There are politically correct terms that have dominated our culture and then there is the truth and realistic perspectives that the same sinful culture attempts to suppress at any cost. Such is the case with Cynthia Nixon, of Sex and the City fame. In a recent interview with the New York Times, she stated:
“I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line ‘I’ve been straight and I’ve been gay, and gay is better.’ And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice. I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice, and you don’t get to define my gayness for me. A certain section of our community is very concerned that it not be seen as a choice, because if it’s a choice, then we could opt out. I say it doesn’t matter if we flew here or we swam here, it matters that we are here and we are one group and let us stop trying to make a litmus test for who is considered gay and who is not.”
It’s amazing how a group which promotes a perverse lifestyle will turn on their own, on a dime, if that person deviates from the ideology’s script. Nixon is a famous actress and one of the chief promoters of the LGBT agenda and even she states the obvious – being a homosexual is a choice. Did I miss something? Haven’t we Christians been saying this for a long time? Yet the sympathizers continue to spread the flames and the lies of the gay agenda and Christians are seen as the “two-bit whack jobs” for espousing the truth. So why is it that when Nixon states the obvious, there isn’t as intense a backlash as is usually present against Christians who say the exact same thing? Why do her words legitimize the truth in many people’s eyes and the Bible’s words do not? Interesting and disturbing at the same time, I’d say.
Nixon also noted: “Why can’t it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate? It seems we’re just ceding this point to bigots who are demanding it, and I don’t think that they should define the terms of the debate. I also feel like people think I was walking around in a cloud and didn’t realize I was gay, which I find really offensive. I find it offensive to me, but I also find it offensive to all the men I’ve been out with.”
Please understand, I do not condone homosexuality and neither am I attempting to brush off Cynthia’s sexual orientation or escapades as normal. Neither do I agree with her statement that many people are born gay. Still, I cannot disagree with the truth. And in a measure, she has stated it. The reality is that homosexuality is a choice and that there are bigots within the gay agenda ready to denigrate those that disseminate the truth.
