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.

I don't care. I believe God does but that's between gays and God, it's not my life or choice to make.

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?
I make $31,000 dollars a year and I have a home.
