Fixing Gay Babies
Folks are hopping mad over a comments of the president of a leading Baptist seminary that suggested that, if we had the means to do so, we should diagnose and provide prenatal treatment to prevent babies from being homosexual. It's an interesting question, and there are some interesting insights offered in the article. But you have to wade through all the vitriol of the folks who can't seem to simmer down whenever the issue of homosexuality arises. I mean, sure, there are interesting religious issues to talk about. But come on, hasn't anyone seen Gattaca? There is a much bigger, scarier issue here, if we can stop talking about our bits and pieces for a cotton pickin' minute.
