May I congratulate Labour leader Joseph Muscat on his stand on gay adoption. It is indeed a very welcome development.
One obviously hopes that his position of “not being against” develops into “being actively in favour of” gay adoptions.
Let’s face it, if a gay couple can give a child a loving home, then it is a blessing.
What we are dealing with here is the child’s well-being and a gay couple can guarantee it as much as the next straight couple.
The problem is not having two fathers or two mothers. The problem is an immature society that frowns on such a family. But family it is.
