Like American summer football practice, since its blazing hot outsideit is mandatory I post twice today…because I am stuck inside.
Tim Minnery of Focus on the Family, in an email I received, writes one of the most amazing paragraphs I have ever read from the so called Christian right:
The majority opinions of the Court seemed to ignore the fact that children already pay the price of other social experiments like divorce and cohabitation. Children of same-sex unions are intentionally denied a father or a mother—not because of injustice in the world but as a result of two adults in a same-sex relationship who decide that what they want is more important than what children need. That’s not justice.(1)
What? Children of gays are INTENTIONALLY denied a father or mother while those of divorce are denied same…..because of “injustice in the world”. Well now we finally have the profound reason that these Christian leaders casually dismiss what is happening in their churches. Injustice in the world just is….I guess, and their response is…….
“That ole injustice just keeps gettin’ worse out there folks, it is impacting well more than half of the children born since 1980.”
Now back to DOMA and the effect it has on less than 1% of children…..
(1) Note that he ends the piece by saying the effect of gay marriage on kids IS injustice after suggesting that it is NOT because of injustice….is this guy really over public policy for FOTF?
