Hey, there is scientific evidence that homosexuality is genetic.

However, if you look at what the Bible says, and not what MTV or your college professor says, you will come to a very different conclusion.

Please show us, but that's for argument sakes.

The bible still teaches it's wrong.

No it does not. It means men who abuse mankind.

There is no unbiased scientific evidence. Something published by the Advocate doesn't count. Even if it was genetic, all it would mean is its a birth defect, not the beautiful thing modern American culture says it is. Wouldn't make it right before God. He would expect you to refrain from sex with men, as the husband is supposed to refrain from sex with women besides his wife, or we all are to abstain from sex before marriage.

Didn't Jesus say something about science being good. More scientific evidence points to genetics regarding homosexual orientation.

lol It wasn't published by the advocate.

It is a birth defect. Most evidence points to that. For example people with some childhood disorders don't develop the disorder until about age 3. They are born totally normal but at around age 3 or 4 they become effected by a life long mental disorder. Homosexuality is probably very similar. It is a birth defect and it effects the sexual orientation of a person.
