    Poll: Majority of Americans Support Adoption by Same-Sex Couples

    According to the latest Gallup poll, 63 percent of Americans believe same-sex couples should be allowed to legally adopt children.

    Support for equal adoption rights is actually higher than support for marriage equality.

    As someone who's been out of the closet for over twenty years, this is a poll I never thought I'd see. icon_biggrin.gif

    Obviously because gay and lesbian couples provide a safer, more supportive, and stable home for children than most straights do. So it is obvious to anyone with an ounce of brains that the polls would show favorable ratings for children being adopted by gay and lesbian couples. But don't try arguing with all the NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS about this one because they will just try to twist the statistical numbers around in their itty bitty little brains to feed their radical anti gay agenda.

    I have to disagree with this.

    I dont think gays or lesbians do a better job than most straights do.
    Most straights actually do a fine job raising their children.

    Gays and lesbians are equally able to provide a good upbrining, but I dont think gays and lesbians do it better. You make it seem as if most straight ppl dont take care of their kids. That's just ludicrous IMO.

    Might as well legalize it, but the schools are a problem, other than that many orphan children would love parents to adopt them and have a home with a family that loves them.

    These numbers are great, but they won't matter unless those same people vote to elect representatives who share their views.

    It's never ceases to amaze me that those who rail against bigotry fail to see it in themselves.
