Some can, some probably can’t.
REALLY tough question.
Note that the question implies that you must answer that either ALL can change or NONE can change.
I’m not sure that there is a simple Yes or No answer to this. My gut feeling is that for most the answer is probably “No”, but that there are some who are enough “in the middle” that they can kind of go in either direction.
Simultaneous post, to the second, with the same point.
That’s not easy to do.
Do you think alcoholics can stop drinking if they want to?
It’s a dumb poll. Why would they want to change if they like what they are doing? It should have said “do you believe homosexuality is hereditary or is it learned behavior?”
Yeah, I noticed that too, but you beat me to it by a little bit, so my kudos to you sir!
Insanely stupid wording.
Could they clap their hands and change their orientation? No. Is homosexual behavior a product of environment and mindset, as opposed to genetic inheritance? Largely yes. Can a mentally healthy person refrain from homosexual acts? Absolutely.
Homosexual acts are wrong. The lifestyle is wrong.
Could CNN report unbiased news, if they really wanted to?
Ask a gay person if they are willing to give up their way of life in exchange for being straight. The answer is usually a resounding 'no'. However, it is also a resounding admission that they have a choice.
Pro-gay sites are voting in droves on this poll.
They need to hear the other side.
Can a drug addict change their ways if they wanted to? Can an alchoholic change his ways if he wanted to? Can a porn addict change his ways if he wanted to? Substitute as many addictive behaviors as you want into the question.
Correct me if I am wrong, but is this not a religious question?
Why am I not seeing the poll on CNN’s link? Is this a viewer poll or a completed poll?
Well gays seem to think that straights can change, that’s why they are always recruiting.
I hate that use of the word ‘gay’.
I REFUSE to let a bunch of perverts hijack a perfectly good word!
I believe homosexuality is caused by humans perversion of something that God created to be good and normal. The same question could be asked: do you think a rapist could stop raping if he wanted to? humans have gone so far in their sensual/sexual desires and they always want more more more greed perverts. You might also ask: can a man have sex with just one woman for the rest of his life? the answer is yes he can does he want to? Usually no. and the more of the forbidden fruit that he has the more he wants a little freakier each time a little more perverse the next time then its perverted (in some jacked up cases) all the way to children and even to animals .
