Hey, take it easy there.
The bible is not THAT clear on this subject, there are several interpretations and the one you talk about are lacking if you ask me.

I think most gay parents are smart enough to know they're not going to be able to "train" a kid to be gay, even if they wanted to.
After all, their parents weren't able to "train" them to be straight, were they?
It just doesn't work that way...

Sure it does. Gayness is not an inherited trait. As with any 'behavior,' young children are impressionable.
If people want children they should look to nature. Even if sterile, two Bulls don't raise a calf.
There are more factors in human biology than simple inheritance and "learned behavior." Prenatal environment, nutrition, chemical exposure, all kinds of things. If it's "learned behavior", where is it learned from? The whole society is geared toward raising kids straight.

No Mcory, you're missing my point. I think that gay people can be excellent parents. The problem comes in is when foster kids are raised by gay parents there will be additional problems. Being a foster kid is extremely difficult to start with. Then they go to school and they get called "fag" or other references to their parents, which they probably have an affinity for, are dissed, that's additional stuff they don't need to deal with. It is not the parents, it's the ignorance of kids and you know how cruel kids can be.

i find it pathetic that those pushing the homosexual agenda would want to use already distressed kids as a call for equality.
as a few people have pointed out, haveing "gay" care givers would only increase the amount of abuse that a kid would already recieve for not haveing parrents of their own. these kids already have enough problems without adding homosexual caregivers to that long list. the children MUST be first in the equasion.
some have argued that there are heteralsexual care givers that are abusive. while it is something that needs to be delt with on it's own, why do they insinuate that homosexual care givers would be imune to this type of behaveiour?
that line of reasoning is compleatly empty. there would be the same problems with either homosexuals or heteralsexuals.
what about the natural parrents? will we need to stipulate upon our deaths that our children are not to be put with homosexuals?
even those who have children taken away from them for various reasons should have a say in what type of parrenting their children recieve.
i would think that quite a few would say no to homosexuals raiseing their kids. it would go against some peoples religious beliefs, and their religious views should be taken into acount as well. just as i would suspect that a muslem family would want their kids to stay with fellow followers of their religion.
the "rights" of homosexuals should have no place in this. the children themselves are what is important here, not the "rights" of those apointed to look after them.
if homosexuals realy want to have kids perhaps they should reconsider their lifestile choices. if homosexuals were ment to raise kids they would be able to concieve their own.
why should they raise children and possibly teach these kids homosexuality.
personaly i think it is despicible that homosexuals feel that they should be able to raise these unfortunate kids just because their lifestyle can not create children of their own.
