Joe Carter at The Evangelical Outpost launched a “gay gene” discussion that satirically touches upon the difficulties facing heterosexual couples when one partner suddenly identifies as gay.

Some of the commenters appear reasonably balanced in perspective; others adhere to the strawman that belief in a gay gene is fervent and widespread among gay people. And some commenters are focused squarely on Biblical ramifications of the debate — as they should be, at an evangelical blog.

Randy Thomas of Exodus chimed in to the discussion, declaring he is no longer gay. Great, I responded — except for the redefinition of “gay.” I wished him luck with celibacy — and I meant that with sincerity.

The discussion could use gay-tolerant Christian Biblical input, as well as well-informed and polite comments on nature-vs-nature scientific findings.
