Ever wondered how come you lucked out in the sexuality stakes? Why you get to enjoy long relaxing bumming sessions and then get to share clothes with your partner while others do not?
Well, an erudite imam (that’s a Muslim spell-maker) from a Lower Manhattan Community Center is here to put you straight, both figuratively and, if he could only summon the help of a deity, literally.
Wondering why you’re gay? If you’re sitting comfortably, then we’ll begin…
‘An enormously, overwhelming percentage of people struggle with homosexual feeling because of some form of violent emotional or sexual abuse at some point in their life,’ said the man who believes in things that patently do not exist. He must be a scientist or something!
‘Again, not necessarily in their childhood….A small, tiny percentage of people are born with a natural inclination they cannot explain. You find this in the animal kingdom on some level as well.’
Wish we could get some figures on that small, tiny percentage. Wish we could get figures on the numbers of gay men turned bad by abuse. Wish we could get some figures on most of the things these muppets come out with.
But figures is not a strong point with religiouses. Never has been. We fear will never be.
