    Default gay adoption



    "The Government will bring forward proposals to resolve the dispute over adoption by gay couples next week, Prime Minister Tony Blair said. "



    I think it prejudice that adoption agencies deny gay couples the right to adopt. what about you?

    It's not adoption angencies in general that are refusing to allow gay couples to adopt; it's religious adoption angencies, i.e. Catholic Adoption centres.

    Yes, it is prejudice and homophobic but what people have to understand is that it is part of their faith. Trying to force everyone to hold the same values would make people fascists.

    Also, the sex discrimination act of 1975 has been broken by the Catholic Church since the law existed, why is the discrimination of gay people unacceptable, yet the discrimination of women is deemed as acceptable?

    Let em I say. Parents come in all shapes and forms and if the child has security and love then whats the dif on whether it's 2 girls or guys, or an average couple I say. I mean what the hell is the big deal about? It's not like cos someones gay that it will make them less of a person...or a parent for that matter, and it's a far better life for a kid rather than living in and out of foster homes for God knows how long.

    What does religion have to do with marriage?

    There are tonnes of ways to get married and it have nothing to do with religion whatsoever. More to the point are you saying that gay people can't be religious?
