Gallup Poll: Strong Majority Now Believe Gays Should Be Allowed to Adopt Kids
Christian Post ^ | 06/02/2014 | Napp Nazworth

Posted on 06/02/2014 9:28:28 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

A strong majority, 63 percent, of Americans now say that same-sex couples should have a legal right to adopt a child, according to a new Gallup poll. About one in three, 35 percent, are opposed.

The result is the opposite of 1992, when Gallup first polled the question. Sixty-three percent said homosexual couples should not be legally permitted to adopt in that year. In 1998, that number declined to 57 percent. In 2003 and 2007, Americans were about equally divided on the question.

The recent poll was the first time Gallup showed a clear majority supportive of giving same-sex couples the legal right to adopt a child.

The strongest support came from Democrats (80 percent), followed by independents (61 percent), then Republicans (51 percent).

Young people were more supportive than older people. Among ages 18 to 29, 77 percent answered that same-sex couples should have the right to adopt, followed by 65 percent for ages 30 to 49, 59 percent for ages 50 to 64 and 52 percent for those 65 and older.

I wonder if this popular show on prime time TV had any influence the past few years?

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe this. Americans have been threatened and punished for giving their opinions, and now the only opinions you do get are from those spouting the PC line.

So, you think the 35 percent who are opposed are in danger of being threatened and punished for giving their opinions?

If this is true, then we are lost as a nation. Completely.

I see that TV show with the two queers and their adopted daughter and I seen untold manipulation and diversion from the real perversion that is homosexuality.

They show a peck on the cheek and lovey-dovey humanist affection between two people, but they do not show the physical and mental perversion that forms the basis of all their ‘morality’.

God never intended it, Hollywood won’t show the truth - you can only find that via gay porn - and liberals and Democrats only support it because it is a means to degenerate us all. Truly evil people

The point is that many fear they might be. Intimidation accomplished. I think July4 is absolutely right. Such polls are skewed by their very nature.

Why don’t they just produce their own?? Oh, right...

Therein lies the problem with mating with somebody that it’s impossible to produce children with.

So they believe society should just fill in the gap (so to speak) and provide them with the children that they refuse to create themselves (with somebody who can produce them with them).

The Dementocrats are well aware that homosexuality in itself is an agenda against social realities, and against social stability. Since children do not yet have a sound grasp on what makes a society stable, they are naturally susceptible to faulty and destructive ideas; consequently, homosexuals seek to adopt all the children they can, while attempting to brainwash the children they can't adopt through the public schools.

Is same-sex attraction pedophilia to be classified as a type or sub-set of homosexuality too?

Or is it in a class by itself?

Yet another perfect example of why we conservatives and patriots are complete idiots for not having created our own pop culture infrastructure! Why do we not have a conservative response to "American Family"? Why did we stand around and not respond to "Will and Grace"? Why do we not counter Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Green Day, Kanye West, Pink, George cLooney, Katy Perry, et al? Why do we keep making excuses?

There are talented conservatives and patriots making music, writing screenplays, trying to break into the movie biz, and so on. But we conservatives seem to think that anything artistic and creative isn't for us. "Our brains aren't wired that way", I've heard on a few occasions. Wake up, people...we gotta get "that way". Music, movies, reality TV, sports and so on are what influences Generation.com, not family, church, talk radio, or the Heritage Foundation. We have allowed the Left unchallenged access to the most power weapon ever for molding and shaping the minds of young people, and it's going to kill this Republic.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

My sister-in-law has a lesbian aunt. She’s about 50 and has been with the same partner for 25 years. They’ve adopted 2 children with Downs Syndrome. They’ve given those children a rich and fulfilling life. Sorry, I can’t condemn them. The vast majority of Freepers I’m sure think those women are headed for the lake of fire. Sorry, but I just can’t believe a just god would do that.

They want this that badly....? Let the fools have it. Do they think that the divorce industry is going to give them a pass? No. That 50+% divorce rate will apply to them, to. Look at all they’ll be getting. The ruinous attorney’s fees, trashed credit, stripping of assets and retirement accounts. Now add the horrendous expense of custody fights, court ordered custody arrangements and child support. They want all of that...let them have it. It’s not like you would be doing them any favors.

Now that homosexuality has become a normal part of our society, pedophilia has to follow, and what better way to assure that than allowing homosexual couples to adopt young children.

The great American brainwashed think tolerance of evil is a virtue, and our children will pay for this foolishness.

I’ve always wondered...

Is same-sex attraction pedophilia to be classified as a type or sub-set of homosexuality too?

Or is it in a class by itself?

In other words, are men like Michael Jackson considered gay?

I don’t think your relatives are headed for Hades. How would I know that? But I also don’t think they should have been allowed to adopt children—not as a couple, certainly. I can tell horror stories of kids I have known who were deliberately deprived of a mother or a father so a gay couple could pretend to be their parents, but it’s not stories (horror or otherwise) that matter. It’s a way of being reared that Nature and Nature’s God designed for all of us, and it’s wrong to deprive children of it in the name of a social experiment.

Do you mean, classified by APA's DSM-IV? No, homosexuality is not classified as any kind of mental illness, and has not been since 1973.

I think there's something called "sexual orientation dysphoria," which means being unhappy about your sexual orientation. That's considered the mental illness: being an unhappily gay. They want you to be happy.

Pedophilia, called in the DSM 'pedophilic disorder'" is still listed as a disorder. So far.No special separate classification for same-sex or other-sex.

Sorry, but I just can’t believe a just god would do that.

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by me." Good works will not save anyone who hasn't repented of their sins and trusted Christ for salvation. It just doesn't work that way. God has already paid a huge price to provide salvation for those who will have it on His terms. God is just, and God is holy. The blood of Christ cleanses from all sin.

If it follows the opinion polls before ‘gay marriage’ popular votes it would be around +5% or so for the poll in the favour of the homosexualist side when you look at the actual voting results. So maybe around 57-59% in favour if it was put to an actual vote. But it could also be that more are accepting of gay adoption than ‘gay marriage.’

I sympathize with your sil's aunt. They are, however, exceptional cases and need to be given consideration as exceptional cases.

God bless her for giving these Down's Syndrome kids a chance in life. People are not exactly lining up to adopt kids with Down's.

They are not, however, the norm and should not be legislated as the norm. Something like 80% of all heterosexual women and 70% of all heterosexual men are faithfully monogamous.

Amount homosexuals, these figures drop to around 6% for women and 3% for men. I'm glad your sil's aunt is in the 6% and has worthwhile things on her mind like giving Down's kids a real chance in life. She sounds like a giving unselfish person.

Most homosexuals priorities, however, are located well below the waist.

As Gertrude Stein said, homosexual men have to do drugs and alcohol to palliate their horrible acts. I’m convinced that most people have no idea what gay men do. But I lived through the 1970s in NYC and we all knew the kind of disgusting acts these people performed in private and in public. And sometimes I’m not even talking about sodomy.
