    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.
    They would choose so for a number of reasons from influences to emotions to popularity to experimentation to whatever else. To someone who supports homosexuality, they may believe that it does have perks.

    You have no evidence that it isn't a choice. I have had friends that were gay that changed their minds and realised that they were living in sin.

    Te Bible states that it is a sin and I have already explained why God would not have created homosexuals if within His own Word they were living in sin. What options are left beside understanding that it is a choice own makes based on past influences, etc.

    If it is a choice, why did they happen to be gay in the first place? Why not just choose to be not gay to begin with?
    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.

    The Bible stated that homosexual ACTS are a sin just like it states that lust is a sin. Yet, God created an entire species where for them lust is completely unavoidable? Why would he create a species that lust when lust is a sin. We could go round and round.

    The Bible doesn't say homosexuality is a sin, therefore there is no reason for God to have not created homosexuals.

    They did not "happen" to be gay. They made a decision. According to God, said lifestyle is sinful. Ergo, I believe it. Faith cannot be explained by logic; logic alone cannot understand God.

    Lust is a sin as well. If one commits homosexual acts, I believe they are homosexual. The acts and the state of doing said acts, to me, is a sin. The Bible does say homosexuality is a sin. It also states men being effeminate is a sin. It states waste, greed, vanity, fornication, and pride are sins. Maybe our current world has becme adjusted to living in sin and acceling at it?

    Where does it say that homosexuality is a sin? (Also, straight people commit homosexual acts as well).

    When did God designate you as his official spokesperson? Do you mean to say that the omnipotent master of the entire world reqiures you to speak for him on this subject?

    I don't believe that homosexual orientation is a choice. But acting upon homosexual urges is definitely a choice. The sin is homosexual sex, not homosexual orientation.
