Gay Adoptions- This Year's Scapegoat

Sixteen states currently have major efforts underway to ban gay adoptions. This makes sense, you see, because we all know how important the sanctity of adoption has always been in the history of man.

Yeah, yeah, I know what you're going to say. Kids are supposed to be raised by a mother and a father. Three quick problems- 1. Shouldn't we be banning single people from adopting and/or making divorce more difficult too? 2. Wouldn't a gay family be better than jumping kids around between foster homes? 3. No studies show that gay families are detrimental to kids.

It's about bigotry. Or, maybe it's about "rallying the base." Or, maybe it's both. But, it's definitely not about the kids.
