If you'd read my post carefully, you'd see that I said "those parents"--not "all parents".
I fully recognize that not all heterosexual parents are abusive, neglectful, or provide a chaotic living environment.
But some do.
My point is that those homosexual (and heterosexual) couples who seek to adopt children are far less likely to be abusive, neglectful, or provide a chaotic living environment. The figure I found was that about 1% of adoptive homes were found to be abusive. The low number is directly related to the screening processes that potential parents must go through, as well as the fact that these children are WANTED by adoptive parents.
Are those facts enough for you, Kimmy?
You painted a bigoted picture.

That's the fact.

Aside from your continual whining, and failure once again to post reference (I trust nothing you say without it), that is the most trusted percentage.
If you can find a better source, along with validation, go for it.
You got called on a lie, man up queen!!!
Did you go to the Gallup website-- http://www.gallup.com/poll/158066/special-rep...

You'll see that 3.4% of Americans identify as LGBT. Their poll found that 92.2% identified as heterosexual. The important figure comes in the remainder of those people who either reported "don't know" or "refused". Those numbers could go either way.

And as I pointed out, even Gallup pollsters agree that because of the stigma that still exists, actively gay people may "define" themselves as heterosexual.

We all know that there are deeply closeted gay people--some of whom are in heterosexual marriages.

So the 3.4% figure is low.

I stand by my figures.

Aside from your stupid attempt to turn the tables, we've been talking about the results of no-fault divorce and the consequences to children.
Moreover, adoption, step, foster all show significant drops in child welfare from birth parents (the context we were addressing).
Ss couples will ALWAYS deprive a child of one gender and at least one natural parent. Clearly a defective solution to a default situation.
So, it's better that children linger in the foster care system as opposed to being adopted by loving, caring, resourceful, stable, same-gender couples?

Just another example of you throwing children under the bus in order to further your anti-homosexual agenda.

You'll stop at nothing, which makes you a monster beyond anything you've ever admitted to.

No, it's an example of seeking the best for the child.

Who said anything about leaving them?

Here again, you seem to think that homosexuals are looking at how heterosexuals live their married lives--trying to learn from you.
We're adults. We know what we want out of marriage.
Just because you guys screw up your marriages doesn't mean that we have any intention of doing the same.
God, the absolute arrogance you have! You honestly believe that gays look up to you--believing that you know better than us as to how to live our lives.
Look up heterosexist and heterosexism.
What a douche...
So, as you call him arrogant, you claim that you "have no intention of doing the same", as if people entered into marriage without a thought or care, and that you guys will not make the same mistakes that people (in general) do. As well as claiming that it takes gays to really know how to "be married".

Homosexism" is the belief that gay or lesbian identities are superior to bisexual and/or straight orientations. The "homosexist" viewpoint sometimes leads to discrimination against those who are not homosexual.

I don't see why Big D and others feel the need to try and spin it that having children is not one of the main reasons we give government benefits to marriage. It's not necessary to lie. It's counterproductive.
Even childless marriages are good for society, that should be their argument if they were honest.
For them, it's necessary. Vital, in fact. They HAVE to remove the original impetus, else it's a lost cause for them. If we remember that children were the focal point, they'd be denied the adoptions, the rights, the benefits and then, where would they be?

A trial of a former Butte County sheriff's deputy charged with arranging to meet a minor for a sex act.

The superior court judge listened Earl William Klapperich's three-hour interview after his arrest on May 11, 2012.

Klapperich, 28, asserted he ONLY intended only to counsel the 14-year-old girl he was exchanging text & photo's messages with?.

Me too. Big D just goes away for a while after you catch him lying, then comes back the next day like nothing happened and calls everyone else liars.
Ever notice he only posts during working hours? Stealing the boss's time.
He's not stealing the boss's time, he's a corporate tool. It is why he posts all the drivel about "Freedon, justice and the American way". He's dependant on that job. They are watching him and monitoring his posts. Big D and all of cronies, Big E, Big H, and all of the others are mandated to spend time undermining America. Must be an Asian company that he works for.
