audioalone said:found another article that I thought related to this debate:
Most, if not all I surmize would probably disagree with it. I agree with it 100%! I came from a 2-parent family myself, fortunately. And even though I have a lot of issues, I think I would have suffered more (both emotionally and other ways) if I had been raised by either a single father or a single mother, and even more so by 2 women or 2 men.
I know that there are people on here that are anti-religion or similar, but I know in my heart that no matter what religion I was or am (and I have had my moments myself when I've been turned off of 'religion') I still would feel the same way regarding Ms. Phillips' thought-provoking article.
...Eurgh. "Anti-religion?" Is it perhaps more likely that you are simply a religious fanatic, which doesn't tend to go down well with non-religious or less religious people?
How in the world can you suggest that having either a single parent or two parents of the same sex would have screwed you up more? I would bet dollars to donuts that if you've ever even seen a gay couple, you quickly pulled your collar up to your ears and scuttled out of the area. I doubt you are so much as on speaking terms with a gay couple--or a gay single, for that matter--let alone have any insight into "gay couples" as a demographic.
It's not even worth addressing, but here are a couple of choice quotes from that highly unpleasant article:
Having two ‘mothers’ — or two ‘fathers’, for that matter — is grotesque and wrong.
...they can’t argue that marriage is important because two committed parents are crucial to a child’s well-being, while simultaneously promoting gay parenting, the exclusion of legal fatherhood and the redefinition of a parent into cynical and dehumanising absurdity.
