"I like chocolate chip ice cream, and I will continue to like chocolate chip ice cream. So there's no worry about me changing to vanilla. I like to, you know, ride my motorcycle. What do you want me to do? You want me to change my behavior and ride a scooter? I'm not into that. People can change their sexual behavior. And I've seen people do that. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, so I've seen a very different perspective on human behaviors. So that's where I'm coming from on that."

-- Republican Congressman Allen West to the Ft Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel editorial board after being questioned on his views on whether or not people are born gay. West did say he supported civil unions legislation, however.
