AR AG says OK to BS

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images Gaarkadopt-1

Last month, the disturbingly narrow-minded campaign to ban adoption by gay and unmarried couples in the state of Arkansas was dealt a blow when the Attorney General rejected the proposed initiative on the basis of its title and wording. Now, however, AG Dustin McDaniel has given the go-ahead to the so-called Arkansas Family Council's redrafted submission, thus allowing the group to go about its dishonorable mission of further writing gay bias into its state's history:

The group will now go about its shameful job of collecting 61,974 signatures of registered voters by July 7 in order to put the question of the ban on the 2008 ballot. And if passed there, we're sure the thousands upon thousands of kids in foster care and up for adoption will put the question of, "What the hell gave you the right to use your personal faith views and narrow definitions of 'family' to deprive me of a loving home?" to the state's residents sometime within the next 10-20 years.
