Homosexual Parenting is Devastating to Children

Stephanie Pappas, writing for LiveScience.com, recently penned an article titled, “Why Gay Parents May Be the Best Parents” (2012). In that article she attempted to make the case that same-sex couples provide an environment that is better for raising children than the environment provided by heterosexual couples. To bolster her case, she cited various studies, quoted numerous “experts,” and fleshed out the details with copious statistics. Her thinly veiled attempt to appear unbiased about the issue is extremely transparent, and her clear agenda to advance tolerance for homosexuality, in spite of its real impact on society, was evident.

Consider this. God created humans in His likeness. When He did, He made them “male and female” and designed the first home (Genesis 2:22-24). This divinely ordained, man-woman relationship has been the pillar of every productive society in the history of mankind. Furthermore, since God created humans, and knows precisely what is best for their well-being, only He would be in a position to know which type of parenting situation, same-sex or heterosexual, would be best for rearing children. Not only did He establish the family to be headed by heterosexual parents, but He consistently condemned the homosexual lifestyle as sinful, admonishing homosexuals to repent (Butt, 2003). Therefore, since same-sex parents are openly rebelling against God, and providing ......

I can’t imagine a worse scenario growing up. Two puff butts for parents?

It’s a wrongful act period.

Parents are supposed to be 1 Man and 1 WOMAN.

How much did THIS ‘study’ cost .... which I’m sure was re-newed annually, under slightly different ‘titles’ ???

Wherever homosexuals congregate, there are abominable crimes against children. Politically incorrect to state, but true nevertheless. The next goal of the gay agenda will be to abolish age of consent laws.

Do an internet search for domestic battery and than read sites devoted to gays and lesbians. Domestic battery among gays and lesbians is much, much higher than normal people. On one site I saw a statistic claiming 85% of all domestic battery cases are gays and lesbians.

Would it better for a kid to live in an orphanage or a gay or lesbian household? I really don’t know...

Well, if homosexual parenting is so beneficial to children, why hasn’t anyone informed that infamous bigot, Mother Nature?

Good article, from the scriptural standpoint - which isn't to be taken lightly; indeed, it may the the only ultimate standpoint to consider.

But, for the religion poohpoohers out there, there are mountains of evidence to restrict child rearing to two biological parents. Regnerus's study was just the latest to show significant ultimate differences in children exposed to homosexuality. If allowed to be pursued, there will be many more studies which show what abuse this amounts to.

My sister divorced her husband, immediately entered into a lesbian relationship with her two daughters in tow. One became a prostitute at age 12 and is still on the edge of the law even though she is in her early 30's and married with children now. The second daughter has become an over-nourished (like mom) lesbian as well.

I think role models are important. Children usually end up acting like those role models or parents. Ouch.

I think I’d rather have two drug dealers as parents, as long as they are a man and a woman.

To us they are innocent children.

To perverts they are potential (or actual) sex toys.

To the liberal government, children are only important when they can be used in some way to advance the liberal agenda, as a commodity to pay off liberal voting blocs, to help liberals amass power or money, or to use against conservatives in various ways.

Most homosexuals and supporters I know are chain smokers as well. What a dilemma, with the vicious attacks by the Left against smoking - are they now going to have to betray, by association, their darling political class pets?

I knew a lesbian couple who, presumably through artificial insemination, had a male child. Once when the boy was acting up as toddlers do one of the “parents” made a remark...”that’s just how men are...out of control”. I can’t imagine that poor boy growing up in a household where such anti-male thinking prevailed. I’m sure his life was totally screwed up.

One thing we can be sure of about Paris Jackson. whoever provided the sperm it wasn’t Michael Jackson.

He can dye himself but he cannot wash the black out of his sperm.

I am sorry to hear of this. We had a similar story, but at least the kids were “grown” when she left. It is perplexing and sad.

I too would have liked to see this author use more social science research, especially --- as you mentioned --- Regnerus.

But it is revealing to see what criteria the feminists/queer theorists use to determine that a childraising outcome is "better."

I'm just rattling this off from the top of my head, but from the research I've read, the following descriptors counted in the "better" category for kids raised by homosexuals, followed by my translation:

You get the picture.

hen I come across a few of these articles, I'll post them with comments.

Pray for these kids, and for our disintegrating culture.

They are in fact, better.

In a recent “study” of homosexual parenting that tried to bolster the idea that male “parents” are healthier because they don’t have as much “sex,” even the fact of raising a child didn’t affect their “open relationship” agreements to have sex on the side.

Homosexual Parenting: Is It Time For Change? - Dec 15, 2009

Conclusion

In summary, tradition and science agree that biological ties and dual gender parenting are protective for children. The family environment in which children are reared plays a critical role in forming a secure gender identity, positive emotional well-being, and optimal academic achievement. Decades of social science research documents that children develop optimally when reared by their two biological parents in a low conflict marriage. The limited research advocating childrearing by homosexual parents has severe methodological limitations. There is significant risk of harm inherent in exposing a child to the homosexual lifestyle. Given the current body of evidence, the American College of Pediatricians believes it is inappropriate, potentially hazardous to children, and dangerously irresponsible to change the age-old prohibition on homosexual parenting, whether by adoption, foster care, or reproductive manipulation. This position is rooted in the best available science.

Truth is immutable. The only thing that changes is the degree to which Liberals attempt to obscure truth.

I’d noticed the same trends.

Tauted studies have also shown that for more reasonable definitions of “Better”, that children raised by rich, white, lesbians even with all of the benefits of money, status, and a supportive community, do no better than poor, single, heterosexual mothers and are still unlikely to fully develop mentally, socially, and much more likely to be incarcerated at some point in their life.

Sadly, we live in an age where "truth" is no longer obvious, and in which certain truths are highly unpopular.

I know a few of these "families". Some of them are not really bad people, but they suffer from emotional problems, and their kids are uniformly messed up.

“.. a few of these “families”. Some of them are not really bad people, but they suffer from emotional problems, and their kids are uniformly messed up...”

sad and true. I think they would say , “because we are not accepted..”, but Maybe “wrong” behavior (sin) grates on our subconscious...(?)

Homos are accepted now, more than ever, but their problems aren't going away.

Truly sick, but we have been led to this for a long time, degree by degree. I feel sorry for those too young to have understood what we’ve lost by seeing it firsthand.

Yep, imagine the incessant sexual abuse of little boys adopted (er, purchased) by male homosexuals, just like in ancient Rome. All of this to satisfy the sick-minded queers.

In our younger days, my wife made a friend with a gay guy who rode on the train out to our house from the city, you know, who are we to judge, and love the sinner and hate the sin and all that. We were much younger and naive I must say.

Anyway, he had “come out” after being married and having a little girl. We knew them when the girl was in her early teens, the guy was living with his younger gay boyfriend, but I think he still had joint custody of the girl, (never met the mom, I guess she was a real piece of work too) so we saw her quite a lot. She deeply disliked the “boyfriend” but didn’t really show it around her Dad, and later on when she became an adult cut off all contact with her father and the boytoy. We moved away a couple of years latter and lost contact with them, but several years ago my wife did make contact again with the girl, she ended up really hating her father, you just can’t tell me that she ever had a good “parenting experience” when she was living with those two....
