Social science evidence agrees that the best environment for the well-being of children is a household with both a mother and a father. A homosexual environment, on the other hand, can model homosexual behavior to children. In a study published in the January 1996 issue of Developmental Psychology, London researchers Susan Golombok and Fiona Tasker found that children raised by a homosexual parent were much more likely to experiment with homosexual behavior themselves. Based on their findings, Golombok and Tasker acknowledge that “by creating a climate of acceptance or rejection of homosexuality within the family, parents may have some impact on their children’s sexual experimentation as heterosexual, lesbian or gay.” The state’s interest in protecting children should continue prohibiting homosexual couples from adopting children. Although gay advocates say that some children will be “languishing in foster homes,” if willing, any homosexual could apply to adopt these hard-to-place children. This is because single persons — including a homosexual — can already qualify to be an adoptive parent (this is already occurring, primarily in the San Francisco and Los Angeles areas). Therefore, the push for homosexual couples to jointly adopt children is actually a back-door strategy to gain the rights and benefits of homosexual “marriage.” In addition, unmarried heterosexual couples living together should not be allowed to adopt because how can they commit their lives to a child when they refuse to commit to each other in marriage? California needs to continue the current policy where children are adopted by married couples first, and second by singles whom case workers judge to have a healthy home.

My views on same-sex marriage couples adopting children are that I respect the people who are gay, lesbian, and bisexual but in general and as a society many individuals do not accept the fact of adopting innocent children by same sex marriage couples. The reasons are that children are here in this world because of a mother and father, and I think that needs to be respected towards the straight couple. Same sex couples attempting to create a family by adopting children…
For years now same-sex couples have been fighting for equal rights. That topic is nothing new, we just believe that the gay and lesbian community have been quiet for various reasons. Many being that there are millions of citizens that believe being gay is wrong and how its immoral. We believe that citizens have this sense of religion towards the gay activism. That how it's religiously immoral for anyone not to obey the rules of the bible. In which proves the reason why some gay’s are sought to be…
is not to criticize the beliefs that one has on same sex couples and if it is right or wrong. This is about the children and their welfare. Take a moment to think of which situation you would rather see, a young child in foster care. With the 10 other kids he shares room and board wearing the hand me downs and same too small shoes or a gay couple with a well taken care of child. That will get a hot meal and shoes that fit. Seeing a child with s couple that genuinely love the child and wants to see…

SUMMARY OF THE ARTICLE
It is now legal in every state in the United States for people with the same sex to get a marriage license. There are still many states in the U.S who wish this law did not pass. The real question is since the law passed can anyone get their marriage license when the couple is of the same sex? The answer is yes. Unfortunately, there is much delay. The reason is because many states are refusing this law and try to avoid this law to…
not matter if they are two men or two women, love is love and should be recognized as love. Marriage is not the same as it used to be and it is both legitimate and necessary, in lieu of the changes in mankind, to examine if marriage, which existed unchanged for thousands of years, means the same thing these days. I firmly believe Homosexuals should be able to marry.
Denying same-sex couples the right to marry stigmatizes gay and lesbian families as inferior and sends the message that it is acceptable…
Same Sex Marriage
The controversy over the decision to make same sex marriage legalized has been going on for many years now. The decision that is made to be united as one is to be made between two people. Whether is it between a man and women, a man and another man, or women and another woman. As long as there are two people that care about each other and have a loving relationship should be allowed to be united. Only one state allows “gay marriage”, which is Massachusetts. New Jersey, Connecticut…

change in our world. The change I’m talking about is seeing same sex couples everywhere. A lot of people have been hiding the fact that they feel for the same sex and now they are opening up more and more. But what are some of the problems same sex couples had to face not only in the past but the present also. Do same sex couples have the same rights as heterosexual couples? What if anything is different? What are some facts about same sex couples that you may of not known before? And I’m also going to…
In recent years, there has been a considerable shift in the belief system of many Americans in regards to marriage equality. It appears that people are coming around to the understanding that all Americans deserve the same rights regardless of their sexual orientation. It is my belief that homosexuals should be allowed to marry because it is their constitutional right as American citizens to pursue happiness.
In “In defense of tradition marriage” Anderson states that…
