PEDOPHILES, its just sexual. They are predators who only care about their sexual needs. They are completely different to gay, or straight people who are in normal relationshios because there is love, its not just sex.
Love is a choice.
You're off to a bad start. Both science and theology disagree with this statement.
"Love" is scientifically an involuntary chemical reaction of oxytocin and dopamine.
Biblically, "love" is given to man by God.
Neither of these are a choice, sorry.

Sexual sin is only offensive to God
because it hurts people.
What? If you're talking about rape, then yes. (In terms of it being offensive, however - I'd say it is offensive to PEOPLE, where "God" appears to be largely absent and/or oblivious as to the subject. Only PEOPLE are hacking each other to death and all that fun stuff. I look around, and no where do I see "God" here to care either way, or to fix anything. I see a few people - including the Pope, and the Dalai Lama...but that's it.)
I don't know your definition of "sexual sin." Rape, pedophilia, and assault....yes, those are offensive to everyone - because they hurt people.
Could you explain your stance on what you consider to be 'sexual sin'?

If being gay is a choice as some would have us believe, then does that mean at some point in their life they were attracted to both sexes but chose to like the opposite?
Is that not the premise of choosing to be gay or straight..attraction to both sexes but choosing the preference of the opposite while fighting their attraction to the same.
I don't know about other people but I have always liked women..never once was I attracted to another man...never once did I have to make a choice between men or women.
I can honestly say I was born that way..
So why is it any different for gay people?

If gay was natural, natural selection would've weeded it out a while ago because it is direct threat to survival of the fittest. No one can argue that no matter how blue their face turns.
