It has nothing to do with "contagion" or "pedophiles". I think every child needs a parent of both genders for healthy psycholgical development.
I know this is slightly off topic, but what about being raised by a single parent? I had no father figure in my life up until I was 21 years old. I don't think i had an unhealthy psycholigical developement at all. Obv its more desirable to have a mother and father figure, but to say you think every child needs that for a healthy psychological developement seems a little narrow minded. However, I do realise thats your opinion, I just wanted to know your thoughts on single parent situations.

I think gay people are behaving in an incredibly selfish manner in wanting to raise an infant. It is treating kids like a car or a house. I want it "just because", and "just because" I want it, I should be allowed to have it. You have to think of the child's well being above all else, and put your own selfish desires under wraps. It's too important a responsibility to be undertaken for personal aggrandizement.
no more selfish than a straight couple wanting to have a baby, or one of those weirdo couples in Arkansas that have 18 kids in 18 years and name them all something starting with the letter K

Gay couples adopting isn't a static issue.Kids are mean in school, putting a generation or two in a condition of constant teasing shows that the gay adopt thing is a selfish thing.As far as the marraige thing, it's the word marriage. Again, the gays don't want what's best, they want what they want.I'm not allowed to marry another man, why should they be allowed too? They want extra rights because of how they perform the sex act.Don't forget less than 40 years ago being gay was classified as a mental disorder caused by a dominating mother and an absent or wimpy father figure. Now of course it's caused by voting democrat too often
I know making mostly unfunny jokes in a political thread and having Nutz follow up with a slurp and burp is kind of your thing, but I don't get any of this, regarding humor or merit.Kids are mean regardless. That doesn't factor in. So fat kids should be killed too? Because they receive the worst of it in school.Marriage means marriage? What does that even mean? They don't want extra rights, just the same as you to marry the person they are choosing to spend the rest of their life with. If you wanted to marry a dude, you'd be allowed. It's a civil union, not some fantasy world of god blessing your marriage. God is your thing, not eveyone's thing. Keep it that way.Who cares about 40 years ago and gays being considered mentally disabled? 40 years ago blacks were hung from trees and shot in public and the guilty parties were acquitted in court by a jury of white peers. 40 years ago's ignorance has nothing to do with today. (and yes, I read some civil rights stuff recently about a young black man in GA shot for using a white's only water fountain at some guys gas station. Gas station owner came out and shot the kid dead and was acquitted by an all white jury. Not to even mention the numerous pictures of lynchings and people, men, women and children standing around bodies swinging from trees, posing for pictures. So please, spare me the "40 years ago" defense)Now I think this is the part where you come back in and make a two word quip and I get faced.

The best option for a child's healthy development is a responsible man married to a responsible woman with a stable household.
and how often does that actually happen in the real world anymore? Not very often. Times have changed. This isn't Leave it to Beaver or Father Knows Best anymore. It's a real world with divorced parents, step-dads, etc. There is no regular family life anymore. Normal is what's normal and works for you. I wish people would stop clinging to the past and evolve with the times, and by people, I mean republicans. (that last part was a joke, basically)Now get back on topic people: GAY MARRIAGE, WHY ARE YOU AGAINST IT?

Because it goes deeper than gays getting married. If we legalize gay marriage, that opens the door for other people preaching their practices should also be legal. Do you believe polygamy should be legalized? If members of the same sex can now get married, why can't men have multiple wives? Is raising children in a homosexual environment better than raising them in a polygamist environment? So, we allow gay marriages, next we allow polygamy, what are going to allow next? Marriage between a man and a horse?

It should be allowed. Anyone against it is a fckn *******Gay people should be allowed to adopt. Pleny of hetero couple have babies because they "want" a child and tons more have accidental babies or just keep procreating even though they shouldn'tGay people shouldn't have to suffer from the prejudices of those who don't agree with their lifestyleGay people are human. Love is human. Plenty of heteros screw around like dogs in heat and are complete sluts, so the promiscuity issue is rendered null and voidMany Creationists are against gays. This alone is worth supporting gay rightslol @ the dogfckng discussion. It's like saying marijuana use automatically leads to herion addiction

Having sex with animals was somewhat of a joke. And please elaborate how nothing is wrong with polygamy in theory.

Polygamy is good because you can have sex while your other wife tidies up while your other other wife makes dinner. Awesome!

Well, if a man has three wives, and he loves them, and cares for all his children, and none of the wives were forced to marry him at 15 or raped by some old "prophet" then I dont see the harm. If they all enter into it willingly, then why do I care? But in practice there seem to be far to many abuses. But it being illegal doesnt seem to stop it.edit: I should confess that pretty much everything i know about polygamy i learned from "Big Love". I guess I just dont see anything wrong with the "idea" of having more than one wife.

I've said this before in other threads. The whole heart of this problem is that the federal government is in the social engineering business at all. Your living situation is not the business of the government. The reason they've made it so is because of all the social engineering and intrusive tax laws. Get rid of the broken policy, and the govt has no reason to be involved in people's social lives.

I think if it were legalized many more men would jump on the bandwagon. Right now polygamy is tied to religion, but if the state stepped it'd become more mainstream.I guess I can't get past the belief that you can really only have "one love" in your life. You dedicate your life to one person and one person only. Having multiple relationships with different women at the same time, in my opinion, would destroy "love", becuase I just don't see how it's possible to love 6 women the same amount. Those men love their vagina, not the person.

Maybe. But who are we to tell those people how to live. I doubt I would take multiple wives, hell I'll be lucky to find one women who can stand me. But what is right for me isnt rihgt for everyone. Im just totally unconcerned with what people do, so long as they arent hurting people.

See I'd have 5 wives. and I'd live on a farm and rotate them throughout the day. There'd be stations, and each wife would be assigned a station for a particular day. The first station is to have sex with me. The next is to make food for me and the others. The next would be toiling in the fields. Then there would be laundry, and ironing. And of course, the last one would have to tend to the youngins.Then at night we all sleep in the same bed and have a big orgy.
