Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain told CBS’ Brian Montopoli Wednesday that he believes gays and lesbians have a choice about their sexual preference.

“I believe homosexuality is a sin because I’m a Bible-believing Christian, I believe it’s a sin,” Cain said. “But I know that some people make that choice. That’s their choice.”

“So you believe it’s a choice?” Montopoli asked.

“I believe it is a choice,” Cain replied.
