Should homosexuals be allowed to adopt children?

This issue is about weather homosexual should be allowed to adopt children. There has been much debate over this issue some say it’s wrong and bad fro a children whilst others have nothing wrong with this type of arrangement. The religious groups are slipt over the idea some find it ok whilst others find it wrong.

The party against
This group believe gay adoption is incorrect for many reasons. They believe that the best environment for the interests of children is a household with both a mother and a father. A homosexual environment, on the other hand, can model homosexual behaviour to children. Also that children raised by homosexual parents or in a homosexual household are four times much more likely to experiment with homosexual behaviour than a child raised in a heterosexual households. Stability is the source to raising an emotionally and mentally healthy child. Unmarried and homosexual partners just cannot provide the same stability that married heterosexual couples can provide to a child. Children need a role model, both male and female. A mother and a farther is something that a child has the right to. Children have the best chance to thrive in married, mother and father based families this is what social science, the world’s major religions and our own common sense and observation tell us, so why not give kids the best possible chance at a normal, healthy family life. There is more of a chance that lesbians and gay men are more likely to molest children. Other children who are raised by heterosexual parents may tease the child of a homosexual couples. Homosexual parents may want their child to become gay just like a heterosexual parent wants their child to be similar to themselves. The children of a gay couple are more likely to experience gender and sexual confusion, they are at greater risk of losing a parent because of AIDS, substance abuse or suicide. These young people are more at the risk to be victims of sexual abuse, and they suffer more from disorders of due to social difficulties. Children need to feel good about their gender identity, for example a boy who was living with a lesbian couple he has strange behaviour and acts like a girl. Violence is substantially higher in non-heterosexual relationships that mean a child has more chance of being abused.

The party for
This group see nothing wrong with gays being allowed to adopt children. They believe the children of lesbian and gay parents grow up as successfully and as happy as the children of heterosexual parents. Home environments with lesbian and gay parents are as likely to successfully support a child\'s development as those with heterosexual parents. Good parenting is not influenced by sexual orientation. Rather, it is influenced most greatly by a parent\'s ability to create a loving and caring home, which is an ability that does not depend on whether a parent is gay or straight. The relationships of homosexuals are just as stable as the relationship that a heterosexual can have. The majority of lesbians and gay men are in stable committed relationships. Of course some of these relationships have problems, as do some heterosexual relationships. There are many children who don’t have home and there ain’t enough interested married heterosexual couples to provide home for each. So by allowing homosexual couples to adopt a safe home is being provided for the child and the child can have a permanent home and not be shuffled through from one house to the next. Ninety percent of child abuse is committed by heterosexual men. In one study of 269 cases of child sexual abuse, only two offenders were found to be gay or lesbian.

Religious views
Islam –The Islamic people and Islamic religion consider homosexuality as a sin. Homosexuality as far as Islam is concerned is a big mistake (as are all sins if they are not intending to do wrong).

Neopagan - Neopaganism on the other hand don’t consider homosexuality to be an issue. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are almost always welcomed in individual communities, covens, study groups, and circles. Many homosexual Neo-Pagans take to Neo-Pagan religions for the main reason of getting away from the pressure of there original homophoic religon. This
