I think best available evidence suggests that homosexuality has a genetic
basis. It is interesting that gay activist groups have been suppressing
research in this area because of the fear that proof of a genetic cause
could someday lead to a "cure". The point I wanted to make is that if
homosexuality is indeed biological in nature then ethics has nothing to
say about it because there is no choice involved; it makes as much sense
as condemning people for being born female or having imperialistic ancestors.
