Bigotry in who can adopt

The issue of gay adoption is a very contested one.  I have read the same statistics that gay couples have a large number of lifetime sexual partners.  But, that is not all gay couples.  Many have monogamous relationships that can give a lot of love to a child.  Somewhere, some time, people will realize that the adoption process needs to be changed. 


We have so many children needing loving homes and so many potential parents that are turned down for one reason or another.  A black family cannot adopt a white child or vice versa.  A single parent cannot adopt because the people think a child will prosper in a two adult home.  A two adult home must be the same color, religion, and opposite sex.


Yet, every day we see single parent households with happy and successful children.  We see mixed race families that love each other and thrive on their family environment.   We see kids put into foster homes because they cannot be adopted and they are abused, neglected and in some cases killed.  But don’t let a happy adjusted gay couple get a child.  Heaven forbid the bible says it is wrong.  So let a child go from home to home and know no one who may love him or her.  No one to call when they grow older and talk about the love they had in their life when they were growing up.  No one to really call a family.  Yea that sounds much better than letting a child be adopted into a loving family. 


Now the vast majority of foster parents are loving and kind people.  They truly care for the children we put in their care.  But many of them cannot adopt the child they are a foster parent for.  Why?  Because people quote the bible to say they may not make good parents.  God says it is wrong.  I will ask the Creator when I meet him.  My bet is on letting the children have loving parents.


Let the adoption agencies do their jobs.  Look at potential parents for fitness based on the same standards used for married couples and single couples if they are allowed to adopt in a state.  If a person is promiscuous then let the adoption agency do their work and discover that.  Chances are they will not be good parent material.  Let them judge by character.  Let them judge by what a person or couple has to offer.  Not sexuality.


My wife and I tried to adopt once.  We had a lot of love to give.  We have one son who turned out great and we wanted to have more children.  We gave up with all the red tape and outrageous cost involved.


Do not be a bigot and hide behind the bible.   The bible was used to say blacks were inferior to whites.  The bible was used to kill off the people of my tribe.  There are less then 10,000 Lenape (Delaware) because bigots used the word of God for “Manifest Destiny”.  The Indians, Africans, Chinese and other people of color were to leave or submit to the white race.  It was the will of God.  Manifest Destiny was proved wrong.  Opposition to Gay adoptions will be proved wrong too.  Many children today cannot be adopted because they are of color and cannot be placed.  Yet we have couples who want to adopt.  But cannot.


Take sexuality out of the picture.  Judge on what they have to offer.  Not if they happen to love a person of the same sex.  Let social services do their jobs and determine if the people are fit to be parents.  Leave religion out of it.  Leave bigotry out of it.  Look at the love that may make a child and potential parents happy.  That is what makes a family.

Reviewed by Chrissy McVay 4/28/2006
Like so many religions, they pick and choose which passages they want to obey or disobey and how they choose to interpet them. A couple of 18 year old girls who'd been in the foster care system their entire lives stated that 'they would've rather had any parents, even gay parents, just to have someone there for them.' Once they were out of foster care they had no one. No family and no support system. I don't think any God would agree with such cruelty, this is man's hatred and fear of diversity...
