And natural law suggests the reason behind that: Things work a certain way because they were designed a certain way. When you misuse them, things start to break down. And this doesn?t just apply to homosexuals; the high rate of sexually transmitted disease among promiscuous heterosexuals demonstrates this fact as well.

Kramer, Cohen, and others are right to suggest that homosexuals must change their behavior. And though it?s not a popular thing to say, I have to add that they need to change their mindset as well. People who are seeking solace for their pain in promiscuous sex and drug abuse don?t just need to practice ?safe sex?; they need to seek healing from the only One who can truly redeem them. That?s not a ?homophobic? statement; that?s being loving?offering the only real hope any of us, sinners whom we all are, will ever know.
