Janet Parshall, conservative radio talk show host, was on Larry King Live earlier this month during a discussion of the motion picture Brokeback Mountain (sublime, btw. I'm posting about it later even though everything to be said has already been said...don't care....it haunts me....I loved it....). Anyway, here's an excerpt from gaywired.com of what she had to say about gays adopting and gay marriage. There are so many things wrong with practically every word, where do you even start?
Opining on gay marriage, Parshall called it a "pretend family," arguing that "God himself" defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman, and that "everything else is a fraudulent misrepresentation." She then asserted that
allowing a gay couple to adopt constituted "state-sanctioned child abuse because you've purposely taken away either a momma or a daddy, and mom and dad are both necessary in a child's life."
OK, let's play a variant on that game where you have to find all the things wrong in a picture. You know, where the wagon wheel is actually an apple pie? I'll start. Are the gays adopting kids OUT of two parent families or are they trying to provide a home for infants with no parents at all?
