    You know, I'm sure they would, at that. And be happy to do so.
    Most gays are pretty open-minded and generous people.
    You're right. Because these guys did take the rejects, the brothers who were being housed by addicts, shit probably caked up inside the younger ones pants for a week, the older one illiterate, unable to interact with anybody but his little brother...

    When I read the intelligent opinions from some of the people on this thread, the ones who keep claiming that the gay couples who want to adopt seem to make the issue about themselves, I shake my head. Its very tiresome to deal with them.

    The thing is, the people here on this thread are the ones making the story about the gay couple, along with the state of Florida. Because the story is about two kids who have been well fostered for 4 years by a couple that now wants to adopt them. But they can't adopt them. Why? Because the state of Florida won't allow it because the foster parents are gay. The state itself has made this a gay issue. This story wouldn't be in the newspaper otherwise.

    Some people don't get it, because they are twisted by their own ignorance and prejudice.

    I have no problem with gay couples adopting because I have yet to see any proof that it negatively affects the child.

    Because the state of Florida won't allow it because the foster parents are gay.

    Look man. The state of Florida is FAMOUS for having a screwed up family court/child protective services/foster care program.

    It affects just about everyone who has to deal with it from what I am told. Gays, straights, whatever. If it comes to making a decision regarding the betterment of a child, you can count on the decision to be a screwed up decision if said decision was made by Florida.

    They are just now finding hidden bodies, in mass graves, from a Florida State School for Boys. Those accused attrocities were a couple of decades ago, but it gives you the idea of where Florida is evolving from. In fact, wasn't there another death in the news, in a florida boy's reformatory, caused by abusive authorities, not too long ago?

    Florida people are wonderful people. But, why their state's departments concerning children, is soooooooo out of whack, I really can't say. It just is.

    Well, in this case also it is a senseless thing. How can the state welcome gay people as foster parents, then at all costs prevent them from adopting the kids the state placed in their care? I understand its a religious thing, and it has to be overcome through the courts. So, I hope the guys fight and win this thing.

    I would substitute gay couples for interracial couples or black couples then may be it might make sense for the people who object.

    Re: Do you object to gay couples adopting?

    I have absolutely no problem with homosexuals adopting kids. Especially in todays age where there are so many children being thrown away to the state. We need loving people to take care of these children and since studies have shown that there is no difference between homosexual and heterosexual rasing of kids I do not object.

    Now to address something that keeps being talked about here in this thread. Kids being mean to kids of homosexuals. Well hate to burst ya all's bubble but kids are means and will find any reason to pick on someone that doesn't fit in thier little world. My folks moved around alot when I was a kid. Do to this I was a loner while growing up. Never wanted to make friends. Unfortenately this made me a target. However just because I was a loner didn't mean that I wouldn't defend myself. It was not uncommon for me to go through a week without having been in at least 1 physical fight. And my folks are heterosexual. So I'm here to tell you that it doesn't matter weather or not a kid is living with heterosexual or homosexual parents. If that kid acts outside the "norm" then they will be picked on.

    Here - let me clue you in. People generally adopt because either a) they are capable of producing children but would rather adopt instead of adding to the population, or b) they cannot produce children because of a physical irregularity.

    Gay couples want to adopt because it is physically impossible for them to produce children.

    Straight forward, no spin.

    If they can't have kids, does the reason really matter?
