Inherited or inheritable, it doesn't matter. Most reasonable people realize that sexual orientation is no more a chosen behavior than is left-handedness. And just like being left-handed, rare does not equal abnormal.
Some people really need to ask themselves why they're so consumed with other people's sex lives.

It really has nothing to do with a "sex life" but the results of immorality on a nation
Homosexulaity is abnormal, self defeating because of the inability to reproduce, its preverse
And if its "reasonable" to say it that homosexulaity is inherited, prove it!
But of course you can't so clinging to unfounded personal opinions is REASONABLE?

"Some people really need to ask themselves why they're so consumed with other people's sex lives."
It's really quite simple. Normal, decent people have a natural desire to protect their children and a very big part of that is assuring that they grow up in a healthy society. There is nothing healthy about homosexuality and its pervasiveness in our culture. I think most of us can honestly say we really don't care what anybody does in the PRIVACY of their homes and bedrooms, but when they take it into the streets and the schools, the courts and the workplace and even into the churches, then it becomes EVERYBODY'S concern and if you really can't see that then you are part of the problem.

Truly reasonable people don't buy arguments that begin with:
Most reasonable people...
Well, if your sex life includes pedophilia, then as a parent I'll jump in your sex life with both feet, for example.
If you are a rapist, same deal.
If you are having sex with your own family, I'll jump in there too, but not with both feet. I'm not a fan of not having to publicly support the whacked out or mutated products of such intercourse.
If you like having sex with goats, and something infectious results, and I end up getting it, I'm going to be upset.
If you want to have sex with men, and you are a man, and you want to convince me that it is normal, then I'm going to ask how what you call sex ends up in the creation of offspring, since that's the primary function of sex.
Homosexuals suffer from the same basic denial that abortionists suffer from - they don't get that the act of intercourse is DESIGNED to produce offspring PRIMARILY and FUNDAMENTALLY.
That intercourse is either and act of love or sensory gratification is not really relevant to the discussion of whether homosexuality is normal. You can't have kids, ergo you have a disorder, learned or genetic - who cares.
I don't even want to speculate on whether it is learned or genetically coded. In the end, it's still an act you choose to perform, and it isn't naturally supported in any way by the human body, as it doesn't lead to reproduction.
I like the way you tried to equate homosexuality with left handedness. Try equating homosexuality to pedophilia and you are on solid logical ground again.
There is nothing a right handed person can do than a left handed person can do. Nothing about basical physical functions are impeded by being left handed (you can lift things, eat, reproduce, defend yourself).
Homosexuality is like pedophilia, not eye color. They are both rare and abnormal, and in my opinion destructive to both the participants and to society.
Marriage and heterosexuality are for the purpose of reproduction of the human species in a way that rears children into adults with the best chance at becoming optimally adjusted and functional in a civilized society.
Homosexuality does not offer children the best chance for children to become adults in a civilized society. It can't, by definition, and it never will.
I suspect that its an affliction more than it is chosen behavior. Lot's of disabilities prevent people from doing things other people do with ease. There's nothing just about it.
Homosexuals can't reproduce, and as such they shouldn't be parents, unless of course they are prepared to tell their kids that homosexuality is a disease we know very little about, and someday maybe they'll find a cure for it - but it is in no way normal.
Massively disingenuous for you to try to equate homosexuality with left-handedness. That's marketing dressed up as fact.
