What's Wrong with "Choice" America?

The other day, President Obama stated: "Homosexuality is not a choice."

How does he know? Certainly, many homosexuals are born with a natural attraction to the same sex. But jut as many may simply be curious, and choose to experience homosexuality out of a sense of adventure, or rebellion; even disdain for the opposite sex.

If there is nothing wrong with homosexuality - as we say - then in a free society - as we profess to have - "choice" must be as viable a reason for doing something as anything else.

I missed the particulars of the President making such a statement. I disagree with him. I believe individual "choice" becomes prevalent when individual cognisant of will exist. Whether bound or with liberty. "All appeared new, and strange at first, inexpressibly rare and delightful and beautiful. I was a little stranger, which at my entrance into the world was saluted and surrounded with innumerable joys. My knowledge was divine. I knew by intuition those things which since my Apostasy, I collected again by the highest reason." Thomas Traherne, British cleryman, poet, expressed back in 1672. I can be a product of the environment I grew up in, however, my choice to depart from the ways of my origin is my "choice". Either way it goes, regardless of the issue. Does that make sense?
