    Congrats to them on their child!! Im pretty horrified by all the hate on these comments. Im surprised that these commenters call themselves Christians yet go on to equate these people to "child molesters", "rapists", "abominations", etc.... You are insecure. If you dont have anything worthwhile to say, then you should just keep it to yourself because the normal people who are trying to foster a functioning society don't need it. Love and peace to all!!

    Whats to say lesbians can not raise a child or children better than a straight couple? These children grow up knowing that hate is wrong and make for a better future of tolerance. Kids brought up by some straight families all they are tought. Love and let love. Gays dont push their lifestlye in faces they just want to be accepted like a straight person wants respect and acceptance. Learn to love and not hate. By the way I am a lesbian parent of two great honor kids.they are welll rounded to all that life has to offer

Don't like it; feel so sorry for the kids; and wish all these people would go back in the closet and lock the damn door. It's as if being gay is such an honorable thing these days. It's not. Gotta say; if you want to be gay, that's between you and God. Keep it to yourselves and quit shoving it in our faces. It's nothing to be proud of.

      Um, no. I hate to break it to you, El, but in this country there is no right "to not be confronted with things that make me uncomfortable." Every person has the right to live their life uncensored and unedited. If you don't like it you can ignore it, or you can actually get to know some of the people you judge so harshly. Who knows, you just might discover that they are smart, funny, loving, compassionate, caring, knowledgeable people of substance.

    "Wife and wife" or "husband and husband" cannot make children, at least without some sick Dr. Morreau-style science experiment.

Who made you judge and jury for these women and their lifestyle and ability to raise good, productive, citizens? Your comments simply reinforce that YOU are NOT worthy of friendship from those around you because you do not accept or tolerate those who share this planet with you.

      Happiness is irrelevant when you aren't true to yourself, a male is a male, a female is a female, an ant is an ant, and a tree is a tree. God/nature made it that way and a male should only have se-x with a female or a female should only have se-x with a male, and that's how it should be whatever anyone says or does.
