Is Your Baby Gay?

Surfing the ‘net again. The Christians have created a new fear – that a gay baby may have taken up residence in your uterus. Horrors! We liked it much better when Mia Farrow was infested with the Spawn of Satan in the movie “Rosemary’s Baby.”

Is Your Baby Gay? Pretty soon, a DNA test could tell you

In a culture that encourages us to customize everything from our Nikes to our venti skinny lattes, perhaps it is only a matter of time before baby-making becomes just another consumer transaction. Already have a girl? Make this one a boy! Want to impress your boho friends? Make a real statement with lesbian twins!

Is Your Baby Gay? What If You Could Know? What If You Could Do Something About It?

Christians must be very careful not to claim that science can never prove a biological basis for sexual orientation. We can and must insist that no scientific finding can change the basic sinfulness of all homosexual behavior. The general trend of the research points to at least some biological factors behind sexual attraction, gender identity, and sexual orientation. This does not alter God’s moral verdict on homosexual sin (or heterosexual sin, for that matter), but it does hold some promise that a deeper knowledge of homosexuality and its cause will allow for more effective ministries to those who struggle with this particular pattern of temptation. If such knowledge should ever be discovered, we should embrace it and use it for the greater good of humanity and for the greater glory of God.

The Christian Century: Mohler would favor altering ‘gay’ fetus

A prominent Southern Baptist said he would support medical treatment, if it were available, to change the sexual orientation of a fetus inside its mother’s womb from homosexual to heterosexual.

The idea of a hormonal patch for pregnant women was discussed by R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, on his blog,, on March 2.

“If a biological basis is found, and if a prenatal test is then developed, and if a successful treatment to reverse the sexual orientation to heterosexual is ever developed, we would support its use as we should unapologetically support the use of any appropriate means to avoid sexual temptation and the inevitable effects of sin,” Mohler wrote.

At some point you have to just STOP and think. An embryo isn’t gay. It *can’t* be gay. It doesn’t have gonads or sex hormones or even the basis of a central nervous system, much less the desire to use these things in potentially offensive ways. What an embryo is, say the anti-women groups, is the potential to be a full-grown god-fearing Crown of Creation.

A fetus gradually develops gonads and a nervous system, but sex hormones don’t kick in for years. There’s no cause to start “altering” gay fetuses. You know, if you don’t spend a lot of time agonizing over exactly what kind of fun other people are having in their bedrooms, homosexuality becomes a complete non-issue.

You know, I hear they have therapy for phobias these days. Can we put homophobia in the DSM-V?
