Gay Or Lesbian Is Not Genetic It Is A Choice
I believe that being gay or lesbian is so not genetic as they put it what about in the old days guys didnt like guys because they never even thought of somthing as unethical and stupid and somewhat repulsive as that they had commen sense and used it.

Sodomites and Sodomettes choose to be perverts.

The Church of Jesus Christ is full of ex-fornicators, ex-idolaters, ex adulterers, ex-homosexuals, ex-sodomites, ex-thieves, ex-liars, ex-drunkards, ex-drug addicts, etc. When writing to the Christians in Corinth, the Apostle Paul used the phrase “and such were some of you” to teach that all sinners, including Sodomites, Sodomettes, and pedophiles could be transformed and redeemed.

1 Corinthians 6:11
11. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

 All of us are sinners to one degree or another. All of us have a daily battle with the temptation to sin. Some people have an irresistible desire to steal things. Psychiatrists call these people “kleptomaniacs” but the Lord still requires that they quit stealing. Some people have an addiction to alcohol or drugs and, in order to quit, sometimes they have to be hospitalized and endure terrible withdrawal symptoms but the Lord still requires that they turn from their sin and say no to their addiction. Just by an act of the will, no one is able to change the color of their skin but every year thousands of Sodomites, Sodomettes, and pedophiles change their behavior and turn from a life of perversion to following Christ. Sodomites, Sodomettes, and pedophiles have to learn to say no to their sin just like everyone else. When you say no to sin, any sin, and keep saying no without giving in to the temptation, you build up spiritual muscle and the temptation to sin becomes less and less.

1 Corinthians 6:9
9. Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators (Greek - pornos - general sexual sin), nor idolaters, nor adulterers (Greek - moichos - sexual intercourse between a married man and someone other than his wife), nor homosexuals (Greek - malakos -effemin@te, a male prostitute, a soft one, a boy or an adult male), nor sodomites (Greek - arsenokoites - abusers who defile themselves with mankind, a male who has sex with an effemin@te male),
10. nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
18. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

Most statistics on the subject indicate that sexual orientation reflects a normal bell-shaped curve. Therefore, environment has a huge effect on whether or not people engage in homosexual activities.

About 10% on either side simply can't switch teams. There have been several cultures where homosexuality is an expected behavior, and those people who did not engage in such were considered abnormal. There are many more cultures where homosexulaity is considered deviant and vile, and in these environments, anyone within the comfort zone of the bell curve would naturally choose heterosexual activities.

Consider the current trend of "faux lesbians," as advertised on "Girls Gone Wilde," as an instance in which girls pretend to be sexually interested in each other to attract guys.

HELLO! The guys are already attracted.

 a) when you say environment has a huge effect you are implying by default that genetics is very relevant as well.
b) The fact that environmental factors almost certainly play a large role has little to do with it being a choice of the individual.
c) Faux lesbians aren't choosing to be lesbians. They are simulating sex not engaging in an activity they are actually sexually interested in.

 So when was it that you made that choice? I'm sure such an important decision would warrant a mark on the calendar. "Weighed out all the pros and cons, and decided to sign up with heterosexuality today".

It is neither.

It occurs in other animals so I disagree with it being a choice and there is no 'gay' gene - How would it be passed to the next generation?

It's who they are, There would have been gay and lebian in the past when men hated one another.

Ignorance is a choice, and you've clearly chosen that.

Homosexuality is a remnant of evolution, from a time when there was only one gender and all creatures were bisexual as some still are, such as plants and simple creatures like worms.

Gay sex has been around since the begining of time. Alexander the great had his way with men. As for your little hissy fit at the end. The fact that thinking about gay people creates such emotion in you means there's insecurity in you mind. If I think about two men getting it on I just think, no thanks.

I am so certain that homosexuality is not a choice. The reason I'm so certain is because it is not a choice for me.

DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Don't people ever tire putting homosexuals down in the form of debates? There are already so many debates on this subject, I don't see why you don't just go and respond and comment on them. Just because this one is worded differently than another, it all boils down to the same thing.

Did you choose to be heterosexual? I know I didn't make a conscious decision that I am heterosexual. I was just attracted to members of the opposite sex. Someone who is attracted to the same sex didn't make a choice either. They are entitled to a loving relationship just as heterosexuals are.

 PS. As far as homosexuality being a "new" thing, I think that finsch, ballsalsa, StBalders and kddan have already pointed out that you are wrong in that regard. When I was younger, I do recall having a gay neighbor and everyone whispered about him when they were out gossiping. He was older than me. I used to go over to his house and he would try to teach me to play guitar and always had a ton of patience for me. I had no clue what the whispers were about, but the poor guy, who I thought of as a friend was forced to live in the closet for the most part. Sad.

If youu were to discover that homosexuality has been commonplace throughout history would you change your mind?

 Hi Balders....I don't think any of the homophobes or gay bashers are going to change their minds regardless of any points made. There are pages of debates that go to show that their mind, in this regard, is etched in stone. :)

As finsch said your logic is, "it grosses me out therefore it is a choice." Very bad reasoning my friend, it isn't worthy of being called logic, I suggest you look through the whole of human history and your see homosexuality has existed as long as heterosexuality has, look at the Roman empire, the greatest army the world has ever known. Homosexual relations were actually encouraged.
And if it is a choice when did you choose to be sexually attracted to the opposite sex?

 Most people have very bad reasoning for being homophobic, kddan. Still, until we reach a generation where, for the most part, most people try to understand and demonstrate tolerance, we will continue to see debates like this and hear people making cruel remarks about homosexuals.

It has not always been the case that homosexuality was looked down upon, and certainly not marginalized in all cultures. Seems to be a relatively recent Christian phenomenon. It has been studied extensively recently, and there are definite physical markers that correlate to homosexual tendencies. For one, the amygdala of the human brain is twice as large in homosexual men as it is in heterosexuals. This is the portion of the brain that drives basic instincts. So, saying that people choose to be homosexual is also suggesting that they are choosing to have different physical traits in their brains. Not a good argument.

 You are obviously aware that the vast majority of scientists dismissed the idea of "either/or" in the nature vs. nurture debate years ago. Kudos to you.

Actually homosexual behavior is well documented throughout most of recorded history. Additionally nearly all higher order social mammals exhibit varying degrees of homosexual activity. If you examine the history of our research in to the roots of human behavior you nearly always find that it is partially genetic and partially environmental. Either way it is not a choice.

This all aside from the fact that your statement and logic basically boils down to "I think it's icky therefore it must be a choice." While you will find some people here that agree with you, know that your statement is a failure in reason.

 Interestingly homosexuality has been extensively observed in swans too. Swan Uppers working on the Thames reported an upsurge in the number of male swan couples in the 90s after the swan population peaked. And the response to them among swans was just as it is with humans - some swans hissed at them and some swans welcomed and tolerated them. (There was a chap talking about it on Radio 4)
