If the story at this link is true - http://now.msn.com/man-says-pills-to-stop-hair-loss-made-him-a-woman - it creates an interesting point on the whole homosexual, transgender question and even if it's not true it is probably time to look at the alternative life styles in the light of hormonal imbalance, which I for one am completely unqualified to do.

When I was young Bill Cosby was doing his famous Noah routine where God tells him to build an Ark and he says "what's an ark?"  Well I can imagine God trying to explain to Moses hormones and/or an Hormonal imbalance.  Probably great material for Ellen to use.  Sometimes we have to reach a point where we admit we can't figure out everything.  While some people are going to feel comfortable with same sex marraige others like myself might never be.  However, since we can all love one another it should be obvious that a hormonal imbalance or even the possibility of a hormonal imbalance is not a reason to shun a whole group of people.  In the worse days of my problems with my children God always told me to go out of my way to keep communication open.  If the members of a local meeting feel comfortable with same sex marriage that's their group discernment.  If another doesn't that's theirs.  Let's not offend one another and let us understand we don't understand everything and Moses and Paul didn't understand hormonal imbalance and Jesus didn't think it was worth explaining.
