He does think, you should try it sometime. You might become a half way decent person if you did. But I doubt it will happen, after all you are a Christ-insanity-ist.

President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush ..., the former President and first lady showed their support [of gay marriage] by attending a same-sex wedding ceremony recently.

According to ABC News, George and Barbara headed to Maine, where gay marriage has been legal since December 2012, to see two women tie the knot.

Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen, who own HB Provisions, a Kennebunk, Maine, general store, got the former president’s official stamp of approval despite the fact that Bush has not officially declared his position on same sex-marriage.

“This has been a wonderful wedding experience for us and we were honored to have President and Mrs. Bush not only in attendance but also happy to sign our license,” Thorgalsen, who is with her wife on their honeymoon in London, told ABC News.

“As Nancy Sosa, our officiant, said,‘God did not make a love that is wrong.’ If we can make a difference in the world with our wedding and marriage, we are thrilled,” she added.

A Bush spokesperson released the following statement about Mr. and Mrs. Bush’s attendance

“They were private citizens attending a private ceremony for two friends,” said Jim McGrath.

Former President Bush, a Republican, signed Clement and Thorgalsen’s marriage license as a witness. They posted the above photo on Facebook over the weekend.

As long as that drink is Drano, I am all for that. As a believer Shadow can drink a quart of Drano and it "shall not hurt" him [or her, or it].

Of course Shadow knows his God can not be trusted to tell the truth so there is little chance Shadow will ever drink any Drano.

Mark 16:17-18, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lays hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

The Bible tells us how to recognize real and true Christians, I'd have to say that Shadow doesn't qualify, wouldn't you?

I have no idea what the majority view is. I'm just saying that your notion of biological parents always being what's best for children is false. Sometimes adoption is what's best.
There was a time when extended families lived together and children were raised by the whole family. That was much better for them than the nearly-isolated nuclear family of today.
Sure you know that the vast majority of children prefer their birth parents.

I never said that ALL parents are better.

I am saying that statistically, no default parent comes close to natural parents.

I am saying that there is a bond between a birth parent and child that statistically is vastly distinct from any other. Hence the age old adage,'blood is thicker than water'.

However, to justify ss couples, the advantage and bond of natural parents has to be denied to equate ss homes.

Only an depraved idiot would throw children under the bus to justify that.

Why don't you back up this assertion with some statistics? The reality is that you can't, and even if you could, it wouldn't be relevant to the topic at hand.

Good comments.

KiMare will be confused by your comments; statistics, what is that? If his brain farts he believes God is speaking to him in his head and God wouldn't give him these thoughts if they weren't right, correct and unquestionable. But they are questionable as you have demonstrated.

Clearly all normal people must cringe when reading his psycho babble assertions which have no basis in reality. He just makes things up as he goes along pretending his every thought is God inspired. I get so tired of his baseless and wholly unconvincing assertions that I end up stepping over his posts just like I step over dog shit on the sidewalk.

Same Sex couples are uniquely qualified to bond with both their natural children and those they adopt.
Only an depraved Christ-insanity-ist would throw children under the bus to justify depriving children of a loving same sex couple.

Says the biggest idiot in all of Topix.

Among those beliefs crucial to Christianity few are of greater importance than that of the Resurrection. Paul went so far as to allege the very foundation of Christianity rests upon its occurrence.

1Cor. 15:14 "And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain." ( also: 1 Cor. 15:17)

Yet, why should the Resurrection be of such significance? Elijah raised a child from the dead (1 Kings 17:17, 21-22); Samuel said to Saul, "Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me" (1Sam. 28.7, 11, 15); Elisha raised the dead son of a Shunammite ( 2 Kings 4:32, 34-35); a dead man being lowered into a grave revived when he touched the bones of Elisha (2 Kings 13:21); Moses and Elijah revived at the time of the Transfiguration ( Luke 9:28, 30 );the saints arose at the time of Jesus' death ( matt. 27:52-53 ); Jairus' daughter rose from the dead (Matt. 9:18, 23-25 ); the widow at Nain's son rose from the dead (Luke 7:11-15 ); and Lazarus rose from the dead ( John 11:43-44 ). All of these people ascended from death and all did so before Jesus. So why attribute so much importance to the event. By the time Christ rose from the dead this was a rather common occurrance. Moreover, people not only rose from the dead before Jesus but after as well. Peter raised Tabitha and Paul raised Eutychus.

There are 33,820 Christian denominations or similar distinct organizations worldwide, yet we have Jesus words as follows:

John 10:16 And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.

Read it closely.

Yes, adoptive parents invest more.

But they still get less that natural parents in child welfare outcome.
