Quoting the Bible (2) by Debbie Toson (Times of Malta, July 10, 2007)

I would disagree with Joseph Aquilina's statement that sexuality is not a choice.
I didn't choose to be heterosexual because the Bible or my peers say I should be - that's just the way I was born - likewise for someone who is gay.

Mr Aquilina quotes "And God does not make mistakes". As we are all aware, the version of the Bible we read today is only the interpretation of a translator who would have been more than capable of making mistakes. Would he not agree that following the Bible word for word is not necessarily a good thing - as proven by various extremists who cause harm to innocent people today?
