Skip to comments.Romney: Gay couples should have right to adopt
Posted on 05/10/2012 6:38:57 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (R) said Thursday that he believes gay couples should be allowed to adopt children, even as he reiterated his view that marriage is defined as a relationship between a man and a woman.
In an interview with Neil Cavuto of Fox Business Network, Romney was asked whether he believes the gay marriage debate is a new civil rights movement, as some Democrats have framed the issue.
I dont see it in that light, Romney responded. I believe my record as a person who has supported civil rights is strong and powerful. At the same time, I believe that marriage has been defined the same way for literally thousands of years by virtually every civilization in history and that marriage is by its definition a relationship between a man and woman.
He added that if two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, even want to adopt a child in my state, individuals of the same sex are able to adopt children. In my view, thats something which people have the right to do, but to call that marriage is, in my view, a departure from the real meaning of the word.

Why do the DEMOS cling onto this loser?
SURELY they could run someone else in THEIR primary as well!
The 2012 Republican National Convention will be held at the Tampa Bay Times Forum from August 27-30, 2012,
and will host 2,286 delegates and 2,125 alternate delegates from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five territories.
The convention will also include a global audience that will witness a "convention without walls" thanks to our Internet and social media efforts.
You are right about the reality of adoption today: most birth mothers “pick” the family where their child is placed, and many stay in touch thereafter. But the reality and the perception are quite different. When you ask women who have had abortions why they did not consider adoption(and, believe me, I have asked), they usually answer that it would involve placing the child in the home of unknown strangers who might well molest and abuse him or her.
That’s a big difference between conservatives and liberals like Obama and Romney. We have faith in our fellow Americans. And faith in God. They believe that government (kings) should make our decisions for us.
Sad, isn’t it?
So, Mitt, shoving one’s face up another’s anus in search of sexual pleasure is okay with you?
Is sticking your pee-pee up another man’s poo-poo then licking the dipstick is an okay, legitimate love making ritual?
You need to get real or this nation is going to be truly lost as you’ve either lost your moral bearings or you never had any in the first place!
Mitt, would you want your grandkids adopted by two sodomites?
This is the moosh we came to know in MA.
Sorry to inflict him on you.
It is evil and Romney’s nuts. These elites are a menace to the nation. All the science points away from homosexual adoption as being in the best interests of the child.
This is absurd. What’s with our leadership? I suspect they’re so sexualized and creepy that we’re being run by people whose humanity most of us wouldn’t recognize. Money, sex, power - they serve the god of this world and he’s a devil.
Mind control and cover story all wrapped up in an innocent little human life. Despicable.
