When applying to adopt a child or become a foster parent, should one's sexual orientation be a factor?

Poll Results: 3,845 votes
No, sexual orientation has nothing to do with parenting abilities.
Yes, it will inevitably impact the child.
I'm not sure.

No. Sadly, though, it's bigoted people who may cause problems for the child, not the sexual orientation of the parent and then the bigots blame the parent.

No. Love and the ability to be a good parent should be the only criteria.
