Over at Patheos, Warren Throckmorton has brought our attention to Dr. Ben Carson’s apology for saying that being gay is a choice. In his apology, which you will find on his Facebook page, Dr. Carson pointed out that:
I’m a doctor trained in multiple fields of medicine, who was blessed to work at perhaps the finest institution of medical knowledge in the world. Some of our brightest minds have looked at this debate, and up until this point there have been no definitive studies that people are born into a specific sexuality. We do know, however, that we are always born male and female. And I know that we are all made in God’s image, which means we are all deserving of respect and dignity.
