    I'm looking for how you substantiate this abnormal trait, that is all.

    Is sexuality not a trait? It's just a trait like intelligence, creativity, temperament, etc.

    Homosexuality is an identity, not an act, Wake. Do you believe the state of homosexuality to be a sin? Or do you believe the ACT to be a sin?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I believe it is not an identity. Based on my religious beliefs, I do not think God would make people born under said identity while also having multiple scriptures that state it is a sin. I believe it is a lifestyle one willfully chooses and I believe it and the act to be sin. However, I view it as less important sin that is still one none-the-less.

    What evidence do you have that it is a choice?

    We don't know for sure. However, I have faith in my Christian religion.

    Why would any person "choose" to be gay? It doesn't exactly come with a lot of perks.

    What evidence do I have that it isn't a choice? I have many friends that are gay. Some of them, due to their own religious beliefs or that of their families and relatives, have tried like hell to change, so as to be accepted. It is not something that can be wilfully done.

    Where does the Bible say that it is a choice?
