What about people who are born schizophrenic? Does that mean that they don't need treatment?
Then there are those who are born with a genetic predisposition towards alcoholism. Since they were "born that way" does that mean that alcoholism is actually a healthy lifestyle for those people?
in your opinion though it is a sin ... i see nothing wrong with men or women carrying on a relationship with the same sex ... if they are in a loving, monogomous relationship, i see nothing wrong with it ... i agree you were taught that it is a sin .. that is fine ... i still don't think a parent should be able to put their kid through "therapy" which involves some would say torture for an "ailment" the teen doesn't feel is detrimental to their well-being ..
