"I think that we've proven that both parents are important in the success of a family so, no, I don't believe in gay adoption," McCain said in reply to a reporter's query.
McCain then remarked that he and his wife, Cindy, were proud to be adoptive parents of a daughter born in Bangladesh, and he encouraged others to adopt. Asked if those adopting should be a "traditional couple," McCain answered, "Yes."
The responses were condemned by gay and lesbian groups.
"He's completely out of touch," said Kara Suffredini, public policy director for the Family Equality Council. "There's no reason, except for the sake of red meat for his base, to throw up screens in the way of children in foster care getting homes."

Oh Boy...Touchy subject.
Although I won't force my views onto others, speaking from a personal point of view: I feel that if two people live their lives as responsible people and would love to raise a child and provide for him out of pure love, then why deny that child or that couple the right, just because of differences from the "traditional" outlook and acceptance?

What a colossal clown McCain is. I would rather have a gay as a parnet than a druggie pillhead or an old geezer who seems to have a temper problem. McCain needs to just get with the real world, and the 20th century, and quit being a judgmental buffoon.
