"Oh no. The kid might catch the "gay virus" and pass it onto other preschoolers thus turning them into mini Satan-worshippers. I would think that they would want to have this kid at the school so they could tell him that homosexuality is…"
"I'm okay with people having however many kids they want as long as they are all loved and cared for. I wonder if your friend is against the idea of a Jewish family having lots of kids... what about a Hindu family from India? Should they all…"
