Adoption Institute Supports Gay Parents

Sometimes you hear something that makes so much sense, you just know that it will be an uphill struggle to get people to buy into it.

This Associated Press story is an example of that. A report issued by the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute features this quote:

"Laws and policies that preclude adoption by gay or lesbian parents disadvantage the tens of thousands of children mired in the foster care system who need permanent, loving homes."

This clearly makes too much sense to be easily assimilated into public policy.

Those who campaign for "traditional family values" would rather see those kids wait instead of letting the homos get ahold of them. They claim to be protecting innocent children, but what they are really defending is their own narrow-minded bigotry.

Now THAT doesn't make much sense, does it?


  1. I hope Pat Robertson is having a brain hemmorage.

  2. Let's not wish any physical pain on the good Dr. Robertson, but I think we would all be better off should he be struck mute.

  3. I think it's better for all of us when we do hear the stupuid remarks from Pat Robertson. I wish him and Fred Phelps a long life.

    They're doing a lot to change attitudes - AGAINST what they preach!

    And adoption by any qualified person - gay or straight, married or single - is badly needed with so many kids without a home today!
