The cheating gene post raised a few hackles and more than a few questions around here. While a few of you called total bullshit on the whole thing, some people gave it a little credit.
Chris’s comment made me stop and think a little…
I can’t speak for anyone else around the Circus, but I personally don’t believe homosexuality, in the majority of people–not saying everyone–is a “choice” I have had more than one or twelve conversations about this with a man that is my heart. We have dissected and discussed over and over again. I just think it’s how we’re made. I just do. You do NOT have to believe this with me. I’m not asking for scripture or for subjecture or for anything else. I am merely telling you how I feel.
It reminded me of a show that we did in college. Chris, Chrome and myself. The Twilight of the Golds. In my opinion, one of the best scripts we ever produced on that stage. In my other opinion (cuz I have more than one) some of the best work any of us on that stage ever did. Just good stuff.
The Golds are a nice Jewish family. Mom, Dad, Sister married happily to Scientist Man, and Gay Brother obsessed with Wagner’s Ring Cycle. Scientist Brother in Law(who is working on the Human Genome Project) and Sister get pregnant and have the gene test done on the fetus. Turns out it has the “gay gene” What do they do.
The cheating gene. The gay gene. The cancer gene. While some seem more far fetched than others, it appears that we live in an age where this information is available. What do we do with it?
Is there enough strength in relationships to step out in faith and say…I will be faithful? While marriage statistics don’t prove it I know people who have been doing this for many many years. Or do we take a test?
Interesting conversation topic.
