Almost everything I find tells me that any scientific study of sexual orientation will say that our S.O. is something that we are born with. Whenever someone claiming to have a scientific basis that says that it is a choice, they almost always have a fear based ideological or theological belief system just below the surface. If it's a choice, that's because our S.O. choses us
, we don't chose it
Saying that we are born a certain way, is saying that God made us that way. God would not make us defective, just so that He (or She) would find us to be an abomination.
"Nobody in science now believes that sexual orientation is caused by events in adolescence...Homosexuality is an early, probably prenatal and irreversible preference." Author and geneticist Matt Ridley
We have described a number of studies which show that the propensity towards homosexuality is traceable either to:
* Genetic causes at conception, or
* Environmental causes in the womb before birth
I can find many reputable sources like that one. Here are a couple of sources, but hey, you can Google as well as I can. I used
scientific study cause OR origin "of sexual orientation" The Advanced search helps.
