If a person is attracted to someone of the same gender, it doesn't feel right to tell them that they should have to behave differently than those who aren't. It doesn't feel fair, it doesn't feel kind.

God knew that would be an easy trap for us, which is why I think it's such a recurring theme in scripture.

Isaac wanted to give hid eldest son Esau his blessing, but Rebekah wanted their younger son Jacob to receive it, so she had him trick the blind old man into thinking he was the hairier Esau by putting goat skins on his hands and neck.

Genesis 27:22 So Jacob came near to Isaac his father. Isaac touched him and said, "Your voice sounds like Jacob’s voice, but your hands are hairy like the hands of Esau."

Isaac knew Esau's voice, but he allowed himself to be led by "feeling". And as Christ would later say:

John 10:27-28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me
