OK, for all that want to bounce G-d's word around, he tells us that he is the only one to judge, so mind your small minded business, here are two people that love each other and made a Conscience decision to start a family because they love each other and and have enough love to give to children.

How many children are brought into this world because they are the result of drug using women using thier bodies for prostitution/sex/money, or hormonal teenagers, or adults for that matter. How many "unwanted" pregnancies occured this year, how many chidren are in foster care due to heterosexual realtionships gone bad.....or % of children that come from divorced/unmarried heterosexual parents.

Here are two parents that love thier children... Get focused on more important issues, they are out there

Just saw the post 30: "same sex couples cannot create a child. What does that tell you." Tammy & Melissa did, they did so by alternative means, just as those that single moms, infertile heterosexual couples, and others use... Open your mind, you'll meet a lot of beautifull people

Children deserve to be raised by a mother and father. Melissa and Tammy have millions of dollars, hence they can BUY anything they want, including sperm.
Just like in the Black Community (which is an extremely matriarcal society, with fathers largely absent) where kids grow up angry and resentful because they never had a healthy male role model in their lives. Of course, their society is in need of severe self-intervention due to the out-of-wedlock birth rate and the fact that the men father multiple babies with multiple women.
There are definitely things that money CANNOT buy! How do you explain to the children that there is no Daddy and never will be? Or that most of the men around their lives are gay?

We, are not amused.    

Once again, pay attention:
Girls with girls=HOT,
Guys with guys=SICK.
Are we to assume that STEVE MILLER is the one who gave of his manly essence for this science expermient? Gutiar god in heaven, I hope not! And whom but some low-class cracker asses would name a girl Johnnie? Does "Johnnie" have a say in her orientation, or does her name insure that she will be a Butch fuzzbumper? Good luck growing up kids, I don't know but it looks like pretty soon the samesex squad will make it so EVERYONE WILL HAVE TO EAT AT THE "Y" AND SMELL THE ITCHY MAN STARFISH!

#2 Linda, why don't you tell us how you really feel?? Homophobe, bigot. What people do in their own personal life is their business not yours. YOU ARE NOT GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Grow up already. If anyone and I mean anyone in this world is lucky enough to find love and commitment with someone, then more power to them. You are probably a closet case. Come out already. Be happy :-)

Well the name Johnnie for a girl is no more wrong than "Stevie" "billy jo" there are lots of girls with a name that is used for a boy....and what is wrong with gays raising children they are people too and can make loving parents......and who are we to judge them......it may not be my choice of a lifestyle.....and after all they are watched more closely than "straight" people.....in the child raising dept.......and god knows there are many "straights" who shouldn't have been parents......Good luck to Melissa, Tammy and the kids......(last father of Melissa's children was David Crosby......I haven't heard of any wrong doing in the care of these children.....

My Grandmother's name was Johnnie, born in the early 1900's. Funny, I don't remember anyone indicating my great grandparents were low-class cracker asses. A name does not reflect who you are or who you will become; your actions as a human being speak volumes.

I agree Vicki; I have a great-aunt named Johnnie who was born in the 1940's. She happens to be named after her father, who was never called a low-class cracker ass. Anyone can be good parents if they want to be...straight, gay or otherwise. Who are we to judge? We are all equal in God's eyes.

I also have an Aunt named Johnnie, also a niece that was named after my late Father Jess, we named her Jessie. I love the old names that really mean something. What about Apple, and a lot of the really dumb names these kids will have to be teased about.

I just love that these 2 woman have 2 little girls now in their lives. When people who have been trying to have kids for years cannot have them and sometimes do not have the money to adopt. THis is the kinda crap that makes me sick...

Why is it that you and your hero Rosie assume that everyone else in the world is"just a little gay"? Not everyone is bent that-a-way. You act as if the only "sensitive" people in the world are NOT normal. Being gay doesn't mean that everyone else is NOT happy with whom they are. I think it is SICK that normal people who want to be a Mom and a Dad are made to feel by people like you that they have committed a crime, when the only "crime" here is aganist nature, Same sex advocates are offensive to the laws of our Heavenly Father. God have mercy on your sick and sinful souls!
