Officials to Reconsider Denying Couple Adoption of Foster Children Over Opposition to Homosexual Parenting

teddy-bear-compressedOfficials in the United Kingdom have reportedly agreed to reconsider their denial of a couple’s request to adopt two foster children in their care because they told social workers that the juveniles needed a mother and a father, and not two daddies.

“At a meeting this week, the council recognized that the initial rejection was wrong. The couple will now be assessed by someone outside the council,” the Christian Legal Centre announced on Friday.

As previously reported, the couple, which has not been identified, has been looking after the children since early 2016 and has sought to adopt the youth themselves. They had initially been turned down because their house was too small, but they now plan to expand.

When they were later told by a social worker that two men had expressed interest, the couple “expressed a degree of shock and asked if this was a ‘joke.’” They also said that it would be hard to explain the concept to one of the children—a girl—who had said she was “waiting for a new mummy.”

Two days later, the couple moved forward again to adopt the children themselves, stating that they believed it would be too hard on the children to be removed a second time from people that they loved.

But the couple was denied, receiving a letter that read in part, “Having heard that the prospective adopters were a same-sex couple, you shared some opinions in relation to this proposed placement which are concerning and which would not enable the service to progress an inquiry to be assessed as prospective adopters, as these views could be detrimental to the long-term needs of the children.”

The couple interpreted the letter as meaning that the government believes the family wouldn’t be supportive if one of the children announced later in life that they were homosexual.

“We were deeply shocked when we received the info,” the father recently told the BBC Two’s Victoria Derbyshire Show. “We never shared an opinion that is homophobic. We have friends that are homosexual.”

But the couple, which identifies as Roman Catholic, believes that children are best raised in a home with both a mother and father.

“We think having this answer from social services shows there is no free speech in England,” the mother said. “We won’t give up because we think this is what the children want. We think this is the right way. We don’t think social services is looking after the best interest of the children at the moment.”

Following a meeting this week with social services, the Christian Legal Centre expressed optimism that officials had agreed to reconsider.

“We are encouraged by the progress made this week, and grateful that the council has recognized its mistake and adopted a more appropriate stance. It is a step in the right direction,” Executive Director Andrea Williams said in a statement.

“There is still a long way to go, and we will continue to stand with this couple,” she said. “Please pray with us that these young children are able to stay with them.”

    If these views are detrimental to children, that would include biological as well as adopted.
    How long before they start removing biological children from parents espousing those views?

      Exactly! This is why if we can get rid of the gays, we have a chance to not just save our nation but the world!

      • johndoe

        How do you plan on getting rid of gay folks? You’re not the only ones who can protect themelves. You make me laugh o internet warrior!

        • Oboehner

          How about the much needed mental help?

          • Hugh1

            I think you meant to say this to american4godcountry, the goof that, ‘wants to get rid of gays.’

          • Oboehner

            Nope.

          • Hugh1

            You don’t recognize the ‘final siolution’ in those words? I do.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Get rid of the CONTROL or REIGN of the Sodomites in the West. Immoral people should not rule people. It is destructive upon everyone especially on children.

          • Hugh1

            Have you ever noticed how pius, religious hypocrits, frequently politicians, are constantly in the news for sex crimes and other indisgretions? Look no further than Mr. Trump’s words about his sexual exploits. These comments are distructive to the family, women, and children – as well as the men who think this behavior is OK.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            There are 2.3 bilion who claim to be Christian on Planet Earth. Look beyond your own little world. Mr. Trump is better than Hillary who’d massacre more number of unborn children and install Sodomy’s grip in the land. Christianity is the only mean on Planet Earth to get saved and also stay free.

          • Hugh1

            Christians don’t gat abortions? Are you kidding? Christians don’ t get divorced? Christians don’t engage in sodomy? What planet are you on?
            I fear people who hold opinions against gays, who call their lives unacceptable, or want to get rid of gays – all things said here. I fear that the flood gates of abortion will open once a means to identify gay in the womb is developed. I fear those who condem their fellow man for how he or she is born, who place this fact of being above all else, who sanctify their own lives and condemn the very existance of others.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Anybody claims to be Christian which just means “a civilized person,” especially in the former Christendom( the West including USA) and that does not mean anything. True Christians fear God and keep and at least strive to keep the Word of God as it is.

          • johndoe

            You dont have to be christian to be civilized

          • johndoe

            Christians enslave through indoctrination.

          • Sharon_at_home

            Is teaching what the Bible says indoctrination? My Pastor teaches us how to understand what the Bible is trying to convey to the readers. It is up to us what we believe for the most part. Some religions I understand, tell the members that they Have to do this or that or they will go to hell. But strictly teaching and aiding understanding is not indoctrination. I guess you will have to expand your knowledge of the various religions.

          • johndoe

            Agreed

          • johndoe

            This is not a monarchy and we have no rulers. Gays are equal citizens in America. Our children are not at risk due to gays.

          • Ira Pistos

            Your children are at risk due to sin. Homosexuality et al. is a manifestation of a cultures embrace of sin. It is sin just as theft and murder are sin. Your culture adores their sin. You doom your children to eternal punishment by pressing them into adoration of sin.

            Our Lord Jesus died to save us from sin. He died and rose victorious from death after 3 days. He paid our penalty for the crimes we committed against Him so that we could believe in Him and repent.

            Our culture mocks and spits at that sacrifice. Seeks to pervert that which He set in place in every conceivable manner. Homosexuality is a manifestation of that mind set and its acceptance, above all others is the instrument the Godless are using in their attack against Christianity.

          • johndoe

            Sorry hon but I dont believe in sin. Its a man made concept. My children are just fine.

          • Oboehner

            “How about the much needed mental help?” Not seeing it.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            That is not required. They are not mentally ill.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Requirement of participating in other people’s sinful lifestyle is close to mental illness and definitely a child-abuse. The Western nations lack sane morality when they have no Christianity. This news is the proof. Nations still pretend to obey to the West only because the West is rich and powerful. It seems God is punishing the West and its faithful servants by childlessness. Truth prevails.

          • johndoe

            Nobody is asking for participation. They’re being asked to do their job. Get the resl truth

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Its not a sinful lifestyle.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            God said it is. (Leviticus ch.18-20, Romans ch.1) Children should not be surrendered to pervs to be raised. Today’s immoral secular Westerners do not define anything spiritual or moral. Today’s secular Western culture is against the Word of God and is downright immoral and destructive to mankind. The West needs Judeo-Christian values to be good and moral.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            That’s not God saying anything, the Bible was written by human beings, and you know this. We can put any hateful statement we like in God’s mouth by attributing it to some “holy” text or other.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You are wrong. The Holy Bible declares homosexuality is sin. Secular West has become immoral and evil by de-christianization and wants to enslave mankind with its homosexuality. Those who listen to secular Western culture becomes slaves to abnormal sexual depravity. Mankind need the Holy Bible for freedom from the rich Western pervs this century. Things haven’t changed much regarding racism. Secular West targets Biblical Christians instead of colored people this century for bullying.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            “The Holy Bible declares homosexuality is sin.”

            I swear you never read anything I write, Grace. I know YOU THINK the Bible says that (and a lot of people, Christians included, disagree that those passages refer to homosexuality). But for the sake of argument let’s assume they do. It’s still just the words of MAN. If God wrote those words Himself you might have a point. But He didn’t.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            God wrote it. Read Leviticus ch.18-20. No one has to submit to Western Sodomites. That’s slavery to falsehood. And secular West’s depravity is despicable even in the pagan standard, not just the Christian’s.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            No, God didn’t write it.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Yes, God wrote the Holy Bible. The Holy Bible changes people’s lives for good forever. Only the Holy Bible does such thing on the entire planet. The secular West has become worthlessly greedy and immoral by losing the Holy Bible. Nothing else can cure the de-christianized West. You need to repent of your sins to get saved. Read the Gospel of John chapter 3.

          • johndoe

            Bronze age goat herders wrote the bible and it has been through multiple translations over the last 2000yrs

          • Jenny Ondioline

            No Grace. Human beings wrote the Bible.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            By the complete inspiration of the Holy Spirit. (John ch.13-17) It declares “thus says the Lord” and is incomparably outstanding among all things in the world. It tells you what’s wrong with you and how to get saved and is altogether true. Read Psalm chapter 14 and Romans chapter 8.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            That’s your false opinion, and this is what God said and the Bible content proved the truth. Your civilization only has toxic junks apart from the Holy Bible and you should listen to God: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” ( I Timothy 3:16)

          • johndoe

            The USA is the greatest nation on earth. Stop insulting true Americans. It isnt very becoming.

          • johndoe

            Hon, ypur bible only applies to you and thosr who believe in it. Quit insulting Americans with the use of the word colored

          • Hugh1

            Abusing gay children with punishment or bizarre, sadistic elector-chemical treatments called reparative therapy is child abuse. Why do you only see the sins of others and not your own?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Gay children need to be told God’s truth that both homosexuality and transgender are sins for them to get saved and live well. Withholding the truth is a crime.

          • Hugh1

            Grace, you are dealing in heresy by defining a new definition of original sin. By every measure we know, people are born gay and there is no changing that. Why is it that you cannot acknowledge your own misdirected call to salvation?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You are wrong. No one is born to be gay. God said homosexuality and transgenderism is sin. ( Leviticus chapter 18-20, Deuteronomy ch.22, Romans chaper 1, Jude chapter 1) Science proved that the Holy Bible is right. If we follow the Western pervs’ lies, they will start saying people are born to be cannibals, incests, pedophiles, etc., and then everyone will be mentally ill as they are and the planet will get nuked. ( Genesis ch. 18-19) No thanks to that. You guys got bored from having full-stomach for the longest time and are brainwashed by sinful Western liberals. You need the Holy Bible for salvation and the truth and sane morality and freedom.

          • johndoe

            Now you’re being disingenuous. Science hasn’t proven the bibles claims in any sense. And yes, gays are birn that way….or do you have any proof to back up your claims?

          • Oboehner

            Most definitely mentally ill despite propaganda to the contrary.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I don’t pay attention to propaganda. I pay attention to science.

          • Oboehner

            Then you must know gay is a mental disorder.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Science is precisely how I know it isn’t one. But I try to live a life free of bigotry.

          • Oboehner

            Pseudo-science just like the “gay gene” fraud. It gets tre3ated just like any other emotional problem or addiction. It’s learned behavior exactly like Pavlov’s dog so it can be unlearned.

            “But I try to live a life free of bigotry.” “Are you referring to a laying of hands at your evangelical church?” Perhaps you should try harder.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Yeah, there are more sound and trusted medical organizations out there than I can name who are all fine with homosexuality. If Oprah or Dr. Phil said it, I might be more inclined to dismiss it as pseudo-science as you seem so desperate to do. If you fell in love with anyone in your life you know that you don’t unlearn things like that, it’s obvious.

          • Oboehner

            Oprah or Dr. Phil? LOL, I’m done here.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I think you were done before you started.
            Oprah is pseudoscience. The American Psychiatric Association isn’t.

          • Oboehner

            The APA had gay on the list of mental defects, the only reason it was removed was because gay activists put the screws to them to change it, now pedophilia is coming off the list incrementally riding the wake the gays made. Doesn’t change the fact it all is a mental defect.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I’m not talking about the APA. I’m talking about the American Psychiatric Association. And your little story is a PRATT (previously refuted a thousand times).

          • Oboehner

            American Psychiatric Association = APA
            I can see this conversation is pointless, even the most remedial concepts easily escape your grasp. Bye bye now.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            No, the APA is the American Psychological Association. A different organization entirely. But by all means continue to walk around declaring victory when you’ve been shown to be wrong.

      • johndoe

        How exactly do you plan on getting rid of them? This should be good!

  • american4godncountry✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Allowing gays in general to get married is a disgusting immoral thing to do, but allowing them to adopt children? Are you sickening.

    • johndoe

      Sorry to tell you but many gay couples have kids. They do well and flourish in their care. You are a sad person.

      • Oboehner

        “They do well and flourish in their care.” They are robbed of needed influences of BOTH sexes. I’ve know victims of pedophilia who have done well and flourished in life DESPITE it, doesn’t mean that should be endorsed.

        • Hugh1

          They do well and flourish in their care. Homophobes should be prohibited from foster care because they are likely to be a danger to gay children.

          • Oboehner

            So you’re ok with pedophiles raising children too I see.
            BTW “homophobe” is nothing more than name-calling, it is meaningless.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I didn’t see anything about him saying that he was OK with pedophiles. Are you making it up?

          • Oboehner

            That seems to be the problem, you don’t see. Read the whole thread, then exercise those brain cells.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            You can answer the question or you can soak in your smarm. He did not mention being OK with pedophiles. Lying for Jesus?

          • Oboehner

            “I’ve know victims of pedophilia who have done well and flourished in life DESPITE it, doesn’t mean that should be endorsed.”

            “They do well and flourish in their care.”

            Like I said, Read the whole thread, then exercise those brain cells.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I don’t see anything about him saying he’s OK with pedophiles. Those statements refer to homosexual parents. One more time, for clarity: Are you making this up?

          • Oboehner

            *sigh*

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Oh – you were saying homosexual equals pedophile, is that why you’re sighing?

          • Oboehner

            “Not All Pedophiles Have Mental Disorder, American Psychiatric Association Says” Just like gays are listed.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Which means that homosexuals are pedophiles?

          • Oboehner

            Use those brain cells!!

          • Jenny Ondioline

            You first. Pedophiles are interested in children, homosexuals are not.

          • Oboehner

            That is pointless to them being mental defects.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Except that they aren’t. As you well know.

          • Oboehner

            So you’re saying pedo’s are normal, got it.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            You’re the one doing that. You’re saying they’re the same as homosexuals, who ARE normal. I’m saying the opposite.

          • Oboehner

            They are the same as homos, neither are normal.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            So even after being given definitions of both words which show entirely different things, you still believe they are the same. We are dealing with a world class philosopher here, folks.

          • Oboehner

            Both are a form of sexual deviance.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Too bad the entire medical world disagrees with you. Still, you know better.

          • Oboehner

            Popular opinion and political correctness do not equal painfully obvious facts.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Yes, because all the world’s scientists are part of a huge anti-Christian conspiracy.

          • Oboehner

            Now you’re making more crap up, nice.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I was being sarcastic. You are the one acting like it’s a huge conspiracy.

    • Hugh1

      Parents who reject their gay children are evil. Christian parents who kick their kids to the curb and throw them out of the house for being gay sacrifiice their children to lives of crime and prostitution. Then they blame it on Christ. That’s chutzpah. And sickening.

      • Oboehner

        If you think gay is ok, what do you have against crime and prostitution?

        • Hugh1

          I would tell my gay child that I love him unconditionally and just the way God made him. I would tell him to beware of so called ‘Christians’ who too often kick their children to the curb for being gay, exposing them to the crime and prostitution frequently experienced by homeless youth.

          • Oboehner

            You failed to answer the question, try again.

          • Hugh1

            The problem here is one of comprehension, you don’t listen.

          • Oboehner

            No answer for that either I guess, at least you’re consistent.

        • Jenny Ondioline

          You seem to struggle with the concept of consenting adults.

          • Oboehner

            Prostitution is consensual is it not?

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I don’t have a problem with prostitution.

          • Oboehner

            What does that have to do with the statements made by Hugh 1?

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I happen to disagree with him on that point, my issue here is your deceptive and bizarre comparison of homosexuality and abuses such as crime. No one’s being abused or taken advantage of in a homosexual relationship, so your post is bogus.

          • Oboehner

            All involved are victimized whether they wish to admit it or not.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Not by the dictionary definition. If you enter into something voluntarily you’re not a victim.

          • Oboehner

            So then heroin addicts have no problems, I see.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            It isn’t addiction, it’s attraction.

          • Oboehner

            How little you apparently know of gay men.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            How little you understand of basic human sexuality.

          • Oboehner

            I know gay is a mental defect which appears to be more than you know on the subject.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            And you know this how, doctor? Can we see some credentials, or are you simply a guy with a religious bigotry you wave around every so often?

          • Oboehner

            Doesn’t take a rocket scientist…

          • Jenny Ondioline

            You’re right, just a garden variety Ph.d. will do it. So let’s have it.

          • Oboehner

            Right, or whatever…

          • Jenny Ondioline

            So you really have nothing except an anger at science for proving something your religion has taught you otherwise about.

          • Oboehner

            All you do is yammer on “science this, science that” with no shred of any proof. What next you’ll yammer on about unicorns being real?

          • Jenny Ondioline

            You’ve got bucketloads of proof, all of which you don’t understand and you sneer at. You are what is known as a lost cause. Yours is the realm of unicorns and talking snakes, not mine.

          • Oboehner

            My beliefs are not taught in government schools at taxpayer expense, I need no proof – that burden is on you, so where is it.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I’ve seen you get presented with proof from so many sources and you’ve rejected every single one. You’re a hopeless case, a lost cause. Your issue is with the people who allow evolution to be taught in public schools in science classes (which it is). And here you are on a message board instead of taking your fight to where you can be laughed at on a grand scale.

          • Oboehner

            Do quote the proof you’ve given, be specific.
            BTW, appeal to authority and ad hominem attacks are not proof.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            I’m not playing that game with you. You know where your public library is and you know where the evolution section is. You also know how to Google things I’m sure, countless universities are going to have enormous sections on evolution. And remember, just because you don’t understand science doesn’t mean it’s not dependable.

          • Oboehner

            Giving up? Thought you would.
            There’s that neon sign flashing above your head “Nothing but bling faith!”
            Then there’s the “I’ve seen you get presented with proof from so many sources…” Lie.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            No, because the library doesn’t file it under “blind faith”.
            The bookstores don’t file it under “blind faith”.
            The scientists don’t call it “blind faith”
            It’s fact.
            Who calls it blind faith? Just you. I think that says a lot, and you should be ashamed of yourself.

          • Oboehner

            ZZZzzzzz…. redundant appeal to authority arguments always put me to sleep, keep trying to defend your blind faith though, you keep making my point.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            It isn’t cute to sneer at universally accepted science. In fact willful ignorance is something to be humiliated by.

            ZZZzzzzz…. redundant appeal to authority arguments always put me to sleep, keep trying to defend your blind faith though, you keep making my point.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Yeah, I think you slept through science class too. Keep attacking the status quo and keep hiding your agenda, it makes you look absolutely stellar.

          • Oboehner

            You haven’t been able to come up with anything other than your blind faith and yammering on about libraries, seems that it was you sleeping through science class. Keep pushing your bling faith and keep hiding behind appeal to authority arguments and your ad hominem attacks, it makes you look absolutely stellar.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Libraries – yes, these time-honored halls of wisdom and knowledge are all part of your conspiracy theory, right? All those scientific studies, tests, data, proofs, experiments – they count for nothing and are no better than the faith of the talking snake? Who are you trying to convince?

          • Oboehner

            Again you yammer on with appeal to authority, yet give zero substance – only prove all you have is blind faith.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Again you attack without having the courage to state your own belief, because you know how much that opens you up to the MOST IRONIC attacks YOU are using against science.
            I don’t use blind faith. Never have, never will. You can continue to call settled science appeals to authority and whatever -isms you want. They’re not.

          • Oboehner

            ZZZZZzzzz… Still more nothing, too bad all you have is your blind faith and no substantive information to share – only more of the ever-so-predictable ad hominem and appeal to authority arguments.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Still not blind faith. The substantive information has been around for decades. Denying it doesn’t make it go away. You can’t go through life with your fingers in your ears going “la la la I can’t hear you”. Well, maybe you can, but not without getting laughed at a whole lot.

          • Oboehner

            Still blind faith. The substantive information has been rumored for decades. spreading the rumor doesn’t make it true. You can’t go through life with your fingers in your ears going “la la la science”. Well, maybe you can, but not without getting laughed at a whole lot. I’m laughing a whole lot.

          • Jenny Ondioline

            Not blind faith. Books of easily verifiable facts are not “rumours” and they would have been seriously taken to task if they hadn’t been factual. You can see for yourself that didn’t happen. I’m not the one with my fingers in my ears going la la la…in fact, I’ve pointed out numerous times that your belief system is a house of cards based on blind faith, and that’s the reason you refuse to admit that you’re a Christian fundamentalist. Understandable though, in a way…I’d be ashamed to admit that, too.

    Homosexual parenting is a child-abuse. All children have rights to innocence and purity and morality and normality. Why are the UK and USA’s authorities being so destructive to children this century? Such a tragedy of the former greatest Christendom. Pre-christian is a mere barbarism, but Post-christian is a serious mental illness. Christian Britons and Christian Americans should not yield into their culture’s evil but uphold the Word of God and protect the children.

    • johndoe

      Have any proof? Just more insults for gay Americans. Its no more child abuse than heterosexual parenting. No indoctrination of our children by religion.

  • Patchwork Patty

    The people I know who were raised by gays or lesbians had horrible childhoods. Naturally the mainstream media are never going to interview such people. They prefer propaganda to journalism.

    • johndoe

      Doubtful that you know any kids raised by gay couples. Nice little troll….

    • Sharon_at_home

      How was their childhood horrible? If they were bullied because of the situation at a time that homosexuality was viewed as it is now, yes I can see them having a hard time and IMHO it sounds like they were not strong in their family bond.
      I am a Christian but I believe that we should love everyone and let God make His judgments when it is time. I don’t have to agree with it; I don’t think I should help them with their sin. But when it comes to children, I think there are good and bad parents, whether they are homosexuals or of the more traditional parents. Children will have good or horrible childhoods no matter which is raising them. The Lord will continue to watch over the children just as He always has, and will love everyone – He only hates the sin, you see. not the person doing the sin. He wants everyone to stop sinning and ask for forgiveness. No matter what they’ve done. That’s just who God is. A God of Love.

  • Jargonaut

    Ignore all the Politically Correct propaganda and stick with the hard facts. Gays and lesbians are using their adopted children for sex, physically abusing them, or both.

    I don’t know if we’re allowed to post links here, but type any of these word strings into a search engine. These stories are absolutely heart-breaking.

    Frank Lombard Duke adopted son sex
    George Harasz Douglas Wirth adopted sons
    Peter Truong Mark Newton adopted son
    Ian Wathey Craig Faunch abuse children
    Carl Herold Charles Dunnavant son sex
    Cesar Gonzales-Mugaburu foster boys
    David Cannon John Scarfe son sex
    Christian Jessica Deanda Eraca Dawn Craig torture
    Rachel Stevens Kayla Jones son abuse
    Pauline Moreno Debra Lobel son

    • johndoe

      If we had thousands of lines to take up, we could list all of the heyetosecuals who have physically, sexually, and emotionally abused kids. I’ve sent too many of them to the OR to donate their organs. Bless your heart….

    • http://www.gmail.com/ David van Heerden

      Oh for the good old days when they would just secretly kidnap and murder their victims. Giving children over to evil men for the wholesale betrayal of trust is very bitter.

      • Jenny Ondioline

        So gay and lesbian parents are murderers.
        I don’t know where people like you come from.

  • Unionville

    “Officials in the United Kingdom” don’t care about children. If they did they wouldn’t have closed down Christian run adoption agencies because they refused to allow same sex couples to adopt their children. They care about political power first. And that leads to being politically correct and appealing to a tiny demographic. A tiny demographic who think that if they adopt the trappings of heterosexuality it will make their sexual orientation equal to heterosexuality. Or somehow less then the disordered attraction that it is. Same sex couples who seek to adopt children don’t care about the children they are adopting. If they did, they would not want them to be raised without an opposite sex parent. Which in reality is what children want. A mommy AND a daddy.

    • johndoe

      Wow! Can you qualify the statement about gays not caring about the kids they adopt? Talk about not caring for children. You would rather them be in the foster system or a kids home than with people who loved them enough to adopt them. How heinous of a person are you?

      • Unionville

        I did “qualify” the statement when I said if same sex couples did care about children they would not deliberately deprive them of opposite sex parents. THAT is what is heinous. Children want to have a mother and a father.

        I can’t take your concerns of children being in the foster system seriously when you don’t seem to care that Christian run adoption agencies in the UK, and also here in America, have been forced to close their doors simply because they want the children in their care to have opposite sex couples raise them.

        • johndoe

          Nope. Children want to be loved. They care not if it is opposite sex parents or same sex parents. No agency has been forced to close. Catholic charities closed because they had to adopt to same sex parents due to receiving public tax dollats. They made the choice to close on their own.

          • Unionville

            Of course children want to be loved. There is no dispute about that. But this isn’t solely about love. It is about placing children in the optimum environment. If all children had their preference, they would live in a home full of love with the mom and dad that created them. Barring that, they want a mommy and a daddy.

            “No agency has been forced to close”

            Of course they were forced to close their doors. Many of these agencies work on a shoestring budget. They had a gun held to their head. They must ignore thousands of years of human history with the nuclear family at its core and ignore their own religious convictions and place children into politically correct households. Rather then in households that were best for them. It also mutes any concern you have for kids being in the “foster system”,

          • johndoe

            Gays are just as capable of raisi g kids as heteros. This is nothing but ypur opinion and not supported by research.

          • Unionville

            ====”This is nothing but ypur opinion and not supported by research.”====

            It is disingenuous of you to say that. Virtually all research that has been done on children and the family over the years has consistently held that the optimal environment for the mental and emotional well-being of children is the nuclear family consisting of a mother and a father.

            And I like how you consistently leap frog over my stating that a mom and a dad is what CHILDREN PREFER. If you doubt it, do your own research. Ask everyone you meet, young and old, which they would choose if they could have a do over. A mom and dad. Two dads. Or two moms.

      • http://www.gmail.com/ David van Heerden

        Okay, I’ll agree with you. Some qualification could have been added. Homosexuals DO CARE about children: they care about having the children of others to superficially validate their perversity, and to enable them to perform sexual experiments (e.g. doing their thing with the door open). Maybe it’s some kind of control fetish. You might know.

        • johndoe

          Im married toy wife of 17yrs and have two daughters. Do you have anything to back up that statement? Just uber religious opinion and nothing more. They’re just as capable of parenting as you and I

          • http://www.gmail.com/ David van Heerden

            Someone has helpfully provided a list of tragic stories below. You didn’t look them up, but you did make a comment in which you reject the evidence. I’m sorry to hear that you think your parenting skills no better than those of sexual perverts. Your outlook is sufficiently weird that you may be right though.

          • johndoe

            Opinions vary. They’re just as capable no matter what you say. You’re just interjecting your antiquated religious beliefs. I’ve taken care of many abuse cases in the Pediatric ICU and not one of them were associated with a gay couple. Thanks for ypur bigotry.

          • http://www.gmail.com/ David van Heerden

            The depth of your contempt for Christ has clouded your grasp of statistics.

          • johndoe

            One cannot have contempt for that which doesn’t exist….

  • Becky

    Basically, homosexuality is most unnatural and a grave sin against Almighty God. In turn, homosexuals…parenting…is also unnatural. There’s no naturalising homosexuality.

  • johndoe

    Our culture has gone insane.

    Homosexuals should never be allowed to adopt children, ever.
