    MIAMI - Four gay men lost a federal challenge Wednesday to the only blanket state law banning homosexuals from adopting children.

    The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (news - web sites) ruled against the men, who are foster parents seeking to adopt children in their care despite the 1977 law passed in the heyday of Anita Bryant's anti-homosexual campaign.

    Great ruling. No unmarried couple should be allowed to adopt children.

    Just another pathetic attempt to justify your homophobia.

    <i> Personality studies

    Researchers who have conducted careful studies of pedophiles outside the clinical or criminological settings have found little evidence to support the belief that attraction to underage boys is related to any particular personality profile or disorder.13

    For example, two British psychologists studied a sample of 77 men most of whom were attracted to 12 to 14 year old boys. A high percentage were professionals. The administered the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire to assess personality characteristics.

    * The men showed no signs of clinically significant psychopathy or thought disorder.
    * However, they were on average more introverted, shy, and sensitive than the general population.
    * They were more likely to have feelings of loneliness and depression.

    The researchers wrote that other investigators had obtained similar results, but emphasized that it could not be concluded whether these characteristics were related to pedophilia or to society's attitudes toward them. They wrote that their results were "consistent with previous findings in failing to discover any obvious links between paedophilia and aggressive or psychotic symptoms.14

    Similarly, after an extensive review of the literature, two UCLA psychologists concluded:

    * Nothing can be deduced about the personality or characteristics of pedophiles.
    * Even pedophiles who have been convicted of offenses against children show no consistent diagnosable pathology apart from sexual deviation.
    * Little can be concluded about sex offenders against minors: Some tend toward shyness, loneliness, low self-esteem, and isolation, but not in a significant way when compared with other offenders. Furthermore, such feelings may be the result of society’s reaction to them.</i>

    Bully,

    I bet you think that it is just priests raping children, and not homosexuals.

    Homosexuals show there twisted mindset by doing the things that they do to one another.

    Thats why the majority of child molesters, serial killers and people with sexual diseases are homosexuals.

    No old son, just pedophiles. Research doesn't support your contention. And the only twisted mindset I see here is yours.

    By the way, are you...curious?

    A pedophile...

    And, just why are you...curious?

    Examine your motives...if you dare. You'll find your deepest fears staring you in the face.

    I have noticed that homosexuals relate to issues the way you do,
    with much denile.
    I would'nt expect to get a straight answer from any guy who makes the choice to allow another guy to try to impregnate his fecal matter.
    Maybe this is why homosexuals are the majority of serial killers.
