If lesbians and gays want to marry each other, then why shouldn't they be allowed? I have nothing against that. However, when it comes to children, I firmly believe that any child shall have one father and one mother; nothing more, nothing less.

Lesbians and gays should be allowed to have children. The child might grow up in a weird environment, but that shouldn't hold parents back from having kids.

so true, they should have the same rights, what makes them them "bad" parents? just because they are homosexual? makes no sense to me.... Are they afraid that homosexuals (and especially gays) might abuse their children, is that it? I hate conservatives! ***mod mode*** bny please try to put some more effort in your post! a single one-liner is ok but keep continuing posting these one-liners and i will consider them as spam! ***/mod mode***

Agreed. The balance should be present.

Well, one reason is, however natural it is for homosexuality to be present in a species, it is not natural for them to have offspring. Ergo, we don't know what it will do to the child in the long term. Secondly, it's not for protection from the parents, so much as those such as Scorpy who have an irrational hatred / fear of them. Let slip that your parents are both lesbians, and you could be in for a whole world of mental hurt, possibly physical, depending on the surrounding intolerance. I'm not against it because I'm against homosexuals, if anything, they're pretty brave to put up with what they do. I'm against it for the effects it could have on a kid.

no one here is talking about the parents , what they are telling is most people cannot yet accept the notion of same sex couple so they tend to be negetive about it it can be hard on the kid

the mod man I hate conservatives!

roll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif I have no problem with gays having the same rights as a married couple, tax exemptions what have you, IE a civil union. However, I am highly against calling same sex unions marraige. Oh, uh, I hate you too. I guess.

I haven't got a problem with it. Better a happy family with two dads or two moms then a broken home with one of each.

My point is it isn't marraige.

I have zero, nadda, zilch problems with them having the same benefeits of a married couple, so long as it isn't considered marraige.

Civil unions is the term, I believe.

That may be it. Point is I have no problem with them having the same rights as a married couple. Anybody who thinks they don't deserve the same rights are against life, liberty, and the pursuit of whatever floats your boat.
