All over the world there is a move to allow same sex couples to adopt children. They are discussing this issue here in Mexico and one of my fellow Bishops in the CSP has mentioned that they are doing the same thing in Australia. Yet in both cases the Christian Riech have come out with the same old rubbish that it is against Gods Law and it will harm the children etc etc.
Really this is a complete load of tosh. I know that after the war, when many men did not come home, a number of women often moved in together to raise the children. In many cases they were two sisters. Sometimes they were only neighbours. It happened and it worked. These Children did not turn out deranged or with emotional problems. Two people of the same sex are very capable of raising children. It has been proved many times, in many cultures over many years.
No one ever complained about those children or felt they were in some kind of emotional danger. We have to ask why not ????????
Well the only reason I can think of is that if your genitals don’t touch then you are a perfectly great parent. A rock maintaining society in difficult times! But let those bits touch and even worse, enjoy it . Then boom your brain drops out and you become unfit, unsafe and downright dangerous.
These people need to grow up and get over themselves. Just come out and be honest. What they are really saying is exactly what is said in the school yard ......... "urrrrgh no because it is icky". Just as in the school yard this is not a good argument but it is all they have because all the other things they say upon an unbiased look just do not hold water.
If you see yourself among the religious sensible, and yes there are many of us out there, please make your voices heard. Don’t just let the religious reich speak for us all. Stand up for tolerance, acceptance and for truth because it is only when we stand for truth we can actually change the world.
