There is a misconception that all gay people are in it for play. Although I am not gay but married to a woman for 39 years I cannot fathom that gay or straight is dependent upon sexual pleasures. Both persuasions are different than Black people wanting to be white because that is a choice. Some choices are to mimick other people or business positions to bring about economic or social advantages although even a foolish mind knows better.

Let's look at being gay from a biblical point of view. There are Old Testament scriptures against homosexuality but there are none that killed homosexuals for their acts. Ezekiel 16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. If you are a true New Testament theologian the term (grace) dismisses any punishments established by the Old Testament even if it involves homosexuality or adultery. Are women still stoned for adultery. Are women ordered to drink a concoction called an ordeal to prove they were innocent.

A choice is to see your father's nakedness.

9:24 When Noah awoke from his drunken stupor he learned what his youngest son had done to him. 9:25 So he said, “Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves he will be to his brothers.” Most thinks this event involves homosexuality but it involves having sex with his grandmother. A father's nakedness is not about the father's body. Lev18: 8 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's wife; it is your father's nakedness. To hate gays is a choice but to be gay isn't. Prison gay can be both so it is irresponsible to use prison gay as an indicator that all gays can change.
