for transgender children.

The notion that sexual orientation is predetermined by biology is an important part of the current LGBT discourse. If a person has no choice over whether to be gay or not, society cannot demand that he or she be straight, so the argument goes.

But regardless of its political worth, the “born this way” paradigm is not backed up by sufficient scientific data, according to a new paper published in the autumn issue of the New Atlantis, a journal focusing on political, societal and ethical ramifications of technological advances.

The study does not claim that being gay is a choice, merely that stating the opposite may be wrong.

    1. We are all sinner, so we do not have the right to judge others, let Allah judge His people,his creation.

    2. Allah forbid people to insult other belief, others lifestyle etc Let Allah judge His creation.

    3. Please accept and respect other belief, lifestyle etc in order we can live without judging others and will result a peaceful society.

    4. Once you start to judge other, you start creating conflict and then will couse sivilwar as we see in Middle East etc

    Old interpretation; Often we hear from Media that Extremist clerics from Jews, Christian and Muslim against Home sexual acts, gay-lesbian marriage and adopt children. They insult, and discriminate against Gay and Lesbian community. Even Extremist Muslim Clerics punish and kill them, in Muslim countries. Why?
    They said according his old interpretation of God’s revelation that God condemn the act of Homosexuality, and Marriage only between a man and a woman. Also extremist Muslim believe in Ancient Arab tradition hadits like this one;

    Word of the Prophet, “If you have people who do act like the people of Lut (liwath) then kill the perpetrators.” (Narrated by Abu Daud, Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)

    This is ancient Arab tradition is not applicable anymore, because Allah already changed His laws in Bible and Al Quran. So this Hadits should be abolished from the book of Hadits.

    Modern interpretation; Based on al Quran, Allah condemn all kind of sins, from a small sins to the biggest sins. The biggest sin is not the act of homosexuality, but those who worship beside God alone (Musyik). Allah never asked His prophets to ban and to punish those who makes sins, Allah asked His prophets to punish those who make crime. We all are sinner,including the scholars who know religion and including the rulers. No one is allowed to judge and to punish anybody for his sins. If anybody punish anyone who made sins, it will be a war or conflict . Allah does not want His people kill one another. Allah wants all His people live in peace and harmony.

    There are so many gay-Lesbian who successful and prosperity. Some of them have good job and good position in Government as well as private company.

    All people are sinner,
    There is no one in this earth who does what is right all the time and never makes a mistake.Ecc.7:20

    There is no compulsion and force in God’s religion.
    Otherwise God said; love all people as God love you all.
    From Bible.
    Today I am giving you a choice between good and evil, or between a blessing and a curse, between life and death. (Deuteronomy 30; 1,15)

    He who is unjust, let him unjust still.
    He who is filthy, let him be filthy still
    He who is righteous, let him be righteous still.
    He who is holy,let him be holy still.(Rev;22:11).

    So it is very clear that Allah give the freedom to His people to choose his lifestyle, and Allah do not ask the authority to punish those who make sins or do Homosexuality.

    From Al Quran.
    There is no compulsion in God’s religion.QS 2;256.
    And showed him the two ways? QS 90;10.( God’s way, and evil’s way.)

    And say, “The truth is from your Lord. Now, whoever so wills may believe and whoever so wills may deny.” QS 18;29.

    Whoever goes right, then he goes right only for the benefit of his ownself. And whoever goes astray, then he goes astray to his own loss. No one laden with burdens can bear another’s burden.QS 17;15

    And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed, all of them together. So, will you (O Muhammad SAW) then compel mankind, until they become believers. QS 10;99

    ”your(Muhammad(saw) duty is only to convey (the Message) and on Us is the reckoning”. QS 13:40.

    So based on God’s laws above, that God have given people the freedom to choose his own way of life. No one can force anybody to obey God’s law, even Government has no right to punish those who make sins, as we are all sinner.

    God create people and provide the law for people. Only God has the right to judge, punish His People. All people are equal before God.

    We have to distinguish between sinful act and criminal act.
    Sexuality between man and man or woman and woman is not criminal act. They do based on love each other. Therefore, government has no right to punish them.

    What is done by extremist clerics of various religions insulting and punishing the gay and lesbian is wrong act, evil act and misleading.

    President Obama with his power, help to gain the right of the oppressed Gay-Lesbian community in America as well as Mathin Luther King who gained the right of the oppressed the black America in 1960.

    May Allah guide all my brothers to the right path.Amen
    For You from My Heart.
    All those who read shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; O Allah, be my witness, that I have conveyed your message to your people.
    With all my love.
