Penguins, dog vomit and human sexuality

By Gary DeMar
Read entire article here: WND

"And Tango Makes Three" is an illustrated children's book about two male penguins that raise a baby penguin. It's based on a true story of two male penguins in New York City's Central Park Zoo that "adopt" a fertilized egg and raise the chick as their own. Some concerned parents see the book as a homosexual propaganda piece and want it removed from the library's regular shelves. A parent would have to consent before his or her child could check out the book.

There's no doubt the book is being pushed as a homosexual primer to soften up young minds for the more scholarly propaganda. In "Biological Exuberance," author Bruce Bagemihl claims, "The world is, indeed, teeming with homosexual, bisexual and transgendered creatures of every stripe and feather. ... From the Southeastern Blueberry Bee of the United States to more than 130 different bird species worldwide, the 'birds and the bees,' literally, are queer."

Here's the premise: Whatever animals do in nature is natural. What's natural is normal. What's normal is moral. So if penguins engage in homosexual behavior, then that behavior must be natural, normal and moral. How can we mere mortals impose our rules of sexual behavior on what's natural in the animal kingdom? Homosexuals extrapolate that what animals do naturally in nature applies to what higher animals can do naturally without judgment. But the lower animal/higher animal model breaks down when other so-called natural behaviors in animals are considered. For example, the Bible states, "It has happened to them according to the true proverb, 'A dog returns to its own vomit' (Proverbs 26:11) and, 'A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.'" (2 Peter 2:22) Now, I would like to see the homosexual propagandists explain how these behaviors might explain the normality of animal behavior and its human parallels.

...Of course, given Darwinian assumptions, there is no way to condemn rape on moral grounds. The same could be said for homosexual behavior and everything else. If we are truly the products of evolution, then there can be no moral judgments about anything. So then, if the homosexuals want to use penguins as their moral model, then they need to take all animal behavior into consideration when they build their moral worldview. If we should follow the animal world regarding homosexual penguins and thereby regard human homosexual behavior as normal, then we must be consistent and follow the animal world regarding rape, eating our young and eating our neighbors – and decriminalize these behaviors as well.

I, for one, do not contend that we should look to animals for moral guidance.

I do, however, think that when people claim that homosexuality is "unnatural" they should think carefully about what they mean by "unnatural". Do they mean (as Paul did) the term "unnatural" to be used in terms of "not normal" or or do they mean it (as Augustine did) in terms of a "sin against nature".

Augustine's notion of "sins against nature" is not only unscriptural but on shakey moral ground as he attempts to justify holding certain actions to be "in contradiction with nature itself" which (at least in the case of homosexuality) is patently untrue.

Paul called God's actions "unnatural" and he called long hair "unnatural". It is apparent that the "unnatural" Paul is referring to is different to the "unnatural" Augustine is trying to infer from scripture.

As you have stated, parents need to consent to the book be taken out....


you then state it is a soft puch to promote the homo agenda.

My question is that if the parents need to consent to it, then they must approve of it. So what is the issue?

So what is the issue?

If the homosexuals want to use penguins as their moral model, then they need to take all animal behavior into consideration when they build their moral worldview.

Joe Brummer said...

Sure Mark, But realize under your logic.....

If gays must take all animals into consideration and not just penguins....

THen CHristians must take into conisderation all God's and not just there's...

As you can see the logic fails.

Mark said...

Joe, are you getting enough rest?

THen CHristians must take into conisderation all God's and not just there's...

I do consider them, then I reject them becuase they are man made gods, like the one you know and love.

What's the big deal? Two male penguins took in an egg and raised it. What would have happened to that poor fertilized egg if they did not?

Why didn't the straight penguin couples want it? Maybe they were too busy fighting against gay penguin couples to worry about what happens to those neglected eggs...Shouldn't we be thanking those male penguins for taking in a 'child' that no one wanted?


And maybe someone should warn Gary DeMar about taking the story of the dog and the sow too literally...

Mark, while you choose to put your god above others in your life, you can't expect the government, or the general population, to do the same, because you can't prove your god isn't artificial.
