@NoodleKaboodle:
"I can tell you how it's bigoted. Two different judges approved these adoptions. . . . The AG's office is only doing it because they don't agree with the lifestyle of these two couples. That's the definition of bigotry my friend."

I don't believe in the infallibility of judges. Maybe the AGs office is doing it because:
1) it is their job to defend the state's laws and they are concerned that same sex adoption could be used as a wedge to force Utah to accept SSM, 2)they could be thinkng that if we redefine marriage to include one type of non-procreative union then we are going to have give marriage benefits to all other non-procreative unions and/or that defending traditional marriage is a way to send a message that couples should marry before they have children. 4) etc.

A few years back a Palestinian attacked an Israeli military outpost in the West Bank. People referred to him as a terrorist. There was nothing terroristic about his attack. He attacked a military facility occupying his country.

The term 'terrorist' is misused like the term 'bigotry' is being misused in this debate.

Listening to Doug Wright on KSL this morning he interviewed the lawyer for one of the couples trying to adopt. Reyes really took a blind sided swipe at them with this legal maneuvering. I felt sorry for the people that got hit by this injunction.

...sadly society should not be surprised to watch so many same sex couples who rush to wed all too soon split apart. Statistics are not on their side. Getting what they wanted is one thing...the reality of commitment and loyalty may well be something else altogether.

We already have ''The Family: A Proclamation to the World'' regarding the design of the family unit as designed by our Creator and doctrine that runs counter to that Proclamation is false and cannot be trusted.

-------------------

The average time those couples that wed in December/Jan is over 10 years together. Compared to the average time my Mormon friends date before marriage, I think these couples have a good idea what it takes to be committed. Of all the people that I know who married during that time, only one couple had been dating less than 1 year. Can you say that about most couples who are marrying here in Utah?

Their chances of staying together are excellent. If they had been together for so long without being married, what is to stop them with marriage?
People have the idea that these were just couples who were dating and just decided to run down and get married because they could! Not true! These couples were already committed to each other and when the opportunity opened up, emails went out, and these committed couples got married.
