    Perhaps you lack a basic understanding of statistics.

    Which makes some assumptions that are not necessarily true.

    By the way most couples who find themselves infertile are that way for about two years after the gal stops taking the pill. Folks seem to think fertility can be turned on and off light a light.
    Because in the US the adoption process is full of red tape and many people want infants, not children. There are approximately 143 million orphans world wide and not enough homes to accept them.

    All studies of human behavior make certain assumptions.

    So the problem is with the red tape. That's not a valid reason to give queers priority for adoptions.

    No, the problem in America is partly due to red tape. Which is why it is common for people who really want to adopt to go to another country and adopt a child. Another reason is that many people want infants. Not children, but infants. Particular infants in fact. Those couple together an make adoption a tedious and long waiting process in America (people are waiting for their infants). Meanwhile millions of other children go without adoption. If a same sex couple wanted to adopt such a child, there should be no problem as there are not enough people willing to adopt the 143 MILLION orphans in the world. And no one said "give priority", equal consideration is all they'd get. Nothing more, nothing less. Regardless of one's own personal take on homosexuality, a stable, loving, two parent home be it heterosexual or homosexual is a lot better than the state raising a child till 18. So now if you're done with your selective hearing, perhaps you can consider the full of the problem.

    I've heard that before and supposing it were true, why are gays adopting infants?

    Your powers to ignore valid points are strong indeed. But is there even a point to your comment or are you confused? Because it's really a stupid comment with no application to the post you've quoted which outlined why there is a "line" for some adoptions and listed the total number of orphans which is well larger than the number of people willing to adopt. I don't know if you typed that while drunk, but it's completely nonsensical. Please try again, only this time put a little INT in it.

    Awesome, ad hom. Obviously you can't refute my point.

    You had a point? I don't think so. It was "why are gays adopting infants?". But the point was that there are more orphans in the world than people willing to adopt them. And any stable two parent home, be it heterosexual or homosexual, will do a lot better job raising a child than a state run agency. You don't have a point unless you can show that there are 143 million heterosexual couples out there willing to adopt. Until such time, there's no reason to even entertain the notion of barring same sex couples from adopting as children needs homes and there aren't enough homes to go around.

    Now if you're willing to come up with an actual point instead of what seems to be your sterotypical gay bashing, I'll consider it. But you've had no point yet. Please do not pretend that travesty of a comment you made last was a point. It was not. There was no point in it, it did not address any of the previous points addressed.
