    Yes, just because they are the same sex, doesnt meant they cant be great parents.

    Whether I am or not, I would prefer to be in agreement with you on this.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Absolutely.

    All other things being equal, in my opinion:

    No Parent < Single Parent < SSM Couple < Man/Woman Couple

    There are far more children needing adopting in this world then there are loving couples actively looking to adopt. It is far superior imho for a child to be raised with two same sex parents then to be raised in an orphanage without any acutal parent.

    Some say that depriving a child of a mother AND father is somehow indefensible....I'd say that depriving them of a mother OR father by demanding they remain in an orphanage as opposed to go to a loving couple that doesn't have one of each is also indefensible. The question isn't "SSM or Traditional couple", the reality is that quite often the question for a particular child may be SSM Couple or no adoption. If your answer in such situations is "no adoption" or "wait and hope that maybe sometime something will change for the kid", then it is you who are depriving them of that mother or father.

    I completely and utterly support SSM Couples adopting.

    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
    Seeing as other countries permit SSM couples to adopt, have you any data from those countries?
