John Hopkins University’s Study Concludes People Are Not Born Gay


June is the official month for the LGBTQ community, which is affectionally called “Pride Month.”

This past Monday, officials at one of the most respected universities in the country, John Hopkins University, released a report that argues how there is no sufficient evidence suggesting gay, lesbian, or transgender people are born this way (sexual orientation or gender identity).

Many Americans believe people are “born gay” and that there is an organic basis for homosexuality, while most believe the other choice, which is individuals choose that type of lifestyle over a period of time.

Americans have been “forced” to accept the homosexual lifestyle with bullying tactics by the media and Democratic Party. Instead of people living their lives the way they want, there are those who feel this subject has been shoved down their throats and if you disagree publicly, you are targeted, and most are taken to court to force adherence.

The idea there that sexual orientation is fluid, that people change as people grow,” Lawrence Mayer, a co-author of the report and a scholar-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University’s psychiatry department, as well as a professor of statistics and biostatistics at Arizona State University, told The Christian Post. “There are probably some people that identify as hetrosexual [sic] that then later on identified as homosexual, so it goes both ways. The importance there is the fluidity and flexibility that these things change in time.

The three-part, 143-page report, which appeared in the Fall 2016 edition of The New Atlantis, also investigated other commonly accepted ideas about homosexuality and transgenderism. Mayer and his co-author Paul McHugh, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins, challenged the claim that discrimination and social stigma are the only reasons why homosexual and transgender people suffer higher rates of mental health problems and are more likely to commit suicide.

Studies of the brains of homosexuals and heterosexuals have found some differences, but have not demonstrated that these differences are inborn rather than the result of environmental factors that influenced both psychological and neurobiological traits,” the report explained. “One environmental factor that appears to be correlated with non-heterosexuality is child sexual abuse victimization, which may also contribute to the higher rates.” [PJ Media]

Well, there is a reason why John Hopkins, the first hospital in the US to perform sex reassignment surgery, stopped performing the surgery after ten years. They did follow-ups on their patients and found that the majority suffered from extreme depression, high rates of alcohol and drug abuse, and had much higher rates of suicide. They rightly concluded that the surgery did more harm than good.

Progressives care about winning and imposing their ideological vision on others rather than about the conceptual coherence or consistency of that ideological vision.

Consequently, progressive ideology is stitched together from a motley of incompatible, even contradictory, premises. To wit, LGBTQ’s are “born that way,” except that everything is a “social construct,” and there is no such thing as “natural determination” or “human nature.” Along the same lines, LGBTQ’s must be true to their “essential identity” and to “who they really are,” but “essence” is a myth, and all identities are “fluid” and subject to endless re-fashioning.

Such examples could, of course, be multiplied almost indefinitely: Women have universal and inviolable rights, but “universality” is a mask to conceal what is at bottom “Western hegemony.” Patriarchal oppression must be opposed, but Islamic subjection of women must be celebrated in the name of “multiculturalism.” On and on it goes.

In short, whatever evidence biological research may uncover the nature of human sexuality will not affect whatsoever on progressive opinion, unless such evidence happens to comport with the progressive meme-of-the-day.

The bottom line here is that Americans don’t care what you do in your bedroom. That’s your place of privacy, and it’s nobody’s business. Most Americans do not like to be preached to over accepting rules of how to live by, let alone being forced to take something that most feel they can’t support.

Franklin Graham speaks

To all lesbians, gays, bisexuals, & transgenders—

There are many people who will tell you what you want to hear in this life. I hope you will give me an opportunity to tell you the truth here.

Every person on earth shares one thing in common—we are all sinners according to the God who made us. God created us, and He loves us—even more than we can imagine. But we—all of mankind—have a problem, and the Bible calls it sin. Sin is disobedience to God’s laws, and it has infected the entire human race. It is a disease of the soul. The Bible, which is the Word of God and the standard by which we should live, says “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The Bible is also very clear that the penalty for sin is death (Romans 6:23). Mankind is under a death sentence because of sin—but because of God’s great love for us, He sent His Son Jesus Christ from Heaven to this earth on a rescue mission to save you, and me, and everyone from sin.

Jesus Christ took our sins to the cross where He shed His blood and died for our sins, took our sins to the grave, was buried, and on the third day God raised him to life. He’s not dead—He is alive, and He can come into your heart and your life today if you will let Him. The Bible tells us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Sin includes anything that runs counter to God’s Word—His standard for our lives. This includes pride, dishonesty, lack of love for our neighbors, using God’s Name in vain, and loving anything more than Him.

There is also sin involving the misuse of sex. God created sex and gave it to us to enjoy, but tells us in His Holy Word that it is to be reserved for a marriage relationship between a man and a woman. Any kind of sexual activity or sexual relationship outside of that is sin. The world would like to redefine marriage and other boundaries for sex, but it’s not up to us to define. Almighty God, the Creator, set the standard at the beginning of time. The enemies of God would like for you to be deceived, but God wants the best for your life; He wants us to know the truth. God wants all of us to be with Him in heaven in eternity—but our sins block the way.

I love you enough to tell you the truth. I’m a sinner too, and my sins are not any “cleaner” than anyone else’s—they’re just forgiven. When I was 22 years old, I repented of my sins and asked God to forgive me and save me. That night I asked Jesus Christ to come into my life and take control of my life. I’m so thankful for His salvation and to be able to live my life knowing that God has forgiven me of my sins.

The Bible teaches, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” What a promise! I want people everywhere to know that we can be forgiven, cleansed, and set free from the power of sin’s control by believing on Jesus Christ and trusting Him as our Savior and Lord! “If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).

If you’ve never invited Christ into your heart, you can do it right now by praying this prayer from your heart:

“Dear God I am a sinner, I am sorry for my sins. I want to turn from my sins and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ is Your Son who died for me on the cross and that You raised Him to life. I want Him to come into my heart and to take control of my life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as my Lord from this day forward. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.”

I hope you prayed that prayer today. God bless you, and remember God loves you and so do I.


Blessings to you.
