Those who strongly oppose gay marriage
Believe that homosexuality
Is merely a choice they must disparage
As a disgusting abnormality,
Condemned by God’s (alleged) biblical word.
Implicit in this belief is an inference
That sexuality is considered
By them to be a nurtured preference,
Rather than a pure and natural state.
My question is: what was the actual
Occasion, specific time and the date
They chose to be heterosexual,
Denying some other proclivity
For a more accepted identity?
