A great many things not good are natural. . .
It is a fallacy to jump from gay penguins to the normalization of homosexuality. There are a great many things that are natural but not good. Violence, jealousy, and vengeance are all natural to the human heart and we all know the grave scourge such natural things have foisted upon our lives. In fact, we confess every Sunday that we are by nature sinful and unclean. Sin is natural not in the sense that God created us this way but sin has corrupted our nature. Jesus is blunt in saying what terrible things flow out of the sinful human heart and the overwhelming longing of the sinner under the guidance of the Spirit is to long for a new heart, a clean heart, and a right spirit to contradict and overcome the sinful nature.
In the end the curious thing is that such can never be the norm for penguins or penguins will no longer be a species. The only way penguins can reproduce is the male/female relationship. While some humans have forgotten this, it might be good to remember this. Technology has given us many opportunities but even in the lab the matrix of life is male and female. Just a few crazy thoughts after reading of how happy Billy and Bob penguins are living together as if they were an opposite sex couple -- maybe even happier than if they were one!
