Is it a choice?

Having long rolled my eyes at the debate over whether homosexuality is a choice, can I get an explanation of this argument from someone?

Why do so many heterosexuals (and even some homosexuals apparently, though I've never met encountered one this opinion) honestly believe homosexuality to be a conscious choice despite all scientific evidence pointing away from this conclusion and all gay people knowing pretty much for a fact that it's not true? Is it just stubborness and ignorance or is there some honest-to-goodness reason for this way of thinking? I'm pretty sure the Bible makes absolutely no mention of the origin of sexuality. Tenuous research into the field shows some direct biological correlations. Anyone who is of this thinking, could you provide me insight into how you draw your conclusion.
