Protect children. Like in a real way.

Good advice:

Stop making gay adoption political

By Ken Manford and Jennifer Chrisler

A week before the Republican gubernatorial primary, Karen Handel said gay parenting is not “in the best interest of the child.” When asked by an Atlanta TV reporter why she thought gay parents aren’t legitimate, Handel replied, “Because I don’t.” She went on to say she would outlaw gay adoptions.

As gay parents, we strongly disagree with Handel on the legitimacy of gay parenting. We also resent the way gay adoption was turned into a political circus as each of the Republican candidates felt obligated to prove their anti-gay credentials with voters in the final weeks of the general primary.
