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.

These would gay MARRIED couples right, Mittens???
If you think Mittens doesn’t support gay marriage, you are off the rocker.
For an identity that is based solely on the actions of “consenting adults in private”, they sure are quite public about their agenda.
When do the kids get to consent to being brought into an alternative lifestyle home?
“Apart from prayer, I’m out of answers.”
Keep praying, even harder, and support pro-life, conservatives, who are running for a House or U.S. Senate seat. We need a HUGE majority of them, because whoever wins the presidency, we won’t have a true conservative in the White House.
The child will choose?
It will not decrease abortion, the left won’t support that.
It will increase the rate of child abuse, molestation and all kinds of perverted crap though.
Romney should take a look at THIS:
“58 percent of the children of lesbians called themselves gay, and 33 percent of the children of gay men called themselves gay.”
We teach our children by EXAMPLE.
Come on Floyd, have you even offered a room? A lot of people talk, who even take the next step to sacrifice. Do you realize how hard it is to save one life out there? Put up! Sign up for the foster parent program. Sign up to try to save one life! I make over 100K per year and have a large house with a lot of space and bureaucracy is keeping us from helping one child if we aren’t trained by ‘the state’.
I guess we should let Pedophiles adopt too.
There are 2 lesbians in Kalipornia that have an 8 year old boy on sex change hormones. They have brainwashed that boy.
The perverts are targeting children, Chastity Bono was 11 years old when the nanny got to her and Cher- the creep- thought it was good for the girl. I guess she turned out fine.
“Homosexuals are mentally ill sex perverts”
Pretty harsh general judgment of all homosexuals. As long as you are throwing moral stones, where do you stand on divorce when kids are involved?
Oh my gosh, you are right, they should have killed the Bono kid!
It all is clear now!
“I would love to see how many mouth-offs here would open up just one fracking room of their lives to a baby who would be killed other wise”
I couldn’t agree more. There really wouldn’t be a need for a large foster program if all the self righteous people speaking with such hatred would show as much compassion for these kids lives which are being thrown away everyday and step forward and save a life.
Exactly what I thought when I read that title.
Can we just start over now? :\
“most electable” bump
You betcha! This is what happened when the anti-Romney vote was fragmented.
So have you taken your state foster parenting classes yet?
Yea, good idea, not like thousands have thought of it.. even in one of the most conservative states where I live in... where adoption is as difficult as producing home-made aspirin.
When Buggery is om the top ten with murder, give me a call, until then, we will try to save babies from murder even if the state puts up roadblocks.
I would have voted for Newt.
This carnival gets worse by the day.
Obama and his tribe are screwing up just about each and every day... then this clown comes out with this nonsense....just damn.
You Don’t even want to know... from classes to years of evaluations. And we are in a Conservative state. Like in most states you have to be dependent on the government to be part of the government (ie foster) system.
Sad isn’t it?
I am so wanting to just hide under the bed till it’s over. LOL!
