Oregon court voids 3,000 gay marriages.

SALEM, Ore. (Reuters) - Oregon's Supreme Court invalidated 3,000 marriage licenses on Thursday that had been issued to same-sex couples a year ago, saying they were unconstitutional.

The court said Multnomah County, which includes Portland and is Oregon's most populous county, had violated the state constitution's definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman. I'm definately not a bible pounder and try to have an open mind to most things. When it comes down to it, I really don't have a problem with homosexual marriage with one exeption. Adoption of children. If you legalize their marriage, then they would have the right to adopt. I do have a problem with that! All children benefit from having a mommy and daddy influence as a role model. If you ask,"what about divorce?" Sure moms and dads do divorce, but the kids are not introduced to an "alternative lifestyle". They STILL have hetrosexuality as their defining role model. Think having two moms that sleep together, or two dads, doesn't influence children? Think again. It does. Homosexuals can do anything they want, just leave kids out of it. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=671423

RE: Oregon court voids 3,000 gay marriages.

You don't have any gay friends with kids do you? I should introduce you to some. You might change your mind. Gay people have as many straight friends as most straight people. They live in a mostly straight world, and exposure to a gay lifestyle is here to stay, straight or not. Hetero people have no clue until they're actually introduced to the inner workings of non-breeding families.

Regardless of whether you understand or not, if it's OK for parents then it should be OK for kids. Why the double standard? IMO it's better for a kid to have parents than none, gay, single, or hetero.

All hail the Sixteen Men of Tain!

Kuan, in your opinion, what is the best environment for raising children?

What if it is two HIV black kids that nobody wants to adopt? Is it ok for two gay men/women to raise them then?

I have no children, however several of my nieces are very confused about a few kids who have two mommies or two daddies, either because of being gay or divorce and remarriage. It just seems that we shouldn't have to try and explain this to six year olds. Let kids be kids.

Nothing much sadder than that scenerio, but my answer is still a resounding NOPE!

Homo's and Lesbians can do what they like in their own space - but legalizing their activities also endorses and legitamises this small population percentile. Count me as a lowering tolerant anti-gay. I say thank you Oregon court for standing up to yet further changes to good old values. They can civil unite (legal partnership) to their hearts content, but extending this to the right to bring up kids is seriously sick shit.

Yawn,

Married, not married, I don't care.

As for raising kids, let whoever wants to raise one raise one. Given all the screwed up straight parents I can't imagine gay ones are going to do any worse.

A positive and caring one. Single, two males, two females, four aunts, a convent, a whole village, state....

OK maybe not the state.
