The brouhaha over President-Elect Obama’s choice of Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Forest Lake, CA, and author of The Purpose Driven Life,  to give the invocation at his inauguration is mind-boggling to me.  Because he supported Proposition 8, he in the minds of the homosexual community, is unfit to pray.  Ok then.  Same old, same old, yarn – because you don’t support gay marriage you are a homophobe.  You are a hate monger, etc., etc.  Yawn.

In the midst of all of this Warren gives an interview with Ann Curry.

ANN CURRY: Your position [on gay marriage] has raised the spectre that you are homophobic.

Warren responds with a hearty laugh.

CURRY: You laugh, but that is why gay people are angry.

RICK WARREN: Well, I could give you a hundred –

CURRY: Are you homophobic?

WARREN: I don’t know any church in America that’s done more to help the gay community, particularly with AIDS, than Saddleback. But the hate speech against me is incendiary.

CURRY: If science finds that this is biological, that people are born gay, would you change your position?

WARREN: No, and the reason why is because we all have biological predispositions. I’m naturally inclined to have sex with every beautiful woman I see. But that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do.

I love Warren’s vivid, but true example.  Just because we have a natural predisposition toward a particular sin or vice does not mean we have license to engage in that behavior.  It may seem natural to do so, but that doesn’t make it right.  So the natural inclination argument for homosexual behavior doesn’t wash.
