Homosexuals emphasize that their sexual inclination towards the same gender is a result of their nature. They say that they did not choose to be gay, they were born gays! In fact, this is only a fake argument. There is no truth in it. Homosexuality is just as much a matter of choice as is the matter of choice of clothes, school or friends. There is no doubt in the fact that human nature is attracted towards evil things. Porn attracts even the most pious of humans because it is human nature, though not everybody watches it. It is our own decisions that depict what we our irrespective of our sexual inclination. Many straight people may feel attracted towards people from the same gender sexually at some points in their life. Likewise, many homosexuals feel sexually attracted towards people from opposite gender at some points in their life. It so happens with everybody and is quite normal to happen, but this does not depict if an individual is a gay or not, unless the individual chooses to resolve that he/she is a gay. The validity of this argument can be estimated from the fact that homosexuality is strictly forbidden in nearly all the religions. If one was destined to be a gay, one would not be punished for indulging in homosexual practices. But that is not the case. The Holy Books clearly mention the punishment for homosexuals as will be discussed shortly.
Homosexuality may, in part, be an outcome of the nurture. Adopted children growing up in gay families in gay marriages may not consider homosexuality wrong, since they have been seeing their so-called parents cohabit since the very early years of life.
Their cognitive development approves of the relationship of their so-called parents, and they develop the tendency to be homosexual as well, but again, it is a matter of choice! The religious perspective: Homosexuality is considered a sin in many religions including Islam, Christianity, and Jewism, though it has always been there. In Quran, that is the Holy Book of Islam, there is the discussion of the people of Lut, who was the messenger of God. A vast majority of the people of Lut were gays. The men did sex with men. Women were not taken interest in. God sent Lut to those people so as to advise them to leave homosexuality and obey God. But the people refused to follow the word of God. Owing to their disobedience, they were punished by God. The people of Lut rejected (his) warning. We sent against them a violent Tornado with showers of stones, (which destroyed them), except Lut's household: them We delivered by early Dawn,- As a Grace from Us: thus do We reward those who give thanks. And (Lut) did warn them of Our Punishment, but they disputed about the Warning. (Surat al-Qamar:, 33-36 cited in Anon, n.d.). Homosexuality is a heinous crime in many religions like Islam, and the religions dictate severe punishments for those who indulge in homosexuality both in this world and in the world hereafter. God made man and woman two separate genders purposefully. Their bodies have been designed in a way that the two can produce children. Two people belonging to the same gender can not produce children. This essentially tells that homosexuality is against the law of nature. Homosexuality: A social taboo: Despite the advancement and modernity of societies in the present age, homosexuality is still considered as a social taboo even in countries where gay rights have
