Peace comes through chastity
"Rocky Velgos proposes homosexual behavior as normal for [some people] (Letters, Feb. 29). It is not in the authentic nature of human behavior. Homosexual propaganda as inborn, immutable, normal, fulfilling and necessary has no basis in science, as Rocky asserts. Men who have sex with men, MSM, and women who have sex with women, WSW, have been labeled as gays and lesbians by activist groups without hope of knowledge of the innate sexuality of each sex oriented toward the other.
"MSM and WSW behaviors may provide temporary relief from feelings of loneliness, isolation, true identity, inferiority, marginalization, which are characteristic of the condition. Activist organizations trap men and women with same-sex attractions in this condition. Real peace and true acceptance come with chastity, friends who love one without sex and self-acceptance as man or woman without living off another sexually. Peace for those with same-sex desires can be found in religion, authentic science and nonpolitical education, not in repeated acting out in sexual encounters."
