I don't think it should be allowed. The kids are going to be brought up thinking that this kind of lifestyle is ok, and it is not. God created adam and eve not adam and steve.

Hey, I have an idea. Why don't they have their own children and leave the innocent children alone? Oh, I know why....because it is impossible!

Why don't all you ridiculous hypocrites go and adopt one of the 120,000 children without a family in our country? No...of course not...just sit back behind your computer screen and criticize people who do. WHY?? Because they live a different lifestyle than you?? WHO CARES?! They are opening their hearts and home to a child. Living with someone who is gay will not make that child gay. After all, the gay person must have lived with a straight parent and that didn't make them straight.

Before bashing gay couples for adopting, educate yourselves. Most children end up in care because their straight, abusive, neglectful parents would rather keep doing drugs and partying all hours of the night like the awesome dad Jacob than take care of their kids. Because many of these children are not cute babies straight couples are not interested. I praise gay couples for stepping up and offering these kids a home and family, especially since most of these kids are damaged from their experiences and are challenging.

Seriously? Being gay doesn't make them any different from any other person. If they can be great parents who are you to stop them? You would rather kids be in a bad home with a so called "normal" family? The women would still be mommy whether there was one or 2 mothers.

This has to be the most backward, hate mongering thread. I'd likely be saddened to meet the children some of you people have raised....what have you taught them about love, tolerance, acceptance, and giving as you sit here and espouse this hatred?
Its more loving to expose the truth about a matter than to hide it. And we dont have to tolerate or accept everything in this evil world, we dont have to accept or tolerate sodomites and lesbians and their perverted and sordid lifestyles that brings all forms of disease and dred upon us. If you want to tolerate this filth you go right ahead, but dont tell us that we have to, if you want to support and enamble this filth so be it, that makes you no better than the reprobates that engage in this perversion.

I hope you keep your bedroom door closed and locked when you are engaging in sodomy and feces eating and sperm drinking, so they dont have the chance to witness your disgusting acts.

A family of perverted sodomites can hardly be described as normal my dear.

Don't let the institution of marriage be damaged anymore. Stop with the fantasy, it's time to face reality. Two men and two women cannot procreate. Children need true fatherhood and true motherhood to develop properly. Delusional thinking harms society.

1. Procreation does not require marriage and marriage does not require procreation.

2. History has shown that loving caring nurturing parents can turn out mass murderers.

3. Studies have shown that gay parents who are loving and nurturing are just as capable of parenting as straight couples.

4. Studies have shown children raised by gay couples show no effects from their adoptive parents' lifestyle any more than children of straight couples.

5. Equal rights is not delusional thinking.

6. Morals are not one-size-fits-all and should not be imposed on others.

I adopted my son before it was "cool" for gay parents to adopt. He was an at risk child and the sentiment was, what damage could I do. I adopted this child, a product of a straight man and woman, who if they weren't beating hi they were renting to him to their drug dealer for payment. NOT ONE STRAIGHT couple wanted this boy. I was a single, out, gay man and I legally adopted him, with the blessing of DSS, the courts and probably the relief of the foster care system. It was a rough go. A LOT of damage had to be undone. He worked just as hard as I did. And now, I am the proudest Papa AND GRANDPAPA on the planet. He has a good job, a wonderful wife and gave me the most beautiful grandchildren I could ask for. So all you concerned people out there, if you REALLY are that concerned with the kids welfare, step up! Go adopt a child who desperately wants a family to call their own and love them. Or, do what most of you usually do, stand on the sidelines, complain and do absolutely nothing to improve anyone's life, including your own.

Gays should not be raising children but not because of religious beliefs. Evolution has created homosexuals for a reason. They not supposed to have kids sorry that a scientific fact.

1. Procreation requires a male and a female.
2. Parents are a mother and father, which means a male and female.
3. Gay people, don't even know if they are male or female, how does that make them capable?
4. Gay people shove their way of living in everyone's face.
5. Equal rights for what, for being queer. then I want equal rights for marrying the little boy next dooe, or my dog, or my brother.
6. So you're saying you have no morals, good one.

It's against God, and if you have a problem with God, then its against nature. Do you understand?

When my daughter asks me if that is a girl or a boy....that's a problem. If you were born a girl then act like one. Same for a boy. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

And I'm willing to bet that they all call themselves "good Christians."
A good Christian loves the sinner but hates the sin.

Christians believe that homosex is sinful, as it perverts the sexual act away from it's primary purpose: procreation of the species.

Sex is primarily for life. Everything else about sexual acts between consenting adults is secondary to that primary purpose.

Sure it feels good. But the act of sex has be open to life. Otherwise, it perverts sex only for lesser, secondary desires.

This is why many "good Christians" see homosex as well as heterosexual fornication and adultery (the acts themselves) to be sinful. Sin has to be fought against. It's what these people believe.

Love the sinner, hate the sin. Easy to say. Harder to do.
