Homosexuality in your genes?

"Homosexuality is a result of many genes," ("Erbgutstudie: Homosexualität ist Ergebnis vieler Gene"), German magazine Der SPIEGEL titles an article in today’s online edition. And I am once more amazed at how absolute such a statement can be posited # especially since the careful reader of the article will quickly find out that a genetic origin of homosexuality is nothing but a theory which has not been proven until today. Researchers have neither been able to point out a single gene responsible for homosexuality ("Ein einzelnes Schwulen-Gen wurde aber nie entdeckt"), nor has the latest study more to offer than a small statistic anomally in a test group of 456 men.
Could this be because there is a much simpler, more convincing answer available? At least in my Bible, homosexuality is one of the manifestations of a perverted, sinful mind and lifestyle (Romans 1:28ff). But of course, to say this would be way too intolerant, wouldn’t it?
