Sorry, you are not allowed to adopt children

I currently live in Texas, and we have 4,000 children here in desperate need of a loving home, yet Texas lawmakers have made it legal for Christian-based adoption agencies to refuse same-sex couples from adopting a child from them, no matter how qualified the couple is to adopt children. Even as a straight person, I feel that this is an outrage and really shows how stuck in time Texas appears to be. What happened to separation of church and state? Obviously they have not been informed about the First Amendment of the US Constitution that says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,…”.

Straight mother/father families are not necessarily the best thing for children (even if the Bible tells you so). There can be abuse, hate, rape and abandonment in these families. Being straight does not mean that your marriage will last forever, in fact chances that they will last forever are not too good. Being straight doesn’t even mean that you will be good, quality parents. We need as many good people as possible to adopt children that have no mother or father.

Gay couples have to deal with ignorant people that openly oppose their relationship, yet they stay strong and stay together. That is a strong love. The weak thing to do would be to break up and then pretend to be straight, and get married to someone of the opposite sex. What a horrible life that would be. Parents that are full of love are good parents. Especially since they want to overflow their love onto a baby or child that needs love.

LGBTQ people are usually highly educated and live in more affluent, safe neighborhoods. The perfect situation to raise a child in. Everyone who opposes them, should only be allowed to say anything if there is abuse or malice on the parents part (same goes for straight parents). You cannot change who people love no matter what bill you pass. So save yourself some time and save face from exposing your ignorance to the world and just get over it and let it go.

 

Haven’t these government officials read the Declaration of Independence or heard the “I Have a Dream” speech? “We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal.” If I could add a bit to Martin Luther King’s speech it would be “That men will not be judged on the color of their skin, [or their sexuality,] but the content of their character.” The intelligent thing to judge potential adoptive parents is by their character. Who you love does not make you a bad or good person (as long as your lover is on board with being with you). I really hope that Texas will wake up soon.

The truth about gay marriage

If you still believe in ancient texts like the Bible, Quran or Koran, Talmud … any religious books… you might believe that gay people are sinners and do not deserve to have rights like you do (even though you are a sinner as well).

If people are not hurting themselves or others, then you do not have the right to take away their rights. Why do religious fanatics think it is their job to tell people how they should or shouldn’t live their lives, if those people are not affecting other’s lives negatively? I’m sure you wouldn’t even notice if your neighbor Tom was fooling around with George. Even if they were dating for decades, I promise your life would remain the same.

Why would you go out of your way to point the finger at them when you know that you “sin” just like they do. Why would you be so interested in what other people do in their bedrooms?  It kind of makes these religious nuts, a group of perverts. Do you think that you are so high and mighty that you can change who people love?? I promise you will never be successful with that feat. No matter what kind of laws you set in action… it does not matter. No Christian epiphany will change who people love. You can only change your own perceived defects. You have no right to even try to change other people when they aren’t hurting anyone.

Why waste time and money focusing on how other people have sex? Are the gays obsessed with how YOU have sex? What if your favorite sexual position was illegal? What if you couldn’t get married because you prefer doggy style to missionary? Would you stop doing it doggy style? No. You and your partner are 2 consenting adults who are not hurting anyone by the way you have sex. The rest of the world should mind their own business and focus on something IMPORTANT that they have the power to change in their own lives.
