    58. 59. 1) Do you believe in god? (surprised) (thinking) Yes, of course I do. 2) Can you please define your god? Omniscient, omnipotent…. 3) So, he is the one who is charge, not you… Of course! Most definitely. 4) Based on this definition, could you act, in any way, against your god’s will? No. No. He is the one in charge. None can act against his will.
    59. 60. 5) So, whenever you do anything, it is his will - not yours? (silence) (thinking) (mumbles) People murder… it is not …god’s will…. 6) …which means, some people can act against god’s will?... No, no, that is not possible. 7) …w e should worship those more powerful murderers instead, don’t we? No. This is confusing.
    60. 61. 8) Mr. Morgan, once you define god you should stick with it. Or do you want to change your definition of god. Lets make it ‘half omniscient, semi omnipotent, almost in partial control… No, fine. So, are you saying it is all god’s will? 9) What do you think? Oh, god! It looks like it. It has to be. 1 0) Now, a new topic. What is the process of performing an action? Based on what you know, you act according to the context.
    61. 62. 1 1) Given a specific situation and limited personal knowledge, could you have done anything differently at any given time? (silence) (thinking) No. 12) Hence, as an exploring homosexual, could you have done anything differently? No (relief). No. Of course, no. 13) So are you saying homosexuals are god’s creation? I have to. It seems to be like that. 14) So, you haven’t committed any sin? No. 15) And, homosexuality you have practiced is god’s will, and nothing wrong with that… (thinking)…that should be right. (relief).
