Just by watching all of the court shows lately (People's Court, Judge Mathis, Judge Judy, etc.) it doesn't seem like many straight people are doing such a good job of raising children.

I would rather a stable gay couple adopt a child than a unstable straight couple, although the straight couple is seen more desirable by many.

Sigh. It's just so unfair and stupid. I just can't believe how backwards this country still is sometimes. :-( I just don't get why some belief in a being (whose origin can't be explained either) can be a barrier to love between two people.

I doubt the bible says anything about banning homosexuals from adopting or raising children...
We must have different versions of the bible running around.....

Character is more important to the adoption of a child than race, sexual orientation etc. Will the child be brought up in a proper way, have needs attended to, and be loved" If so, there ya go. Certain gays should not be allowed to adopt, just like certain straights. As I said, it's a matter of character.
