If you homos break that kid, it's coming out of your allowance

by Jeremy Hooper

   Responding to the news that Catholic Charities of Boston (a Mass. faith-based adoption agency) has been denied an exemption to state law that would have allowed them to prevent adoption by homosexual couples, Concerned Women For America's Robert Knight (pic.) says, in part:

KNIGHT: ...this tells the more liberal people inside Catholic charities in other places, 'Hey, maybe we should go ahead and open up our adoptions to homosexuals couples, after all they're doing it in Boston.' This is the broken window theory, where you walk by a building and, ya know, if all the windows are intact, everything's fine until somebody breaks one of the windows and then quickly after that all of the windows get broken. That's what happens when you allow a breach in the moral standards you have for any policy, so we are afraid how it will affect Catholic charities nationwide.

Responding to Knight, we say, in full:

While sometimes a pain in the ass, kids are not a pane of glass, and we gays are not a baseball hellbent on smashing their translucent existence. If anyone's policies and rhetoric are snowballing into a metaphorical mess of destruction, it would be the truly damaging sticks and stones that you and your "pro-family" cronies routinely hurl in the general direction of the homosexual community's figurative window.

Loving, monogamous homosexual couples being allowed to adopt --
not "a breach in moral standards."

Working day and night to denounce a community of decent people at every turn --
::SMASH:: great, there goes another window.
