-Using Biology, Not Religion, to Argue Against Same-Sex Marriage
Patricia and Wesley Galloway could not have children of their own. Yet for them, the essence of marriage is rooted in procreation. "It takes a man and a woman to create children and thus create a family," Mrs. Galloway, 60, told a legislative panel in Connecticut last year as it was considering a bill to legalize same-sex marriage.

-Gay adoption not wrong
Responding to the letter on Tuesday, Oct. 7, "Gay adoption ban a moral must," it's difficult to know where to begin. There are undesirables in every group of people, and to think that every loving, committed, gay person falls into that category is beyond absurd. The problem with uninformed people is that they view homosexuality only as a sex act. What if it were two unmarried brothers, or two old maid aunts, rearing an orphaned child of a family member? Because two parents are of the same sex is totally irrelevant to their ability to rear a child in a happy, healthy environment. Not allowing a couple to offer a stable, loving, home, to an unwanted child is so shortsighted.If you feel gay adoption is wrong, how do you feel about child abuse? There are so many children who need care.

-The head of the British Army has made military history by addressing a conference on homosexuality, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal. General Sir Richard Dannatt, the chief of the general staff, told members of the Army-sponsored Fourth Joint Conference on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual Matters that homosexuals were welcome to serve in the Army. In a speech to the conference in London on Thursday, - the first of its kind by any Army chief - Gen Sir Richard said that respect for gays, lesbian, bi-sexual and trans-sexual officers and soldiers was now "a command responsibility" and was vital for "operational effectiveness".
