Why do homosexuals believe that homosexuality is not a sin?

(Jackson, MS, United States)
Homosexuals believe homosexuality is not a sin because there is nothing sinful about people's sexual orientation per se. Homosexuality and heterosexuality are sexual orientations, not sins or sinful conditions.
All homosexuals and all heterosexuals are sinners from birth because we all are born with a sin nature, Romans 3:23, 5:12.
Some of us are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus Christ), Romans 5:9, Revelation 12:11 and some folks are still lost and unsaved because they have not received "the gift of God which is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord," Romans 6:23.
I must answer your question with another question.
When did you make a decision to be heterosexual instead of homosexual?
If you never made a decision to be heterosexual instead of homosexual, if you never chose heterosexuality for youself, then why do you believe that we made a decision to be homosexual instead of heterosexual?
No Bible verse alleged to condemn homosexuality is addressing the issue of homosexuality when read in context.
