    I though the vast majority of those people were being honest and reasonable.

    A surprising number were on point. And others admitted that they had been presented with an interesting question that challenged their viewpoints.

    That's pretty admirable if you ask me. They at least have enough awareness to recognize a new and different way of thinking about something important.

      they seemed universally open and reasonable.

      I would also say that something as complex as human sexuality doesn't necessarily boil down to a binary switch.  And we know that genetics can in part be affected by environment so one suspects that in fact there may be some nurture in the expression of one's sexuality that isn't purely nature.

      That of course doesn't mean sexuality is a "choice" it just means some of those folks may have been poorly expressing something that isn't totally inaccurate.

      At any rate, they all seemed like reasonable honest folks, and none of them seemed particularly anti-homosexual or strongly wedded to their views, well, except the ones who were on the right side of the issue.
