    Who knows? I'd also like to know why they have a picture of the wrong PaddyManning with the article. The guy in the pic is an Australian journalist. Not gay, not Irish and definitely never wrote an op-ed in the Irish Daily Mirror. The real "gay" Paddy Manning is some Irish libertarian blogger/gay activist and definitely not a columnist.

    We can. However, the nature of the family unit comes from human beings procreating and the social consequences of that. We can intellectualize it all we want but fundamentally, that it what it is. I'm coming from the basic view of nature. A child is created from a mother and a father. I believe we have to come away from that fact to understand the challenges of raising a child under other circumstances. The debate today is to overheated and personal, we should look at it from outside the box and not how it will effect gay people, but children.

    That's brand new to me. I only just encountered it for the first time in that homosexuality/pedophilia thread I started. In a way it's nice in that it provides a clearer sign that the article is bull****.

    Well... bet this thread didn't go as well as Zimmer thought it would.

    I bet he was genuinely excited and thought he'd finally beaten those godless liberals.
    Congrats on the newbie, Jet.

    The argument is bull****.

    I became a father a week and a half ago when my beautiful wife gave birth to a baby boy.

    We're trying our best, but we're by no means perfect parents and from what I've experienced so far, all a child really needs is loving, supporting parents who give a crap about it...

    This world is far from perfect, there's ALOT of bad parents out there and again, good parents are good parents, they'll never be perfect but if those good parents happen to be both of the same sex... so be it.
    Congrats... that is, unless your kid turns out to be gay.

    So is a gay traitor a "gaitor"?

    Yup - this is no better than the "Look - a rich guy wants to raise taxes!" argument. We get it, a guy believes something enough to propose it against his own self interest. That doesn't necessarily lend credence to the argument, it lends credence to him.

    A thousand congratulations. Babies are wonderful .
