Two young children are to be adopted by a gay couple, despite the protests of their grandparents.
The devastated grandparents were told they would never see the youngsters again unless they dropped their opposition.
Right, this is completely wrong on so many levels. Certainly I don’t like the idea of gay adoption. But the biggest issue is
Why is the State dictating who raises the children at all?
This should be the decision of their family. The State has no business taking children away from a loving family, full stop.
KG at Crusader Rabbit asks “Time for insurrection?“. I don’t know if they are serious or not. But taking people’s children away is serious business, and some otherwise law-abiding people will feel forced into violence to protect them, especially in the heat of the moment. Policies like this could certainly lead to civil unrest, if not armed revolt. Hopefully our government can have the sense to step back and not provoke people into that.
