    To answer the thread topic question, I'm not for it. I don't think it's healthy. There's no gender balance for the child.

    Well then, RokSki, you might be labeled a homophobe. It should be duly noted, however, that among those who typically post for gay marriage here are some who see the problems with gay adoption.

    The kids with a Daddy or Mommy who come out of the closet; however, have their own problem.

    I half-buy this, but I must point out that this is hardly the most important distinction between homosexuality and "abhorrent" behavior such as rape, murder, and incest.

    Homosexuality doesn't eradicate the rights of others. When practiced, it is an exchange between consenting adults. You cannot consent to rape, murder or incest.

    THIS is the profound difference between the two. I'd argue that sexuality implies some expression therein. So monks are asexual, regardless of which sex they fantasize about.

    We agree but for different reasons, buckweaver.

    Thanks to a society that fetishizes sexuality but pours to theatres to watch stylized torture.

    But that's where we differ, and that's the distinction I was making. Homosexuality cannot be "practiced" because it is not a behavior.

    What is a "homosexual" behavior? Is it anal sex -- no, that's not limited to homosexuals. Is it sodomy -- no, that's not limited to homosexuals, either. Consenting heterosexuals are perfectly free to practice those behaviors, as well. ... Homosexuality is not any of those actions ... it's something different.

    Murder, incest, rape, et al ... those are actions. Those are behaviors.

    Homosexuality is no such thing. It is not a behavior. Therefore, it cannot be classified as an "abhorrent behavior". It cannot meet the former description if it is not the latter.

    What you said is correct. Rape, murder, et al, are not consensual. ... But there's another distinction that has to be made first which makes your point moot. Correct, but moot. ;)

    Me too! Can they adopt a 29-year-old?

    But again, I hesitate to think they'll breast feed you....
