The Ends to Which We Will Go...
...to deny God and His supreme authority to define what is good and what is evil. This latest article on Yahoo news found here gives us a glimpse of the religion of Naturalism at its finest.
Apparently the Oslo Natural History Museum has an exhibit on the allegedly homosexual behavior found among animals. According to Reuters, they conclude that "human homosexuality cannot be viewed as 'unnatural'." Wait, were you shocked? Nah, me neither.
On the one hand, it blew me away because it is utterly ridiculous, but on the other hand, it did not surprise me one bit. It is almost funny, except that... oh yeah... this is real life. According to the article, an exhibit boldly (and quite confidently) proclaims,
"We may have opinions on a lot of things, but one thing is clear -- homosexuality is found throughout the animal kingdom, it is not against nature"
Let's see... what happens when you suppress God's truth and set up your own religion which explains Him away? Well, with no Lawgiver there is no Law. With no moral foundation, you make up all kinds of nonsense - morality is relative, it is a matter of convention, it is a matter of practical benefit to the society... or better... reading our own godless presuppositions about reality into our observations of animals means that if the animals do it, then its natural.
It does make you wonder... how would this logic fly when it comes to animals which eat their young or kill their mates? Hopefully we will never find out. I dunno about you, but I'm building my next house from a combination of hair, straw, and my own feces. You wanna come over for dinner? We're serving runt babies. After all, it is very natural.
This is the song of the depraved heart... if you want to believe it bad enough, you will find a way to justify and "prove" it. We are a pretty confused bunch, huh?
Take note of the careful and objective job the author did in representing the opposition. Find one of those "burn in hell" types and all will be well to fortify the mantra that Naturalism is rational and Christians are nasty bigots who live in unicorn-land. Good job!
