Fingall's points not accurate

In the SUNDAY SUN of August 11 Mac Fingall made some points that I agree with fully. I fully agree that sexual relations between persons of the same gender is abnormal and that the human body was not designed to facilitate this. But Fingall then goes on to make some statements of dubious credibility. The first of them is that same-gender marriage could “spell the end of mankind”. The truth is that same-gender marriage can have no impact on the population of mankind. Reproduction takes place when people of opposite genders cohabit. Fingall also makes the claim that HIV/AIDS is God’s punishment for engaging in the abnormal act of homosexual relations. But why did he stop at homosexual relations? Does God not also have a punishment for fornication and adultery, two sins that are so prevalent in our society and strongly condemned in The Bible? And then we have the question of children in homosexual relationships, clearly not the ideal environment for a child. But Fingall’s suggestion that children in such relationships might be influenced by the behaviour of their parents begs the question as to why children in normal parental relationships still become homosexual. Clearly, they were not influenced by being raised in a “normal” environment.
