Ark. anti-gays: Saving us from sh*tty Father's/Mother's Day gifts

by Jeremy Hooper

The so-called Arkansas Family Council is actively working to have a measure banning gays from adopting or fostering children placed on the state's 2008 ballot:

Because seriously, what says "family" more than: "Stay in state care, children in need of homes -- our interpretations of Leviticus and Romans I deem your potential mommies and daddies unsavory and unfit!"? After all, "family" is only a concept for evangelical conservatives. The rest of just feast on the scraps of kinship that they don't want.

It's really quite disturbing. But back to this particular embrace of aggressive ignorance...

To get the measure on the '08 ballot, our militant foes must first get the language approved by the attorney general, then they'll have gather around 78,000 signatures in a petition drive. However, in order to get their place in the Annals of Mean-Spirited Historical Missteps, they will simply have to sit back and wait for the years to pass.

Your thoughts

Minor quibble about the post title: "AK" is the postal code for Alaska; "AR" is the one for Arkansas.

OH GOD -- thanks for catching that. Ironically, I had meant to write "Ark." anyway, not AR or AK.

Fixed.
