If my Intelligence is average
And my skin color is black,
My eye color—brown,
And my hair color: black,
... I am normal.

If my body type is muscular 
And my height is 5’11”,
My weight—256 pounds,
And my strength: powerful,
... I am normal.

If my national origin is African
And I am a Buddist,
My sex—male,
And I prefer Brussels sprouts,
... I am normal.

If I’m a medical doctor
And I like Hip-Hop music,
My health—excellent, 
And my sexual tendency: gay,
... I am normal.


Most people might accept the facts above,
But the last one might make some people pause.
Being male or female appears okay,
But doesn’t gayness go against natures laws?

Nature won’t make a being that’s wrong;
God 's laws are that precise.
Whatever he fashions must be exact
Our "God does not play dice."

You are definitely what I hope to be "A Normal" teacher! Thanks for reminding us of God's infinite wisdom.

Powerful writing! Someone made the statement recently (which has been said countless times) that homosexuals can't change. But I know of some who have. Just this week, I heard of a ministry that helps individuals wanting victory over homosexual attractions. It's called Exodus International and, of course, has a web site.
If that can't be located, typing Dennis Jernigen into the search bar should do it.
