That's true in some cases, but sometimes one doesn't have to go through the consequence of an action in order to see the result. In other words, we can sometimes see a result without going through the motions.

I compare this to a surgeon who doesn't use surgical tools to operate on his patient. If a person claims to be a surgeon then they will use the required methods and tools to display their knowledge. If a person is a Christian, they will use the "tool" that God has given them (the Bible) to "dissect" what life and society throws at them.
Today most Christians have accepted evolution as part of God's design. Who is to say homosexuality is not something that will be accepted into religion?
Micro-evolution, yes. There is flexibility in DNA to represent different things of the same species. Dogs is a good example of this. Anyway, this is for another topic.

A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices.
In some regard, we are all bigots. We all have cherished beliefs that we hold on to dearly that we will not budge on.
I think the key is being respectful. I can get along with someone and be friends with them but I can be in utter disagreement with their views and opinions.
Case in point, I use to work with someone who is gay. She and I got along great. I would always joke around with her and goof off with her. However, I didn't agree with her on homosexuality. I didn't or don't hate her. I try to show love and respect towards her, but at the same time, I can disagree with her about homosexuality.

Hoping this gets things back on track:http://www.mygenes.co.nz/Ch12.pdf
If sexuality is "fluid" then homosexuality is not a necessity but a mixture of different things that influence a person's decision that can ultimately change a person's persuasion from one behavior to another.
