Children are not pets. I don't care what the selfish desires of adults are. Children are not pets; they deserve to have a childhood that generations have experienced, not the selfish wims of adults.

Hey Don, you don't question het couples on THEIR motives to have children, do you? All you have to do is look at the stats on CPS and how overwhelmed they are EVERYWHERE in this country. The caseloads for at risk children is huge and horrendous. Stigma against people who DON'T add to that burden is stupid, let alone non productive. Selfish, are people who can't afford and don't WANT their children, but have them anyway. David 3036 is absolutely right. And I personally know such families and can attest that they ARE alright. Better than alright, in fact. A planned child, a child compassionately taken in, is a blessed one.

Actually, many of the gay couples I know who are raising children are quite selfless. They have been willing to raise the kids that nobody else wants -- the AIDS babies, the crack babies, the mixed-race kids that are rejected in their home countries.

And they do a wonderful job raising them. There are no unwanted kids or accidents of conception gay parenting -- they only have children because they WANT them, unlike many straight couples and young single mothers.

I have never heard any gay male say that, and I doubt that you have either. I would completely surprised if you even KNEW any gay parents.

Did they give "their" babies AIDS and crack?

So what, Kev? That doesn't mean you know any gay people with the trust, and qualities of experience and companionship that would make anything you say about them credible. The staunchest racists that didn't support integration spoke with great sophistry as if more knowledgeable and informed about black people, even than blacks themselves. That's how YOU behave Kev. Like those types of racists. You'll never get the truth about Jews, from a non Jewish anti Semite. See?

The current controversy concerning marriage may be one of the biggest distractions in this election season. It is often categorized as a divisive “social issue.” Many Americans realize that the definition of marriage, the controversy about abortion, and America’s support of Israel are huge spiritual and moral issues which will determine the kind of America we will create for the generations that follow us.

Same-sex marriage advocates love to talk about the freedom to love and their own interpretation of “rights.” The truth is that none of us need a...
