Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
I know personally a number of same-sex couples who have children, some adopted, some though artificial insemination with a surrogate mother. These families are normal in every way, with the exception of the fact that the parents are the same gender. The children have plenty of contact with both genders through aunts or uncles or friends and they are just normal kids with no particular psychological problems. A few of the kids are fully aware that their families are a bit unusual by the "standards" of some, but they pay little attention, identify it as the prejudice it is, and shrug it off.

GfS more than illustrates his lack of knowledge and understanding.

After reading his litany of misperceptions and misconceptions about life in general and this issue in particular, I have changed my mind about GfS. His pompous and incoherently presented arguments (if, indeed, they can even be elevated to the status of "arguments" instead of simply hate-filled and bigoted rants), have caused me to change my mind about him.

I feel sorry for him. Anyone that mentally impaired is an object of pity

His petty and prejudice rages have angered and disgusted me since he first showed up on this forum. How can a human beingóespecially one who claims to be a family counseloróbe so rigidly judgmental? God help his clients if he actually is!

As Dante said of those whose petty minds and rigid attitudes have condemned them to the lowest rungs of Hell:

"Let us look but once, then pass on."
