No Gay Adoption in Florida

Tuesday, January 11, 2005

Bill O'Reilly, the man liberals love to hate, grilled the president of the Liberty Counsel who defended Florida's law that prevents gay couples from adopting; even though there's a stipulation permitting temporary foster-care placement.

I tend to agree with Mr. O'Reilly that while a gay couple is not ideal for raising children -- because neither is a single parent home -- a loving couple willing to nurture a child is much better for his or her upbringing than Florida's notoriously inept child custody services.

If the couple has a clean and proven record, as is the case of the couple whose lawsuit won't be heard by the Supreme Court, then I'm not going to make an argument against a child's life that will most likely be better in the home of two homosexuals than an institution that has a record of losing children.
