We hear she also thinks apples & oranges are one and the same

by Jeremy Hooper

Laurie Higgins, a teacher's aide at Illinois' Deerfield High School who loves to engage in this so-called culture war, has today made the following comments on the American For Truth website:

Neither Mr. LaBarbera nor I believe that homosexuals choose the feelings they have anymore than those who are attracted to adolescents or children or their siblings choose their powerful attractions, or those married men who are attracted to other women choose those attractions, or those who are powerfully drawn toward gambling or alcohol or drugs choose those attractions. We do believe, however, that those who experience same-sex attraction choose how they will respond to their desires, just as I choose how to respond to my selfish, or greedy, or angry, or lustful desires. Some in society tell you that acting on same-sex impulses is legitimate and good. They have lied to you, and it is a cruel lie.

We offer this reply:

"WHY DO YOU WHO PROTEST GAYS NEVER THINK TO COMPARE HOMOSEXUALITY TO HETEROSEXUALITY, RATHER THAN TO THINGS LIKE ADULTERY OR ADDICTION?! WHY DO YOU COMPARE THE 'CHOICE' TO HAVE SAME-SEX SEX TO 'BEHAVIORS' THAT ARE THEMSElVES VARIANTS IN WHICH ANYONE OF ANY ORIENTATION CAN ENGAGE, RATHER THAN TO WHAT SHOULD BE HOMOSEXUALITY'S MOST LOGICAL COUNTERPART: HETEROSEXUALITY?!

Laurie, we gays don't respond to our sexual desires "
just as [you] choose how to respond to [your] selfish, or greedy, or angry, or lustful desires." We respond to our sexual desires just as you respond to your own -- wait for it, wait for it, wait for it -- SEXUAL DESIRES!!! Those other aspects of your character are things that exist within all of human nature! Making a comparison between those things and the completely unrelated concept of biological sexual attraction and compatibility is like comparing a condom to a balloon!

STOP BEING SO DECEITFUL! If not for us, then for the gay public school students to whom you are entrusted to give helpful advice, not exclusionary, duplicitous dogma!
"
