I was horrified to learn that homosexuals may soon be permitted to serve openly in the armed services. This was an inevitable consequence of having earlier allowed left-handed people to serve openly.

When we first started accepting left handed people as though they were just like everyone else, we were on a slippery slope that led to this. If God had wanted people to be homosexual or left-handed, he would have made them that way.

God does not hate homosexuals or left-handed people but he does hate it when they act that way; it is rebellious.
It is still revolting to me to see a person write openly with his left hand in a public place. Do these people have no shame?
