The rise of homosexuality is probably caused both by an increase in "outings" due to a greater social acceptance and an increase of homosexuality due to social engineering by "education", media, the music industry and Hollywood.

True. However, during most of human history homosexuality was considered a deviance and homosexuality was not very visible in society. It was put in the same category as pedosexuality, necrophilia or sadomassochism: a sexual perversion that should not be at most tolerated in private as long as its consentual and monogamous.

Whether homosexuality does indeed fall in the same category as pedosexuality, necrophilia or sadomassochism and whether either of these behaviors are perversions or different variations of normality is not the issue here. This seems to be a matter of culture and individual morality rather than an absolute. And whether or not homosexuality figures rose only due to a greater amount of "outing" as a consequence of greater social acceptance or whether modern culture has fueled an increase of homosexuality itself can't be answered by looking at the greater social acceptance of homosexuality alone.

I suspect a difference in morality between liberals and conservatives is more important than religion or differences in religious beliefs.

One of my best friends is a lesbian, yet that doesn't mean I believe homosexuality is not a deviance and that homosexuality does not increase as a consequence of social engineering. I respect her as an individual and I do not treat her any different because she has chosen a woman as a sexual and emotional partner, yet that doesn't mean I believe homosexuality is as normal and as healthy as heterosexuality. I also don't treat people any different when I know they've used cocaine or speed in their past or even in the present, yet that doesn't mean I support their way of life. I believe truely respecting one another means not treating each other differently while disagreeing with their lifestyle or philosophy.

It does. When a fertile man and a fertile woman have unprotected sex, the conception of a child is the logical outcome. With just two fertile men or just two fertile women there is no way to conceive a child that's biologically related to both parents. As such, the threshold to procreation is far greater for homosexual couples than for heterosexual couples.

Homosexuality has both a genetic and a cultural factor. Culture can influence the individual's sexual preference and turn a genetic heterosexual into a homosexual and vice versa, depending on the input coming from that culture. The change in sexual preference can be compared with how some men are drawn to women's clothing and some women are drawn to men's clothing. It makes no sense for this to be purely biological since clothing itself is a purely cultural creation.
