Sarkozy stirs the GBLT debate.

He suggested that paedophilia might be due to a genetic pre-disposition. This is adapting the rhetoric of the GBLT groups who argue that what they do is right. Furthermore, to become a normal, monogamous heterosexual is simply impossible, because they are physically wired to be who they are. Of course, any group can use this kind of rhetoric, including psychopaths.

Frankly, I don't doubt it. In my mind, pretty much every inclination or peccadillo is a result of some biological phenomenon. However, that does not mean one should not overcome or transcend one's compulsions. I believe that is what God expects from us, to be Holy because He is Holy, inspite of our natural urges. For the homo/lez community, they believe their choice is not sinful because of the consensual aspect of their desire. But a sin does not require malevolence or violence or even any suffering at all to be a sin. It requires only that God has called it a sin.

I agree with you completely! One can also claim genetic predisposition for heterosexuality, or Christian fundamentalism, or trail running, or engineering, or (gasp!) living in California. Just how far can people take this preposterous "predisposition" argument?
