GOP presidential contender says prisons prove homosexuality is a choice

Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon, who is likely going to run for president as a Republican, says "a lot of people who go into prison, go into prison straight and when the come out they're gay." And this proves that being gay is "absolutely" a choice.

I don't think being gay is a choice, but even it were a choice, so what? Why should people have fewer rights for choosing to be gay? I'm glad most young Republicans consider same sex marriage to be a non-issue.
