HOMOSEXUALITY: When did definition of courage change?

Re: “It takes courage to be the first to stand up” (Leonard Pitts Jr. column, 5-1).

When did the definition of courage change to include an individual’s sexual proclivities? Does not courage mean valor and heroism? Just how does a person’s sexual inclination convert to being unduly noble?

If you believe in the “born homosexual” myth, you must also embrace the notion that every individual is “born” with certain sexual tendencies. You must also believe that people are “born” with adulterous, polygamous, bisexual and pederasty tendencies to escape discrimination.

Why have the secular media never celebrated and labeled as “courageous” the adulterous behaviors of professional athletes? After all they are only acting on their natural “inborn” desires. If the next professional athlete “comes out” and announces that he or she is a pedophile, will we also celebrate their “courage” for being “the first to stand up” and for saying “me too”?

Homosexuality is not about the person. It is about what the person does. The celebration for “coming out” is purely political. Traditional value Americans are being oppressed by the tyranny of the pant-wetting, secular, politically correct left. It is nothing more than an in-your-face, you-are-a-villain-if-you-don’t-abandon-traditional-values agenda.
