personally i don't have anything against gay people. I don't care who they hook up with, but why does everything have to be about them. It just seems like straight people don't have any rights anymore.

i really don't care about a person's sexual preference.to each his own as they say.actually,straight people have more rights than a gay person does.they can also go through life and their relationships without most of the world making fun,ridiculing and torchering them about it.although i am straight myself,i do have some gay friends.some of them you would never know unless they told you.
i think it is wrong that people have a problem with other people just because they are different and don't follow the same path as most of the rest of the world.people are people and as long as they aren't hurting others let them live their lives the way they want to.

Hey, Bob! Can you clarify "rights"? The right to marry? The right for civil / union medical? The right to have, and or, adopt a child?

Is it even "right" for a gay person to bring up and raise a child? Serve in combat on the front lines of battle?

I believe the nation (as a whole) is going to hell-in-a-hand-basket (to barrow that phrase). I personally do not think that a gay person should have the right to adopt or raise a child. This, of course, would "confuse" the child to his, or her, own course to which he or she should fall in love and marry the opposite sex.

Am I totally off-base here, or would our Fore Father's be rolling over in their graves right now if they knew where this Nation was heading?

DON'T miss understand me. I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A GAY PERSON OR LESBIAN. Great people, and I have many friends within the corporate community whom are. Wonderful! However, I think I understand what Bob is saying and getting at. It seems that every time a "heterosexual" wants to (let's say file a court paper or apply for another benefit) and is denied, and if a homosexual applies and is denied, all they (gay) have to do is scream "sexual bias", and you know damn well that court would grant everything in the world to them! You see it almost everyday in the news!

Whatever happen to American "morals"?

Dave,

I am a divorced mother of very young child trying to figure out what rights I have to rear my child in a way that keeps him as "innocent" as possible. Innocent of all the immoral things going on in the world. My child's daddy decided he wanted to be gay. Well I guess that is his right, but I don't want my child to be made to be a part of his life. He chose his life. Why should my baby be made to experience his lifestyle? The court system says that I have to share custody with my ex even while he is sharing a bed with another man. How do you answers questions from a young child about.....Why is daddy sleeping with....?

Everytime I try to research cases or how I might be able to have custody, I just keep getting hit in the face about gay rights! What rights do I have?

I will never agree with gay people it's not right!! In my church that's how i was raised,also I dont believe in this dumb stuff that they were born this way. Sorry everyone choosing what they want in life just like people choose to do drugsand drink. So you cant tell me that they were born with that to. So gay folks get a life! God wants Man & Women together....

Bob... You can always go to court and have no over night stays unless that person is married. Since u can't get married to the same sex in kentucky that shouldn't be a problem. Just proving that he is having overnight stays is a problem

I have several friends that are gay. They are wonderful people and I do believe that they deserve as much as straight people do. What is the differents between two straight people raising a child that is gay and two gay people raising a child that is straight? Nothing.. It is not how they are raised that makes them gay.. They just are gay..

exactly. there are alot of gay people that were raised in a heterosexual household with heterosexual parents that probably went to church yet their son or daughter became gayanyway.so,what is the difference in a gay couple raising a child.if the child is going to be gay,he or she is going to be gay reguardlessof how you raise him or her.there are plenty of examples of this around town.

OMG...Just because you were "raised" one way doesn't mean that "THAT" is the the way everyone is suppose to live their lives. Perhaps your belief is not correct??? No one is trying to change your beliefs...JUST try to be open minded with people that don't believe the same as you!

Bob...(or now is it Bobbet? Knowing now you're a "single mother"...) Sorry to hear that your husband left you for another MAN! Whew! That sucks! I like the advice which Hey Hey Hey wrote about petitioning the courts about "no overnight stays". Good point!

As for the other Einsteins who think that a person is "born" gay, is a crock of crap! I guess people are also "born" drug addicts too? Or possibly "born" to rob and do other violent crimes? That a child cannot be "trained" to be gay?

So, YOUR son (wykkan, HWY 1710, and no name) brings another guy home from college and introduces him as his "boyfriend". I guess you'll just smile and beam and say, "That's my boy!" or "Oh well, I guess you were born that way!" Whoo-hoo! Yea!

Look... a child can be "trained" to accept and do anything. That's why they are a CHILD! Young, innocent, eager to learn. We "mold" them and "train" them. Duh... We, as parents, are obligated and responsible for raising them to be better than WE are.

Wykkan wrote: if the child is going to be gay, he or she is going to be gay regardless of how you raise him or her.

How do you get off by saying that? Just bring them home from the hospital and put them in the street, why don't you! It's already a done deal! They're going to turn out "regardless of how you raise them", right? Come on! Think about that!

I'm not "preaching" church, religion, or beliefs. It just makes moral sense! I, personally, am very "open" to homosexuals. Like you, I have friends who are gay. Bobbet's point was, that she does not want her son be "exposed" to the gay relationship. Again, her innocent child is at the age where he will be asking the questions about, "Why is Daddy sleeping with another man?" "Why is Daddy kissing another man?" "Mommy, why don't you kiss another girl?"

Thank about it, dude!

alright,i'll bite on this one. explain why some gays come from a normal,everyday set of heterosexual parents that go to chuch every sunday,teach him right from wrong,talk the 'regular'facts of life with him [you know where the man has sex with the woman and that's how they make a baby],they do everything that everyday regular parents do to raise their child to be a normal,regular,everyday person and he grows up to be gay anyway.if a child is what you raise it to be then where exactly did they raise the child to be gay??
and in answer to your question,yes i would still love my son or daughter and have no problem with them if they turned out to be gay.atleast they wouldn't be a rapist,satan worshipper or child molester. and atleast they would be healthy and alive.when you bring a child into this world it is suppose to be with unconditional.you don't stop loving your child just because they grew up to be different from you.

Both male and female queers can marry, they just have to marry someone from the opposite sex.This is where they get confused and try to make others get involved with their troubles. just ignore them and they will go away.

Once again my point is made. I was wanting to know what rights I have, what I could do for my child but somehow turns into the rights that gay people have. Thank you, Hey Hey Hey, for your suggestion. I actually have asked my lawyer about overnight stays. The law does not see homosexuality as wrong. Eventhough they do not have a problem limiting overnight stays in heterosextual divorce couples.
People are afraid to limit or say anything negative about gay people because they can say that we are being biased because they are gay. When in fact that is not the case!

This is my last response. I was just venting because I was frustrated....thanks for listening/reading.
Really now

To the person who wrote this.... I am in complete aww of you and how you speak your mind. I have two wonderful and loving nephews under ten years old whos mother is currently going through a divorce and has since been dating a lovely girl who is great with my nephews and is very good to them. They know that this is moms "friend" but that is all that is really said about her when it comes to the kids knowing of their mothers personal choices. The are beautiful, smart, loving and well educated young men. They have never been put in harms way nor ever will be. Being a parent in a homosexual relationship does not mean that you are a bad one. More and more people are starting to realize this and have finally begun opening their eyes to this kind of parenting. My sister may one day decide to date men again or she could remain gay until the end. But either way, them boys could really care less about who mommy is kissing because all they feel is their love for one another. Family comes first and always should no matter what!
