The Reich wing always thinks creating life, having a family, being happy are bad ideas when that life is not going to conform to its very narrow-minded bigoted definitions.

Maybe right-wing conservative Christians having families is not a good idea after all. Seems like they always produce idiots like scottjewell.
And someone please tell me how a website called "Free Republic" is home to a bunch of fascist idiots who want to ban anything they disagree with? Is that like communist totalitarian dictatorships having "democratic republic" in the name?

There are straight people who also have to resort to donor egg or sperm, to adoption or to surrogate mothers, it's not a specific gay issue, stupid. All families are a bit different, ya know. For example; my family is me, my husband and our two cats.
Btw, what were you going to tell him about his family? That first sentence seems a bit stunted. And how do you know that the woman HAD to sell herself? There are people in this world who genuinely want to help people, not to score points with Big Daddy In The Sky, but to make people happy.

Right. Sit across from a fundie who tells you you can't visit your spouse in a hospital? You can't authorise medical care for your child who has just been seriously injured? Maybe the fundie attack on marriage is NOT such a good idea after all?

Hey, kids grow up in all sorts of families. This isn't a 50s sitcom.

And yet, said child would likely have a better life than this kid would. Funny how you don't care about this...
8/17/2012 5:51:07 AM
What, you have to have children solely by sexual intercourse with your wife/husband? So, adoption is bad, yes?
8/17/2012 6:07:43 AM
Well, at least they aren't cunts like you, Scotty.
8/17/2012 6:29:49 AM
So are you saying that adopted kids aren't family either? Because I know people with adopted kids that treat EXACTLY like their biological kids. Also, if the two daddies love the kid, feed the kid, clothe the kid, educate the kid, and go to the kid's basketball games what the hell does it matter if the kid has two daddies?
Maybe such a family is NOT a good idea after all???
But let me guess, an abusive, alcoholic dad who beats the mom and kids is better than a loving gay couple, right?

"Maybe such a family is NOT a good idea after all???"
Maybe, but you haven't actually made any argument as to why that might be the case. This is why people don't take your side seriously--you can't form any sort of cogent argument in favor of your opinion as it always just boils down to "gay people are icky" and you end up sounding like a five year old talking about the opposite sex. Your only other option is on religious grounds, and even that isn't a very good argument when your own holy book says more about the evils of eating shellfish than it does about homosexuals.

Oh My Dog!
Big gay bucks, Scotty?
I know what's in your closet.
But seriously, children aren't the ones getting all in a fluster; all they care about is that they have a family.

Come back in a decade or so. I'm sure Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John will tell you he doesn't mind in the slightest that he has 'Two Daddies' - Elton John and David Furnish - as he has two doting
parents regardless. Oh, and on the subject of same-sex parents, remember:
That's as in Joseph, and God.
I love the smell of annihilated arguments in the morning. Smells like... victory.

"Maybe such a family is NOT a good idea after all???"
Well, you could try to provide some evidence to support your position.
8/17/2012 7:50:52 AM
Maybe if you want us to believe the judgmental bs you spew you should provide some evidence, but I'm not holding my breath.
8/17/2012 8:45:19 AM
Don't be so hard on Scott. When two men go through all this trouble to have a child, it guarantees one thing: that this child was wanted at least once in its life. With all the trouble fundies have with the concept of love, we can't be shocked to find out he's jealous!
8/17/2012 8:54:22 AM
There is lots and lots of research on this and it all says that kids raised by same-sex parents turn out just as well as those raised by "traditional" parents and, in a few cases, better (those raised by lesbian parents have a lower incidence of mental illness for reasons we don't yet understand).
8/17/2012 8:55:08 AM
What the freaks seem to forget is that most children of gay people were conceived and born in the standard heterosexual manner. Many, if not most, gay people spend a period of their lives as straight before they recognize and/or accept their sexuality and a great many of them have children. Adoption and "artificial" means are the minority.
8/17/2012 9:29:20 AM
That whole comment section is a gold mine of submittable material.
8/17/2012 10:58:30 AM
Fundies Make Me Sick
As long as the child is in a loving home, who the fuck are you to complain? Bitch.

"Big gay bucks"? No, that's not repressed at all.
8/17/2012 1:44:20 PM
Give geneticists another 5-10 years, and gay couples won't need surrogate parents to make things work.
8/17/2012 3:35:07 PM
Scott, you're a nosy little moron. The only thing that matters, is that the children are in a good home.
Off topic: Is (Un)Free Republic EVER going to update their site design? As much as JimRob whines about money, he doesn't seem to spend much on his site. It's still 1996 over there! *LOL*

Gay families are so weird, right? How can they possibly be normal and have relationships, feelings, and emotions like regular human beings, gosh. Like straight parents never use artificial methods, surrogates, donors, adopt, have step children etc... Those families are FREAKY.
The only people who should have and deserve families are the *good Christians.* Because they never make mistakes or do or say shitty, unspeakable things, of course.
8/17/2012 5:47:15 PM
I fail to see how adoption is any worse for gays than it is for straights. So does the APA.
