    Heaven only knows, there is a plentiful supply of the stuff. At least in my back yard there is.
    Ever heard of fecalphelia? It's actually not unheard of for someone to "choose" to like feces.

    The genitalia of your own gender would strike me as being rather tame by way of comparison.

    Re: Is Homosexuality A Choice?

    I have to question the notion that homosexuality is a choice. I mean, there are places where that can get you killed, yet homosexuals are still found there. Why would they choose to be gay in that situation where the threat of death exists?
    I thought I was an atheist until I realized I'm a god.

    No one can know the answer to this - they can only guess.

    My guess is that the majority are 'gay' at birth.

    But a small/medium minority choose.

    Actually that is not what Jesus said.

    Human beings are fundamentally irrational creatures. By the logic you have put forward, why would anyone in their right mind choose to be Goth, Emo, or Furry given the stigma those lifestyles attract? Why would anyone in ancient Rome have chosen to be Christian, or anyone living under Franco or Pinochet's regimes have chosen to be Left Wing?

    Granted, such willful contrarianism can have a tendency to be rather rare, but homosexuality tends to be rather rare (2-4% of any given population) anyway.

    It's hardly unthinkable that at least some of the individuals making up their number might "choose" to embrace a homosexual lifestyle purely as a matter of personal preference in spite of the drawbacks.

    Actually no, you are still wrong:

    "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion" (Romans 1:26-27).
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
