After certain misconducts in various industries sometimes the wrongdoer is ban for life from working in that industry for their multiple misconducts. Also we find for rapist, pedophiles, etc. there is the Megan’s Law registry, ensuring that sex offenders can be known to the community after they have served their time.
There are ongoing discussions surrounding homosexual’s sexual orientation and desire for the same sex. It has been argued that if a homosexual is still oriented towards the same sex after they have joined a church then the best option is for the homosexual to abstain from sexual activity, this can give the idea that a homosexual orientation cannot change or if not changed then abstinence is the best way forward.
Questions: Can a person orientation to a particular sin be changed? Is abstinence the only option? In relation to sex, if the person’s sex drive did not stop, should reorientation towards the opposite sex be considered? Are activities like Megan’s Law registry and banning a person for life from an industry a statement from society about their disbelief in reorientation (once a thief, always a thief)?
