A Vile Rant Against Gay Adoption

Tim Dunkin, whose primary qualification for writing at Renew America seems to be that he’s a Christian, has a vile and bigoted rant against gay adoption based upon a single example of what he thinks is bad parenting by a lesbian couple (though it isn’t clear that it actually is such a thing).

Along with gay “marriage,” the adoption of children by homosexual couples is fast becoming one of the foremost elements of the radical homosexualist agenda to be judicially imposed upon this country. As this country ramps up its efforts to corrupt and degrade the innocence of our children, judges have been forcing us – against the wills of often times large majorities of the people in the states – to allow sodomites to adopt children. The purpose for this, as is apparent to pretty much any clear minded observer, is to allow gays to “recruit” children into the constellation of “queer” lifestyles since they are unable to have children by natural means. As a result, they are seeking to draw in children into lifestyles that are completely contrary to natural law and to its Author, God…

This story certainly goes a long way toward substantiating the belief that gays want to adopt kids so as to “convert” them to the homosexual lifestyle.

So why aren’t children raised by gay parents not more likely to be gay than those raised by straight parents?

Let’s face it – handing children over to gays to be raised is as much abuse as is locking them in hot cars for hours on end. In fact, it’s even worse – you can rescue a child from a car and make sure it never happens to him or her again, but once you start yielding to the fallacies that facilitate gay adoption and start allowing judges to force it into place via judicial fiat, you are handing children over to on-going, endemic abuse that will last for the next 18 years. That is a crime against humanity, and no sane society would do this. If the stories I’ve seen and read about the way many kids are “raised” by gay “parents” are any indication, a child caught up in this is in for a long, miserable, hellish ride. If, as a society, we claim to truly be against the abuse and harm of our children, then we have a moral responsibility to keep them out of the hands of gay couples, whether “married” or not.

Isn’t it funny how just one story of a bad gay parent is enough to make gay parenting a terrible thing? The existence of millions and millions of straight parents who are emotionally, physically and sexually abusive is not, of course, thought to be an argument against straight parents. But just one example of the contrary is enough to prove that gay parenting should be banned. That’s called bigotry and irrationality.

    Don’t forget the children who actually die from treatable illnesses because their parents’ religious beliefs lead them to call a faith healer or an exorcist.

    How about someone like Mary Cheney who gave birth to both her children and is married to her wife. If adoption by same sex couples is an abomination, then so is the case of two lesbians, one or both of whom have given birth to their children. Therefore, Dunkin donuts should be demanding that Cheney’s children be taken away from her.

    Why would you assume that he isn’t suggesting such things?

  • John Pieret

    Wait a minute! A lesbian couple adopts a transgender child, who from the age of three identifies as a girl, and that’s recruiting her into the constellation of “queer” lifestyles?

    Fine. How about you go out and get one?

    I may be wrong, but I’m guessing that the vast majority of gays came from a family with heterosexual parents. So how exactly did they get recruited?

    And speaking as an adoptive parent, adopted children are loved and appreciated at least as much as non-adopted children. Maybe more…you have to go through a lot more time, effort and cost to adopt. Of course there are always exceptions.

    The only thing the stories he’s seen and read about are an indication of, they’re an indication of the fear and hatred of an ever decreasing population as the world around them changes for the better.

    The adoption of children by homosexual couples is being judicially imposed upon this country? What do they do…show up at a gay couple’s door, hand them a toddler, and make them raise it by court order?

  • Look, it’s better that a child have no parents than have two loving parents from a group I don’t like. That’s just common sense.

    @greg1466 – You are totally correct, LGBT people don’t need to recruit, because as long as straight people continue to have children, our stocks will be replenished, as it were. Sadly many of those kids will grow up in hateful and rejecting homes (something like 30 – 40% of all homeless teenagers are “throwaways,” tossed from their homes because they are LGBT), while those few lucky enough to be raised by LGBT parents will have a built-in support system. I think Armistead Maupin, through his character Michael Tolliver in the Tales of the City series, expressed the phenomenon of growing up gay best, in the letter he had Michael write to his mother when she got involved with Anita Bryant’s anti-gay group in FL:

    No, Mama, I wasn’t “recruited.” No seasoned homosexual ever served as my mentor. But you know what? I wish someone had. I wish someone older than me and wiser than the people in Orlando had taken me aside and said, “You’re all right, kid. You can grow up to be a doctor or a teacher just like anyone else. You’re not crazy or sick or evil. You can succeed and be happy and find peace with friends – all kinds of friends – who don’t give a damn who you go to bed with. Most of all, though, you can love and be loved, without hating yourself for it.”

    But no one ever said that to me, Mama. I had to find it out on my own, with the help of the city that has become my home. I know this may be hard for you to believe, but San Francisco is full of men and women, both straight and gay, who don’t consider sexuality in measuring the worth of another human being.

    These aren’t radicals or weirdos, Mama. They are shop clerks and bankers and little old ladies and people who nod and smile to you when you meet them on the bus. Their attitude is neither patronizing nor pitying. And their message is so simple: Yes, you are a person. Yes, I like you. Yes, it’s all right for you to like me, too.

    @-1, Tim Dunkin

    If the stories I’ve seen and read

    I think I spotted the critical thinking failure, here.

  • Earl “Butch” Kimmerling is an example of the dangers in allowing heterosexual fundamentalist christians adopt kids instead of gay parents.

    Hey, if anti-gay types can make assertions about “one represents all”, so can pro-gay voices when talking about christians.

  • coragyps

    “since they are unable to have children by natural means”

    “Unable” does not have the English meaning that Dunkin seems to think it has….

    If this creature wishes to name himself after a coffee shop chain, Dunkin Donuts would seem a poor choice. My suggestion is Chock Full o’ Nuts.

  • #9: Back when I was still going to church I was asked to chair a six-month discussion at our church (Episcopal) on our attitudes on sexuality, I read the “Letter to Mama” aloud to the committee. They were all impressed.

    I graduated from high school in 1967 from a Chicago public school. I realized I was gay when I was 11. In high school I was lucky to have three gay teachers who took it upon themselves, individually, to take care of me. They encouraged me. They were examples of real gay people, not the common image of gays as aggressive, predatory monsters. There was never anything sexual at all about our relationships. They made life in a mostly blue-collar high school and encouraged me to look beyond my situation.

    I am also the biological father of two adult sons. They were raised around gay people but they both turned out straight. Go figure.
