Same sex couples are not allowed to adopt children in Ireland.....
They shouldn't be allowed to adopt children anywhere.
Totally. I'd much rather live in an orphanage and be abused than be cared for my a gay couple, because the sex life of strangers is TOTALLY your business.
Same-Sex couples should have the same rights as hereosexual couples, to marriage, to have children, to register their union, share property and assets, everything.
Don't care. The more of this crap I see the deeper I know we are in the last days and the closer I know we are to the end of Armageddon. Morals have gone down the drain. That's not going to change. The best thing I can do on an individual level is show people what the bible really teaches, motivate them to turn their life in harmony with God, and try to keep free from this wicked world as much as possible.
As long as children are kept away from priests, I don't see any issue.
nice one Dave I see your keeping up to date with religious goings on....
Since I don't live in Ireland or plan to, what they do in Ireland can stay in Ireland. Feel free.
I support gays, but it's hard to say whether they should be allowed to adopt kids or not.. On one hand, a loving, and nice gay couple may be able to give a child a good life, better than some traditional couples, whom have problems in their relationship and it damages the children. On the the other hand, the child may be wrongly influenced to become gay themselves. There's nothing wrong with being gay, but it certainly shouldn't be encouraged. If a child is raised by two males whom are both mother and father figures, it could really confuse the child, and they may not have a clear understanding of the difference between women and men..So no, probably not.
Please show me the study where you read that gay couples produce gay children, or that being raised by two males or females makes a child unable to tell the difference between a penis and a vagina. It's incredibly hypocritical of you to say that you "support the gays", and then go on to say that being gay should not be encouraged? Clearly you still believe that our (I'm assuming your straight) choice of lifestyle is better than their's and feel free to pass judgement.
For anyone to judge another's parenting skills based on their sexual orientation absolutely baffles me.
It's much more baffling to realize that straight married couples are progressively being forced to share their status (and figuratively, their bed) with same-sex couples. But very frightening that we're told we must share child-rearing with their immoral mindset.
And LOL at your question about children knowing the difference between male and female body parts, because THAT's the basis of the hyprocrisy of the gay agenda, the fact that they rebel at the fact that males are born males and females are born females (except for the occasional anamoly) and as such are meant to have attraction toward the opposite sex.
It's the gay agenda that's trying to brainwash children. Immature adults trying to somehow excuse their own actions by teaching children to condone it. Innocent children being basically mind-raped by people who refuse to acknowledge their own inability to resist temptation. Lord have mercy on the impressionable youths of this society!
What does a persons sexual orientation have to do with there parenting skills.
Exactly my point.
You can't force someone to be gay.
People afraid of or despising gays always make me wonder...
I know a lot of them that have gay husbands or children, and they know it.
I will never understand hypocrisy.
It confounds me that there is still even debate on this topic. Yes - same sex couples should be allowed the right to adopt anywhere. Having gay parents will not turn a child gay, and even if it did, would that really be a problem? With poverty and ongoing health care issues in the U.S. alone, there are too many people in poor health to be adding more.
As it is, when the breeders reproduce and can't/don't want to take care of their own children, the gays who want kids can come in and provide stable familial support. That way, everybody wins.
As long as they stay there! Please don't let them come back!
I am a really conservative guy philosphically , but I gotta say that I would rather a child have a loving home then no home at all.
I see no reason a same sex couple can not adopt children. I think it is a horrible law when the couple could be the best, most loving and caring parents ever...
yet I know in the US an addict can have their child bouce around foster care , get them back, put them through a life of heck, and back into the foster system they go..
If I had to chose where a baby would go, I would definitly pick the same sex couple who could provide a stable , loving home instead of create another wasted life because of the way a child had to grow up...
BC Boutique, I hear what you are saying, here in Ireland the Catholic Church dominated the country for many decades and we have only really started to 'accept' that there is actually a Gay community in our midst.....equal status I think is along way off.....
I believe I answered this before, but if a child if given a good, stable, loving home...I see no problem with it all...if 2 people can provided needed love for a child, so let them!
and I am not homosexual, I am strictly heterosexual.but I do not judge other people for the way they are or choose to be...ever!
Why not?! Ireland is stuck in the 50's in a lot more aspects! There are children living in broken homes, orphanages, foster care and worse. I think its wrong and very degrading to have any law to stop a gay couple parenting a child! What can a straight couple give a child that a gay couple cannot? Nothing! Gay people are people too with the emotional capacity to look after a child, they are no less able to raise, teach and support a child than a straight couple. They have the emotional capacity as I said along with the exact amount of abilities as a straight couple! No one has to right and rightly so to stop anyone raising a family no matter their gender or sexuality! I think peoples perception needs to be adressed everyone is entitiled to their opinion but opinions should still contain a little respect for others. We are all on this planet together no one is either above or any better than each other so it would be nice for a little consideration. People need to understand no matter their views we are powerless over our sexuality its not a choice nor a preference so who gives anyone the right to deny anyone anything that could fulfill their lives and give them happiness?
Well, since we are clearly just impressionable youth who have been mind-raped by homosexuals it makes sense that you gladly ignore the logical points we make and instead throw in your purely opinionated statements.
Again, please show me ANY evidence you have that suggests children of gay parents exhibit "damaged" affects or are somehow tricked into becoming gay themselves?
Your LOL at the "hypocrisy of the gay agenda" is also extremely rude, hypocritical and makes no sense. There have been homosexuals throughout all of history, and some animal species also exhibit same-sex relationships. What reason do you have, besides who you happen to be attracted to and how you were raised, to say that males and females are only supposed to be attracted to each other?
Instead of trying to advocate against happy families who have preferences that happen to be different than yours based simply on the fact that is disturbs you, why don't you go out and help the thousands of damaged children of abusive, Christian marriages and try to limit the lives of their parents.
Anywhere EXCEPT Ireland. LMAO....what does this question even mean?

I have been seeing more and more same sex couples (women) listing themselves as being married on Facebook. Perhaps it has always been there and I have just discovered it. Is it a new thing? A new or growing trend? Is it becoming more the norm now for lesbian or gay couples to marry on Facebook? Is...
