How do children fare who are raised by same–sex couples?

I tried my best to answer these questions — if you really want to know, ask Riley Roberts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDqiTt7mfsQ

Question 6a: What is the estimated proportion of children and adolescents in these cases, as regards children who are born and raised in regularly constituted families?

Currently 3% of adopted children are raised by homosexual partners. As a proportion of the total number of children in two parent families, this must be very, very tiny. No statistics seem to have been gathered to give an accurate picture.

26% of children live with one parent, 73% with two and 1% are looked after by the local authority.

Question 6b: How do parents in these situations approach the Church? What do they ask? Do they request the sacraments only or do they also want catechesis and the general teaching of religion?

The numbers are too small to answer this question. One assumes they will be treated equally with any other child.

Question 6c: How do the particular Churches attempt to meet the needs of the parents of these children to provide them with a Christian education?

The numbers are too small to answer this question. One assumes they will be treated equally with any other child.

Question 6d: What is the sacramental practice in these cases: preparation, administration of the sacrament and the accompaniment?

The numbers are too small to answer this question. One assumes they will be treated equally with any other child.
