I oppose homosexual adoption & forcing religious adoption institutions to place children with gays.

Every study I have reviewed indicates that the best possible environment for the nurturing and development of children is in a committed family setting with both a mother and a father.  The basic building block of society is a loving family which includes a mother and father committed to each other and their children.  It has been the staple for civilization since the beginning.  Why would DSS want to potentially send children into a setting which places children at a disadvantage?  It appears the DSS is more concerned with the self esteem of homosexual adults than with the welfare and development of children.
