STEPHANOPOULOS: What is your position on gay adoption? You told the "New York Times" you were against it, even in cases where the children couldn't find another home. But then your staff backtracked a bit.

What is your position?

MCCAIN: My position is, it's not the reason why I'm running for president of the United States. And I think that two parent families are best for America.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, what do you mean by that, it's not the reason you're running for president of the United States?

MCCAIN: Because I think -- well, I think that it's -- it is important for us to emphasize family values. But I think it's very important that we understand that we have other challenges, too.

I'm running for president of the United States, because I want to help with family values. And I think that family values are important, when we have two parent -- families that are of parents that are the traditional family.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But there are several hundred thousand children in the country who don't have a home. And if a gay couple wants to adopt them, what's wrong with that?

MCCAIN: I am for the values that two parent families, the traditional family represents.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So, you're against gay adoption.

MCCAIN: I am for the values and principles that two parent families represent. And I also do point out that many of these decisions are made by the states, as we all know.

And I will do everything I can to encourage adoption, to encourage all of the things that keeps families together, including educational opportunities, including a better economy, job creation.

And I'm running for president, because I want to help families in America. And one of my positions is that I believe that family values and family traditions are preserved.

I would take his answer(s) to mean yes; he is "against" single parent homes. I wouldn't fault him for that - stable traditional two-parent homes are typically better environments to raise children.

So how would he insure, or how would anyone insure, that both parents stay in the relationship and stay true to the commitment to raise their child?

His answers read like they were pre-programmed into a robot.

By the looks of it, they were.

I was actually listening and it sounded worse than it reads. :)

I will admit Mr. Obama seems more eloquent when he dodges questions.

I would hope he would say he cannot... NO ONE can. Especially not the f***ing government. ;)

True, but the governement wants to insure that the 2 parent system is male/female only, regardless of the childs needs. I mean he said even if the child has nowhere else to go. People want the govt to stay out of their lives, but they want the govt to get involved in others lives when it suits their political/religious beliefs. :shake:

That is if they are stable. I've seen plenty of single parent homes that are much healthier than a lot of two parent homes.
