If I were a Christian

If I were a Christian, I might look out upon God's Creation for clues about God's Will. And it might occur to me that the fact that in the animal world, incidence of homosexual behavior increases as population density increases might indicate that homosexuality was God's particularly clever plan for population control which gives people the opportunity to lead happy, fulfilling lives while not pushing the population into catastrophic disaster levels.

But that would require thinking that God has all of humanity's best interests at heart, and it is clear that that is an idea that is missing from many theologies.
