Yet another study that raises questions about homosexuality and its causes suggests the issue deserves to be examined and debated.
The latest controversial findings come from Dr. Lisa Diamond, a lesbian activist and researcher with the American Psychological Association. Her study of human sexuality refutes the born-that-way argument that homosexual activists have claimed as a defense for their behavior.
Diamond's study comes after two researchers at Johns Hopkins University released a study in August also suggesting the lack of a "gay gene" to prove a biological factor. That study can be read here.
Peter LaBarbera, who exposes homosexual activism through his Americans for Truth organization, says the two studies have damaged the born-that-way argument to the point that scientists will return to studying causation of sexual orientation.
"And here's where they get into trouble," he predicts, "because the causation a lot of times is bad circumstances in childhood of the homosexual."
Those circumstances often include incest and sexual abuse, and a strained relationship between a father and son, he says.
LaBarbera compares those circumstances to tragic beliefs about food that can lead to anorexia. No one claims anorexia is healthy and normal, he points out, and instead try to help people who struggle with it.
If closer studies began to point to sexual abuse and father-son problems, LaBarbera says, "how can they then say that homosexual orientation is normal and good?"
The study from Johns Hopkins also found a corollary between same-sex attraction and childhood sexual abuse, OneNewsNow reported last month.
