It is wrong and dangerously misleading to say that people are born homosexual and cannot change.
Well John, I am only going by what homosexual adults have told me in person - that they figured they felt they were born gay, and when entering puberity knew immediately they were not like other kids. I have over the years through my work dealt with many who as you say, tried to "change" unsuccessfully, but that is only my experience. Like all things in life really though, it is about choice isn't it? Their life style is their choice, and who am I to say it is right or wrong, it just is.
I should have explained myself better I suppose, and said I approach difference from the live and let live perspective.
I could care less about scientific facts to be honest, I much prefer to talk to a real person and know what that person "feels" to be their own truth, and try to understand it and learn to respect it.
