    This 'gay adoption' invention is so interesting!


    I am surprised that this gay adoption news item has not yet gotten boring. It is
    just so rich in culture change. What in the world are we turning into?

    I look at this picture, and see some of the 1,000 words it tells.
    These two men are obviously in love.. they are staring in each other's eyes.

    The man on the left is kissing the little girl, but really looking at
    the man on the right.

    The man on the left does not hold the
    girl, the girl seems simply to be in the way.

    The little girl is
    sucking her thumb and looking somewhere else. She seems like a prop, and
    uncomfortable.

    As the Catholic Church states, adoption of little children this environment
    is child abuse and does violence.

    This is my favorite gay marriage photo so far. I have looked pretty hard
    for something similar, but with a little boy, but have had no luck so far. It is
    plain to me that little boys can not be placed in households for their childhood
    years with 2 gay men. This just can not be done. Please see NAMBLA web site for some of the reasons
    why.

    If you find a picture of 2 married gay men with a little boy, please
    forward it to me.

    This site, Proudparenting (there's that proud 7 deadly again), names this
    as a Catholic 'traditionalist' vs. 'liberal' split. Understanding the Church as
    a money driven political organization, they see power in withholding money...

    However happy a tough stand on gay adoption might make traditionalists, liberal Catholics might feel alienated and choke funding at a time when many U.S. dioceses are under financial stress from declining attendance and multimillion-dollar lawsuits in sex-abuse scandals, religious scholars say.

    As I noticed a few months ago, please notice that 'What's in your pocket'
    CapitolOne is a corporate sponsor of this 'Making Gay and Lesbian Parents Proud'
    site, according to the banner I see at the top of the page.

    Speaking of San Francisco, where gay adoption by Catholic agencies is
    being reviewed, the site sees this Georgetown statement as supporting their
    aims, whereas I can also support the facts in the Georgetown statement. Two
    different views of the same reality:

    “For some Catholics, this position on gay adoption will be disconcerting. But for those seeking a more conservative path, it will be a good thing," said Chester Gillis, chair of the theology department at Georgetown University. “For those who take their cues from American society, American laws and so forth, they will be uncomfortable with this. They will be forced in some way to choose between their church and their country or their state.”

    When did all this get legal? For some time I have been aware that D.C. had
    passed some law allowing gay adoption, but D.C. is a strange government. This
    sites lists a whole bunch of States that supposedly allow the adoptions:

    California,
    Connecticut,
    Illinois,
    New Jersey,
    New Mexico,
    New York,
    Oregon,
    Vermont,
    Washington D.C.,
    Massachusetts
