    Religion has no bearing on the government. There for can you name one reason gays should not be allowed to adopt that has nothing to do with your belief in god..

    3)Those Godless football players who would dare touch pigskin must have their unclean hands cut off.

    You are clearly not blind, so why do you keep lying about gay lifestyles harming children? All methodologically sound data shows that your statements are not true.

    http://www.apa.org/pi/parent.html

    Yes, what about the rights of a child who languishes for years in foster care, possibly being abused as their is a higher rate of that in foster homes when there are perfectly good gay people willing to provide a loving caring home for them.


    Logical fallacy: Straw man-those people are waiting for infants, not preteen and teenage children which compose most of the system, not to mention HIV-positive babies that no one wants.

    Yes there is, for the reasons mentioned above.

    Okay, I will. Yes, I know well the price of an open mind. It means I must think for myself and use reason and evidence to decide my actions as opposed to blind, unthinking faith.

    Be careful what you wish for because you may get it.

    Fallen: Good name....So you want an answer that is against the views of God. You believe there is more wisdom to be had outside of his word? All other information is earthly. There is no wisdom outside of God. It changes with the wind and public opinion. Humans regrettably have more inclination to please other humans. They will say and do what ever is popular at the time. Please find two different articles released by the same organization….



    Is the sexual orientation of gay parents harmful to their children?
    Resources used to support "yes."
    Sexual orientation of a parent is critical to the up-bringing of a child. Society is based on the ideal of having heterosexual parents and it goes against values for same-sex parents to raise children. Having homosexual parents is also a major stressor for a child due to society's norms and values - it can cause embarrassment and abnormal feelings. Children who are raised in "alternative family lifestyles" are more likely to engage in drugs and negative feeling towards their parents and themselves than children raised by normal families. {Debra Busher]



    Is the sexual orientation of gay parents harmful to their children?
    Resources used to support "no."
    Parenthood involves a relationship of care, support and responsibility for raising a child. Children have no problems understanding love and do not start out with preconceived notions of whom they should and shouldn't love. Many studies have shown that homosexual parents can raise healthy, happy and well-adjusted children just as successfully as can heterosexual parents. And children of homosexual parents are no more likely to become gay than children of heterosexual parents. (Dawn Burden


    I think I will stay with the word of the one who never changes......GOD!

    Fellow Brothers and sisters, we should stop debating for awhile and take action...Rosie O’Donnell is hell-bent on placing parentless children into corrupt homes. (see the news article below) Those of us who are strong in the word know this is an abomination! PLEASE go back to the beggining of this thread and send out an email to your friends to help stop her!!


    From the News:

    Rosie urges Florida lawmakers to repeal ban on gay adoptions

    TALLAHASSEE - Talk show host Rosie O’Donnell bought full page ads in four Florida newspapers today urging the Legislature to repeal a law that bans gays from adopting children.

    O’Donnell, who recently said she is a lesbian, has a home in Miami Beach and has adopted three children outside Florida.

    Members of Florida’s Legislature say they can’t consider Rosie’s request for changing the law, at least not this year. They conclude their 60-day regular session tomorrow. There are no bills addressing the issue.

    O’Donnell said in a telephone interview from New York that she hopes to have legislation filed for next year’s regular session.

    In the meantime, she said she plans to keep the debate alive.

    O’Donnell placed ads in The Miami Herald, the Tallahassee Democrat, the Orlando Sentinel and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale. The Herald ad alone cost more than $35,000.

    When people are elected to office who have Godly values and make wise Godly decisions, we need to support them with all we have in us! God seems to have raised a group into office across the board that seem to have these values (Bush, Ashcroft, etc.)
    Does anyone have any information on how or who to contact (e-mail, phone, address, telegraph :) ) to voice support for this and future supportable decisions?

    Then what are you doing on a computer as it is outside God's Word? Logically, to be within God's Word, you must renounce the use of computers, modern medicine, modern transportation, and all things not mentioned in the Bible.

    Which organization? I've never heard of either woman.

    This relates to the thread how?

    On a general note, I find it interesting that no one who is against gay people adopting even seem to try to refute my arguments.

    Would Jesus refuse to have anything to do with a sinner, after only one meeting?
    I am sure it took more than one meeting with Mary Magdalen to convert her life.

    Get used to it Corey. I have asked these questions numerous times and received no response:

    ((What's next? Do we take away the children of heterosexual couples who are not Christians? Hey we might as well. They will probably raise their kids to be jaded against immorality or something. That would just be like child abuse.
    Is that the next step? Noone can have children at all, unless we Christians approve of their morals?))


    I guess that's a tough question for them and it forces them to step out from behind the pre fabricated arguments that they have been practicing for years.

    Skirting the tough questions is bad debating, and it takes away from your credibility.

    See the top of page 21 for the complete list but it boils down to:

    1)Why is one part of the Bible (i.e., homosexuals are sinners) more valid than others (flat-Earth, stone those wearing two different weaves of clothes, do not eat swineflesh)?

    2)Offer scientifically valid evidence (i.e., peer-reviewed and methodologically sound collection methods) that refutes the Amer. Psych. Assoc.

    Prove it! Show me in scripture, where gay adoption is pleasing to God! Show me in scripture where Jesus had to continually chase after Mary to change her life. Show me in scripture and I will respond , till then you are just stating your own opinions. Unfortunately for you God's word carries a little more weight than yours.
