Resolving The Abandonment Issues In Sexual Orientation, Marriage and Family By: J. Ray Rice, M.S.W., A.C.S.W. - All Rights Reserved

“Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.”

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King’s quote speaks to the politics of humankind. You only have to look at the behaviors and actions of how we can tell a lie long enough, and offer enough, to be preceded as the truth. Our politicians do this to us to influence public opinion so they can lie to us. We quote our bibles and our belief systems to justify our prejudices, hateful acts, and discrimination against people or groups we do not like.

The crudest of these actions outside of beating, castrating, or murdering homosexuals is throwing them out of our families and denying them their equal rights or protections under the law! Presently Florida is going to try against to legalize discrimination against homosexuals by banning gay marriages in their state constitution. Presently 27 states have banned gay-marriages. California’s Superior Court just ruled it was unconstitutional to ban gays from marrying. People who disagree with this ruling by the highest court in their state feel that their religious beliefs have been abandoned. They are preparing to pass a discrimination law in November making gay marriages illegal.

Homosexuals have been present since the beginning of humankind. An excellent account of this is given in Love, Honor & Respect: How to Confront Homosexual Bias and Violence in Christian Culture (Rev. Buchanan 2000). You should read an excerpt from one of his chapters…History on Homosexually. He points out that people who profess to know what God thinks should remember the teaching of Jesus, "Do not judge so that you may not be judged." (Matthew 7:1).

How can we as individuals or as a society expect or demand that people of other nations and belief systems respect our right to existence in freedom when we fail to accept our own people’s rights to do the same? Even when they would not agree with our decision to respect human rights. You cannot assist others to achieve what we as individuals or as a society have failed to do ourselves!

Homosexuals have been present since the beginning of human reproduction. Why would I make this statement? Human beings are not born in one size, one color, one hair type, one eye color, one personality type nor, one sex. Human beings do not believe in the same concept of religious, do not work the same jobs, do not like the same movies, do not watch the same television program, at the same time, on the same day, seating on the same chair. Human beings do not like the same foods; purchase them at the same time, grown from the same farm, from the same seed. Therefore, what human logic supports the concepts that people are born only heterosexual?

Heterosexual intercourse produces babes that are gay, lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual, and transgender individuals. None of these individuals have abandoned their sexually orientations by being how they are as individuals. The idea that gay, lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual, or transgender is a personal choice of one’s sexual preferences makes no sense! This thought process is faulted! People are who they! The interjection of religion beliefs into the biological root of human sexuality is wrong. The theory that there is a biological root to sexuality is support in a news article on Reuters.

Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender individuals are not only not abandoning heterosexuals or their religion beliefs; it is heterosexuals and their religious beliefs that are abandoning the people that God has made for us to love! Discrimination toward any individuals or groups of people is wrong and immortal. This discrimination supports immortal acts and behaviors that are destroying the very institutions these people are saying they are protecting.

Not accepting our children, because of their sexuality, is destroying our families! Homosexuals and transgender individuals are not are only being abandoned by their families, but they are being abandoned by society, which is allowing legal discrimination based on religious beliefs. American was founded on the bases of freedom of religious beliefs. I did not think it included the right to discriminate.

“Our mistreatment was just not right, and I was tired of it.”

Rosa Parks

I did not like it when blacks had to sit in the back of bus, or could not eat in a restaurant or drink water from a public fountain. Would women have been satisfied with being given an opinion versus the vote? Would blacks be satisfied with being three-quarters of a man?

Would all minorities be satisfied with the old days of everything in America being separate but equal? I do not think so! Then why would you support discrimination again your children, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, cousins, and friends being written into the constitution as legal? They did not choose their sexual orientations, but you are choosing to hate in the name of God!

Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender individuals are not abandoning society or religion by living their sexual orientation. The judging of other people is causing the abandonment of marriage and family.

Understanding the biological sexuality of humans would do the following:

  1. It would stop the break-up of family by parents who are rejecting their children based on their sexual orientation. We do not this to our children born with a handicap or disease, because it would be crude and immorally. Then why are we destroying our families and abandoning our children over their sexual orientation?
  2. We would stop abandoning and damaging our children’s sense of self-worth, their ability to bond, love and trust others.
  3. We would stop damaging our society and abandoning its acceptance of other by justifying discrimination against individuals who have a different sexual orientation. Furthermore, this sets up its citizens to reject and abandon their own children.
  4. It would stop people from feelings they have to marry outside of their sexual orientation in order to not abandon their culture and religious beliefs. This would reduce the abandonment issues their spouses experience in a failed marriage. As importantly, it would reduce the divorce rate.
  5. Supporting homosexuals and transgender marriages would enhance healthier relationships and reduce the spread of STD’s. If you believe AIDS, which was first spread by heterosexuals, is an act of God please watch the video AIDSOrigins.
  6. It would enhance the institution of marriage and support children growing-up in a loving and healthy household.
  7. It would stop the drain and waste of human resources by the discrimination of a person's sexual orientation in the workplace or in the military. Abandon, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is recommended in a new report by Senior Military Leaders.
  8. It would reduce the level of pathology individuals developed over their abandonment issues and experiences for being homosexual.
  9. It would enhance the interpersonal relationships and communication as a society.

We could resolve the abandonment issues over sexual orientation, marry and family by understanding and accepting the biological underpinnings in sexuality orientations.

“God works are links that form a chain of love.”

Mother Teresa
