Many people - often who have concerns with homosexuality - comment that "it's a choice". So, if people are so sure - I'd like to know how they are so sure: is this a choice you have personally made? To be straight? Because in order for homosexuality to be a choice, heterosexuality must also be a choice. I mean this in the most polite way - I'm curious, please enlighten me. I'll save my thoughts for later. PLEASE NOTE: I will not put up with people coming here just to insult people by name-calling, from either side. Understood? Polite, thoughtful conversation only...

Thank you for your insightful answer.
Thank you for your answer.
Granted, that is what you believe - but did YOU personally CHOOSE your sexual preference? Did you think "right, I will be straight, because it is good for God?". Do you recall this decision? Was your sexuality a choice - is what I am asking
I may have erred when I said that it is a choice. Here's what the church says about homosexuality:
Note this: "as a state beyond a person’s choice"
And I had leanings toward my own sex but I chose to be straight.
Thanks for clarifying. Each to their own - as long as you are happy. I question choice because religion says so but if people are happy that's all that matters to me - I didn't choose but I wouldn't change it if I could - I hope you feel the same 4 u
Thanks for your answer. A question - are you saying that whilst the preference is not a choice, whether to act on it is? Do we take this to mean that if pref is SS then the choice people say is 'wrong' is acting on it? What do you make of this?
It is more "wrong" to live in a lie to yourself and to others than to be truthfully who you naturally are. Like living with a wolf in sheeps clothing - someday you will see the "sheep" naked, and at that moment the wolf will instinctually attack.
I think that is what is *meant* by homosexuality being wrong (acting on it) rather than the actual preference itself being wrong, but if you ask a number of people you're likely to get a number of different answers to the question.
Thank you for your answer, Windy!
