President Obama said Thursday that he believes homosexuality is not a choice, but the result of people being born with "a certain make-up."
His comment came during a town hall-style event - hosted by Viacom's BET, CMT and MTV networks - in which students asked him questions.
A student asked Obama if he believed homosexuality is a choice. Obama responded he was no expert, then added: "I don't think it's a choice. I think people are born with a certain make-up."
"We're all children of God," Obama said. "We don't make determinations about who we love. That's why I think discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is wrong."
