Yes, homosexuality is a choice. They have never found a "gay gene" in the same way they know what makes people have different skin colors.
Allergies are not genetic, but not a choice. Much of your personality is not genetic and is not something under your control. And they have "never" found a "cake gene" that makes people love cake, yet that is also not a choice.
So there are plenty of other possible causes that are not genetic, but are also not choices.
What we know is that people have preferences which they cannot change. How
they got them is besides the point. The only thing they seem to have a choice about is whether to indulge in their preferences. But sexuality is not like eating cake. It is a much bigger part of our humanity. Telling someone to eschew their sexuality is like telling them to eschew breathing.
So when people say "being gay is like being white" it is dishonest.
I think it could be argued that by only looking at genetics as a cause you are being dishonest. Or did you honestly overlook other possibilities? I doubt it. You need homosexuality to be a choice. Because if it is not, then your religious beliefs are unfair and unjust.
You could prove me wrong by saying something like, "oh wow, I didn't even think about that. I guess teh gey might not be a choice afterall." But if I were a betting man...
There is nothing found in the human body that causes gayness.Something
causes it. And since we are biological things, it is reasonable to think that the cause is found somewhere in the body
, whether it is the DNA or something else. Where else would the cause be found? Our souls? If so, then it's god's problem.
Some people (such as myself) just choose not to do it because it is a sin.
You are saying you are attracted to other men, yes? And that the only thing holding you back from having sex (and an amorous relationship) with another man is your religious belief, yes? Pardon me for saying so, but I do not buy it.
I do not have gay relationships because I am not attracted to men. I could choose to have sex with a man, but I would not want to. And if I tried, I believe it would not be a happy or fulfilling experience for me. Consideration for sin plays no part in it.
So when I hear people like you say things like that, I can only come to two conclusions. You are either talking out of your ass or you are a self-loathing closet homosexual. If it is the former, you should stop doing that. You know, "thou shalt not bear false witness" and all. If it is the latter, I truly feel bad for you. I hope you can break free from your oppressive religious beliefs and finally experience the love you want.
Just as some people choose to rob or murder, some choose to be sexually immoral.
Now here is where people will shout "You're a bigot!" but this is simply wrong.
No. It's not wrong. You hold bigoted views. You say bigoted things. However you attemot justify them, it does not change the fact that you are still a bigot.
It's a sin to have hetero sex outside of marriage and it is a sin to have homosexual sex.
They are categorically different.
