Great question. The answer; a resounding absolutely not. We are born to be who we are in spite of those religious zealots who preach otherwise. No one in their right minds would choose a life "style" that is so hated, and abused, by society.
Anyone who suggests that 'reparative' therapy works needs to get an education and a grip on reality instead of living in their limited little worlds.
To suggest such foolishness is like saying that anyone born with any kind of birth anomaly could simply 'pray' or 'wish' it away and it would happen.
Note that i used the phrase "birth anomaly" not "birth defect" because being born gay is not a "defect", it is nature's way of averting the inevitable over population of this planet. Of course the religious prefer wars and killing as the best way for population control. Or perhaps not having physical relations at all.
We are all creations of God, with innate emotions and physical pleasures and those emotions (love) and pleasures (sex) are gifts from God to be shared with other consenting adults.
There is no shame in being born different - the shame is in the judging of others by those who think they are what God's plan is all about.
