That's a good question, there seems to be no explanation for bisexuality.

That makes a whole lot of sense. Other forms of sex aren't for reproduction, rather they are for pleasure of oneself and/or partner(s). Thus, other forms of sex should also be deemed as "unnatural"

Honestly, I don't know if you can religious beliefs in such a debate. As soon as you put God/Allah/The Creator in a debate, beliefs seems to dominate rather than reason. I'm glad that you do have such religious beliefs (and I have my own set of spiritual beliefs), but I think that once religion is put into a debate, then arguments like "It's in the BIBLE" or "GOD said so" start coming in, and that's too vague of an answer.

I agree, society does determine whether certain lifestyles are "wrong" or "unacceptable"

It is unfair, bottom line is that it's moreso untrue than unfair. Pedophilia isn't limited to the homosexual population
