I wish to comment on the direction we are going with the gay and lesbian rights movement. It is moving too fast and there will be a backlash, due to their stance on many issues. I talked to a Lawyer, a gay guy who was from Los Angeles today about raising adopted babies. He said he personally would never do it, but it is a great idea. He said to me it was better than them being raised by the Catholic Church. WOW. Heavy statement and he might have something there. I did not want to get into a verbal debate over the issue, usually cause I win, and this guy just did not have the brainpower for it anyway (most homosexuals are above average intelligence in my opinion). He was correct in his argument of the Catholic Church, so I see his perspective.
What I see over all is a lining up of opposition, First it was the Boy Scouts and that was really not a good issue since it was blown out of proportion and just because adults disagree is no reason to hurt the kids over the issues. After all the Boy Scouts is an American Tradition and should not be compromised due to a few isolated incidents. The Boy Scouts help kids and everyone gay or not should be 100% for helping kids; it is our responsibility to the next generation. This issue of gay people suing to adopt and putting the issue out in the media and public is not a good idea right now, since we should stay united as a country. There will be a time for change and slow change is better for all, too much too soon will hurt both sides credibility, promote hatred and misunderstanding on all sides. Besides the media makes a field day out of it anyway, since controversy sells newspapers. Since I do not opine, but do believe every kid who needs to be adopted gets adopted and right now that is happening. Right now it is better to all say we are Americans and we stick together.
Look; let's all get on the same page and work together on a common goal and hen we can discuss this as friends instead of as enemies or divided as Blue and Red, Black or White; Gay or Straight. Let's all chill out and think about it alright?
