There are too many kids out there who need adopting. Conservatives, Evangelical Christians and others want to limit or do away with the right of a woman to choose to have a baby or not. Offering other alternatives means: have the baby and put it up for adoption. That adds more kids to the adoption system. As many potential adoptive parents as we can get are needed, so denying a gay couple adoptive rights is counterproductive. Kids need parents! Loving parents! Who cares what gender they are? These kids were put into adoption in the first place because no one loved or wanted them. Against their "religious beliefs"?? What would Jesus do?

Children need to be a part of a family-whether the family is black, white, brown or other!! The sexual identy makes no difference! They need love and caring adults-gay, straight, old, young or somewhere in between!!!! To deny gay couples the right to love and adopt is wrong!! The narrow minded law makers sitting in Richmond need to take off their right wing blinders and think of the hundres of children who need the stability of a home and loving parents or even a single parent!!!

As long as the adopting family is safe and able to care of the needs of the child to be adopted who cares about what they look like or anything else? What matters is their heart and that they are good to the child.

To the three of you that judged anrn2's comments as "clueless" can you please provide some explanation to your actions? Do provide a valid argument for why homosexuals shouldn't be able to adopt children and provide them with a loving home. There is absolutely NO factual evidence showing that gay parented households suffer in compassion with heterosexually parented households. In fact, many times homosexually parented households are MORE stable than heterosexually parented households. Read for yourself: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/16/gay-...

I'll give you a good explanation, because the Bible calls this an abomination, and if they don't change their ways and ask GOD for forgiveness they are going to hell.

Just like every other religious fanatic....you preach love but all you spew is fear and hate. A child in a stable loving home is a child in a stable loving home regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation of the parents. Thump your bible elsewhere.

Oh, and I do believe "wow" asked for VALID arguments......that means facts supported by evidence, not excerpts from your make believe book.

Don't get me wrong, I respect your right to believe whatever you want religiously. And I support your right to let that belief guide you in YOUR actions....but DON'T use it as an arguement to condemn others!
Wow

Mind YOUR own business! You do NOT have the right to push your right wing, backwards RELIGIOUS views on people who don't care for your religion. Did you even read the article? The article contains SCIENTIFIC DATA that backs the claims made in the article. Your claims are backed by a book that was written over 2,000 years ago! Wake up and smell the coffee, this is the 21st century!

The Bible also says that it's okay for me to sell my daughter into slavery.

How much do you think I should ask for her?

God does not hate, the Bible was written by bigotted men that has no relevance to today, God loves and wants only the best for everyone and everyone to be fair and good to each other. Only evil goes to hell, being gay is not evil its just how they are and I plan on seeing all the good gay men and women in heaven one day.

Research it for yourself scum baggy redneck christardo... Now go play with that sisterwife and let people who know things talk
You burned out old bean bag hag. Those nations are no longer important in the scheme of things, and you are right there with them. Nothing like watching your old wrinkled nasty carcass burn like strips of bacon. You will not escape the judgement thats coming to you.

All children deserve a family!!!! If you don't like who the children are going to then you adopt them.
