There's no doubt that some of these were... inappropriately touched... as children. There's definitely cases where that occurs.Perhaps not "born that way" in the sense of genetics, but if, say, early childhood trauma/abuse resulted in the same then saying whether it's innate or not is a matter of semantics.
I know some may say that people are choosing to have the feelings/urges, but if an individual has already made up their mind to NOT give in to them, how does it benefit to continue having the feelings? Why would someone choose to have a more difficult life?
There seems to be a gray area between it being a choice and innate.
But behavior is always a choice.
Myself, personally, I consider homoism to be defined by the practice. I don't care whatever desires pop into a person's head. As far as this topic- the shariah, as with the OT, is concerned with the action. If they engage in the practice, it is a huge sin as well something that merits.... severe legal punishment by the state, as per the law ordained by our Creator.
as far as desires, desires are not a sin. I don't care what desires a person has.
