Homosexuality is one thing, an ethnic group, or a racial designation is something else. The fundamental basis for thinking that race and sexuality are analogous is the assumption that both are equally natural, that neither is a choice.
Some human characteristics are changeable and some are fixed. It is evident that no one chooses to be Caucasian, Asian, or African. No one can change his racial heritage. It just is. He can announce to the world that he identifies with or as another racial classification but that doesn’t change what he actually is. Cultural characteristics, habits, and practices are quite different. One may be born into one culture and by choice and decision change one’s cultural identification, characteristics, and habits. A Frenchman can decide to give up his language and adopt English instead. He can give up French cuisine for German. He may study to become aware of prevailing French assumptions and habits about work and leisure and adopt prevailing Nigerian instead. Voluntarily changing outlook, habits, and practices, however, does not change one’s racial heritage.
The prophet Jeremiah (13:23) asks rhetorically,
Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots?
What is it when million of otherwise rational people believe something to be true that is either uncertain or completely false? It’s a mass social delusion. It happens.
Is being homosexual like being black?
