    Re: Do you object to gay couples adopting?

    I fully support the right of same sex couples to adopt. I voted the wrong way in the poll because I answered the thread topic's question instead of the poll's question.

    Re: Do you object to gay couples adopting?

    Since being gay is genetic thing rather than learned behavior. It does not matter.

    I met a gay man and his pardner who were raising a son, and the son came out a perfect Hetero.

    some people are gonna be gay no matter what. Some people will be hetero no matter the parents are.

    I think there is to much time spent on something which only genetics control.

    People can be as gay as they want as long as they don't do it in my bedroom.

    Re: Do you object to gay couples adopting?

    I fully suport gay couples adopting.

    I fully suport brothers and sisters adopting together.

    I fully suport fathers adopting with adult doughters, and mothers adopting with adult sons.

    Any of these couples could rais well balanced children just as well as any unrelated heterosexual oposit-sex married couple.

    I support people comming together to help children in need, but that doesn't mean I support those couples getting married.

    No, I do not object to gay couples adopting. In fact, I'm all for it.

    Lesbian parents vs. heterosexual parents. No differences except that the lesbian parents exhibited more parenting awareness.

    That's SEVEN.

    Gay male couples vs. heterosexual couples. The gay couples were happier and more equitable in their parenting tasks. Other than that, no significant differences.

    That's EIGHT.

    The impact on the children of gay fathers based on 4 concerns. No negative impact.

    That's NINE.

    Children's sexual identity when reared by lesbian mothers vs, heterosexual mothers was explored. No difference in boys; few in girls. Mostly, both groups were similar.

    That's TEN.

    Children in lesbian households vs. those in single-parent heterosexual households on sexual identity. No significant difference. In fact, no difference on any emotional/behavioral scale.

    That's ELEVEN.

    Had enough, yet? No? OK.

    Children of lesbian mothers vs. heterosexual mothers in regards to developmental, intellectual, and emotional functioning. No significant difference.

    That's TWELVE.

    Now, admittedly, I composed this post nearly a year ago. There may be more studies released since then. I suppose if need be, I could go look, but I believe both the studies I have posted and the links provide enough information to both support my position and give y'all information to read.
    Yea im still not really happy with any of these studies i wanted something more like liklihood of children commiting suicide or bullying of children with same sex parents.

    Gay people shouldn't have pets.

    They can have gerbils and large dogs, but that's it.

    State once turned to capable father figure, now fights him as Dad -- OrlandoSentinel.com
    I'll accept the story of the link, but one story doesn't make a point. There are examples of a very young sibling raising young children, certainly examples of polygamists successfully raising children etc. Do you support 13 year-old and polygamists adopting if I can point to examples of those doing good foster or adoptive parenting?

    Your calling my post "angry, hateful, prejudiced, and paranoid" is exactly a prime example of why I don't want the selection of foster or adoptive parents to put children into the middle of the rabid, screaming gay rights movement. The only message on this thread that appears "angry and hateful" is your response to my message. It was impossible for you to make a disagreeing message without an intense personal attack against me for pointing out the obvious flaws in the story you had posted. While "angry" is arguable, there was nothing hateful, prejudiced or paranoid about my message.
