Lev. 20:9-21 makes it clear how God views sex between anyone but one's opposite-sex spouse to be sin. Likewise, Rom. 1:26-27, being written after the church began, makes it clear that this has not changed. 1 Cor. 5 shows as well that even some heterosexual practice is sin, and how to deal with it when the sinner is unrepentant. 1 Cor. 6:9-11 lists homosexual practice among things Christians must not do, that people who were saved were washed and cleansed from.

So while a person may not be able to change whatever their weakness is, they must not practice these sins. If they do, either by not admitting it's sin or by refusing to stop, they have to be expelled from Christian fellowship. This doesn't mean they're to be hated or mistreated, but to be loved and prayed for, that they may repent and be restored to fellowship, as shown in 2 Cor. 2:5-11.
