    Do you think gay couples should adopt children?

    There are too many children without a loving family to even consider NOT allowing gay couples to adopt.  The couples sexual preference should not even matter.  I have seen too many parents abuse and eventually lose their children to the system.  Those so-called parents did not deserve to be parents and the kids needed a loving caring home.  If that means they go to a gay couple that loves and cares for them the way parents should, then those children will have the lives they deserve.

    People often make the mistake that just because the parents are gay the kid will turn out to be gay too, this has not been proven but its the main reason to block gay couples from adopting children. The gay couple can probably offer a way better lifestyle for the child then an orphanage. The one problem would be that other children will pick on the kid for having gay parents other then that i dont see any problem for the couple adopting a child as long as they dont try persuade the child to be gay like them.

    The question should and can only be "Do you think couples should adopt children?"

    There is no reason to include sexuality as a criterion for suitability to adopt.

    As a father who has raised his children since birth I of course find fault in this question. Gay does not mean lack of parenting skills nor that we will somehow corrupt our children adopted or biological. My children were with me with I had a wife and have been with me since I got a partner ten years ago. They love him as a caregiver and parental figure. I adore my children and keep them as my center when I make decisions concerning my life. I have three teenagers all getting good grades, no drugs, no jail, as they are well-adjusted individuals.  To deny a needy child a parental figure on the basis of their sexuality is no different than telling someone they can not drink from a fountain because of the color of their skin.
