Citizens for Community Values Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“It should be noted here also that homosexuality is not genetic. This false claim has been repeated so often and so loudly that a disturbing majority of the public has accepted it as truth. Absolutely no research supports this claim. To the contrary, thousands of people have overcome this desire, have withdrawn from homosexual behavior and have gone on to enjoy fulfilling heterosexual relationships.”
