    All of you are dead wrong, obviously uneducated on this issue. Perhaps another where you're more informed and can keep up with my plethora of data.



    Read more: What happens to kids raised by gay parents?
    Your source points out that the research being referenced is not relevant to gay households. Great job using a source which disproves your statements.

    Charles, you are utilizing rather selective evidence.

    In truth, a child usually does best when raised by their biological mother and father. Does this mean a child cannot do just as well with two same sex parents? No. Certain same sex families can raise children just as well. Does this mean opposite sex parents are inherently better equipped to raise children? No. Some opposite sex families are abusive, impoverished, are too young, or may have any number of factors that preclude them from being effective at raising children.

    There are more variables to raising children than simply the sex of the parents. There is no evidence to indicate that a child raised by an opposite sex couple with a high income, no abuse, and an adequate age is at any significant advantage or disadvantage to a child raised by a comparable same sex couple.

    What's with this stuff about child rearing? It has absolutely no relevance to the issue of same sex marriage.

    It's only THE reason the state has any business poking it's nose in your relationships in the first place.

    Frankly I don't understand why childless gays are lining up to surrender their right to privacy to Big-Bro when there is no reason for the state to do so.

    I mean they say it's about rights, but what they're doing is surrendering rights. It makes no sense.

    There are quite a few monetary benefits that are denied to unmarried couples.

    Why do straights deserve extra rights and benefits?

    Surendering rights for money is hardly a wise thing to do.

    They generally raise children.

    There are 1,138 federal rights guaranteed to married opposite sex couple but not to same sex couples that seek marriage. How many rights are same sex couples giving up?

    Who says they get your tax money in the first place? I mean there's a marriage penalty on taxes, so far from getting your money, you might be getting theirs. Even regarding dependent status, that's the couple getting more of their own money back, not getting your money.

    Most of the laws regarding marriage regard property transfer and legal authority and responsibility of said children, so 99% of the time your tax money isn't even an issue at all.

    They get tax breaks which means that check they're getting, is essentially their own money back.
