Check out this very interesting article on children being raised in homosexual households, compared with children who “belong to the state.” (It’s American. duh!) Is it better for a child to be in a group home, or in a same-sex couple’s home?
Here are some characteristics of the homosexual lifestyle the article describes that are inconsistent with raising children:
- Homosexual Promiscuity — Studies indicate that the average male homosexual has hundreds of sex partners in his lifetime, a lifestyle that is difficult for even “committed” homosexuals to break free of and which is not conducive to a healthy and wholesome atmosphere for the raising of children.
- Promiscuity among Homosexual Couples — Even in those homosexual relationships in which the partners consider themselves to be in a committed relationship, the meaning of “committed” typically means something radically different than in heterosexual marriage.
- Rate of Intimate Partner Violence — A little-reported fact is that homosexual and lesbian relationships are far more violent than are traditional married households.
- Sexual Identity Confusion — The claim that homosexual households do not “recruit” children into the homosexual lifestyle is refuted by the growing evidence that children raised in such households are more likely to engage in sexual experimentation and in homosexual behavior.
This list gives much to think about and seems to argue very much in favour of those who disagree with gay couples adopting children. Yet, the author ends the article with more to think about for Christians.
“So where does that leave us? Can we legitimately argue against homosexual adoptions? We can, but the truth is, it wouldn’t even be an issue if Christians in America were serious about the biblical mandate (James 1:27) to care for the orphan.”
There’s some straight truth for you! But are we listening?
