Why have you said that it’s not right for Jews to adopt and to raise non Jewish children who have no homes? Isn’t it a kiddush Hashem?
The answer is, it’s stupidity. Let me explain something to you. What mitzvah is it for a Jew to raise up gentile boys? You mean to say that the gentiles don’t have institutions for them? Aren’t there plenty of gentiles in the world – even more than Jews? Aren’t there gentile millionaires who have plenty of money for that purpose? Aren’t there so many Jewish institutions that need your dollars and you’re wasting your money on these children – money that these children can get without you?
Who says you are obligated to bring an Asian child over from across the seas and bring them up in your home? What kind of mitzvah is that? To bring up goyim? A goy is no mitzvah to bring up. Let goyim bring him up! There are rich Chinese in America. Reverend Moon himself has enough money to bring up all the Vietnamese children. They don’t need you.
So here’s a fool – this fool, he takes two children, or three children, from goyim; he adopts them and he works like a horse all his life to support them. And what happens eventually? They became goyim. One is a dope addict, a tramp; and the father weeps his eyes out for his son, the sheigetz who is going on the derech hayashar.
And here’s a yeshiva man who had no children, so he adopted two gentile girls. The older one, when she was eighteen she discovered that she’s a gentile, so she threw everything away – she still lives in the house because her step-mother loves her too much to let her go, to let her the shiksah go outside.
So these shotim are spending their money, and when they die, these adopted children are going to inherit all his money. Instead of his money going to yeshivos and he might get a little Olam Haba for all the labor that his wasted life was spent on, instead all his money goes to שקצים ורמשים. It’s a wasted life, a ruined life.
