The West held that freedom, liberty, is the opportunity for a being to express its essential nature, not to do things that corrupt or contradict it. Homosexual behavior being an obvious denial of what is true about the essence of human sexual nature, the “freedom” to act out homosexual desires is akin to the freedom of a dog to fly like a bird. The dog can jump off a balcony, but his passage through the air could never be called “flight.” To the Western Mind, then, there is no “freedom” in acting to betray one’s essential being. This is, in fact, slavery, because once your will has taken you outside your nature as a human being, you cannot exercise true freedom. You can’t be true to your nature, because you have chosen to do the opposite. And the longer you practice such betrayals, the more likely you are to become addicted to them, deepening your enslavement; the more you think you are practicing “freedom,” the less truly free you are getting.
