In this article I would like to look at homosexuality from two angles: one the fact that the homosexual lifestyle is destructive to the one who lives it as well as to others and the second angle is the fact homosexuals should not be allowed to adopt children. I was sad to read about the death of Casey Johnson. It is a sad story that seems to be repeated often among people who live immoral lives, especially among homosexuals (lesbians). Ms Johnson seemed to have it all. She was the heiress of the Johnson and Johnson company. She had all of the money and fame that a person could want. She seemed to have the good life at the moment and for the future. For whatever reason (she was probably influenced by other homosexuals) she decided to live the homosexual life style. As I have written before and as the Bible teaches, the homosexual lifestyle is a self destructive way of life which more times than not leads to an early death. Some will claim that drugs and alcohol were the cause of Ms Johnson’s death but the sad fact is, most of the time, the homosexual lifestyle is intertwined with drugs and alcohol. I have a friend who is a former homosexual. He explained to me the lifestyle that went along with homosexuality. First of all, he chose to be homosexual (he freely admits it) and once he became a homosexual he could not leave the lifestyle for 15 years. He wanted to stop but he was a slave. His life was ruined by his homosexual lifestyle but he could not stop. He even received the death sentence of HIV which became AIDS and still could not stop. Only after he repented from his sin and chose to become a follower of Jesus Christ was he able to leave the destructive homosexual lifestyle. He also shared how drug and alcohol abuse became a vice for him because of the homosexual lifestyle. Ms Johnson has now become a sad statistic but it did not have to be this way. She could have been set free from her slavery to homosexuality, drug abuse, and alcoholism but either she never heard the Gospel or she heard it and chose not to accept God’s salvation.
The second angle is the fact that Ms Johnson was allowed to adopt a child, even though she was a lesbian, not being able to raise the child in a healthy family. What kind of future does this little girl have? She had money but no relationship with loving parents. All she had was an alcoholic, drug-addict, lesbian caregiver (I really cannot write mother, sorry). God created the family to be a man and wife with the purpose of raising children. Children need a mother and father in the house in order to be raised correctly and be given the best opportunity in life. When children are adopted by homosexuals they (the children) are given a disadvantage in life because they are raised in a household (I cannot write family either) that has deviated from the original purpose. There are some aspects of a father that children need in their lives and there are aspects of a mother. Two moms or two dads leaves the needs of the child unmet. It would have been better for the child that Ms Johnson adopted to have been adopted by a heterosexual couple (husband and wife) so that she would have a better chance in life. May God help us continue to fight against immorality (not immoral people) for the good of the society in which we live.
