McCain Opposes Gay Adoption

Curious as to why cultural conservatives haven't picked up on this. Maybe because it was in the New York Times?

Q: President Bush believes that gay couples should not be permitted to adopt children. Do you agree with that?

Mr. McCain: I think that we’ve proven that both parents are important in the success of a family so, no I don’t believe in gay adoption.

Q: Even if the alternative is the kid staying in an orphanage, or not having parents.

Mr. McCain: I encourage adoption and I encourage the opportunities for people to adopt children I encourage the process being less complicated so they can adopt as quickly as possible. And Cindy and I are proud of being adoptive parents.

Q: But your concern would be that the couple should a traditional couple

Mr. McCain: Yes.

On a separate note, McCain's experience as an adoptive parent must have strongly influenced his views on family and culture. It would be interesting to hear him elaborate.
