things will only ever happen one way. if you played the same scenario out a million times, with every variable kept exactly the same each time, all of them will be identical. so choice is an illusion and that goes for everything and everyone. we make decisions based on past influences, events, and actions - and since these will never be any different, our present choices are inevitable.

well if you played the EXACT same scenario of flipping the coin over and over again, it would always flip in the same way, and land on the same side.

I don't understand why homosexuality CAN'T be a choice. A lot of lesbians go gay because men don't cut it or something traumatizing has happened to them involving men. They can choose to trust men again and keep being straight or they can choose to drop the D completely and go gay. I suppose it's the same for gay men as well. Sometimes people are just horny son of bitches that'll **** anyone and all it ever is about is sex, not necessarily "preference" whether or not the sex their having at the time is homo or hetero. I don't think homosexuality is something that's genetic or passed on through family but I do believe it can be developed in your chemistry or mind set when you're a kid. Anyway, Christians who are well educated in their religion don't actually care about what you do in bed or who you do it with. They aren't all bigots...

Its awful when a 21 year old guy can get his life ruined by a lying 17 year old.

I always thought the bible had value, even if parts were wrong.

like, if your physics teacher beats his wife at night, does that make him a bad teacher? same thing with the bible. even if some parts are obviously wrong, that doesn't necessarily discredit the whole thing.

a god who cares about petty things like the sexual orientation of humans isn't a god I'd like to worship

The whole premise of 'choice or genetic' is stupid. We don't know whether it is a genetic trait, or situational from upbringing or some sort of unconscious 'choice.' If a 'gay gene' were found then that would end the debate but it hasn't so it's incorrect to make the assertion that it is (Thats not how the scientific process works folks.)

With that said, why the **** does it matter HOW it comes about? Homosexuality really should be a non-issue because the only people that have problems with it are bigotted idiots basing their thoughts on fear or archaic ********. By even trying to combat the 'It's a choice and therefore somehow bad!' brigade by saying - without the proper evidence - that it's genetic, you simply fuel the bigot fire. What you should say instead is 'So ******* what?'

It's not cemented, but completely scoffing off the idea of a "gay gene" (Which in and of itself is a gross over simplification of the subject) is just stupid.

Way to completely miss his point. He was pointing out that it's redundant to even acknowledge someones negative oppinion and give them a debate because it's an inherantly flawed perspective to begin with. There's also no 'scoffing' at the idea, but a simple statement that it hasn't yet been discovered or proven to a scientific standard and therefore should not be presented as such. That is what separates science from bigotry.

I'm not denying his other points (I in fact agree with them), I'm just saying that he should treat the idea of a "gay gene" with a little more validity.

I don't think I woke up one day and went 'huh, I think I want to be hated, and not be able to walk down the street with out getting attacked, verbally and/or physically'. It isn't a choice, I wouldn't choose it if I had the choice, but I embrace it.

Now don't get me wrong, there are different types of gay people. I consider myself to be one of the better ones. I try to respect the fact that people don't agree with it, and don't shove it in their face, but if they give me **** I will fight back. The word faggot doesn't mean **** to me, I use it more than most people.

tl;dr
Not a choice, i don't give a **** what you think, the word faggot rolls off the tongue well.

For a majority it isn't a choice. But for a few they make it one, because they are attention whoring little divas.

I don't know if this guy is quoting a particular person or group of people, but I am Christian and I just want to say that I don't believe either of the things he is quoting. Rape is one of the farthest things from God's will, next to murder and other such acts. As for homosexuality, I honestly don't know all the particulars about why it happens, but I imagine there are a range of physical/emotional/mental reactions involved as part of the cause. One important thing to understand is that same gender attraction in itself is not a sin. The "choice" involved in homosexuality comes in choosing to act on that attraction or not. People with same gender attraction can still be good Christians and go to heaven and everything if they choose to obey God's commandments.
