I have a best friend who is gay and he has some pretty good points against homophobes. i would like someone to discuss these with.

Sure, let's chat about them.

yay. he says that if you aren't gay how can you tell him that it's a choice, and even if you are and you try to say that it is that may have been the case for you but it doesn't work the same for everyone. that's just a basic thing. the rest is all religious.

Being a serial killer isn't okay, even if it's caused by something that isn't someone's choice (e.g., having schizophrenia.) Just because being gay isn't a choice doesn't mean that it is okay; that's a leap of logic. Anyway, no one's found the "gay gene" yet, if it exists at all.

Do you have anything else to add?

killing someone and who you love are two different things. you don't kill people you love. your argument is irrelevant.

Just because someone "loves" someone or something doesn't make it okay. A pedophile loving a child in a romantic fashion is not okay; it is immoral sexual perversion. And it doesn't matter whether or not the pedophile is biologically predisposed to have romantic affection toward young, prepubescent children; we still don't find it "okay."

Con used outdated information by saying Gay Gene. It is now believed to be epi-genetics and research has been backing up this claim. There is now more evidence of being born gay than it being a choice.

False. Being gay is fabulous! No, that was a joke, sorry for the stereotyping, being gay is certainly ok.
