Nick Symmonds is an American middle distance runner who won a silver medal at the World Track and Field Championships that are being held in Moscow. While not a homosexual himself, he believes in the moral normalization of homosexuality:
“As much as I can speak out about it, I believe that all humans deserve equality as however God made them,” he told R-Sport after running a 1:43.55 at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium. “Whether you’re gay, straight, black, white, we all deserve the same rights.”
“However God made them”? How many times have we heard people justify an action by claiming, “Well, that’s the way God made me”? Take that before a judge and see how far it gets you.
Fill in the black: “_________________ because God made me this way.”
Being black or white is not a behavior. Sexual acts are, and there are lots of them that can’t be justified under the rubric of “that’s the way God made me.” Are we to sanction any and all sexual acts of heterosexuals by arguing that whatever a person does is God-made?
