How do "children" end up somehow declaring that they are "gay"? Did someone coach them or coerce them to declare themselves "gay"? How would an 8-14 yr old boy ever recognize that they are gay? Do they start committing sodomy as young minors and if so with whom? Or most likely there are homosexual pedophiles who sexually assult young boys and in the process coerce them to homosexual lifestyle?
I ask these questions, because I think that most stories of "children or early teens" who somehow declare themselves to be "gay" are in fact, coached & coerced to say that. I was in Boy Scouts for 6 years (as well as Cub Scouts) and in fact we all went nude swimming on Boy Scout swim night at the Univ of Wis-Stout swimming pool. The issue of "gay" was never and I mean never considered to be any issue or even recognition of gay. We had multiple overnight camp-outs with not even a hint of homosexual behavior. I think that stories of so-called "gay" children or early teens are in fact a bunch of lies being perpetuated by the adult gays & perverts to make it appear as if being a homo pervert is overwhelmingly widespread.
And from Romans 1:18-32, we know that homosexuality & lesbian lifestyle are unnatural and the lowest form of reprobate, devian behavior & outright rebellion against God.
I’d answer your questions, but you seemed to do a good job answering them yourself, and I think we are pretty much in total agreement.
