What?

That is absurd.

That system (sorry, I should point out that I am not American), would surely advantage wealthy prospective parents, but not GOOD parents.

Like I said, kids are harassed for all sorts of reasons.

Someone else said that it would be fine but "maybe in 30 years", or so....


And yet, that education has to start somewere, otherwise in 30 yrs we would be no further forward, agreed?

Yes gays would be able to provide materially for a child just like any other parent. But providing for a child is not the only concern here. The emotional well being of the child is what counts. A child raised in a gay household would suffer many emonitional challenges and problems. I view a child raised in a gay environment as a victim of child abuse. And gays should never ever be allowed to adopt any child for any reason. Period

Thank God you're okay.

You had me worried there, that maybe a couple of gay guys beat you up, outside of the Fenways, stole your IP address and were your im-POST-ers. :D
