Offering some good news to social conservatives, the “gay adoption” ban in the state of Arkansas passed easily on November 4th.
The final vote tally will be approximately 57-43%. Arkansas already has a ban on gay marriage.
Legitimate studies show that two-parent households result in more happy, healthy children than either gay households or single-parent households. That is the difficult reality that gay couples need to swallow. A nurturing mother and a decisive father are still nature’s way.
Do not use this thread to show incomparable studies that lump single-family and heterosexual couples together. Those are apples and oranges studies that are promoted by social engineers with an agenda. I wish gay couples were as successful at child-rearing than heterosexual couples because kids would be better off if it were only true and the adoption rules could be consistent.
For that reason alone, I oppose gay adoption even though I support gay “marriage” or civil unions. This is not a matter of “rights” for parents. Worrying about what parents want is a habit nurtured in egomania. All that really matters in the altruistic issue of adoption is the best interest of children. Moms and dads are best.
So “Arkansas Measure 1″ passes easily and gay adoption becomes prohibited in the state. It seems a strange result in a Democrat year, but it is the right result for children. And while economic conservatives lost in 2008, social conservatives are still on top in most areas of the country.
