    Nope, I don't have anything to back it up as nobody knows what the future holds but the fact that in the past, homosexuality wasn't accepted but now it is tells us something, doesn't it?
    You never know- incest, polygamy and bestiality may be legalised in the future. Homosexuality took time for it to be accepted into society.
    By the way, have you heard about that mother who wanted to marry her son because she claimed that they 'fell in love with each other'. Cases like this just show how the world's society is changing.
    And if we'd sat here 2000 years ago, you could change that round - homosexuality was accepted and now isn't. Still, what you're arguing is because this happened, unrelated thing you don't like could happen - those who opposed interracial marriages said the same thing 50 years ago - it's as wrong now as it was then.

    What I don't understand is why polyamorous relationships and incestuous relationships aren't legal given the fact that they can be consensual (obviously nothing lacking consent should be legalised when it comes to romantic relationships).

    By 'nature', I mean the normal and natural way in which God designed a male and a female to have a child. Two dads having a son, therefore, is not natural and so is going against nature.
    If it was made that way by god, it's not natural.

    You're not God to decide that.

    God just spoke to me in a vision and said that he has no authority, but if he did he'd agree with the post in question.
    Cthulu spoke to me and said it was ok and that homosexuality and gay marriage wouldn't lead to the end of all things as we know it. But then I stubbed my toe so......slippery slope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111111ONE

    Incest is going on now and just like homosexuality is now accepted, incest could too in the future. That's how I'm linking it.

    Oh absolutely. You cannot approach this issue from a 'rights' perspective it is far more important that we consider the needs of the child above anything else.. That said gay parenting is generally exceptional for two reasons: Firstly any gay couple wishing to start a family must do so very deliberately, and secondly in most circumstances there is a vetting process for them as parents simply because of the avenues they must go down (adoption etc.)

    Oh I agree. I am completely in favour of gay parenting. I simply hate this notion of having children being a "right" that gets bandied about.

    Because you've made a comparison without even proving a valuable link between the two. The two are not comparable, unless you're desperate. Which you clearly are.

    You think that when a child is born they are born completely clean like they've just had a bath?

    My mum had a horrible mother, clearly lots of things came close and even exceeded her mother's love.

    So, nothing credible beyond personal opinion then?

    Fathers on the whole are amazing as well, particularly when they really really want their children.
