Kentucky-anti-gay-adoptionAnother southern state legislature is focusing on fostering gay demonization rather than focusing on the fostering of children. This time it's Kentucky, led by state senator Gary Tapp (R-Big Shocker), that seeks to adopt bias.

This from the AP:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A bill seeking to prohibit gay and lesbian couples from adopting children has won approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The measure would also bar unmarried heterosexual couples from adoption or foster care.

"Protect children": Greatly decrease the chances that they will find a loving home. Makes SO much sense, doesn't it? About as much sense as using religious-based values judgment to influence civil government.

Your thoughts

The day will soon come when this will all be taken care of on the Federal Level and marriage equality including full parental rights will be a federal law and states like Kentucky, Tennessee and others will just have to deal with it.

Thankfully, the chances are VERY good that this will die in the House.
