    I could find a thousand instances of that.

    I bet there aren't very many news stories about abusive gay couples.

    This thread is just as useless as the other. This world is fallen indeed.

    Being straight or not doesn't make a good parent, so I have no idea what this is suppose to prove.:confused: :confused:

  6. You are right - the thread is as useless as the "Check out the Gay Adoption" thread.

    I have proven my point. :cool:

    I think the purpose of this thread is to show the pointlessness of the previous thread about a lesbian couple found to have abused a boy who was not legally their son but whom they had taken custody over.

    Just as stories about heterosexual couples abusing children are not evidence that heterosexuals are unfit to raise children, a story about a lesbian couple abusing a child is not evidence that lesbians are unfit to raise children. All these stories tell us is that there are tragic examples of child abuse in the world.

    I am not sure what this is supposed to mean in this context. I think the point of the OP here is that it is senseless to suggest that all gay parents are bad parents by pointing to one example of bad parenting and generalizing from this. The OP tried to suggest this by showing the silliness of doing this with examples of bad parenting by heterosexual parents and generalizing from that to all parents. The OP's point was not to suggest that all heterosexuals are bad parents; just the opposite. The point was to demonstrate the absurdity of generalizing to a whole group of people from one or two or a handful of examples of bad parenting.

    Dear Ohioprof,
    It means two parents of the same sex is wrong and so the abuse of the examples given of man/woman parents… based on the Bibilcal Christian understanding. The OP may have a different worldview on which to assess, for example physical hurt is not necesarily caused by same-sex parents unlike in the examples given.

    The OP this thread responds to was based on a story about the physical abuse of a child by a lesbian couple, and concluded with the question "How does someone like this get to adopt a child"?

    What is the point of posting such an OP in the "Debates on Homosexuality" section, unless the poster was somehow linking the child's horrific neglect and physical abuse to the homosexuality of his caretakers?

    So why aren’t you confronting the wrongness of the “Check out the Gay Adoption Thread”?

    Two parents of the same sex is certainly not wrong, and it's never addressed in the Bible. You are stretching your interpretation of the Bible here to fit your prejudices, meaning pre-judgments, of gay parents.

    Yes. God's way is for loving parents to love and nurture their children.

    Sexuality and biology of either parent or child doesn't matter in the least.

    What is your point ChaliceThunder? Parents of both sexual orientations can be horrible parents but homosexual parents are always worse parents than heterosexual parents in general. Why is that? Because God did not design the family to have two parents of the same sex. Yes, you read what I said right. The family is not designed to have two parents of the same sex. It is disgusting that homosexual "parents" can raise children in this nation and in any nation. It should be outlawed! :preach:

    God didn't design the family to have a single parent either, but it happens. Or do you consider single parent families sinful as well?

    No I do not but single parents happens. Gay "parents" should never happen. In fact, people shouldn't even be gay!
