    Those who dislike a civil right should be first in line to give up that right.
    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." --First Amendment to the United States Constitution

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.

    You post is so full of BS that it is impossible to even start trying to address it. I suspect that your view of what it takes to "be a man" is very limited and based more in myth than reality. I've also been around long enough to recognize that "defective families" come in all shapes and sizes. A penis and a vagina do not make a good home and single parents and gay parents are every bit as good as a straight couple at raising children whether you want to admit it or not. Sorry Charlie.

    Re: Should SSM couples be permitted to adopt children?

    When you adopt you go through various background checks and a home study process when a trained social worker makes several visits to your home to ensure your home is suitable for adopted child, you are suitable parents with the proper life skills, financial means, parenting skills and temperament. Where it is legal for same sex couples to adopt, they are subject to the same background checks and home study that heterosexual couples are subject to.

    What orphan children want is a loving family. That loving family can come in many forms.

    Have you adopted yourself? Do you even have kids? If not, what do you know?

    By whose definition is a same-sex home considered "defective" or broken?! This, may I point out, is your own personal opinion, and a huge majority disagree with you. Some hypocritical ministers preach openly against same-sex relationships, many of our colleagues do the same thing, and some of these two-faced humans end up participating in behind the scenes homosexual activity.

    Mother Nature is distinctively diversified. Our civilization is man-made. We created laws, saying there should be a mother and a father and children, leaving out those who were manifestly different, referring to them as perverse. There are people within our own species who like both sexes and are called bi-sexual. Sometimes when a child is born he might be born with both male and female genitalia. Sometimes a baby is born with a male organ only to be a female emotionally and mentally and vice versa. There exist among us some who are transgender, denoting some whose self-identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender.

    With the right kind of love in a same-sex home or any other where the sexuality may differ, many children may grow up in a healthy atmosphere, respectful of others and not confused as you appear to think, and a far cry better than being in a foster home where many only take in homeless children for the money, lacking the main ingredient, love!

    For too long, some of our brothers and sisters have had to live in the closet, afraid of being discovered as being different. Thanks to the powers that be our species is evolving to the point where a large segment of our society feel they may embrace all Homo sapiens without bias.

    Before casting aspersions upon same-sex homes with children, why not take a long good look at heterosexual homes where sometimes that dark secret of incest sometimes rears its ugly head, or one parent is a drunk and abusive, creating a climate of fear under which the children are forced to grow up. Not everyone who gives birth to biological children make good parents. In fact, some are miserable transferring their neurosis to the child.

    Sure, if they prove to be good parental candidates. Gay couples love their children just as much as hetero couples do.

    Re: Should SSM couples be permitted to adopt children?

    Sounds like a lot of supposition and conjecture to me. Can you provide any significant studies that show that not only is your way objectively right, but it is the only right way? Can you back up that not only do children need a mostly feminine and mostly masculine figure to raise them, but that the feminine and masculine figures have to be exclusively female and male?
