I agree with you, people worry too much about one's sexual preference... or whatever they choose to be. That should be their own decision.
I think generally a few different factors lead into homophobic tendencies. Religion is one. Now this isn't to say everyone who is religious is some crazed hate filled zealot, but someone people who condemn homosexuality refer to their religion and ideology as a basis to go off on what is right and wrong.
Another factor could be environment as they might have been raised in a place or time where misconceptions and fear were key roles into homosexuality disdain .
I'm gay and my sister thinks it's wrong >.> I'm not sure why she feels that way, I'd support her no matter what. :/
I think homophobia is stupid, and unjust. Everyone should be able to love who and how they want.
I have two bisexual friends, and I support everything they do, including decisions in their love life.

So sorry for the confusion and if I said anything offending I am sincerelysorry. I feel really bad and embarrassed at the moment. I think I got confused between homosexuality and homophobia, and that, obviously can change everything.
How can you not?
Suppose you have 2 different societies. One is based on heterosexuals and the other based on homosexuals. The one based on homosexuals isn't going to last long and that society will be destroyed eventually. The one based on heterosexuals will at least be able to prosper.
(Oh, and I'm not going to argue with anyone on this topic, either.)
