Its not that I think that a gay couple would poison a child mind or anything ike that I just think a child needs both a mother and a father. I dont
believe a woman can fufill the role of father or that a man can fufill the role of mother, no matter how butch or feminine they might be.
I see no reason though why two people who love each other can not be bound in the eyes of the law.
So you would rather see the children grow up in an orphanage than a loving home? How very nice of you. As far as having both a mother and
father.....yes that's probably the best scenerio. But, this world isn't all peaches and cream. You have single mothers, single fathers etc.
Should the children of these people be taken away from them because they don't have a mom and dad? I think not. As far as gay people
adopting.....if I was an orphan, I would much rather grow up in a gay household than in a bigoted one anyday....but that's just me. That was not
directed at anyone.
Caz actually makes very good points. I would like to see this list also, but sadly like I said....I heard it on tv. The number could be 1,100
instead of 11,000......I wasn't paying too much attention when they were talking about it. But anyway 1100 is still a very high number. If I can
get these same benefits at a lawyers office now, how is making it slightly easier with marriage going to affect anything?
People are saying about going to a lawyer and such to get the same benefits? How would you like to have to sit through 1100 documents signing them
all? All straight people have to do is say "I do" and these benefits are automatic......that is the point of this thread.
