as Sodom and Gomorrah,
and the cities around them
in a similar manner to these,
having given themselves
over to sexual immorality
and gone after strange flesh,
Now Enoch the seventh from Adam,
prophesied about these men also,
"Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousand of His Saints,
"to execute judgment on all,
to convict all who are ungodly among them
of all their ungodly deeds
which they have committed
in an ungodly way,
and of all harsh things
which ungodly sinners
have spoken against Him.
These are grumblers,
Complainers, walking according
to their own lusts; etc etc.
The Book of E’Noch I-XXXVI
the children of the heavens, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another:
“Come, let us chose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.”
And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them:
“I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed,
and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.”
And they all answered him and said:
“Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations
not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.”
Then swear they all together and bound themselves together by mutual imprecations upon it.
And they were in all two hundred;
who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon,
because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it.
And these are the names of their leaders:
Semiazaz, their leader, Arakiba, Rameel, Kokabiel, Tamiel, Ramiel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqiel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomael, Sariel.
These are their chiefs of tens.
And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives,
and each chose for himself one,
and they began to go in unto them and defile themselves with them,
and they taught them charms and enchantment’s,
and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants.
And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants,
whose height was Three Thousand Ells:
Who consumed all the acquisitions of men.
And when men could no longer sustain them,
The giants turned against them and devoured mankind.
And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish,
and to devour one an others flesh, and drink the blood.

homosexuality occurs naturally within the animal kingdom, do you think those animals choose to be gay? Thats all I have to say on the matter for now
A study published in the February issue of the journal Endocrinology demonstrates that not only are certain groups of cells different between genders in a part of the sheep brain controlling sexual behavior, but brain anatomy and hormone production may determine whether adult rams prefer other rams over ewes. 'This particular study, along with others, strongly suggests that sexual preference is biologically determined in animals, and possibly in humans,' said the study's lead author, Charles E. Roselli, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, OHSU School of Medicine.
In psychology it is WELL KNOWN than people do NOT choose to be gay, but they ARE.
With homosexuality - you have a choice. You can go with it, or you can reject it.

there are many people out there who are sexually confused... We struggle each day trying to identify ourselves with who we really are... This is a problem we all face, not just heterosexuals, but also homosexuals, or bisexuals.
Think of a non-sexual trait in humans by way of comparison. Say, obesity. Is obesity a choice? Granted, no one would choose obesity. Yet on the other hand, people are obese as the end result of a whole slew of choices they make, regardless of whether the individual accepts any personal responsibility for their habits.
God's opinion matters more to me than any person that would try to tell me and convince me that homosexuality is not a choice... the Qur'an and the old scriptures teach me to warn people that if they commit in homosexual behavior, then they will be dealt by God when their day comes.
Can I make the decision to pick up a knife and stab a the neighbourhood cat that's always screaming? No because i'm not like that. It doesn't mean I have a gene inside of me that doens't like to murder innocent cats
