Gays (singles and married) shouldn't have to use their incomes taxes to undeserving(heterosexual) familes.

Gay or lesbian parents are no different than any other parents,in my opinion. The
Italian Prime Minister makes less sense than "tits-on-a-bull." Of course,what else is new?

Gay couples shouldn't marry or adopt? Well, certain priests shouldn't be having sex with little kids!!

Once again, the RCC is concentrating on the WRONG problems - deflecting much?

But there are many heteros who can't have kids either. Not arguing, just pointing that out.

David, put away the vibrating appliance and give it up.

Lying just makes you look silly, as always. At least stick to the truth.

Gay people are not sterile, and can certainly have kids. We also tend to raise wonderful kids that we did not give birth to.

If you are trying to say that no couple without genetically related children should ever be allowed to marry, you would also have to apply that to every straight couple as well, or be a hypocrite.

The elderly will not be able to marry or re-marry.

No infertile couples can ever marry.

No blended families if there are already children present, since that would mean that one of the married folks is not related to the child.

Of course, we would need to ban all couples who adopt, since there is a child in the house not genetically related to both parents.

WOW! Not many left to marry! How are you going to enforce all of these new marriage restrictions? Do you think straight couples will fight you tooth and nail?

Why would a child tell their parents that they are not their parents? And why would a parents lie about being a parent, if they are a parent?

You seem a little confused.

And yet we do have kids all the time; we just have to be a bit more creative about it.

Unlike you, kids aren't confused at all. My daughter has no problem understanding that she had 2 dads.

Really? I know many men and women who HAD kids and are now proud parents, or happy grandparents. One older gent I know is a GREAT grandfather. Some were married, some used artificial insemination. Whatever, they have kids.

"YOU'RE not my mommy"...not "YOUR not my mommy"

Why do you haters, to the last one of you, CONSTANTLY make that same STUPID IGNORANT error? What is it that you all possess, or lack, that makes you INCAPABLE of getting one of the easiest pieces of grammar correct?

Was it lack of good education? Inborn stupidity, or just plain laziness that you can't get a concept that a smart 3rd grader would be able to scoff at you?

Wow. The first thing you think of when you hear of a married couple is their child watching them have sex?

That's pretty sad. You must have had a tough childhood. I'm sorry for you.
