I understand what you are saying, but disagree.
For instance, using eczema as an comparison is a poor analogy. We’re talking about a disorder of the mind, a biological disorder, not a skin condition.
Just common sense tells you that homosexuals are different (disordered) from “typical” humans. It’s a disorder that manifests in the mind, either through chemical changes or genetics or whatever, no one knows yet. It’s evidenced in behavior. The female characteristics in males and male characteristics in females. Simple knowledge of anatomy indicates that men are not supposed to have sex with men. But the homosexual is drawn to that, I believe through no fault of their own. In comparison, an alcoholic is drawn to alcohol even while knowing that they cannot tolerate the chemical and it will eventually destroy their lives.
The DSM of the APA labeled homosexuality as a disorder (prior to l973). I believe it is, there is no scientific proof otherwise.
Anyway, as you can tell by some of the posts on this thread, “Christians” have a long way to go before they understand that calling someone a sinner does not draw them to Christ.
should say “a PSYCHOLOGICAL” disorder.

Reddy, Jesus called people sinners.
Be not conformed to this world.
If it was something you could not help, you would not be liable for hell for it. God isn’t like that.
You can repent of homosexuality. You can repent of alcohol abuse. You can repent of fornication and adultery, too. It is not something that “happens” to you as you innocently sit by. It is chosen, sinful behavior.
Shall I say I was created heterosexual so I get to go fornicate? I can’t do that.
