Is it a choice?

Re: Verse reading–Ezekiel 18:1-18 (day seven)
“Suppose there is a righteous man who does what is right. . .he will surely live. . .  Suppose there is a  violent son who sheds blood . . .he will surely be put to death.”  (v 5,9,10, 13)  One of the great moral debates of this generation centers around same sex attraction and homosexual behavior.  Is it a choice?  “No”, say those who advocate for societal acceptance.  “This is the way God made me”.  The scientific data is still indefinite.  However, one thing is certain.   Even within the variations of our attractions and sexual interest there are very real choices being made.  Do I come to God with my sexuality?  Do I subordinate it to His holy will or does it become an idol?  Do I participate in impurity?  NONE of us can control all circumstances of interior or exterior life.  ALL of us have choices that either lead to freedom or bondage.  In that sense, it is a choice!
