rather see a kid die,”a famous Mexican singer responded this
week when asked what she thought of gay adoption. The singer, Paquita
la del Barrio is now in hot water. Her expressions of personal conviction
are described by NBC as “homophobic attacks.” It
might be more accurate to describe them as timely (if fiery) critique:
she spoke days after homosexual marriage became legal in Mexico
sentiment is timely for another reason. “Every Child Deserves
a Family,” HR 3827, is now before the US House. It would remove
government money from American adoption agencies if they discriminate
against gay would-be parents.
many Americans believe kids do best with a married mother and father.
But is it worse to have homosexual parents than no parents? Would
it be better, as the Latina singer said, to die on the street? That’s
the way the argument is framed by advocates of the bill. They say
kids could grow up happy and well-rounded with homosexual parents
but instead are aging out of adoption agencies and ending up on
kids fare so happily? Many governments say no. In many parts of
the world including Florida and Utah, gay adoption is illegal. This
isn’t old-fashioned prejudice or merely religious conviction.
It’s also common sense.In 2005 before the Virginia Senate,
Robert H. Knight testified to the obvious, saying, “children
in single-mother homes can tell you that they don't crave another
mom; they want a father. Kids in single-father homes don't crave
another daddy; they want a mom.”
there are far darker consequences. This year at a symposium in Mexico,
by neuropsychiatry and behavioral science Prof. George Rekers was
presented which reveals that children adopted by homosexuals suffer
from greater suicidal tendencies than in the general population.
Presenters said “boys and girls adopted by lesbian and homosexual
couples show a greater level of stress than that which is already
generated by their status as orphans or children abandoned by their
biological parents.” Rekers’ study comments on the well-documented
fact that homosexual unions “are significantly and substantially
less stable and shorter on average compared with marriages between
a man and woman.”
Lerner is a social scientist and author of No Basis: What the Studies
Don’t Tell Us About Same-Sex Parenting. He
says the documented
greater instability of homosexual couplings is traumatic for
children. In addition, “there is evidence that homosexuality,
male or female, is associated with adjustment problems such as depression,
anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug abuse, and attempts at suicide
and, of course, there is the risk for gay men of venereal disease
including but not limited to AIDS. It is not too large a stretch
to conclude at least tentatively that high degrees of: family instability,
sexual-orientation confusion, parental emotional problems including
higher rates of mental illness, higher risk of disease from high
rates of sexual promiscuity, may make gays and lesbians less fit
as parents than heterosexuals…”
With respect to same sex parents adopting children, we as a
society may have already repeated the mistake we made concerning
divorce. When the divorce laws were liberalized (beginning during
the late 60s early 70s and extending through the next decade or
so), it was claimed that scientific research showed that the children
would not be harmed and therefore a high divorce rate would not
be a problem…Divorce can and does cause a good deal of harm
for children… Although this finding is now widely accepted,
the new conventional wisdom does not help the many children who
suffered because their parents were told that divorce was perfectly
ok. Damage occurred that was not necessary and would not have
occurred except for the acceptance of wishful thinking disguised
as social science evidence.
homosexual parenting damage kids the way divorce does? Yes.
suggests orphanages as a possible alternative for needy children.
His words, like those of the Latina singer, would certainly outrage
many. Yet in a great deal of the world, homosexual activity is recognized
as a sinful choice that separates us eternally from God. One of
a child’s most important needs is to be sheltered from influence
into this desperately sinful and addictive lifestyle. And there
is clear evidence that being raised by homosexuals does place children
at far higher risk for practicing it themselves.
years ago, two
University of California sociologists published research in
the American Sociological Review which was hailed by homosexual
advocates for proving that kids raised by homosexuals are different.
The article said such children are more likely to live outside “gender
stereotypes” and to experiment with homosexuality. Boys raised
by lesbians will show fewer masculine traits, the study said; youth
raised by lesbians are also far more likely to engage in same-sex
activists welcomed this study because they believe gender-bending
and sexual experimentation by kids is a good thing! More damaging
reports are certain to be hidden from view. In Scotland in 2009,
a freedom of information request had to be used to get the results
of unflattering government research into gay adoption. The report
said children of homosexual parents are more likely to be bullied
than other children, and that their parents are likely to ignore
the situation for fear of being blamed. The Scottish government
decided to do the research after the bad publicity of a government
decision to place two children with a gay couple despite their grandparents’
desire to adopt them.
others truths are being hidden by the powerful blinders of a pro-gay
agenda in research and media? If HR 3827 is passed, religious adoption
agencies will have no choice but to submit and place vulnerable
kids with homosexuals. This is a travesty to the rationally sound
and deeply held convictions of so many Americans.
you believe homosexuals should be able to adopt children or not,
you should defend the right of agencies to serve children the way
they believe is best. HR 3827 is nothing short of forcing mercy
organizations into social re-engineering, against their conscience.

Many homosexuals prey on children. And this bill would force religious

those new to this controversy, please check the latest articles
in our Rev
Ted Pike and Harmony Grant archive to see where protests should
be directed to be the most effective. Sometimes the "action"
is in the House, and other times it is in the Senate or in the Executive
Office. Sometimes it involves arresting a bill before it gets through
a committee, or it at other times it may have already slipped through
and now faces either a floor vote or the possibility of getting
snuck through as a rider to another bill. Also, please link to the
News Rips "Pedophile-Protecting" Hate Bill:
News anchor Megyn] Kelly interviewed Rep. Steve King, who attempted
to amend the hate bill in Judiciary last week to explicitly exclude
pedophiles. King reported how Rep. Alcee Hastings, a pro-hate
bill Democrat, proudly claimed practitioners of 547 paraphilias
listed by the American Psychiatric Association can "live
without fear" once the hate bill is passed.
Kelly also expressed indignation that, while the Democrats acted
to protect pedophiles, they rejected Republican efforts to obtain
similar special protection for war veterans. Especially in times
of unpopular wars, these are common victims of "hate crimes,"
spit upon or attacked because of who they are -- military defenders
of America's freedom...

laws. If anything, we need even more freedom of speech to speak
truth to power, sort out our problems, and develop peaceful strategies
to handle high level malefactors. This is why we urgently need
for members of Congress to not only take a principled stand and
stop all hate crime legislative initiatives, but to also roll
back all the existing hate crime laws currently on the books.
crime laws actually pose a major national security threat. They
condition Americans to feel that certain types of thought are inherently
immoral or illegal, even if they do not result in any form of violence
or infringement on the rights of others.
