    Kindly, no. Children deserve the chance to have both a father and a mother.

    I feel that every child needs a mother and a father.

    Children need both a mother and a father, each of whom contribute important influences on them that are distinct and God-given.

    Children deserve two loving parents that can provide the best possible enviornment for a healthy, well rounded upbringing. There is no substitute for a Mother and Father in this position.

    Give children a fighting chance to suceed. They need an engaged father and mother living together in a family.

    No, not in my opinion. A child has enough to cope with in modern society without adding to their already considerable burden. By that I mean children raised in a non-nuclear traditional family are disadvantaged further. In gay partnerships the confusion of genders and messages can only detract from the first goal of child rearing, which is to benefit the child as much as possible, with the best possible means and the best possible models.

    No matter what study you read, the gay population of the United States is at most 6% and is very likely far less. We seem to be making an inordinate effort to accommodate a demographic that as little as 30 years ago was not considered a minority but a depravity. The gay community calls this progress but a large number of people in this country call it moral decay. A half century or social science indicates that as a whole society is in decline.

    Adoption is the only way a gay couple can “procreate” besides in-vitro or surrogacy. The militant gay agenda is to expand that lifestyle to it’s furthest possible diffusion believing that doing so legitimizes homosexuality even further.

    The statistical facts do not indicate that gay partnerships are a stable and nurturing environment for child rearing. The argument for gay marriage contends to a degree that this situation will change if gays are allowed to marry. However, in states where gay partnerships are recognized in all but the name “marriage” no such phenomenon has manifested.

    The good of the child must be paramount. Children are not stuffed toys that talk and make messes. It is becoming increasingly difficult in this society to raise a child to be a good citizen and parent in his turn.

    We need to give the children of today every possible opportunity to experience a good and productive life. Allowing gay adoption does not add to that.

    Poor Lopez, you can’t even find the Caps Lock key (it’s on the left right above the Shift key) so what makes you think you can get a diaper the right side out?

    Gay men are the worst for substance abuse, including alcohol:

    Only 4 percent of gay “relationships” last the 16 to 19 years required to raise a child. That’s the equivalent of a 96% divorce rate. Only 4.5 percent of gay couples report that they’re practicing sexual fidelity so that means that 95.4% are cheating in their relationship:

    One in 5 gay men are currently HIV positive and of those 50% don’t even know it.

    It looks to me like “sexual orientation” has a LOT to do with “providing a future, love, care and attention to a child”. As if kids didn’t have enough working against them already it would be sheer foolishness to add having gay parents to the burden on them. Gay parents that separate, cheat, abuse chemical substances, carry lethal diseases, on and on. No matter how you slice and dice it, gay relationships are much worse in all categories than heterosexual marriages.
