For all you "Gay" bashers..

What if your child grows up to be gay? Will you disown them since you tell them now that it's not ok? Will you really love them less? Do you think they shouldn't be allowed to adopt, or since it's your child will they just be an exception to the rule?

  • Good question. I think that gays should be allowed to adopt. They could be more loving than a man and woman.

  • WOW I just want to apologize in behalf of this very lost soul who uses God to be judging others when she says: "I am not a gay basher but I do believe that their lifestyle is an abomination to God and that they are living a sinful lifestyle. I don't think they should be able to adopt"

    When she says: "but that is my opinion and the topic of gays will always be battled and never resolved. It isn't even worth arguing over honestly." I agree with the part, it isn't worth to argue, I can only say Sorry she just doesn't know any better. And to the OP whatever my son decides it is okay with us because it is only HIS LIFE.

  • I believe all adults should be allowed to marry, adopt and raise children and have all the rights and responsibilities our constitution was designed to allow. Gender and sexual orientation in my opinion have nothing to do with it. Equality for all.

  • I truly believe our sexual orientation as adults is stamped on us at conception. I don't think we choose to love the same sex but we prefer the same sex. With the ignorance we show as a society and the gay bashing that still goes on even today why would anyone choose a life style that is riddled with hatred. If either one of my children came to me and said they were gay I would love them just the same. My children are my world all I want for them is to be happy. I would be very sad though, to know that they would have a rough road ahead of them because of stupid small minded people. Everyone needs to mind there own business. Live and let live.

  • I personally am friends with gays and lesbian couples and they love my daughter to death and i think that they would make great parents if not better parents than me because I don't think that they would get divorced as often as straight couples and I think that they should be allowed to marry and live life just as i would. Also for one of my lesbian couple friends I have offered to them that when they are ready to have children i would be their surrogate mother cause neither of them want to be pregnant and I am sure they would do the same for me if roles were reversed.
