The fact that we did not choose our heterosexual orientation is no excuse
for us to commit heterosexual acts forbidden by Scripture. In order to
follow the Lord's commands and His will for our lives it may be necessary
for us heterosexual Christians to practice celibacy for long periods of
time, even in some cases all our lives.
