Well, duh!

Of course it is an “orientation” like homosexuality. In fact, they very often overlap.

But it’s not who we are attracted to that is the problem. We all have desires that someone may consider dark. No, it’s what we do with those feelings that counts morally.

And acting upon them is what strengthens the behavior. People need to know how to say "no". They need to realize that when they are being tempted is often, at least in the beginning, it originates from the outside of themselves as it is demonic instigation. Often someone has been opened up to the demonic influence because of demons that may have attached themselves to their family from even before they were born or something evil was done to them as a child or young person. Very often they themselves have waded into pornography or some suchlike perversion not realizing that they were by their own actions opening themselves up to a host of demons assigned to bring them down into the depth of hell in any way that they might be weak and fall.
