Whichever way a person is born, whatever predispositions they have, whether they act on them or not, whether they engage in homosexual activity or not, IS a matter of choice.
I dare you to never, ever act on your heterosexual urges if it's just a matter of choice. Maybe if people just tried this for even a year or two, they would rethink their stance on homosexuality being a choice.
So you're saying there is no choice, that we are total unconscious slaves to our passions and lusts. Well to the extent that we remove God from our lives, or try to be God without God, that's probably true.
As for you "dare"...I would probably fail miserably. But, at least I act on my heterosexual urges within the context of marriage blessed by the Church. Now...there are those who are able, with God's grace
, to be celibate for many, many years. Doesn't mean they do not have the urges, and it doesn't mean that it is necessarily easy. It just means that, with God
, they can succeed in their choice
not to act on them. You see, according to the teachings of the Church, heterosexual activity within the context of marriage is not just permitted, but blessed, especially (but not only) if the purpose of it is procreation. Homosexual activity
, however, is not. Have you read Romans, Ch. 1 lately? Or John 15:1-7? Or any of a number of other biblical passages?
