Supreme Court cases put spotlight on gay parenting

Apr 20, 2013 Full story: The News-Star 28

The White House told the Supreme Court it favored same-sex marriage. So did dozens of big corporations, a host of political and legal heavyweights -- and 9-year-old Austin Covey.

The rabidly religious want to prevent gays from being parents. If any of them spew that bullshit, remind them of Earl "Butch" Kimmerling.

http://articles.latimes.com/2000/apr/09/news/...

Kimmerling is a heterosexual, gay-hating, fundy christard who opposed the adoption of children by gay men. He went so far as to adopt a young girl to prevent a gay man from adopting her.

Within six months of adoption, Kimmerling had sexually molested and raped the girl. So much for "protecting" her.

The assholes who seek to prevent gay people from adoption aren't "trying to prevent abuse". They're trying to (a) make the public hate an easy target and misdirect public attention, and (b) make it easier for themselves to abuse and rape children. If you disagree, look at catholic priests.

Seems to be a discrepancy between the number of participants in the actual study and what the article attached to this thread states. From the article:
Citing data gathered from more than 15,000 Americans aged 18-39, Regnerus concluded...

Yet from this article about the actual study....it says this:
The New Family Structures Study collected data from nearly 3000 adults.

Wonder why those against the right to marry and adopt for Same-Sex Couples needed to lie? My guess is they know they have lost already!!!

Sweetie, your argument might be a wee bit more convincing if you yourself weren't living proof that having heterosexual parents is no guarantee of a positive outcome.

I find it interesting how in the article link to this thread that the religious idiots made a claim to 15,000 participates when the actual study claimed only 3000.......that's a huge discrepancy!!!!

What can you expect now that the study is only supported by two groups of people, those who haven't got a clue and those lying through their teeth?

Here's an interesting development for those lying through their teeth:

The words "republican" and "parents" need to be mutually exclusive.
The words "christian" and "parents" need to be mutually exclusive.

Bigots, racists and pedopphiles like Dumb Donald don't belong anywhere near children, let alone being parents.

Interesting......I know that when one completes their Master Thesis......they need to keep all data and stuff for like a period of 7 years just in case questions arise and they need to prove how they came to their conclusions........and for most who have ever done a study.......it is a long process.......strange that this one was done in such a short period of time!!!

Is your pm situation fixed yet?

I don't think that's true. I have one sister with a masters degree (from C.W. Post), and another sister with a doctorate degree (from NYU), and I know that neither one spent 7 years to earn those degrees.

I didn't say it took 7 years to earn the degree idiot......but one is required to KEEP their data from their thesis or project for 7 years!!!

Reading comprehension just isn't a strong skill for you, is it? If you can't follow the discussion.....maybe you should MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!!

I apologize.

Foxy, you can be such a nice person when you want to be -- which makes me wonder why you sound so angry sometimes? I am angry, yes, but I have reason to be. You on the other hand are surrounded by a jovial community of beer drinkers and jolly Lutherans. What pisses you off?

Well, he was diagnosed 3 years ago with an auto-immune disease of the liver, and has been on 3 daily medications since that time, so I really don't think his health is going to improve. He also has only 3 legs and is 13 years old.

No. He's not that sick. He's actually a fairly active cat. I adopted him in teh year 2000 when he was 5 months old from a nice lady in College Point, Queens. He was missing his left hind leg already. I had it x-rayed and teh vet said that something or someone had ripped his leg off, and he wasn't born like that. His health was excellent until about 3 years ago. Although it didn't cost me anything to adopt him, it cost me about $2000 for the sonogram, and other diagnostic tests when I first discovered his liver problem.

My Samantha died suddenly and unexpectedly this past November.:( But I unexpectedly adopted a cat that looks amazingly like her last month. And his name is "Brooklyn" (I didn't name him), and that's were I was born so that's one of teh reasons I adopted him. He has adapted well to the other 3 cats I care for (Calley, the 3-legged one, Grayson, a BIG long-hiared cat, and Jaime, a small orange cat.)

Yo, gay people should be allowed to be foster parents! These kids need homes, and these people are adults who should have no problem raising kids. They should offer a better child tax credit for adoption, you should get more, no, waay more if you adopt.

Oh no! Not another sick cat for you -- I hope he/she gets better. I may not always agree with you, but we do have a love of cats in common.

" In this debut article of the NFSS, I compare how the young-adult children of a parent who has had a same-sex romantic relationship fare on 40 different social, emotional, and relational outcome variables when compared with six other family-of-origin types."
Directly from the irrelevant link you posted. One family they used in the experiment. One. Looks like you don't have to be religious to be an idiot, just be from northren cali. I've been there, people out there tell you how different its is, "out here its like this" or " people here do this and that". Its the same as everywhere else I've been as far as the citizens go, same douche bags as everywhere else, just with hemp clothes on. I take it back the people who actualy grew up there were the only ones that were ok. Don't go to texas, ever.

exactly! Great post.
You're right as rain and especially with foster children. These loving people want to give these poor kids a home and acceptance, something they are deprived of and need. Something they can get from a ss couple. Rick would call the kid "sweetie", that's nice. He already sounds like a good mom to me, some kid out there would love to have em in their life.
