    In a perfect world maybe??? But let's be honest… is it better to leave a child in the foster care system or offer them a stable home life….. McCain is a DOUCHE!

    How can ignorance like this possible lead a nation?

    Vote Democrat, Vote Green, Vote Independent…just don't vote republican

  9. Anon says – reply to this


    "Both" can refer to a gay/lesbian couple. Sexuality doesn't make a parent, LOVE does!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WOOHOO! GO MCCAIN! He'll totally win, Obama doesn't have any change.

  11. aj says – reply to this


    His daughter is gay, I doubt he'd say that to her face. It's just the standard Republican rule to say you don't agree with gays. If you intend to remain Republican and win the Presidency, that is. (which he wont)

  31. Ruthi says – reply to this


    he said "both parents" does too much wangbone lessen your ability to be an effective parent?? I virtually have no parents and I am telling you, i'd rather have 2 good gay parenst as appose to 2 divorced and never there parents.. its a new day and age and as long as the two care givers are happy and in love and theres no negative drama to effect the kid who gives a fuck if mommy screws around with mommy! i dont think the gay "gene" has any play into your parenting skill..at the end of the day.. its all about being good people and good parents… so if your partner has the same parts of you that shouldnt even matter.

  34. CS says – reply to this


    Look at how many children are brought up in dysfunctional family households with a dad and mom. I don't think there's anything wrong withs gays wanting to adopt. They want to fulfill the dream of having children and there are plenty of children in this world that need to be adopted, so that statement makes no sense to me.

    Team Obama!

    Ummm, what? Is it just me, or are there two parents, or "both" parents, in a gay/lesbian relationship as well? Is he equating a gay/lesbian couple to a single parent…?

  41. andy says – reply to this


    that's the same thing as saying a single parent can't raise a kid

  48. Perez says – reply to this


    McCain is absolutely right on. Gay parents shouldnt have kids. All they will do is fuck a kids life up permanently.

    Kids need a mom and a dad. Period.

  49. melis says – reply to this


    Wow a man, and a politician ACTUALLY giving an OPINION!!! I don't agree, BUT I admire a man or woman to have an OPINION and not just answer politically correctly!!! Gay adoption is happening, will continue to occur, why do you care what he says Perez?

    We know you aren't voting for him.

  50. .... says – reply to this


    Re: holy – lol you're the dumbass… OBAMA is the only one trying to restrict rights… 2nd amendment anyone? he's voted against gun rights out the ying yang and said, and i QUOTE, he wishes no one could have them. he wants universal health care to take away the right to have good, efficient, privatized health care for the people willing to sacrifice for it. he wants to give health care to ILLEGAL immigrants… something no other nation would EVER fucking do. say what you want about republicans, but as far as more rights go, THEY are the party for LESS government involvement, and always have been… read a fucking history book because you have no clue what you're talking about.

  51. Ant says – reply to this


    I don't know where I stand on gay issues ( I can't possibly know what its like to be gay, therefore I can't form an opinion). But I think these issues pale in comparison to the big stuff. The war, healthcare, and education. We let petty shit like "oohhh but Obama's a muslim" (no he's not), "ewwww we can't let them gays have rights" (fuck off). All of that shit cloudes ppls judgment, and then thats why you get conservitives to vote in blocks. Because they hate gay ppl…Hell they hate all ppl.

  52. Monke says – reply to this



  53. ..... says – reply to this


    Re: melis – no shit! if obama was asked the question, he would evade it like he does EVERY other question. at least mccain will outright say what he thinks about shit, and to hell with anyone who doesn't agree. obama changes his opinion, personality, and entire life story based on what group he's trying to reach out to.

  58. Marli says – reply to this


    Team Obama. This man is over 70, and still has not learned what is truly important in life, the love we have for one another, REGARDLESS of sexual preference of religion or whatever. Fool. How can Americans vote for someone like that? I am proud to be European when I read this stuff. :$

  59. Contr says – reply to this


    Interestingly enough, here in Canada, the conservative and christian groups demanded the government perform a study on how well off children are with same sex parents vs. the opposite sex parents. As it turns out - THERE IS VIRTUALLY NO DIFFERENCE! In fact - the STUDY SHOWS GAY PARENTS ARE OFTEN BETTER PARENTS THAN STRAIGHT PARENTS. You can access the study on the government of Canada website. McCain has no idea what he's talking about - AGAIN.

  60. Ass says – reply to this


    Yeah, cause we all know that their aren't any single parents in the world, huh? What a moron!

  61. E&J says – reply to this


    well guess what old man ? ,me and my bf will adopt a child and there is not a damn thing a narrow minded self righteous douche bag like you can do about it . We are also sure that as a couple we can provide better environment for the child because having money and not relying on welfare like most ignorant breeders does ,we can provide a good home and a better education for our future baby boy and girl . The truth is we hear it more often that ignorant breeders usually ends up in a divorce and a nasty child support and custody battle leaving some children to end up in a protection care waiting to be adopted by much better couples ,some are gay
    couples . It's not funny how you are such an ignorant bigot Mc Cunt so ignorant that you can't see wake up and smell reality because you are too busy being such a delusional asshole .We also hear that some breeders even rape and murder their own children but of course you are such in denial to admit the truth . Go fuck yourself together with your undead creepy looking wife . :)

  62. prote says – reply to this


    1/3 of child sexual abuse is committed by a homosexual yet homosexuals make up only about 1/33 of the population. Numbers don't lie. Children need protection. Were you abused Perez? Did you like it?

  63. Jj says – reply to this




  64. Ugh says – reply to this


    I have both a mother and a father and I think they've screwed me up royaly. I think gay adoption should be allowed. Anyone see that episode of 30 Days where the hetero woman went to live with the gay couple and all their kids? The hetero woman was fucked up. I feel sorry for her kids. I'd much rather have lived with the gay couple.

  65. aj says – reply to this


    McCain is SUCK a fucking LOSER!!! Karma is a bitch and i can't wait for it to come and kick his closeminded ignorant bigot ass!

  66. cdr says – reply to this


    Re: hotki
    His daughter's not gay you idiot! Dick Cheney's daughter is gay!
    I don't like McCain or Obama, but I agree; gay couples should not adopt. It's creepy.

  67. liber says – reply to this


    I agree with him 100 PERCENT!!!

  68. abcd1 says – reply to this


    Re: Shann – Go Shann! I am voting for McCain and have nothing against gay adoption. Just because you vote Republican doesn't mean that you are narrow-minded and hate gay people.

  69. Cot78 says – reply to this


    at least gay couples break it off and go their own way. most heterosexual couples with kids stay together and cheat on each other openly while the children watch it all. Poor tikes.

  70. Candy says – reply to this


    That is totally ridiculous . . . I hope the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual communities come out in full force against this ass!

    And Elle, McCain has flipped on some issues. Do a search on folks who have criticized him for that.

  71. Jenny says – reply to this


    Hey Perez I am aunt to FIVE fabulous nieces/nephews who happen to be adopted. Now you seem to forget this very valid point. THEIR BIRTH PARENTS CHOOSE WHERE THEY WOULD GO!!!!!!! Not some social worker, not some politician. And these saintly unselfish wonderful people choose my brother's and sister's families. They choose Mother/Father straight couples. I am sure other birth parents choose other couples based on what they think is best for their child. If a birth parent thinks there is a gay couple who would provide the best home, they will choose them!!! Politics should not be any where near adoption!!!

  72. kccod says – reply to this


    This coming from a man broke his marriage vows and had an affair with wife #2 before he divorced wife #1 who was in a horrific car crash when McCain was a POW. Family Values- no way.

  73. lala says – reply to this


    Actually, he has a point, and I am a Democrat. I have plenty of gay friends..but this is a serious issue. It is NOT natural for 2 people of the same sex to have babies…think about the children! They did not ask to be put in an awkward, uncomfortable position where they will be teased & tormented by their peers. Also, with the "pregnant man" it's like what the hell is next? I'm sorry, but that was just plain FUCKING DISGUSTING to see.

    what an old asshole!!! He has no idea what he is talking about… Alot of straight parents have fucked up their children royally, as long as the child has to loving parents in a stable relationship than the child in question will be fine… He is a dumbass for saying this he has no chance of winning the election if he even lives through it isnt he like 80?!!

  76. ERIKA says – reply to this


    OK, sorry. I am FOR gay adoption and even I know that there have been studies that suggest negative affects on a child not raised with a male and female role model. My whole thing is, if he is citing those studies, he should also be against single parents adopting.

  77. Mina says – reply to this


    Or wait, I do have a comment.
    Gay people shouldn't adopt. Its too freaky.

    Re: prote – yes children need protection from abusive heterosexuals who don't have any business having children in the first place . The reality don't lie
    are you one of them ? heteros who keeps fucking and then neglect their own children ?

  80. 80

    all i can say is . . . OBAMA 4 PRESIDENT !!!!

  81. Ant says – reply to this


    Re: lala – I agree with you somewhat. Its a strange topic. I think we need to focus in on the broader issues, before we start getting into the idealogicsl issues. But this man is an idiot, and we truly can't afford to have him as the next president. If you think Bush was bad, just wait. I predict this scum bag will win the presidency. Because the bible belt right won't let Obama win.

  82. @v@ says – reply to this


    Yes, both parents matter. Isn't a gay couple TWO parents? A child would still have two people lavishing them with love, education and attention. McCain divorced his first wife due to admitted extramarital affairs, yet they had a child together. Perhaps that has strengthened his view. A child with two gay parents who didn't stray might be better off than a child left with only one parent. So I agree with him. He agrees with him. He might have simply indicated that bonding with an opposite parent could also be productively formative.

  83. Krist says – reply to this


    Sorry, John McCain you're not a psychologist! Sexual orientation has nothing to do with raising a child. A child is already predisposed by their genetics alone! He's just proven that ignorance is bliss. Funny thing…I just finished reading a chapter on sexuality and children in one of my Psychology classes…

    So i'll still be voting for him. BUT i believe he is wrong in this point! There is so many kids that will never have a family I think a gay family is better then none at all.

  87. 87

    I was raised by a single mother, my father was locked up for all of my childhood. And she worked hard and did a fantastic job, it has nothing to do with how many or what sex they are. This douchebag is Bush 2.0, thank GOD he wont win!

    Obama '08

  88. Uhh.. says – reply to this


    So what exactly is "gay adoption?" Is that when you adopt a gay? Like if some of us got together and adopted Perez? I don't want to adopt Perez.
    On the other hand, if he meant to say "I don't believe in adopting children into a gay household," or "I don't believe a child should be adopted by a same-sex couple," I would like to say this to Mr McCain…
    I don't believe in kicking to the curb your once-beautiful wife, who spent five lonely years waiting for your return and remained faithful to you even when she couldn't be sure of your fate. Tossing her under the bus for some rich Barbie just because the woman was severely injured in an accident and wasn't the raving physical beauty you had married was the act of a man with a dark heart.
    You know, America's looking pretty ugly these days, so with your track record of kicking formerly Beautiful Ladies when they're down, and tossing them aside, I have a great fear for this once beautiful country if you get in. Bush III. I ain't saying the other guy is any better, but he CAN'T be any worse.
    Besides all that, there are people McCain's age who shouldn't even be driving because they're too old, and this guy is going to run a country? God help us all.

  89. Erin says – reply to this


    Hey, it's always the homophobes, right?
    He shouldn't even be allowed to goddamn run. He wasn't fucking born in this country.
    What happened to all of us?
    Can't we just live in peace and accept?
    Or can't he just keep over and die already?

  90. Slate says – reply to this


    Re: lala – It's people like you that create bigoted children (you know the ones doing the teasing) If you don't agree with homosexual relationships, don't have one and keep your opinion to yourself.

    amen to this

  92. @v@ says – reply to this


    A child with no one to love him would be incrementally better off with two same sex parents who love, nurture and care for him than a child left to bounce around the foster care system or the streets trying to fend for himself at a too young age.

    go canada… get married and adopt here!

  95. 95

    He does have a point. I don't believe in gay adoption either.
    A child needs a mother and a father. 2 fathers is a total differents. Especially when they're gay, ’cause then it would be like having 2 mothers.

    Re: lala – I feel sorry for you and your "gay friends" because you are obviously as ignorant as this piece of shit Mc Cain . Think of all the children neglected by some of you fucking asshole breeders ,you people keep making them and when a nice gay couple want to adopt them you refuse to believe that maybe they can give a better future for these children which obviously people like you can never provide.

    "Hi. We are here to get married."
    "John Smith, Jane James, Robert Green, and June Johnson."
    "Who wants to marry whom?"
    "We all want to marry each other."
    "But there are four of you!"
    "That's right. You see, we're all bisexual. I love Jane and Robert, Jane
    loves me and June, June loves Robert and Jane, and Robert loves June and me.
    All of us getting married together is the only way that we can express
    our sexual preferences in a marital relationship."
    "But we've only been granting licenses to gay and lesbian couples."
    "So you're discriminating against bisexuals!"
    "No, it's just that, well, the traditional idea of marriage is that it's
    just for couples."
    "Since when are you standing on tradition?"
    "Well, I mean, you have to draw the line somewhere."
    "Who says? There's no logical reason to limit marriage to couples. The more
    the better. Besides, we demand our rights! The mayor says the constitution
    guarantees equal protection under the law. Give us a marriage license!"
    "All right, all right. Next."
    "Hello, I'd like a marriage license."
    "In what names?"
    "David Deets."
    "And the other man?"
    "That's all. I want to marry myself."
    "Marry yourself? What do you mean?"
    "Well, my psychiatrist says I have a dual personality, so I want to marry
    the two together. Maybe I can file a joint income-tax return."
    "That does it! I quit!! You people are making a mockery of marriage!!"
