You're out of order, Edwin Poots

Lindy McDowell

Edwin Poots is against gay couples adopting because apparently, it is not "the natural order".

Does Mr Poots think being raised in care is the natural order?

Because that's actually the alternative facing countless children who might otherwise be offered a loving home by a couple who are excluded simply because they've demonstrated their commitment to each other. Ironically, a single gay person can adopt a child. Gay parents can and do have children of their own.

But a loving, devoted couple of gay parents adopting a needy child and providing him or her with a home?

According to Mr Poots' natural order, that's out of order.
