McCain says the Lisa and I wouldn’t make good parents

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain mostly is in step with conservative thinking on social issues, but is not necessarily willing to incorporate those views into federal law, according to this article. McCain, who has an adopted daughter with his wife, Cindy, is opposed to adoptions by gay and lesbian couples, saying, “I think that we’ve proven that both parents are important in the success of a family so, no, I don’t believe in gay adoption.” He also is against equal marriage rights, but views the issue as one that should be decided at the state level.

so if you didn’t have enough reasons why NOT to vote for McCain how about this one?  So if kids need two parents – what about committed gay couples like Lisa and I?  If our country doesn’t allow more gays to adopt then nearly 1/4 of a million kids will continue to languish in foster care.  And with the divorce rate of heteros near 50% yet the rate of gays far far less.. how does it make sense that we (gays) would not provide a stable home for children?  Shame on your Mr. McCain
