The question has long been -- is homosexuality a choice or is it something some people simply are? And if there is a biological component, what does that mean? Especially if you're a Christian?
There are a number of Christian "ex-gay" organizations, such as Exodus International. What has been interesting to watch is the number of leaders of these organization who are unable to stay "straight." Now it's being reported that Exodus International's director, Alan Chambers, is disavowing the idea of being an "ex-gay." The idea that one can be cured is becoming untenable -- at best one can learn to control/manage one's desires, but the idea that they go away is problematic -- in large part because there is a growing understanding of the biological basis.
This doesn't mean we're near a break through that will change the debate, but things are changing. And, hopefully we will come to that point where this isn't any longer a matter of debate!
