Gays should not be allowed to raise children

I must voice my opinion regarding gay marriage. First, I really don’t care if you are gay, I have no ill feelings toward your orientation at all.

I do, however, strongly disagree and disprove of gay couples wanting to have children. The natural order of life (I did not say religion) requires the opposite sexes to get together in order to procreate, two people of the same sex cannot do this. So, gay people, knowing they cannot naturally reproduce, should NOT be allowed to adopt children as they gave the whole child rearing idea up when they acknowledged their same sex orientation.

Gay couples should NOT be entitled to child raising. If they want children they should try heterosexual relationships. Please, someone tell me what’s so hard to understand about this concept?
