Seattle Times science reporter Sandi Doughton has an in depth piece today on the growing body of science that shows sexual orientation to be strongly influenced by genetics and/or prenatal conditions. ["Born gay? How biology may drive orentation."]
“It’s pretty definitive that biological factors play a role in determining a person’s sexual orientation.”
If science proves homosexuality is innate, is there any basis to deny gays equal treatment — including the right to marry?
Hmm. If this were simply a legal question, science would play an important role in determining the answer. But let me rephrase the question into a moral and ethical context.
Marriage is about love and commitment. How is this ever a bad thing?
