    They choose that way of life, bible reads homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of heaven, If they were born that way the bible would not say that,, they want to blame some one else besides themselves for their life style.

    Religious perspective says they are given over to wickedness.

    21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29Being filled with all unrighteousness, (...)

      Those verses describe a punishment from your deity for idolatry, not actual homosexuality.

    Are people born straight or do they become straight? No one becomes either, they just are. It's sort of like asking is a person born left handed or did they become left handed. They just are.

    A person is born Gay (Lesbian) Bisexual or Straight.

    You have no say in what your sexuality is.

    Now bisexuals do have a say in what they will seek today. Some may decide to only seek same sex while others may only seek opposite sex and some go after both sexes.

    If a person makes the choice to only seek out one sex, that is a choice they make.

    I suspect its this choice to only seek out same sex partners that confuses some into thinkg a person chooses to be gay. They would arrive at this as to them the person was into the opposite sex but now is into the same sex.

    They're generally born with the inevitable potential to develop into homosexuals when their sexual awakening occurs.

    Allegedly there is a gene that increases the chance men become gay. It has a high chance of making men and women very sexually attractive but it has different side effects for each gender. For women, it makes them also more promiscuous. For men, it has a higher chance of making them homosexual. It doesn't necessarily make you gay but there is a higher chance of turning out to be one.

    I have also seen documentaries where gay men have described their experiences before they realized they were gay. 

    Some examples of some of the people in the documentary.

    -The majority of gays were sexually molested as children. 

    - Boys that were born in single-mother households, and without some kind of father figure, male friends. 

    - Boys that were raised with a mother that emasculated and belittled the father in front of the children.

    - Boys that were neglected as children and developed unhealthy complexions about their looks. Some became obsessed with comparing themselves with more attractive men and also wanted to do surgeries to enhance their bodies.

    Dr. Edward Dutton has made some interesting theories on his youtube channel regarding how gays have come to be. One of the ideas he spoke of was that nature has a way of keeping male aggression lower. When there are too many males and not enough females, males tend to be more aggressive and more violent when competing for females. So nature has made some men gay erase some of that aggression. Gays in a sense, are to lower the aggression when it comes to male partner competition. 

    It's hard to say if people are born this way, but a lot of it seems to lead to neglectful parents, trauma, and specific environments.

      Anon, I wouldn't trust scientific statements made by someone who doesn't have even a bachelor's degree in a science field and has committed plagiarism.

    I don't know, but I know a guy who was married, had 3 kids and came out as gay after. So how in hell would a gay man manage all that?
