    A good point. There is an inherent sampling error often built in.

    But this gets back to my point, that adoption is a judicial process that involves a particular child and particular prospective parents and the point of the proceeding is to determine what is in the best interest of that child in this particular case.

    Therefore, Scalia's question totally misses the context of how adoptions happen -- they don't occur in the aggregate, but via a process where the inquiry is directed at determining the best interests of the child.

    There is no such thing as 'gay rights'. It's called 'human rights', and it's about equality. I have never seen an argument against such equality that doesn't come from ignorance and/or religious beliefs, or just pure nonsense. As far as I am concerned, those standing against such equality have just as moronic of a stance as those that protested against interracial marriage long ago.

    Of course you are. Your belief otherwise is a reflection on your lack of understanding of this issue. I'm always amazed that people don't, but I assume that it tends to be a choice.

    My understanding of human nature is that logic has little to do with human nature. Otherwise the term human nature would not exist as all human activity would be logical. Maybe you can start a campaign to wipe it out.

I no longer have any interest in what these people have to say. As far as I'm concerned they will get what they deserve. I'm just out to make sure I don't get pulled down with them. "Change" is not always good even if it feels good today. But hey, you guys will figure that out. Find funding for a few more "unbiased" studies (oddly enough performed by those with an agenda and expected outcome), whatever makes you feel all intellectual and superior for now. When that falls apart for you, don't come knocking.
    I thought the last post was full of ignorance, but this one tops it. Good job.

    Your understanding of human nature, based on the posts in this thread, seems to be lacking. You might want to do something about that.

    So religious rights enumerated in the Constitution don't matter to you. Well gay rights don't matter to a lot of other people. All that oppression crap is largely nonsense. It is a political issue not a "human rights" issue no matter how badly you want it to be otherwise. I suspect soon enough the SCOTUS will let you know that.
