    Gay Adoption

    http://news.monstersandcritics.com/u...ion_compromise

    This one always draws the homophobes out.

    Do you support the right, assuming that the couple concerned can fit all the other essential adoption criterea, for gay couples to adopt?

    I have no problem with it at all, since the last I looked you cannot 'make' someone gay, nor can you 'catch gay' .... :rolleyes:

    Proof?

    Straight couples have gay kids, there you go!

    All that matters to me is that children are given a loving home, simple as that.

    Your thoughts....?
    "Ethics" is simply a last-gasp attempt by deist conservatives and
    orthodox dogmatics to keep humanity in ignorance and obscurantism,
    through the well tried fermentation of fear, the fear of science and
    new technologies.
    There is nothing glorious about what our ancestors call history,
    it is simply a succession of mistakes, intolerances and violations.

    Re: Gay Adoption

    A child will be teased in school for having gay parents. And thats just the begining. In 30 years it may not matter, but today it gives kids too much to deal with, life is hard enough with out this handicap. I think a single parent is OK as long as they are doing it for the right reasons.

    Yes. Why does there need to be a correlation between being a good parent and being gay?

    Kids are teased for many things at school.

    Do we stand up to that and educate society, or succumb to the bullies..?

    OK. A gay person is as capable of loving and caring and providing for a child as a straight person.

    Won the Kentucky derby and the Preakness. Broke his leg in the Belmont stakes. Would've been a rare triple crown winner. They tried to save him for the last six months or so and finally euthanized him this week. :(

    I agree that gays are as capable as normal people to provide for a child.

    Barbaro was a 3 year old thoroughbred champion horse that was poised to win the Triple Crown before he sustained formidable injuries in the Preakness Stakes. His courage and will to live captured the hearts of horse lovers world-wide.

    His owners decided to do all they could to save their beloved Barbaro, although he would never race again. They would be happy just to have their horse live a quiet life on their farm. There was talk that they wanted to keep him alive for the money he would fetch as a champion blue-booded stud. The truth is, he was worth more money dead than alive since the life insurance on him was in the millions. They simply loved him.

    He underwent more than 2 dozen surgeries in the eight months that he lived after the incredible injury. He was making remarkable progress, although he would always have a limp in his gait. Then life-threatening laminitis set in. He would rebound, but he was never able to recover. The owners and the team of vets always held to the notion that he would not be allowed to suffer. He underwent 2 more surgeries last weekend for the recurring laminitis and the pain and look in his eyes was enough to make the owners and vets through in the towel.

    In his short career, Barbaro won in excess of $2,000,000.00.

    Barbaro was a champion and fighter to the end. His incredible will to live and spirit will always stay with me.

    Re: Gay Adoption

    why would you group gay couples and single people in the same category???

    i wouldnt support gay couples adopting, but i would support a single person adopting if he/she fit the standard adoption requirements...

    I included single people since in the UK, that is part of the legislation.

    So, on what grounds would you be against two educated, intelligent gay men or women adopting?

    Would it be better that the child remained in a 'care' (ho ho ho) home, or, even worst, was adopted by a less loving, less well educated, straight couple?
