You may be confused as to what to believe. Are people born gay? Perhaps some have said to you that they choose to live a certain lifestyle simply because of their genes. Patrick Madrid believes this answer is quite simple.
In this clip of The Patrick Madrid Show, caller Maria from Clarkston, Georgia expresses her concerns about the idea of people being born gay and questions if there is a “gay gene.” Patrick responds by discussing ongoing scientific research into a genetic predisposition to homosexuality. While saying that there is no consensus yet, he considers the worst-case scenario where such a genetic factor is discovered. He compares this situation to other genetic predispositions, such as alcoholism among certain populations, emphasizing the importance of avoiding harmful behaviors even if there is a genetic inclination.
Patrick argues that regardless of genetic predispositions, the Christian perspective calls for pursuing holiness, virtue, and avoiding sinful behaviors, including acting on sexual impulses indiscriminately. He emphasizes the biblical teachings on marriage and procreation, asserting the importance of adhering to these principles, citing Jesus’ words from Matthew chapter 19 as a basis for his stance.
