Homosexuality is a sin, and sins are committed by choice.

If sin is a choice then Christians choose to sin every day. Good trees do not bear bad fruit, bad trees do not bear good fruit. Bad trees are uprooted and thrown into the fire. If sin is a choice and Christians sin every day then they are bad trees because they do not bear good fruit. Remember, good trees DO NOT bear bad fruit, only good fruit.
John tells us those that sin are children of the devil, so if sin is a choice then Christians choose to be children of the devil. If you are a slave to sin then you have no permanent place in the family, so if you choose to sin you never had a place in the family to begin with.
Gay people do not choose to be attracted to the same gender, that's just the way they are by their nature, just as asexuals are non-sexual by their nature, just as heteros are attracted to the opposite gender by their nature. You cannot say asexuals are born that way and homosexuals aren't, that just doesn't make any logical sense. If sexual preference is a choice then we were ALL born asexual until we made the choice to like who we like. That would mean Jesus' statement was false because EVERYONE is born without sexual desire (and that is true to an extent anyways), not just "some".
In his discourse about eunuchs... I believe he was referring to people who will never be with a woman, and thus never procreate...
IF he was just referring to people who chose to be celebate, ask yourself if Paul considered himself a Eunuch
…3And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth. 4These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb. 5And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless.
He that is able to receive it, let him receive it
Now obviously everyone in the world knows that there are people born with deformities... even back then, so why would this saying be so hard to swallow?
It is because he is referring to a people who have been slaughtered for just being what they are... for what they were born as...
THAT is why it is a hard thing to swallow, even to this day

I'm pointing out that the Catholic Church tried the Eunuch route with their priests. It didn't work.
And eunuchs are not homosexuals, never have been. And according to the current version of the homosexual lobby, you cannot be made gay by men. So that shoots a whole in your argument.
Eunuchs are castrates in one way or another.
I even tried to return to Christianity recently, and was met with the same crap that drove me away in the first place... with unfortunate dire consequences to my life and well being
