    Hello everyone. I am willing to know your opinions about this delicate subject. In my opinion, and in the christian opinion, of course, homosexuals are not born that way, because that would mean God created them that way, but it didn't happen, homosexuality is just something pshycological, a deviation, in my opinion. But I am wondering what science thinks about it and what you think about it.

    God bless you!

    Combination of nature and nurture.

    Sexuality is fluid. Its neither fixed at birth nor static through life. Look up the Kinsey scale.

    I wonder what your opinion is of the occurrence of homosexual behavior and homosexual lifetime partner bonding in the animal kingdom.

    "The relationship between biology and sexual orientation is a subject of research. A simple and singular determinant for sexual orientation has not been conclusively demonstrated; various studies point to different, even conflicting positions, but scientists hypothesize that a combination of genetic, hormonal, and social factors determine sexual orientation"

    There probably isn't one answer, but rather differing circumstances cause differing results. IOW, in some cases the factors that formed the fetus may dominate. In other cases the environment may dominate. In yet other cases ...

    More interesting to me are the reasons people ask this question. Are they trying to justify sexuality or find the means to correct problems? Personally, I don't see how any scientific discovery is going to justify sexuality.

    I expect it to have natural explanations out of the individual's control. That's, in any case, what the evidence seems to point to.
    Genetic, hormonal, ... or a combination.

    Christians don't like to hear that homosexuals are "born that way" because the take-away is that god purposefully made them that way and since god doesn't make mistakes, homosexuality must be "ok."

    Nevermind homosexuals being "born that way" - a bigger question is: If god doesn't make mistakes, then why are some people born intersex? There are many people born who have physical and mental abnormalities, so is god to blame for those as well?
