Could you fathom being a child in a household where you had two parents of the same sex? Me neither. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says, “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?
“Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Now, take a step back and put yourself in the child’s place.
Laws involving children are usually erected to protect the child, so is this any different?
If you were the child in the case, how would you feel if you had to grow up with two daddies?
I believe a child should have the love from a mother and/or father (man or woman), not both of one.
Say, for instance, you are an adolescent boy growing up in today’s society.
How would you feel if you had two men to call, “DADDY?”
Can you imagine what kind of ridicule and embarrassment the child may face on a daily basis at school or from neighborhood friends?
In my opinion, it is selfish for same sex couples to adopt a child for their personal enjoyment.
Instead of growing up in a traditional household with a mother and/or a father, how would you feel if two women who happened to be lesbians reared you?How confused would you be?
The idea of same-sex adoption is ludicrous and shouldn’t even be an issue. By a person advocating same-sex adoption, they must also advocate same-sex marriage.
By advocating same-sex marriage, we sweep our traditional beliefs under the rug for what we want to do. Are we just accepting this homosexual “fad” now?
I think state governments should ban same state marriages and at couple other states shares my same sentiment.
According to the Mississippi Statute 93-17-3(2), “Adoption by couples of the same gender is prohibited.” Also, according to Minnesota Law, M.C.L. 710.24, ” Only couples married to each other to adopt.”
Why do you do think states come up with laws to regulate such activities?
These states are trying to keep the traditional family together.
When you think about this topic, consider what the child would have to see on a nightly basis 18 years out of his life.
God isn’t pleased.
