Audio: VA adoption conversation is 'getting personal', say those who personally slight us in order to stop fair adoption practices

by Jeremy Hooper

Even for the quality movement's reliably responsibility-shirking opposition, the claims in this Focus on the Family piece on Virginia adoption are simply unbelievable:

AUDIO SOURCE: Adoptions at Risk in Virginia [Focus on the Family's Citizenlink]

Wait -- gay activists are the ones making it "personal"? And by encouraging non-discriminatory adoption policies, we are the ones working to decrease the adoption rate? As I said: Unbelievable!

I would say that Focus and Mr. Friend are making it all about them, but that would actually be a mislabeling. Because if they really were making it all about themselves, they would actually take ownership of the fact -- THE FACT! -- that this conversation over non-discriminatory policies is only an issue because evangelical Christian adoption agencies wish to have it both ways. They wish to reap benefits from the state and maintain a sense of religious freedom, while at the same overextending that freedom so that is encroaches onto every citizen's life, regardless of his or her chosen faith beliefs. The sooner they tale ownership of this faith-based war against the personal, the better off we will all be.<
