From the article:

"Studies using probability samples show poor outcomes for gay parents.

Two recent studies that did use probability samples showed some poor outcomes for children of gays and lesbians."

Nope, what the study fails to show is that parents in general suck.

The fact that anyone is crazy enough to ruin their lives by trying to raise an ungrateful little twerp is enough to show that the experiment failed before it even got started.

Just like driving a car, folks think they will be great parents.

Well, NEWS FLASH! You will be terrible at it.

Kids suck the soul right out of you, tell you to kiss their butts and then turn around and ask for more support because they cannot make it on theory own.

You cannot force children to grow up to be productive citizens,

Very few really turn out OK.

Look at the world around you.

It is falling apart. The human experiment failed.

Time to bail and stop breeding.

Please, everyone stop breeding.

Where are the children's REAL parents?

If the kid's REAL parents weren't such losers; GAYS wouldn't be raising their kids

Fuss at them; not us

Ah, the Free Republic, a site that actually makes this one look like a bastion for intellectual discussion and civil discourse. You really should check out the rest of the article that didn't survive the bad edit.The Christian Post, in complete disregard to the commandment against the bearing of false witness, actually goes on to say that one of the studies that they say refutes this one, is the now completely discredited Regnerus snow-job and a second one, that was based on a statistical group that wasn't entirely made up of children with two gay parents (or any for that matter) and they lied that they were.

Multiple studies show that domestic abuse is significantly higher in same-sex relationships as well as substance abuse. I hardly see how that equals "better" circumstances for raising children.

Obviously the hetero parents that threw their unwanted children into the dumpster were not so hot

So its GAYS to the rescue!

Say 'THANK YOU GAYS for adopting our discarded rug rats and putting them through college'

Multiple studies, done in the years prior to legal same sex relationships, have shown that there was a greater risk of abuse occurring in same sex than in heterosexual relationships. Much like there are even more studies which show that more abuse occurs in unmarried than married opposite sex couples.

Reality, not all same sex relationships, married or not, will be a good place for children; you know, a lot like, not all opposite sex relationships, married or not, are a place where any child should be. The advantage to a same sex relationship is that we can't accident them into our bad environment like y'all do on a regular basis.

Didn't Jerry Sandusky teach you fools anything? Straight men can and do molest little boys and there are a hell of a lot more of them who do than gay men. You really don't give a f*ck that you are sacrificing the lives of countless boys to your willful ignorance and blind hate, do you?

Nope, you just adopt them into it. Speaking of which, I noticed that Paula Poundstone is performing in Knoxville soon. She's the unfunny failed comedian from the 80's who decided to adopt kids and was charged with lewd acts on a child & child endangerment (from driving drunk with kids in the car).

True. Read a story that 35 Disney World employees were arrested for just that. Some say most of them were gay. I've been there more than once and gay employees are everywhere so it's believable to me.

Don't you think it odd that the article you used as support makes no mention whatsoever of the sexual orientation of ANY of those in the story? Who's the "some say"? You? Ignorance ain't bliss sweetie, in this case it is dangerous.

The best you can do is an example from more than a decade ago? That should tell you something.

That's a hard question. So many possibilities.
Some were killed in the middle east.
Some were killed in car accidents.
Some died of natural causes.
Some were lesbian prostitutes that sold their bodies for drug money.

Actually, NO peer reviewed and accepted study shows poor outcomes. And, really, no one is trying to argue we are better parents. We are as good and as bad as everyone else at raising kids.

The only important thing for you to understand is that one's sexual orientation has NO bearing on our success at parenting. Our love, commitment, and involvement do.

Nope.

So, the people raising orphans aren't REAL parents?

Can you point us to the proof to back that claim up - in civil law, in the beliefs of religious communities, and through any sort of psychological or medical documentation?

Thanks.

Provide links to the proof that gay adoptive parents are more likely to engage in domestic abuse or drug use that straight adoptive parents.

Like I said before, when you start off with that "so" nonsense, I know your reply will be pure and unrelated garbage.

You made the claim, SFB, you can't back it up or not.
