I think by default we're all bisexual. All bonobos are bisexual and they're just as closely related to us than chimps are. Actually I remember
reading that bonobos even prefer gay sex over "normal" sex.
My (educated) guess is that no single "gay gene" will ever be found. Such a thing would have eliminated itself from the gene pool a long time ago.
However very soon we'll find a combination of genes that correlates with a likelihood of being gay (the same way we've found genes that correlate
with higher risk of addiction to various things). There'd still be a choice (if one believes in free will, personally I'm not sure), but it might
not be an easy one. People in many cultures (for example Iran) take massive risks when they go about doing the gay thing..
By the way did Jesus ever say that gay sex is wrong? I doubt it. Didn't he have a thing with John? He "loved" him like he loved no other disciple..
or something like that. Didn't John even give Jesus a bj during the last supper (the "beloved" disciple laid himself on Jesus' inner tunic)? Some
argue that this was just a normal custom around the time, but seriously shoving your face against some dude's balls is GAY, no way around it. Does
Jesus ever mention homosexuality in the Bible? As far as I know he doesn't. Didn't he eliminate all the old laws? If he then didn't forbid
homosexuality, then why do so many Christians have problems with it? Not that it matters. I doubt very much that Jesus is even a historical person,
but let's not get into that. Did Jesus ever condemn the actions of others? FFS he even made friends with murderer rapists. If you adore the guy so
much then how about trying to act a little bit more like him..
