SBpfu - Greetings dear brother! Ah, now your statement is clearer. I rather liked your specificity in the matter with regard to "in the United States"; a thing which narrows it down to your experience as an American (as opposed to the attitude: because it happens in the USA, it must be happening all over the world- the USA is the world! ).
The British have always had a healthy distrust of the psychologist and psychiatrist (they do not even make half of what their counterparts do across the … [More]
St. Catherine of Siena, the great 14th century religious mystic, transmitted the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ about the sin of homosexuality, which contaminated some of the clergy in her time, the Renaissance. Referring to sacred ministers who committed this sin, He told her:

Do those who believe it is sinful to steal suffer from a "phobia" of theft?
No offense, mate. But the studies that you are citing don't clearly state that homosexuality has a clear social cause. It's mostly speculation written by people who happen to share your opinion. You've cited it yourself: stuff CAN foster same-sex attraction. It CAN, but how can you state with 100% conviction that it does?

"many gay men and lesbians, like their heterosexual counterparts, desire to form stable, long-lasting and committed intimate relationships and are successful in doing so". Yes, I'm sure Satan is most grateful for that long-lasting relationship.
