I am astonished at the lack of tolerance for our gay/lesbian community.
however, I understand that it's not the mainstream to allow them to marry and that states will deal with this as they choose.
I am of the opinion that church and state should be separate and therefore gay/lesbian couples should have all of the same rights as heterosexual couples - under the law.
But this Arkansas ballot sinks to a new low. It was proposed and passed that "unmarried" couples should not be allowed to adopt children. Moreover, this was proposed as a way to exclude gay couples from adopting children. BUT, it's always presented by the Right to Lifers that adoption be the option as opposed to abortion. If that's the case, how can they honestly say that the pool of adoptive parents be narrowed down. They are trying to get more woman to complete their pregnancies in order to give babies up for adoption... all that should matter is that they get a loving, caring environment where their needs are met.
