Is same-sex parenting just like grandparents raising their orphaned grandchildren?
The nations of the world say no.
On second thought, try “Hell no.”
But that doesn’t stop the shills for Big Gay, who stand to make billions off expanded gay “adoption” (I use that term loosely), from continuously drawing the lame parallel. Just check out this section of an article that ran in the Daily Beast, by Jay Michaelson, on the United Nations’ recent resolution protecting the rights of the family:
So, an amendment was proposed – formally put forward by Uruguay – that would acknowledge that “various forms of the family exist.” This amendment would cover not just same-sex couples, of course, but families where grandparents raise the kids, or single-parent families – anything other than the assumed norm of the “traditional” family. And it would make clear that subsequent UN action could not be used as a club against families diverging from that norm. But as soon as Uruguay proposed the amendment, Russia pulled a little-used administrative trick – a “no-action” motion – to prevent it from even being discussed.
I’m not endorsing Russia or Vladimir Putin. But then again, you don’t have to support Putin or Russia to see through the hapless obfuscations behind a statement like “various forms of the family exist.”
The final resolution passed, minus Uruguay’s silly attempt to sneak gay parenting in. The council declared that the family is the building block of society and must be protected. The vote was not even close: 26 votes for, 14 votes against, 6 abstentions. It’s not like all 26 countries that want to protect the family are mesmerized by Vladimir Putin.
