Does crazy anti-masturbation activist, aka GOP Senate candidate, think homosexuality is an identity disorder?

From Greg Sargent at the Plum Line:

This passage from a 2006 profile of Christine O’Donnell in Delaware’s Wilmington News Journal may not be conclusive, but it certainly cries out for further exploration:
She considers homosexuality an identity disorder and sees pornography and the lust it engenders as selfish gratification.

“Sex is a covenant between a man and a woman and God,” she says. “Your job is to satisfy the other, the giving of oneself to another. Porn turns that around.”

She practices what she preaches, she says. She’s had boyfriends, but they don’t last long when they realize her seriousness concerning chastity before marriage.

Is that what O’Donnell believes? The story reads as if O’Donnell told the reporter in some fashion or other that she views homosexuality as an identity disorder, as part of a broader discussion of sex and religion. The reporter wrote it down as a paraphrase.
