Video: In which Jennifer Roback Morse offends *all* adoptive parents/kids of non-bio fams

by Jeremy Hooper

This from the National Organization For Marriage/Ruth Institute's Jennifer Roback Morse:

So in short: There are going to be types of families with which Jennifer doesn't agree, so she'll do whatever she can to scare folks away from them and their legal protection. Never mind that the reality of the world looks nothing like the vision she considers to be the gold standard. Never mind that those who do employ adoption, utilize certain fertility methods, or who have selected a parent other than the birth mom or dad (for whatever reason) are, by and large, asking only for freedom, not blessing/opinion/encroachment into anyone else's life. Never mind the countless children who'd give anything to have a parent. Damn them all. The selfish socially conservative agenda focuses on their world, not the world.

The anti-equality crowd's goal is much larger than just the LGBT vehicle, and especially larger than the NOM crowd's current "protect marriage" path. The first step is realizing this overarching problem. The next demands that we *all* care more about our shared societal picture than the far-right's myopic Polaroid. For that one seems like it would exclude us (i.e. all who break from this portrait) in a flash.
