The fact that a person feels same-sex attraction is not the sin. Acting on the feelings is.

No, lust is a sin as well. If you have thought it, Christ said, you’re as guilty as if you did the deed. That’s why we are commanded to struggle against the lusts of the flesh and not pretend that they are A-Okay.

Exactly. Temptation is not sin. It's temptation.

Jesus was tempted and yet He never sinned.

Romans 1:26-28
“26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

Matthews 5:27
“27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery : 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”
