Family Council plays hardball

The Family Council plans a campaign to put some sort of constitutional amendment or initiated act on the 2008 general election ballot dealing with gay foster parents and adoptions. It is a raw power play, not that there is anything wrong with that. Isn’t America all about greed and politics?

Homosexuals are not the best parents, however, straight folks don’t have much of a winning record either. The Family Council has never at any time lifted a finger to help the thousands of Arkansas children in state care, even though my Bible plainly advises that we are judged based on what we have done for the least fortunate.

The legislature grappled with this little problem in the last session. How would such a law be enforced? Do we register all gay people? Do we put individuals on trial to prove their sexual orientation?

What is really needed is more case workers to keep up with foster homes and adoptions. We need more hones with loving giving people that can take in a child, maybe even a child with problems. It’s easier to pick on gay folks, and it is cowardly.

One more thing, it should be harder to get a divorce when there are children. In those cases there should always be charges and a trial. Let’s take families seriously, and why not start with heterosexuals?
