(CBS News) Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Thursday that while he opposes same-sex marriage, he is "fine" with gay couples adopting children. The presumptive nominee also declined to criticize President Obama's reversal on the issue, saying he would "respect the right of the president to reach the conclusion he has."

In his most detailed comments to date on the issue of civil rights for gay people, Romney told Fox News television host Neil Cavuto, "I know many gay couples that are able to adopt children. That's fine. But my preference is that we ... continue to define marriage as the relationship between man and a women."

The statement seemed to put Romney in the position of condoning same-sex families with children as long as the parents do not marry.

Homosexual male "couples" are notorious for tolerating outside sex in their disordered relationships. Dan Savage, a homosexual activist who adopted a baby boy (hence his book "The Kid"), recommends "nonmonogamy" as an alternative to marital fidelity. He writes that he and his "husband" twice engaged in sexual "three-ways" even after adopting the boy.

Another irrelevant “issue” to this election. It’s just a pitiful distraction from Obama’s terrible record.

Let's not forget that gay adoptive "father of the year":

Frank Lombard is the associate director of Duke’s Center for Health Policy. The university administrator was recently arrested by the FBI and charged with offering up his adopted 5-year-old son for sex. I tried to contact Frank Lombard over the weekend to probe his expertise regarding the health benefits of raping small children. So far, he’s declined to comment.

University administrator Lombard is accused of logging on to a chat room online and describing himself as a “perv dad for fun.” The detective who wisely looked into the suspicious screen name says that Lombard admitted to molesting his own adopted son. All this was before allegedly inviting a stranger to travel to North Carolina from another state to statutorily rape his already-molested adopted son.

Then we legislate that a child may only have ONE father and ONE mother.

Romney will have coattails which will bring in a veto proof congress. A congress that would keep the rinos in check.

how do you KNOW nobody wants them?

and limiting one group to the “rejects” is legally bizare and unsustainable under the law. It is the cammel in the tent.

It is the argument used by the florida bar when their MANDATORY BAR endorsed homosexuals accessing children.

"For me, it’s the adopting children part of this gay marriage issue that is the most troubling."

Me too! Damn the marriage issue. Luckily I have family members at the ready if God forbid me and the wife are taken out. I have 3 kids, and I can't imagine 2 dudes raising my son. I can even take another race cause my wife and I are retired military and military brats are special to us. I can't, however get with our "nominee" Romney on gay adoption. We gotta stop pretending this guy ain't in the wrong party.
