Gay or Nay

The 21st century has come with many new things for instance a new outlook on homosexuality. Not that homosexuality is a new concept, but that it has become socially acceptable and is celebrated by the entertainment industry — most recently Disney.

Disney Channel has introduced its first gay, supporting character in the popular series “Andi Mack.” Which, in my eyes, is unacceptable and immoral for multiple reasons.

First of all, homosexuality, and sexuality in general, is something that should be taught in the home by parents, not by a businesses or the government. It is a parent’s job to teach and guide their children on what is right and wrong, not society’s.

Secondly, you don’t have the sex talk with a six year old. Why? Because it would be considered too “heavy” for a child and would most likely confuse them. The same goes for talking about homosexuality. A young child hasn’t even figured out their own identity, they don’t need to be worried about their sexual identity.

Thirdly, promoting homosexuality or being homosexual is biblically immoral. In a country that was founded on Christian principles, many would agree that the Bible is generally a good moral compass, and the Bible specifically state that acts of homosexuality is a sin: 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men (or women) who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (ESV)” When God created the world he made it perfect with one man and one woman, only when mankind sinned and messed up the perfect world did homosexuality — along with a slew of other sins — enter the world. You don’t see Disney promoting stealing or getting drunk, so why promote homosexuality, especially to young children.
