3.) Gay adoption - Seriously?
3.) My answer: The world in it's present state is chaotic at best and while I will fully state that I believe that two people of the same sex can
raise a child, love them and be "good" parents, I honestly don't feel like that is healthy for the child, either in the early or the latter years.
The cold, hard fact of the matter is, the coupling of two people of the same sex is not natural and children should not be subjected too it, that is
why men can not have children with men and women can not conceive with a women. A little thing called "propagation of the species" defines this
point of view. We can't very well let our children be pre disposed to a lifestyle while they are impressionable that is not "normal" and by normal
I mean it in the sense of propagation of the species, that is not the way and is not in the best interests of our children.
As a lesbian, and a parent of two, I take offense to this. First and foremost, there are WAY too many children "in the system" right now to justify
not qualifying gays as parents simply because of their sexual orientation. Children of all ages are being thrown in to a "system" that they don't
understand and for reasons that are beyond their control. Their heterosexual parents couldn't take care of them or abused them and they had to be
removed from their home.
Let's just take a look at the heterosexual side of this issue.
Scenario 1 - A couple makes a child and lets say husband "Joe" gets off on beating the child. Mother "Jane" doesn't do anything to stop the abuse
and, in fact, turns a blind eye to it. The child is (hopefully) removed from that home and placed in "the system". Abused by their wonderful
heterosexual parents.... NICE.
Scenario 2 - mother "Jane" is addicted to illegal drugs. She's strung out, has no job and no way to care for her children. She couldn't care less
if they have food, shelter or clothing and only cares about feeding her drug habit. The father doesn't want anything to do with her, or the kids.
These children are hopefully removed and placed in "the system". Lack of compassion, caring or simple civility keeps this mother from seeing that
her children's most basic needs are met.
Scenario 3 - mother "Jane" gets pregnant by daddy "Joe" and neither of them wants a child. She opts out of an abortion but decided to give her
child away. The child may, or may not, be privately adopted but either way, it goes in to "the system". Lack of birth control forces this child out
of their home.
So all of these stem form the abuse of procreation by heterosexuals, as well as selfishness, addiction and anger. I adopted my children from scenario
2. Their biological mother is strung out on meth and to this day is still wandering the streets of Phoenix. I know this because I have seen her
several times. In this woman's case, she lost every single child she ever had, which was a total of five.
As a parent, it's my responsibility to make sure my children have what they need and they do. It's my job to make sure they grow up to be happy,
healthy and wise adults. Both of my kids are doing great in school (excelling in fact!), both are healthy and participate in sports, and both are
We have conversations with them about the gay and lesbian lifestyle and our oldest wants to protest us not being allowed to get married. Our children
are growing up in a home which has seen, tolerated and over come many adversities. We are raising them to be strong, independent women and they are
taking the ball and just running with it.
Our children were the product of heterosexuals acting selfishly and irresponsibly. If God can't see that us giving them a good home and a wonderful
life isn't a good thing then he must be on CRACK. For those of you out there that don't see the good in this then you should volunteer some time
with children in "the system"; it will open your now closed eyes.
