    No, I don't. I don't think it would be good or natural for the child to grow up with two dads or two moms since its not the children choice. I know its not the children's choice to grow up with a mom and dad, but thats just the way it has always been. Its not fair for society out of accommodating everyone that we should decide on behalf of unborn children that they can grow up with gay parents. So no. But I would rather see a child with "normal" gay parents, than drug addicted straight people for example, I think they would be better parents, but I don't support it.
    But then again, its not realistic at all to ban all bad parents from having children, but we do not need to add two men, or two women to the parenting list and make it worse.

    Not necessarily. In reality I just and ONLY support the best solutions. But in many cases those just arent possible and viable, so I have to not support worse solutions than those we have.

    Given your previous post I don't think "best solution" is the right description. You seem to be in favor of if because it is the "traditional" solution.

    Unless of course you have evidence that suggests a child raised with heterosexual parents is raised more efficiently then one raised with homosexual parents.

    So far from what I have seen from those that are pro-heterosexual parents is that it is the tradition, thus it must be better.

    I have to agree with Gibberish on this one. You have no actual proof that heterosexual couples are better at raising kids than homosexual couples. CC has given plenty of links that show that homosexual families are just as good as heterosexual families. Even I have given some links that show this.

    This is a great point and I think it's probably the most overlooked fact in the argument. The correct premise is not strait vs gay, it's prospective parents vs foster care. And in that, my personal feeling is the advantages of 'traditional' families loses ground to other concerns. Like the ability to provide food.

    It seems like many people think orphaned or abandoned kids are some kind of scarce resource. They're not, if anybody wants to adopt they should be able to if they pass the background check.

    Straight couples are also bad at raising children, just look at our societies.. But they have been raising them for tens of thousands of years, and at least we manage decent in this day and age, we are still alive.. How about gays? How long have they been raising children, and where is your deep proof that they are raising them well? And I am talking about centuries of proof, since one life is pretty much a century, and anything less than a several generations of gay people raising children is worthless..

    Think of the bad effects that may be visible 1000 years from now if this stupid generation of people will allow gay people to raise children. (what did those morons back then think about when allowing gays to raise children).. We shouldn't make such decisions. Why should gays be allowed to raise children? They cant make children, so they cannot raise children. Unless its lesbians, because one of them could sleep with a man and have a child. Two men cant have a child and shouldn't raise children.

    On average I am certain that its better for the child, in the short term and the long term(his/her life) to be raised by straight people. I am also sure its better for(him/her) to be raised by two parents mom/dad, than just one, or some partial custody stuff.

    CC has provided much of the proof.

    However if you want commonly known historical data of homosexuals raising kids then thats simple. Don't even need to link to any of it as much of it is common knowledge. Romans were known to have gay intercourse...lots of kids were raised by them. Spartans were another.

    However if you want to get into today's recent history. (last 60 years) All I have to do is ask you a logical question which has a logical answer to it. In the last 60 years before homosexuals started coming out of the closet how many of them had families that were literally shocked when the father or mother came out of the closet?

    Homosexuals have been raising kids for longer than you think. And simple logic shows it.

    So we should also ban adoption by infertile couples and outlaw IVF?

    I certainly think strict demands should be made towards straight couples who want to adopt as well? Excluding for example drug addicts.
