    Your opinion is noted and laughed at. A loving home is better regardless of the gender of the parents.

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand announced a bill Sunday that would remove legal barriers to adoption by lesbian, gay and transgender parents. Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said she will introduce legislation this week that would prohibit discrimination against adoptive parents. The Every Child Deserves a Family Act would prohibit any entity that receives federal funds from discriminating against adoptive or foster parents based on sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status.
    Since no one chose to answer my question, I'll ask you directly:

    What federal laws are currently impeding LGBT adoption?

    Why would you explain it? Its nobody else's business and nobody would know just out of the blue

    While I am fine with reducing legal barriers to the above adopting children - I am against the government forcing people to not discriminate. I have said time and time again, people should be free to be as pathetically discriminatory (on ANYTHING) as they want to be. And if some adoption agency does not want to give children to gays/lesbians - that should be their choice.

    I am sick and tired of governments forcing people to act as the state wishes (outside of violence/threads/stealing/etc.). People should be free to be prejudiced if they want to be - even if it goes against 99.9999% of the rest of the nations population's wishes/beliefs.

    What is the point of freedom of expression if you are not allowed freedom to express your opinion - no matter how distasteful it may be?

    One can support this move and at the same time wonder why pandering to a certain segment of the population is good government policy. I'd simply say, why not pass legislation that makes every legal age adult with the financial means and social maturity eligible to adopt a child in need of a home?
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Given that I believe M/M and W/W is sinful.....you tell me.
