Bush Speaks Plainly About Children Raised By Gays [Say Anything]

Here's a statement from the President I agree with 100%:

Planet Out - President Bush angered advocates for LGBT equal rights by suggesting in a Thursday interview with the New York Times that "studies" show children develop better when raised by heterosexual married couples.

The remarks were part of the president's response to a question about the Florida law that bars gay men and lesbians from adopting children. The law -- one of the harshest anti-gay laws in the country -- was recently upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, and this month the Supreme Court refused to hear the challenge on appeal.

Regarding the Florida law, the president responded, "I don't know this particular case."

He continued by focusing on the "ideal in society" of children being raised by a man and a woman. "And I believe children can receive love from gay couples, but the ideal is -- and studies have shown that the ideal is where a child is raised in a married family with a man and a woman."

Clearly the President speaks the truth. Gay couples can no doubt provide loving homes, but the ideal situation for a child is in a home with strong maternal and paternal influence from a male and a female parent.

Of course, gay activists aren't framing this issue with what's best for the child.

"It's too bad we don't have an ideal president," said John Marble, spokesman for the National Stonewall Democrats.

"Any law that bars gay Americans from adopting children is morally wrong," he told the PlanetOut Network. "It's disturbing that we have a president who refuses to denounce such a law."

Mr. Marble is clearly more concerned with the alleged right of gays to adopt than with the welfare of the children. Frankly, there is no such right. When it comes to the issue of adoption the only right that exists is for children to be raised in the best of possible situations.

I'm willing to accept gay adoption in instances where there is no suitable heterosexual couples available to adopt, but I think its clearly in the best interest of the children that preference be given to qualifying heterosexual couples.
