No ties. Gotta choose one or the other.

What about neither are bad?

If you think both are good things, choose the one that's least good.

I don't care if either one happens.

It is far better for a child to be adopted by a male/female methhead child pornographer couple than it is for a child to be adopted by male/male affluent doctor couple!

How about we split the difference and let gay couples adopt aborted fetuses?

Hmmm...if I truly wanted to be contrary, I would offer a comment about "considering your other posts, it is not surprising that you make such a callous comment about the easy disposal of human life".

However, mallet, I don't believe that you are (intentionally) callous. I wish that everyone would focus on each post without trying to second-guess posters' intentions by dragging up other views expressed about other topics.

I'm sure you agree (wouldn't want to see panties in a twist, would we?).

BTW...was the one lone voter in favor of aborting the fetus in the poll above serious, or were they just being facetious? Thoughts?

You've wandered into the wrong poll.

No, I'm perfectly fine with bringing up other things people have posted, versus taking each post as an island unconnected to anything else that person might have said.

For example, I would say that a callous joke is far less harmful than trying to deny a whole category of people their civil rights, something I have seen you post about frequently.

Oh, but I was just making callous jokes. Some people have no sense of humor.

But you are absolutely correct...our Constitution enshrines the "civil rights" of every person to engage in any type of consenting adult sexual activity one might choose. Can't remember which Article or Amendment, but it must be there somewhere.

It's obviously worse to let a gay couple adopt an unwanted baby because the aborted fetus will go directly to Heaven, but a child raised by a gay couple will probably grow up to be a Democrat or something even worse and end up spending an eternity in Hell.

Don't worry, we'll get there. And the best part is, try as you might, torture logic to your heart's content, but it will still happen anyway. And the country will be better for it.

You hit the nail on the head. It takes a SCOTUS willing to "torture logic", as they did when finding a "right to privacy" to justify Roe v. Wade, to approve certain agendas.

First I need pix of the prospective Dads. If one has a chest worthy of baby snuggling, not guilty. If they're both sassy or on television, I vote "choice".

See, I do have a sense of humor! You just needed to say something funny first.

Where is the "Abort gay couples" choice? That's my pick.

Wait... those babies didn't get baptized. Can you get into Heaven without being baptized?

They were lesbians with ample bosoms.

Not if you're Catholic, which is why they baptize sperm.
