If the results show no measurable difference between gay and straight parents, by what basis would you argue that a secular government should disallow gay adoption?

If the results show that gay couples are worse parents than straight couples, then we should admit that it was a mistake to open up the option, and discontinue adopting to gays.
Children thrive emotionally not off of the relationship between the parents and the child but between the parents themselves. Boys learn to become men and how to treat women respectably from their fathers, etc.... but also. The relationship between the parents is important because the child can see safety within that relationship.

Compare a loving relationship b/w a husband and wife vs one marriage on the brink of divorce. Single-parenting effects children too. A Stable Hetero-sexual marriage is the gold-standard for an environment to raise kids in. 1 wierd example of why we need parents is this. Girls whose fathers were not active in their lives, begin puberty earlier. (This has effects on their likelyhood of cancer). So it really is ingrained into human nature to have a mom and a dad. A same sex marriage isn't natural, we can assume there will be consequences to doing things the way they weren't meant to be.

Some of the information I got came from the "Chastity" tab at the top of this page. Go to the FAQ area in Chastity and look up responses against homosexuality.
