Romney: Gay couples should have right to adopt
The Washington Post ^ | May 10, 2012 | Felicia Sonmez

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 don’t 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, that’s 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.”

I could go on. Do you remember Paula Poundstone molesting her adopted daughter?

The fact is that gays are attracted to underaged sex. They can’t reproduce. So they have to get their hands on someone else’s child. Before 8 or it’s too late, NAMBLA (the North American Man Boy Love Association) is a clear cut example of that. Any person who identifies themselves by a sexual act has something wrong with their brains. The Bible talks about it. Gays are said to have reprobate minds, minds that do not function properly, minds that are not like normal people’s minds. Yet, you want to allow them to take other people’s children into their homes and attempt to raise them.

I refuse to support placing a child in their care and subjecting them to the possibility of exposure to every kind of abuse so gays can feel good about themselves and their deviant behavior.

Simply put, the greater the demand for those who want to adopt = decreased demand for those who are killed.

Only if they can sell them, and so far they can't. They can go to China or Africa like everyone else, I guess.

we will try to save babies from murder even if the state puts up roadblocks.

Are you demonstrating in front of abortion clinics to stop abortion? You are not trying to save anyone, you are trying to help yourself.

Romney is an idiot and doesn't have a clue about the issues involved.

Romney is a homosexualist chameleon.

But, yet, we are supposed to, according to many FReepers, ignore this and vote for this chameleon because otherwise we'll be responsible for re-electing Øbama?

I have yet to have somebody convince me how Willard is at all better than Barry Soetoro.

The most convincing argument I've heard is about the permanence of SCOTUS appointments. Naturally, they forget about Harry Blackmun and John Paul Stevens when they make that argument, but...

Mitt has this problem ~ he simply can’t feel your pain. He’s not like other men

He'll certainly have an agenda.

A clue ~ you know how there are Catholic politicians who don't ever want to be accused of being anti-protestant, although they probably are, so to compensate they bend over backwards to let what they view as the Protestant majority have its way on some issues ~ e.g. abortion and reproduction technology.

They ignore what their own church tells them is right and wrong when it comes to legislation and the courts.

We call them CINOs or Catholics in Name Only.

Catholics on Free Republic, where they are free to voice Catholic and traditional Christian viewpoints, never praise the CINO crowd for cowtowing to the imaginary Protestant Leftwingtard majority. The Protestants don't praise those people either (For long).

What we have with Romney is someone who is bending over backwards to let that same imaginary Protestant Leftwingtard majority know that he is "not like them" ~ the folks in Utah!

He's also bowing to the crowd in the New York media establishment who aren't even Christians ~ certainly not Protestants.

This is a delusion these guys have. They simply don't believe that in the rest of America ~ the real America, including "Flyover Country' ~ you don't have to bend over for these people.

Romney, Pelosi, Biden, even Giuliani and others operate under a very mistaken notion. MItt's so bad he's telling us to adopt out our babies to homosexuals now even before he's gotten the Convention's approval.

As the campaign moves along he'll find more reasons why he has to give into his imaginary majority and he'll come up with other silliness ~ maybe selling organs.

Doesn't he have any campaign advisors who can inform him all this homosexual cr*p is not going down well with the electorate?

Romney has been doing his darndest to sough off the Conservative base himself ~ he imagines we are a hopeless minority with no relevance.

Is that ignorance or self-pity in which he is indulging?

You know some of his good buds from his primary campaign 4 years ago ended up working with McCain and they fought Sarah Palin harder than they did Obama.

It's not any different this time ~ Romney is in a cluster of people who hate Conservatives ~ they don't let him think any other way.

Could Mitt perhaps be anti-Catholic?

Anyone have any information on that topic?

When they leave the door open to evolve you find out they don't particularly care about the issue ~ might even find it personally intrusive.

Anyone know if this guy ever said he loved his wife in public? He refers to his many years of marriage, but that's just a Mormon thing ~ kind of a cultural tic ~ but how married does he view himself.

We have a relative who adopted two children ~ it took years and lots of money.

There is currently no surplus of legally adoptable children in this country.

Singles may adopt in DC. I worked with a woman who did just that ~ she was also a military reservist. Once she became a "mother' she had to drop out of the Reserves simply because that schedule and work conflicted with the child's needs.

She wasn't gay ~ she was simply not sexually inclined, interested, or apparently structured. That's a good 5% of any human population like that (about 50 times as many of them as there are gays BTW).

These folks frequently show up in public legislative hearings on the subject of foster care and adoption.

The 7 RINO candidates shared the vote in general and helped him hide out until he could target the 3 lifelong Republican Conservatives state by state with negative ads aimed just at them.

Yes, the old "Judge Not" thing taken out of context.

In the same chapter of Matthew, just a few lines down you find "6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you."

In this case it's far more relevant for our discussion. After all we aren't focusing on gaydom with our gaydar but on adoption of young chillun' by professional homosexual activists.

Romney and his Mittbots appear to be unfamiliar with the Bible and Jesus' words.

Used to watch McLaughlin ~ and there's this woman ~ Eleanor Clift ~ who was about the first to effect me that way. My bowels would jump and twist whenever she came on.

But, it wasn't fatal and my trusty channel changer was right there to do an instant flip. Half a minute tops, and she'd be gone.

Then one day my eldest (who was about 4 at the time) lost the changer. We tore this house up until we could find it.

Never found it ~ but Carl Rowan was on another channel at the same time so we'd watch him instead so I wouldn't suffer from that woman's screeching. My big black cat, Agnew, just loved Carl too.

Note to self: watch this guy ~ he tried to flip the definitions ~ people who have sex with children are not exactly "heterosexual" particularly when it's across sex lines, and particularly not when they pass the kid around to other adults for sex ~ homosexuality is a condition defined by the act, and if it's 'the act' the practitioner is homosexual.

There are not hundreds of heterosexuals who do that.
