However, gay adults ADOPT children who have no competent or living parents. They are nurturing and assuring the survival of children who might not otherwise survive. So, what you're saying is, just as barbaric, tribal and feudal cultures would put orphaned children out in the wilderness to die, you'd have those children without obvious biological lineage to suffer not having the benefits of married parents because the compassionate and generous people raising them are gay or not their bio parents? Seriously? Only people with a caveman's mentality would think that way. Instead of the enlightened, more civilized people you disagree with.
