They like big government, the kind that gets into your bedroom and gets into our womenís reproductive systems and tells you what you can and cannot do.<quoted text>
God and nature gave every child a mother and a father. No disagreement there...
However, the imperfection of mankind leaves millions of kids without either a mother or a father in many situations.
There are deadbeat fathers and mothers who have nothing to do with their offspring. Sometimes death takes away a parent. Sometimes drugs or alcohol takes away a parent. Sometimes a violent or neglectful parent weakens the ties between a child and his/her parent.
Your "ideal" family is rare. And when it isn't present, somehow, very likely through the grace of God, the kid can persevere. He or she can still manage to be raised to become a happy, fully functioning adult.
And that's where your argument against same-sex parents falls apart. You repeatedly claim that children from same-sex parents are "deprived" and that it will have an everlasting impact on their lives.
But in an imperfect world, sometimes a same-sex parent situation is better than a "no parent situation".
As I have repeatedly argued, it is the skills of the parent that matter most. It is the love and support given to a child that trumps the gender make-up of a the parents; especially in situations where a child has been abandoned or is being mistreated by his or her biological parents.
Finally, to answer your last question; no, you do not have to shoot yourself to know that it is harmful. All you have to do is look around you and know that a gunshot wound to the head is deadly.
But when it comes to anal sex, you should also look around. You should be smart enough to know that millions of people engage in anal sex each day, and yet they manage to live a full and happy life. It doesn't demean them. It doesn't injure them. Men and women engage in it exclusively throughout their entire lives without harm.
But if you, personally, don't want to engage in it, that's fine. Otherwise, it's none of your business.
That's your problem... You're always sticking your nose where it doesn't belong. You want to stop same-sex couples or gay individuals from being able to raise kids. And you want to stop people from being able to engage in a type of sexual activity that has been practiced by both genders for eons.
These things that other adults do are simply none of you business. Just walk on by. Let others live their lives the way they see fit.
They want to tell everyone else what they can and cannot do.
Anal Sex is like spinach
A lot of people enjoy spinach
But if someone is forced to have it when they are young, they have a more difficult time enjoying it when they are older.:P
