I'm happy to view a gay marriage, although preferably it'd be a lesbian honeymoon that I'd be viewing.
Psychological research of this nature is so subjective that there will never be a definitive answer either way (and iamdavid has never claimed for there to be), so don't act like it's the be all and end all.

To me, the only acceptance reasons for letting a child stay in an orphanage or whatever is if the adoptive parents have a history of felonies of like child abuse, other physical or psychological handicap that may prevent them raising a kid, or it's obvious that they can't afford to raise the kid. Or something else obvious like that.
That's pretty much it. Whether you like it or not, thinking homosexuality is wrong is not a cultish or a fringe belief, and I would absolutely be against someone being denied an adoption because of their obvious religious convictions.
I do find tests like that annoying though, its an individual thing whether someone's fit for parenting and to me, sexuality is irrelevant.
Edit: was about to add 'when compared to other factors' but I wouldn't really like to deny anyone a child if they genuinely want to look after them.

Everyone wants to change the world, noone wants to change himself.
An interesting little example of why the wording makes a difference today (I thought...). We got our census form, and on it you declare your relationship to other people in your house - you can be 'married', 'in a same-sex civil partnership' or 'partner'. So straight and gay people who are married/civil partnered are having to declare their sexuality on the census, whereas I, as I am unmarried/'living in sin', do not.
Couldn't help but love the fact that our courts made that ruling just a little bit, though. Thinking homosexuality is evil doesn't make you less fit to raise a child than an orphanage but it's nice that the legal system looks upon such views with such disdain.
