Because those born as homosexuals are not sinning. And those who are born straight know that trying gay sex is a sin for them.
The problem on the side of Christianity et al is that people are relying on a book written by fellow man thousands of years ago for advice on something they know absolutely nothing about. The only part of the bible that can be guaranteed to be written by God himself is whatever is on those tablets he gave to Moses. We don't even know for sure what is on them, because they went missing along with the ark.

I agree somewhat with your understanding and I also agree that most Christians will not read and are not taught properly. I don't believe that God wrote any part of the Hebrew or Greek bibles but I do believe that He has witnessed to the many authors of the bibles. The religion of a Christian is completely theological and Christianity was not founded on the NT as you and I have it today. Christianity did not regard the letters of the Apostles nor the letters of Paul in their liturgy at all. Their liturgy was totally Hebrew and Aramaic. They had Torah in Hebrew even though the Septuagint was the most used for the Greek speaking Jews. Greek was never permitted in the forming of the Jerusalem Christian Synagogue under James the Just (Brother of Jesus). They also had other books such as Enoch as well as oral Torah.

God is Love
But Love can be expressed through sex, by both straight couples and gay couples and if it is in The Holy Spirit of Love then it is not a sin.
For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. - Luke 6:32
But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. - Luke 6:35

Two people of the same sex cannot procreate. Therefore, the perfect attraction and perfect relationship must be male/female.
Only if your idea of perfection is based on reproduction rather than Compassion which is God's true Law.
By the way, if everyone were a man, the world would not be able to reproduce. If everyone where an old person, the world would not be able to reproduce. It doesn't mean being a man or old person makes a person imperfection, so neither does being homosexual make someone imperfect.
That is flawed logic.
The sex act exists for one reason - reproduction. Our bodies would not have it otherwise. If you want to go down the path of evolution, it is a biologically expensive means of procreating. If we stopped needing it to procreate, the theory dictates that our species would lose the means to have sex as the systems involved make us less efficient organisms and less adapted for survival.
The drive to always and only ever want to have sex in such a way as to never procreate is indeed a flaw or imperfection as it guarantees your genes will not be passed on. Having gender is not the same except inasmuch as it's a side effect of being a sexually reproducing species. A man will pass on his genes given the opportunity to do so, and an old man will have done so given the opportunity at some point in their lifetimes. A gay man will take the opportunity to pass on his genes, but his flaw ensures his partner will never be the kind who can create new life with them.
Oh, Yeah, I am sure you are ready to wow the planet with your understanding of "Love".
The book of Revelation is a contradiction to Christ's teachings in the Gospels.
No, I am saying that you do not understand anything about canines which would fall under the nature category. The fact that you think that it is a science is very revealing about your thought process and intellectual prowess in these matters.
