I knew Joshua Charles was a Worldnetdaily columnist, but I didn’t know he was the co-author of a book with Glenn Beck until Right Wing Watch pointed that out. In a new WND column, Charles absolutely loses his shit over the idea of gay people being parents, calling it “disgusting” and “evil.”
I’ve been seeing more and more stories about children being created (by sperm donors and surrogate mothers) specifically for gay couples.
I find this to be a horrific and monstrous evil, because by default it creates children who will oftentimes never know at least one of their parents, who in most cases can’t know who one of their parents are and who in most cases, even if the parent is known, are separated from them nonetheless. At the very least, it puts a child in a situation in which he or she shall be deprived of a mother or a father, the two halves of humanity all children need.
This is EVIL. To create children and intentionally (as opposed to true adoption where a tragedy has intervened to create a need) deprive them of their mother and father is EVIL. Every single person in this world has a mother and has a father. While of course it doesn’t always work out this way because of the trials of life, the ideal is a mother and a father. And isn’t that the point? When a child is separated from his mother or father, prior to this brave new world we live in, that was a tragedy! Even if the dad was a schmuck or the mom was on drugs, or whatever the case may be, it was a tragedy that that child was deprived of a mother or a father. Now we accept it as a matter of course, because homosexual people want their “own” children at the price of them being oftentimes permanently separated from one of their parents…Children need the masculine and the feminine. This represents the full diversity of life. They need, if life tragedy has not prevented them from having as much, a mother and a father. To create them in this manner, to deprive them of one of the halves that made them in this manner, as a matter of course, is from the pit of Hell.
Why does this hateful rhetoric matter? Because Glenn Beck claims that he doesn’t know anyone who is anti-gay. This while daily hanging out with and promoting the work of some of the most virulently anti-gay people in the country, like David Barton and this guy.
