Suffer the Children
As the New York Senate continues to debate marriage equality ... not to mention whether I can be, for the first time in my life, actually proud of the New York Legislature ... we have these words of "wisdom" on the issue:
Rev. Duane Motley, a Christian lobbyist, said in Albany on Wednesday that legalizing gay marriage would "undermine the stability of our society" because he said a child of a gay couple could only have one biological parent.I didn't know that the bill would actually be instigating human cloning!
I suppose we could infer that the Rev's ability to express himself is of the same low quality as his moral and civic reasoning and assume that he meant that only one of the child's parental caretakers could also be his or her biological parent.
So what? Are we now to do away with adoption as undermining the stability of society, because it is often the case that neither caretaker is a biological parent?
Is what the Rev pining for the good ol' days of Oliver Twist-like orphanages?
Why are you so against that?
Many thanks for providіng thiѕ infо.
