Orphans and Gays Adopting December 4, 2008

A few days ago I was listening to a talk radio show while driving.  The topic of the debate was whether or not gays should be able to adopt children.  By no means am I one claiming it is an easy issue to resolve as we do not live in a perfect world and there are many children who are in need of a home.  I have known a few gay couples who have successfully adopted children and they will most likely raise responsible citizens. 

However, in a world with about 1 billion Christians, I don’t think there should be any orphans at all.  In fact, the Bible is very clear about the mandate for Christians (and Jews) to take care of the widows and orphans.  I understand that not every Christian can financially take on another child.  But there are many that could easily take in an orphan or two.  If even half of Christians could take in an orphan, I bet there wouldn’t be such a problem in this world.  If there weren’t such a problem, then perhaps the entire debate about gays adopting children wouldn’t exist. 

Moreover, Christians believe that the soul is of more importance than the body.  So, when analyzing the debate about gays adopting children, this must be in the mind of Christians.  I have no doubt that the gays who live in a stable relationship can provide a better home than many straight couples.  I have known several very hard working gay couples who are very kind and great citizens of the United Staes.  When it comes to providing materially for children, many gay couples can do a fantastic job.  However, what good would it be for the child to gain the world, but lose his soul?
