    thats correct, but equality under law falls on government shoulders.

The whole LGBQbpWTF movement is based on denying this hard reality, to the great detriment of society as a whole.

    I know how to be a man, because I had a father to show me how. I know how to treat my wife, because my father showed me, in how he treated my mother. I knew what to look for in a wife, and I know what to expect of my wife, because my mother showed me by her example.

    You cannot get this from a broken, defective family, with only one parent, or with two “parents” that are the same sex. By divine design, it takes a man and a woman—a mother and a father—to create a child, and it also takes a father and a mother to properly raise a child.

    Long before any of us lived, Mankind correctly recognized the tragic consequences of children growing up in “broken homes”, and that was with homes not nearly so broken and depraved as what our society is now trying to create and uphold.
    From what you have consistently posted on this forum, you know little about what is decent in a father figure or what to look for in a wife/mother that is not rigidly locked in Old Testament dogma...and not anything in keeping with the Constitution or today's decent, modern families with good loving parenting.

    The fact that many loving and good parents come from backgrounds like I bolded clearly proves you wrong.

    Proven that children from single parent families are more likely to end up with problems
    And the ones raised in foster homes or state facilities, shuffled around, do so much better /sarcasm

    Are gay men or women more predisposed to abuse infants than straight men or women? Or more predisposed to abuse children? Please provide sources.

    The summary is from a right wing publication and may be biased in presentation, but hey it's free. the linked university study is peer reviewed and very comprehensive, but you have to pay a few bucks I believe
    You realize you are citing a study that had a severely anorexic giant and a convicted one year old baby, right? In other words, it has been peer reviewed and found to have fake data, which when removed changes the conclusions drawn from the data. A quick Google search would have shown you that much.

    Yes - Why
    No - Why
    Not Sure - Why
    why not they already raise kids so if hetero couples can they should be able to do so as well

It is just ironic that you would list this in a sad attempt to try to make your point.
    Epic fail! Try again. Find a study that isn't from a group with a right-wing social agenda. Let me save you the trouble - you can't.
    The study was done by the University of Texas.

    The family research council just summarized it in case you don't want to pay to read the university study

    No. The "study" was done by a sociologist at the U of Texas, with a strong anti-gay bias and funding from anti-gay organizations, along with peer review done by people who, at least half, were professed anti-gay "peers". U of Texas has already disavowed all claim to the study. There have been plenty of people to discredit the study, including pretty much every professional medical and mental health organization in North America and Europe.
