The Selfish Side of Homosexuality.
What about the children?

While I was reading this morning I ran across an article that mentioned Rosie O'Donnell. It made this Quote,
" Homosexual activist Rosie O'Donnell admitted on the show her son wishes he had a daddy, but Rosie brushed aside his concerns and told him he would become a dad when he grew up."


I thought How Selfish! Being a Dad and having a Dad are 2 entirely different things. This child will miss out on the bonding enrichment between father and son. His psychological make-up will be unprepared for the role of fatherhood, not having a role model. He will relive his childhood with his child, not neccessarily a bad thing, having a fun parent is great for kids, however, there is going to be a time where he will need to stand back and stop being the adult sibling and be the father. This is where the conflict will be.

It is bad enough these things take place in the heterosexual world, (children raised by single parents) boys growing up without a strong father figure in their life, struggle with being fathers, drawing the line between being the parent sibling, and the parent. The push to normalize homosexual relationships are further destroying the lives of children and future adults.
To make homosexuality normal is an attempt by some very selfish people to bend and shape the world for their own needs, rather then the needs of the ones they claim to love.

A hard look at some of the struggles that kids face, YOU DON'T HEAR ABOUT THESE ON THE NIGHTLY NEWS REPORTS.


Woman (23) California, heterosexual:.... parents divorced when "I was three, so
I’ve always known my mother as a lesbian.... I always knew what a lesbian was, and I always knew I had a choice as to what I would be.... My mom has
always been in the public eye. She’s a political activist... one of the founding
members of Ms magazine with Gloria Steinem.... I am doing some recovery work and I go to anonymous meetings and I’m not really anonymous. I don’t feel
comfortable in meetings where everyone knows my mother. Being known in that way is difficult.... When I was eight, my best friend was a girl called M. We did
everything together: played on the soccer team, the bowling team, stayed
overnight at each other’s houses nearly every night – everything. One night my
mom had a party, and M’s mother suddenly stormed in and tore M out of the house
and told M that she couldn’t be friends with me.... My mother suspects that M’s
mother saw two women kissing on the porch.... once in junior high school
my mother ask me to be on television with her, about something to do with gay
rights, and I said no. They ended up showing a photo of me anyway. A girl from
school, a real bully, saw the program and stood on the front steps of the school
and started screaming that my mother was a faggot....
My grandmother
"definitely doesn’t want me to be like [my mother].... I don’t want to have
kids."


Girl (7) California:.... "live with my mother now, but other
times I've lived with lots of women.... It seems like everyone who has a dad also has a brother or a sister. It seems like lesbian mothers usually have one kid.... I don’t tell other kids about my mom. At school it kind of bothers me because when we play or tell stories, there’s always a mom and a dad.... What really bothers me is when my friends come over and them they get into [asking me] if I know my dad. So I tell them no, not really.... I ask my mom about my dad but... you see, I wonder about him. I don't know where he is. I don’t think my mom knows either. It’s just hard to know that other kids have dads. Everybody else has a dad. I don’t know if I want to get married and I don’t know if I want to have kids."

Girl (10) Kansas City: ..."One day when I was about six, I woke up in the middle of the night from a bad dream, and I looked in the bedroom and saw R and my mom sleeping together. The next day I was trying to hint at things because I
knew something was up. So I asked them if they wore underwear to bed. They couldn’t understand why I asked that. They said, ‘why do you want to know?’ They never told me either. They wouldn’t say anything about it.... I was sort of scared. It
felt funny. I didn't know if it was OK or not. And I didn’t feel comfortable
talking with them about it. I just found out they are gay, officially, two years
ago.... I never talk to my sister about it, because we don’t feel comfortable
talking about.... I consider this a really big secret. I don't feel like anyone
is trustworthy. I don’t think that if my best friend knew, she would ever come
over to spend the night….

Girl (10) San Francisco: ....lives "with my two moms… D… lives upstairs with her girlfriend. L lives downstairs and she works at a downtown job. I live both upstairs and downstairs. I didn’t know my dad until ... last year.... he lives with his lover Tim nearby.... Before I was born, L and D lived together, but after they broke up they decided they both needed their own space. I think they broke up before D was pregnant. D has a girlfriend now, and L said she might want to have a girlfriend soon... I have a sister who lives in New York. L had her a long time ago and she gave her up for adoption.... When I get older I might feel more comfortable telling people. Right now I don’t really know what would make things easier... When I grow up I want to be a writer.... Like I might take my turtle – his name is Speedy
Gonzales – and say that he has Playboy magazines under his shell and write a
story about that....
~Why is a 10 year old referencing playboy mag?~

Boy (12) Oakland:.....At my old school when I’d get sick, the nurse would say ‘Who’s this other person on your emergency card?’ I never answered, and I hoped she’d stop asking…. [He explains to the school chums that] one was my aunt. ... But it’s hard sometimes. I don't know what the kids would do if they knew.... When I was younger, I went to women’s festivals with my mother. There’s this kind of famous picture of me and my biological mom. She’s on stage with long hair and her breasts are hanging out and she’s got me in her arms. I always try to hide that picture,... It’s kind of embarrassing.

Woman (25) Massachusetts, homosexual experience: ...I was
having trouble spending the weekdays with lesbians, who discussed the evils of
the patriarchy and the value of women-only space, and then spending an orthodox
Shabbos with the other side of my family... I would cry upon leaving my mother’s
and I felt awkward in my father’s community. [Mom lost a custody battle, but]
When the verdict was announced, my mother and I tried to run out of the
courthouse, but everyone chased us and a huge fistfight ensued. Police officers,
lawyers, and lesbians were all yelling and punching each other in the lobby….I
was discouraged from having male friends, and any female friends were to be made aware that I lived in a lesbian household before I could have them over.... I
experienced separatism as a constant level of anger and negativity.... men were
called mutants, straight women were considered disowned sisters who wasted
woman-energy on men, and other lesbians were sometimes accused of being
government spies sent to infiltrate and undermine the community.
Anyone who was
not like us was evil...
[at age 14] I moved out and went to live in a lesbian
boarding house.... I also learned to fear the world’s judgment, to see
relationships as temporary, to be distrustful, and to withhold communication as
a means of self- protection and punishment…. I see evidence of how emotionally
detached I’ve become.… L and my mother… explained their parenting style by
saying that the patriarchy was pushing me hard in one direction, and they wanted
to counteract that pressure by pushing just as hard in the other. I’m lucky I
didn’t get squashed. I… was left with no appealing role models. I haven’t known
who or what to strive to become.... When I have kids, I hope to do some things
differently than she did…"

Girl (15) Florida: "I have a problem... my mom’s gay... this thing with my mom is a big deal for me.... most of the time it’s really great. It’s only when my mom embarrasses me or when ... the people at school – give me a hard time.... Sometimes I feel like my mom really looks different, like she doesn’t look like other moms to me. It’s the way she dresses. I feel like lesbianism just reeks off her… at school, people make jokes about dykes and fags... then there are the hard times, like when my mom had a lover move in with us, one that I did not like. They’re not together anymore,... she was really out, she had lesbian bumper stickers all over her car, and she looked like a dyke: I couldn’t stand it when she would try to hug my mom in
front of my friends!... Once I told my mom that she’d have to choose between me
and her lover... She said she wished I wouldn’t make her do that.
I couldn’t
believe that she didn’t just say, ‘oh, of course, I’d choose you.’ Now it was
one thing for her lover to move in with us, but it was another for her to go on
the Oprah Winfrey show and come out to the whole world without telling me first.
That’s how all my friends found out about her and my mom.... it got all over
school. That must have been one of the worst experiences of my life.
People
teased me and stuck mean notes in my locker….

Boy (10): at 9 "I really flipped out....I think if kids at school found out about my mom, they would tease me.... I went to the gay and lesbian parade. I saw men in women’s costumes and women in men’s costumes. It was weird. This made me confused.... It wasn’t fun for me to find out my mom was a lesbian."

This one is confusing, if you can keep up...

Girl (7) adopted Indian girl: "My family is L, my mother, and Z, my other mother... and A, who is L’s lover.... Sometimes all the moving gets confusing... I used to have two lesbian mothers, but now I only have one…. Because Z isn’t a lesbian anymore.... Z has a boyfriend now.... I say daddies are as dumb as bubble gum. I like L
being with A because I get to snuggle with them in the nighttime....
I
might get married. I might not like men. I might be a lesbian. I might like to be with both, I don’t really know yet. There are a lot of choices."

Girl (7) adopted, sister of girl above:
"When I was a little girl my two moms were lovers; then they broke up. Then L
fell in love with someone else. Now L is lovers with A. Z is lovers with a
man.... all my friends know I have two moms, but some of them think that one of
them is my mom and one of them is my sister’s mom. But that’s not true. Both of
them are my moms..... I don’t want to have a father.... When we were little we
used to go back and forth and back and forth all the time, but now we stay at
each house longer and it’s much better. It used to be exhausting….I don’t know if I want to be a lesbian."

Girl (15), Michigan, heterosexual, with gay father and lesbian mother:...it’s hard having two gay parents, ...At first, I thought my mom would love me more if I was gay....

Woman (21) student from New York City, bisexual: When I was seven my "mother called me and T, my brother, into her bedroom. We saw A – the woman who had moved into our apartment two week before – lying next to mother in the queensize bed. Mother rolled onto her side and said "I want you to know that A and I are lesbians. ...Mother could never stay tied down that long. She changed lovers every year to eighteen months. We moved a lot because mother always lived with her lovers.... Every year she apologized for being a lesbian, for making us keep her secret, and for changing lovers like shelf paper...

Boy (10) Florida: "I have a lot of friends who are lesbian.... When I visit my dad he always says that it’s wrong for my mom to be a lesbian.… He says he hates C and that he doesn’t like my mother very much…. No one at school knows about my mom. I think my friends would feel pretty bad if they knew…. I went to the Southern Music festival with my mom... I see a lot of naked women there...

Woman (19) student in Wisconsin, heterosexual:...Growing up is hard enough thing to do, and I sometimes resented my mother for making it harder.... none of what I did mattered, because of what my mother ‘had become,’ boys thought my mother was reason enough not to date me...

Man (27), heterosexual with homosexual experience: "Lesbians
should not fill their children with their own fears and hatred. I say this after
considering the causes of needless pain in my past, and my troubles
understanding the present....I met lesbian friends of my mother’s who also had
kids.... I do recall our wishing our mothers were more attentive to us than to
each other. We kids would get together and have sex, males or females in any
combination – unbeknownst to our parents...Since my parents had sex with the
same sex (my mother with other women, my stepfather with me
),
I had not
understood that homosexuality was wrong. Also, at the time I couldn’t figure out
my own sexuality, because I was having sex with people of both sexes...I was
being exposed to damaging experiences... I was twelve at the time – would be
left with other lesbians who said horrible things to us. I distinctly remember a
woman telling me, ‘you are a most despicable thing on earth because you are
nothing but a future man’.... for me, this kind of hatred ruined my life....

Girl (6) San Francisco, result of artificial insemination: "I found out
that my mom is a lesbian the first time I went to a gay and lesbian parade. I
was about four…. I really want to know him [her father]... Sometimes they [kids]
tease me about it because all of them have dads... They think that one of my
mom’s is a fake mom.... I’m different than all the other kids in my class....
I’m the only kid in school with a lesbian mother... Sometimes I get called names
like ‘No-Dadhead’ and that makes me feel bad….

Girl (13) San Francisco: "I told people [at school] I didn’t have a dad, and they started laughing... none of those kids know about my mothers.... If it did get around, I think I would be treated differently because of my mom’s sexuality.... …. it’s really hard for kids of lesbians… I don’t know if I’m gay or straight, but I don’t feel
pressure to be either way.... I’ve liked most of the women that my mom has been
in relationships with…. right now I need more attention than she is giving me….
I spend one weekend a month with one woman, and another one I see two times a
week. Sometimes I wish there was a second person in the house so
when my mom goes out there would be someone else to watch me."


Girl (5), North Carolina:..... some friends ask me questions about my moms, and I get embarrassed and scared to answer. And sometimes I’m mad that I don’t have brothers and sisters."

Girl (13) Hawaii: ...... some kids at school have teased me about my mother being gay, and this makes me mad.... because of my mother’s work [edits a gay newsletter] we’ve received crank calls.... It’s scary, and for this reason I sometimes wish my mother was straight. And it’s difficult to bring people to the house.

Woman (39) California, homosexual: "In my memories, I’m always looking
for my mother and finding her with women doing things I don’t understand...
Sometimes they blame me for opening a door that wasn’t even locked.... [at about
the age of 10] I noticed a door that I hadn’t yet opened. Inside I saw a big
bed. My mother sat up suddenly and stared at me. She was with B... and then B
shouted, ‘you fucking sneaking brat’... my mother never said a word.... my mother showed me that lesbianism is a possibility."

Girl (9): "My biological mother is S and my other mother is L....Once in a while I wish my dad was in my life, because I never knew him as my father…. Sometimes I get angry because I can’t tell anybody about my mom. The kids at school would laugh.... they say awful things about lesbians... then they make fun of me.… having lesbian mothers is nothing to laugh about. ... I have told my [mother] that she has made my life difficult."

Boy (14) London, heterosexual: "Mum...used [a man as a donor]." ...I
missed having a relationship with a man when I was growing up…. then I do wish I had my Dad around more….

Boy (12), Brighton, England: Mother was artificially inseminated by a gay man. "Mum... has had several girlfriends in my lifetime.... I don’t go around saying that I’ve got two mums…. The kids at school were asking me whether I’d got a dad. I wanted S to come… so that they could see that I did…. [Mum’s sister is also a lesbian.]… If we are sitting in a restaurant eating, she’ll say, ‘I want you to know about all these sex things.’ And she’ll go on about everything, just shouting it out.... sometimes when mum embarrasses me, I think, ‘Oh god I wish I had a dad.’… Been to every Gay Pride march. Last year, while attending "we went up to a field to play
football, when two men came up to us. One of them started touching me. We just
ran. I didn’t want to go this year because of that"


Woman (20) from London, sexual preference uncertain: "All my life I’ve lived in a communal household.... At the moment I live with my dad, T, L, and S." Mother split up with dad when she was 2, and died when she was 5. "because my Dad’s gay, I’ve also had the added benefit of a positive experience of homosexuality…. I feel comfortable with gay men and can enjoy myself at Gay Pride…. His homosexuality influenced me to question my sexuality more than I might have
done.


Woman (19) from Scotland, heterosexual: Father was pastor, became gay when she was aged 11, divorced his wife. Respondent went to live with him at age 16. "It was a difficult time for me. I used to find myself crying, mostly because of the responsibility of knowing my Dad was gay…At the moment, I’m heterosexual…. Being a father isn’t great for my Dad’s image…. When we go together to the supermarket and I call him Dad, he tries to shush me up… He’s serious when he says that… He thinks men won’t look at him if they know he’s got a daughter…

Woman (21) homosexual:....… The court welfare officer wrote that I was idolizing my mother and that I was gay because Mum was…I was also extremely heterosexually promiscuous. That was the way I coped at the time... I was very lonely, made suicide attempts... I used to self-mutilate...

Woman (24) heterosexual: Both parents were homosexual. "our family life wasn’t great. There were a lot of arguments and we were always going to family counseling…. I wanted my father to be that perfect dad that all the other kids have. I didn’t want a dad who’s different, who’s gay and who sleeps with men…. On top of everything else that made me different, I suddenly had two gay parents. It was just about tolerable to have one gay parent, but not two. The whole thing embarrassed me. I felt angry with both of them… I wanted to punish and hurt her…. [Mom and her current partner J] talk to me about my life, ask me why I want to get married…. [Respondent moved out on her own when she was 16, butI had to live with my mother for a month, and that helped me learn an awful lot about the lesbian lifestyle. When I learned that both my parents were gay, what I needed to clarify was whether I am gay…. I think she’d be quite chuffed [i.e., pleased] if I
turned around and said, ‘Mum I’ve met a woman.’… She always tries it on, ‘K, why don’t you try women?’… I think she’d be quite pleased if I did…. [Her mother’s]
become an ardent feminist… She’s become anti-men…. I used to not say anything
until I had to. I’ve found that it’s like a big secret that I’m keeping."

Woman (19) Brighton, England, heterosexual, single mother: Mother became
lesbian and divorced her father at age 3. Her stepmother "abused" her. "My
sexuality isn’t influenced by my Mum’s at all. My Mum encouraged us to have
relationships, but she didn’t mind whether it was with boys or girls.... My
parents are liberals. They’ve been easy about me having sexual relationships
with my boyfriends. As a result, here I am with a baby at the age of nineteen!… I wish that my parents had been stricter. I didn’t get any messages
from them that what I was reading or hearing was wrong….


Woman (20) bisexual: Mother married a man, he turned out to be gay. She married again, and the new man was gay – the father of the respondent. "When I was about ten, Daddy came to look after us in the flat which Mummy went away on a retreat. Daddy brought a beautiful young man with him who was about twenty. At the time, my Dad was forty. There were in bed together when I came in…. [Mother became a lesbian. One of her lovers] used to stay the night and I got annoyed with her prancing around in the morning without her clothes on. I didn’t actually want to see her body. It felt like she was taking liberties in my house…. I wasn’t interested in boys at all.... I kept trying to proselytize little girls, saying it’s all right to be gay.

There is this recurrent theme I keep seeing, The CHOICE in being gay, the hardcore feminism,- very man hating, and the struggles, pain and embarrassment that kids go through because of their parents. Alot of them silently scream, they can't talk about it.

Further research found a report by Dr. Sotirios Sarantakos, an associate professor of sociology in Australia, who ran an investigation comparing the school performance of 58 children who were being raised by homosexual couples with children being raised by 58 married and 58 cohabiting parents.

In language skills,
“the average score of the children of homosexual couples in all items of
assessment was lower than the average of the children of the other two groups,
and it was more pronounced in the areas of verbal skills, vocabulary and
composition” (Sarantakos, p. 24). On a 9 point scale the children of marrieds
scored 7.7, the children of cohabiting heterosexuals 6.8, and the children of
homosexuals 5.5.

In mathematics
“the children of homosexual couples in the area of problem solving was
satisfactory (6.9), their score in basic mathematical skills was 5.6 (which is
below the average score of all students of 7.1); and their ability in doing
operations was lower still, their score being 4.9, while the average score of
all students was 6.5” (p. 25). As with language skills, the overall scores were
7.9, 7.0, and 5.5 respectively.

In social studies,
the children “of homosexual couples tend to perform slightly better
than the children of the other two groups. The teachers reported that their
interest in social issues and their involvement in projects related to social
studies were very strong, their knowledge and comprehension of relevant issues
above average, and the quality of their work relatively high... their average
scores [were] 7.6, 7.3, and 7.0 for the children of homosexual couples, married
couples and cohabiting couples respectively....

The interest and involvement in sport activities...
with the children of heterosexual cohabiting couples following closely the
children of married couples, and with children of homosexual couples far behind
[scores were 8.9, 8.3, & 5.9 respectively].... children of homosexual
couples did not express an interest in group sport to the same degree as other
children; secondly, because of their ‘rather passive’ orientation to sport; and,
thirdly, because of the type of sport interests they chose to pursue — when they
did so.... the teachers added that many children avoided involvement in group
activities of any kind, including group work in class and project work in teams,
preferring to work alone; they were considered by their teachers to be
‘introverts’ and ‘loners.’ Experiences in their personal and family life were
thought to have motivated them to avoid working with and relying on others, and
to mistrust other children — in the case of children of lesbians, males in
particular (p. 25).

The classwork behavior of all children was similar....
while the teacher was present. In this sense,... these children were not
different. Nevertheless, more children of homosexual couples were reported to be
timid, reserved, unwilling to work in a team, unwilling to talk about family
life, holidays and about out-of-school activities in general, to feel
uncomfortable when having to work with students of a sex different to the parent
they lived with, and to be characterized as loners and as introverts. To a
certain extent these feelings were reciprocated by a number of the students in
class, who preferred not to work with them, to sit next to them, or work
together on a project (p. 25).
In most cases children of homosexual couples
ended up being by themselves, skipping rope or drawing, while the others were
involved in team sport. In extreme cases, they have been ridiculed by the other
children for some personal habits or beliefs, or for the sexual preferences of
their parents.... The averages of sociability scores for the three groups of
children, as reported by the teachers, were 7.5 for the children of married
couples, 6.5 for the children of cohabiting couples and 5.0 for the children of
homosexual couples;...
When two or three children of homosexual parents were
attending the same school, and if they happened to know about their family
circumstances (and in most cases they did), they tended to group together and to
spend their time inside and outside the class together. Such incidents were
reported to ‘make these kids happier’, but also to generate negative reactions
on the part of the other school children.... Another point raised by many
teachers is that children of homosexual parents,... tend to be more overly
polite and formal, careful in their behaviour and actions, generally distant,
and to show stronger feelings of respect to authority,...

The children of homosexuals were more frequently reported to have
identity problems
. “Girls of gay fathers were reported to demonstrate
more ‘boyish’ attitudes and behavior than girls of heterosexuals parents. Most
young boys of lesbian mothers were reported to be more effeminate in their
behaviour and mannerisms than boys of heterosexual parents.... In general,
children of homosexual couples were described by teachers as more expressive,
more effeminate (irrespective of their gender) and ‘more confused about their
gender’.... (p. 26) Assessment: The Sarantakos material lends weight to the
belief that being raised by homosexuals leads to gender role confusion in their
children. ...........

Sarantakos’ Conclusions
Family environments of married
couples may be more positive, supportive, rich, rewarding, secure and guiding
than the family environments of cohabiting heterosexual and homosexual couples.
(p. 29)

Overall Assessment: Relative to married couples’ children,
the children of homosexuals appeared to be disadvantaged — and in ways that
concern society. While they appeared to be reasonably well behaved in school,
they also appeared to have done less well academically in the more important
subjects — language and mathematics.

Further — possibly because of lesser parental involvement —
homosexual couples’ children seem to more frequently desire to abandon schooling
to ‘escape’ from their parental home. Their motivation to form their own
households as rapidly as possible may be related to the facts that they suffer
in interactions with peers, are often socially isolated, are not infrequently
called names, and sometimes have their own sexuality questioned.
Married
couples’ children did better than the children of homosexuals in almost every
comparison.

The Sarantakos study provides an independent test of the homosexual parenting
question. Sarantakos apparently was unaware of this dispute, and it appears that
both sides in the U.S. and Great Britain were equally unaware of Sarantakos.
This ‘hidden study’ turns out to have important implications for the homosexual
parenting debate.

One Paper from France, which writes from a pro- homosexual perspective cites,
"watch out for those troublesome teenage years. "Early adolescence is going
to be a rough spot and probably a little more so than for the general
population. This is because early adolescents are so rigidly sex-role
stereotyped. Junior high schools in North America are filled with some of the
most ‘butch’ and ‘femme’ people around." If parents are different from the
societal sex-role stereotype, says Gonsiorek, "it might be difficult for a while
- but most kids get through that. I think the challenge for gay and lesbian
parents is not to overreact. Because no matter how a parent might be different,
the child will have a problem with it..."

Surviving this period may be like walking a tightrope, says Gonsiorek -
"responding to it without overreacting to it. The parent should be mindful that
the child may be doing it because it works and not necessarily because of the
lesbian/gay content issue. But at the same time, the child may have realistic
difficulties having a gay and/or lesbian parent, mainly because of their peer
group."

" It’s psychologically-maturing for the child when he or she realizes
that what the adult world has to offer is complicated shades of grey."

Unfortuneately Our world is full of grey, where as most issues are Black and White. Right and Wrong. The homosexuals would have you believe in NO MORAL ABSOLUTES.

Not even citing the Biblical references on the issue, I will cite a Natural one, "Everything in Nature is Balanced. Everything in Nature reproduces "Naturally". From the trees, to the grasses, to Single Cell Amoebas, to birds and wildlife. Life goes on "naturally." If the whole world were homosexual, there would be NO world. There would Be NO Reproduction without intervention. Two Men, or Two Women cannot "naturally" reproduce.

Lifesite had a special report citing the problems encountered with homosexual couples and children.
"According to The Canadian Psychological Association
"studies have shown almost no difference in sexual preference or in psychosocial
development for children of same-sex parents." On what basis did the Association
reach such a conclusion? Certainly, it could not have looked at recent findings
in social science journals to reach this conclusion. If the Association had
troubled itself to look at the current literature, it would have, in all
decency, been disturbed by their conclusions, and, with professional integrity,
issued quite a different statement.According to the American Journal of Diseases
of Children and The Advocate, close to 60% of adolescent AIDS sufferers were
infected by adult bisexual and homosexual men. Thousands of these American boys are now dead. The same is probably true for other western countries like Canada,
where many young runaway boys end up prostituting themselves for men.

According to a paper published by Professor Bradley P.
Hayton, there are serious concerns about the effects of a homosexual lifestyle
on children. Professor Hayton states:Homosexuals... model a poor view of
marriage to children. They are taught by example and belief that marital
relationships are transitory and most sexual in nature. Sexual relationships are
primarily for pleasure rather than procreation. And they are taught that
monogamy in a marriage is not the norm [and] should be discouraged if one wants
a good 'marital' relationship. The reason that same-sex parenting is detrimental
to the well being of children is due to several factors:

1. Higher Incidence of Violence
2. Higher Incidence of Mental Health Problems
3. Reduced Life Expectancy
4. Higher Incidence of Same-sex Orientation
5. Greater Risk of Sexual Involvement with Parents
6. Greater Risk of Social or Psychological Problems
7. Higher Incidence of Child Molestation


It appeaars that schools attempts at normalizing this dangerous behaviour are doing so to make things easier and permissivve for all those involved. By calling something wrong, "Right" does not change the fact that it is wrong. Morally, Physically, Naturally and Biblically.
