Gee, you really don't have a clue. Gay couples certainly do have children and heterosexual children adapt children when they can't 'produce' their own families.
People like you make Jesus the Christ (praise be upon him) cry.
Placing a child in a household with two men as to suggest parenting denies any child the basic human right to be endowed with a female mother for nurturing, commpassion, and bonding, in the childs most indelible years of their lives. I am so sorry your wretched depraved little mind no comprende'.

Two loving parents is better than one loving parent and certainly no loving parents.

Look at how you turned out, bigot.

Men can nurture.

Apparently, not you, eh? Nor your father.

You are wrong, but that's nothing new.
All untitled property of a spouse remains the property of the marriage, even when one spouse dies. i.e. when grandma dies, grampa gets all her stuff (due to the existence of a marriage license); (unless a will is in place that directs specific items to be inherited by the so named pereson).

Gay couples CAN'T produce their own children. You are the one without a clue.

When straight couples adopt it's because they have a medical problem. Why do gay couples adopt? They have no medical problem.

Actually, yes.
The RCC doesn't recognize the validity of Civil Marriage. The distinction is made using the colloquialism: "church marriage".
See: Book IV; Part I; Title VII (Canons 1055 - 1165)

I have never heard anyone that was asked about their marital status reply with "yes, we have a church marriage." It's always just a yes or a no.

Neither can infertile heterosexual couples, yet they are allowed to legally marry. What is your point?

Wondering, you are really out of gas on this topic. It has long since been proven that procreation is neither a prerequisite for, nor a requirement of, legal marriage.

Grow up.

Of course, but that is never the reply when a person is asked if they are married. It has nothing to do with same sex people or single people.

I know one couple who have six kids of "theirs" who have adopted six more, all of them handicapped.

They feel they have a gift to give.

Here's another family who adopt that are perfectly fertile.

22 and Counting

By Susan Horsburgh
Michael and Mary-Jo Jackson Had Seven Kids. Then They Started Adopting. Now, with 15 More at Home, They're Living the Ultimate Supersize Life

All the way back in high school, Mary-Jo Jackson knew what she wanted: kids. Lots of kids. To the point that when boys asked her on dates, she would quiz them about their own interest in having a large family. "And if they weren't interested, I wouldn't even have lunch with them," says Jackson, now 52. "Guys must have thought I was the weirdest kid on the planet."

They should see her now. Since marrying her college sweetheart, Michael Jackson, 32 years ago, Mary-Jo has given birth to seven children—and adopted 13 more. And they're not stopping. The Jacksons, who live in Lancaster, Pa., are currently guardians of two more children they hope to adopt legally—Lucy, an 11-year-old from Kazakhstan who is almost completely deaf and spent two years with a family in Virginia that put her up for adoption again; and Fiona, 2, from South Korea, who is learning to walk on prosthetic limbs after both of her legs had to be amputated because of birth defects. Since taking in their first adopted child in 1994, the couple have made a specialty of welcoming to their nine-bedroom home kids with disabilities or those who are too old for most prospective parents—just the type of child who often languishes in institutions for years.

Even so, the Jacksons say they are often criticized for taking on more than they can handle. "We get that constantly," says Mary-Jo, a stay-at-home mother who has a master's degree in child development. "People always think we do this because we get some kind of state subsidy, like foster care," says Michael, 51, the engineering manager of a pharmaceutical plant who supports the family with his $100,000 salary—and with no help from government or charities. In the past decade, dozens of American foster-care case workers have turned down the couple's requests for children, citing the large size of their biological family, forcing the Jacksons to turn abroad. Indeed, some experts in the field insist that integrating so many kids with so many physical and developmental problems into one giant family is simply not feasible. "I don't know how you dedicate yourself to 15 kids," says Thais Tepper, cofounder of the Parents Network for the Post-Institutionalized Child, a support group for families with children adopted from orphanages and hospitals abroad.

To that, the Jacksons have a ready answer: with patience and understanding. "We have a strong marriage and a strong family," says Mary-Jo, a Rhode Island native who grew up the oldest of four children, "so why wouldn't we take these kids in? It's something we're good at." She and Michael, who decided to start adopting after their two oldest children, Patrick, now 31, and Sara, 28, went to college, have added on to their house four times since then, allowing each child his or her own bed—and one hobby. In all, the kids play 10 sports, eat through $400 worth of groceries a week and, raised as Roman Catholics, last year received 11 holy sacraments, including a marriage, three first communions and three baptisms. Occasionally the older kids are called on to babysit, but Michael and Mary-Jo prefer to do all the bathing, bedtime reading—and, for now, the driving—themselves. "We didn't adopt these kids to be junior parents," says Mary-Jo.

While life chez Jackson is never luxurious—the younger children wear hand-me-downs until the sixth grade and dining out is a twice-a-year treat—their one-of-a-kind household is at least orderly and safe.
