In the article "State: no evidence of abuse at 'ex-gay' camp", I find the following quote amusing as hell:

John Smid, executive director of Love in Action, defended the program. "We understand people don't have control over what they feel, but we teach them they are able to control what they do," Smid said in a quote published by the AP. "We don't have to act on those desires, even if we feel them."

So basically Smid is admitting that people can't control their orientation--so it obviously is not a choice--and they can do nothing to change people's orientation. The best they can do is get people to repress their orientation by not acting on it.
