Nature or nurture? Both, I expect, but more nature.
Confused about your sexuality? Of course! What adolescent isn't at some point?
Prone to? I don't know. But there are plenty of bisexual people around. Is that the same?
There's certainly a subset of the gay community that could probably be considered promiscuous. Just like heterosexual people. There's also millions of them who have non-promiscuous sex lives. Just like heterosexual people.
I don't think gay people are any more or less spiritual than anybody else. Why would they or wouldn't they be? I don't really understand this one. I also fail to equate "religious" with "spiritual." The two can and do exist totally separately. Religion is not spirituality, spirituality is not religion.
I can't answer your question about preachers. Its just a job like any other, to me, but I don't come from a religious background. I respect such people as people, but not as a job title, any more than I would respect a plumber for being a plumber. Why shouldn't gay ones be allowed to do it?
