Get over it, bigot coward. Your stupidity grows more each day.

How does it feel to be a low life coward who lives in mommy's basement?

A WIN FOR GAYS -- A WIN FOR CHILDREN
Newsdate 1-19-11 (AP) MIAMI - A gay Miami man has officially adopted two brothers after he successfully fought to overturn Florida's three-decade old ban on gay adoptions.
Martin Gill and his partner were the boys' foster parents for six years before the adoption was finalized Wednesday.
Gill and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the state, calling the ban unconstitutional. The 3rd District Court of Appeal agreed in a ruling last year. The state decided not to appeal.
Gill says he is thrilled they are "officially a family in the eyes of the law."
The prohibition was enacted in 1977 and court records indicate it's the only law of its kind in the United States.
The Department of Children and Families changed its forms so adoptive parents aren't asked if they're homosexuals.
That's wonderful to read! Those children are with the only parents they've ever known. I hope it sets a legal precedent & all are made to follow it. They will give those kids a better home life than many straight parents would & that's a fact.

Poor kids, screwed up for 6 years and now for life. This is disgusting. Notice these two gays adopted boys, what does that tell you? hum?
You're straight, right? Are you interested in having sex with your daughter? Don't tell me no because I'm certain you must have a boner for all the little females in your family. I say that because you insist that's how gays feel in regards to their children. Stop looking at your daughter that way, it's wrong & disgusting.

These gay men was given a CHOICE to adopt girls or boys. They CHOSE BOYS. Why did they CHOOSE the boys?
Apparently you choose to look at children in a sexual way sicko. I do not look at children that way you damned pedophile and yes males and females can be pedophiles and you sound like one. I think it is disgusting to give little boys to gay men as I do giving little girls to gay women. Gays are perverts.

How do you know they were given a choice between girls or boys? Provide a link that verifies that, post something that backs up your claim.

Of course I don't look at children in a sexual way, YOU were the one who raised the subject of adults looking at kids in a diviant manner, not me. YOUR mind was in the gutter, not mine. The proof of that is a few posts ahead of this one.

Gays are not perverts. You're the pervert for imagining the kinds of things you did to come to the ridiculous conclusion that you have in regarding gays being parents.

The subject matter comes in the form of an erroneous question that has already been answered, gay couples have been adopting and fostering children for decades and that is not even considering the mothers and fathers who are gay and have had heterosexual marriages.

Pedophilia is not exclusive to any sexual orientation, there are heterosexual pedophiles and homosexual pedophiles. This is just an attempt to stigmatize homosexuals when anyone asserts that pedophilia should be equated with homosexuality. For instance the Westboro baptist church believes that homosexuals eat human fecal matter, which is just insane thinking, both sexual orientations would have some fetishes which don't make up but a very small percentage of either group.

People just as well say that gays bleed green blood that can eat through steel like acid, makes about as much sense.

I have known of in my life, two different gay couples that adopted children. One was a lesbian couple and the other was a male homosexual couple neither couples were pedophiles and neither couples ever attempted to influence their children to be homosexual, you just don't decide to be homosexual you are or your not .

Matter of fact the two male homosexuals that had children (one boy and one girl) even encouraged them when they became teenagers to get out and date the opposite sex, neither of their children were gay, and their parents didn't give it a second thought. The son is now through college and engaged to married to a beautiful woman and both parents are extremely supporting of their sons marriage and love his future wife.

This is the exact church that wanted to picket the funeral of the little girl who was shot & killed recently in AZ. Several people were shot dead, several more wounded. They thought Gabby Giffords and everyone else got what they deserved. They did picket Elizabeth Edwards funeral because she supported gay rights. A CHURCH did that in the name of God.

Well I think they should be able to!!! Is it not better for these kids to have a home than to be a foster kid all there life and feel like no one loves them? You know being gay is no different than a black being with a white!! You are not living the life that most think you should and to be honest all the guy people I know have better hearts than the ones who aren't!! So I say YES these kids are just looking for love and they will not care if it comes from two moms or two dads!! LOVE IS LOVE!!

i heard about 2 gayguys who wanted one of thier own. they found a woman to be artificially insemenated to give birth for them using sperm from both gayguys. when the baby was born, they were standing outside the nursery window looking in at all the babies crying & fussing & asked the nurse which one was thiers. she told them the one over in the corner not making a sound was thiers. she told them that was the best newborn she had ever seen, it didn't cry or fuss at all, until you took the pacifier out of it's a$$.

why not allow them to foster or adopt? it woould be better than leaving the kids in some of the homes they come from. it would be better to have them in a stable gay/lesbian home than in a physically/sexually abusive home or with drunk and druggie parents. the kids should be the priority, not society's slanted take on the situatiion.

(CBS) A mother in Alaska has sparked outrage for allegedly punishing her son with hot sauce and cold showers. Now, she's the one facing punishment: charges of child abuse.

CBS News Correspondent Betty Nguyen reported on "The Early Show" Thursday a disturbing home video started it all.

Jessica Beagley, a 36-year-old mother of six, is seen disciplining her adopted son by making him hold hot sauce in his mouth. The reason for the severe punishment? He'd lied.

In the video, Beagley can be heard saying, "What happens when you lie to me?" The boy answers, "I get hot sauce. You get hot sauce."

The mom asks, "What else happens when you lie to me?"

The boy answers, "I get a cold shower."

The 7-year-old, adopted from Russia, is then put into a cold shower and can be heard screaming.

The video created an emotional uproar and resulted in criminal charges.

Beagley sent the video, shot by her 10-year-old daughter, to the "Dr. Phil" show, seeking help in disciplining her child.

Beagley said on the show, "I feel out of control."

But after the show aired, the video went viral, sparking a flood of Internet outrage.

One viewer said, "She doesn't treat him like a son. More like a warden to an inmate."

Another wrote, "They do that stuff to interrogate prisoners."

Viewers then complained to the Anchorage Police Department, which prompted prosecutors to charge Beagley with child abuse.

Court documents allege Beagley intentionally caused her son to be "tortured...cruelly punished or physically injured."

She has pleaded not guilty. But experts say Beagley's methods are dangerous to the child.

Dr. David Swanson, a psychologist, said, "Throwing a child in a cold shower is cruel, it's unusual and it's abusive. Giving hot sauce is to inflict pain. You're only reacting to your own anger and anxiety."

Swanson continued, "This is all about the mother's anger! This has nothing to do with teaching this child a lesson. This has everything to do with using this child as a target."

The boy remains in the Beagley's custody. She is due in court March 21.

On "The Early Show" co-anchor Chris Wragge remarked, "I talked to (Beagley's) attorney and he's saying,'You know what, this doesn't constitute child abuse.' But I just, watching the video, I have a hard time agreeing with that. I think anybody who's watching this is just -- "

Hill added, "When you hear those screams in the shower, it's just tough to listen to."
