"It is our responsibility to make sure that we protect our most vulnerable children and I don't think we are doing that if we allow a foster parent that is homosexual or bisexual."

The Texas state House has approved legislation that would prohibit homosexuals and bisexuals from becoming foster parents

Absolutely ridiculously unreasonable. What do you fundamentalists on this forum have to say about this? I'm genuinely curious as to where exactly this kind of ignorance stems from.

I support this highly progressive and forward thinking legislation.

After all, why give kids to people who actually want them?

yeah, while we're at it, let's not give kids to people who can;t actually have any of their own, even if they're straight.

god must not like them, and so he's cursed them with infertility. who are we to disobey god's edict?

although if we get the real mother to sit on the foster mother when she gives birth, that would make it ok.

Hey Alex, are you saying that gay people are pedophiles?

Dude, I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not. Let me repeat the question. Do you believe that gay people are pedophiles?

Don't worry,I am most definitely being sarcastic! I'm not sure what made you think pedophile, but that wasn't what I meant.

I always have to ask: why is a law like this any more acceptable than one stating that an interracial couple can't adopt? Trent Lott's party threw him right on his ass for suggesting in passing that segregation was a good idea. Why doesn't that happen with gays? I'm curious to see if anyone on this site would step up and defend this kind of legislation.

This isn't quite on topic, but it is interesting. I recall a study covered in the economist where Americans were asked "Would you vote for someone of your party if they were a ____", where blank was pretty much anthing except "white male." I was surprised how high the favorable percentages were-for everything except "gay." The only comparable rating was for an atheist. Go figure.

To bring him out of the closet, I'll tell my position. I think gay people should be put on an island to keep them from normal people. It almost worked with another group of parasites.

There, now he can state his position without any fear.

I'm lying.

LOL. I think we got the sarcasm loud and clear on that one.

What are you protecting children from by preventing gay people adopting? Seriously. And this is from some kind of legal document? Its so bizarre. I've never understood what's scary about gayness.

I'm reminded of something somebody remarked (not without a a little sarcasm of their own) on this forum not so long ago. To paraphrase: of course children shouldn't be given to gay people. Children can be turned gay by an upbringing like that. On the other hand, its okay for heteros to raise children; their children are never gay.
