In fact, I want to take this a step further.
I want to say not only does this argument scapegoat gay people and make that sort of mistake, it actually is a greater threat to the family than what it's trying to fight.
Let me tell you another story.
Many years ago when I lived in New York, there was a guy, Joe.
He had a wife and several small kids, and they went to my church.
0And, one night, I saw Joe out at a gay bar.
At first, I wasn't even sure if it was him because, how could that be Joe? He has a wife and kids.
0And, but every time I looked over him, he do this. It's kind of conspicuous in a gay bar.
So, I went over to him and I tapped him on the shoulder and said, "Joe, what are you doing here?"
0And Joe, who was about ten years older than I am, explained to me that when he was growing up, being gay was just not an option, and he felt a lot of pressure to "do the right thing," which, for him, meant marrying and having children, but it wasn't really working for him.
So, he was living this double life.
